My great.great.great.grandmother, Elizabeth
Phipps (c.1792-1869), was quite a girl - a convicted felon,
she bore at least ten children (their paternity is hard to identify
- mostly James Westbrook?) and, in
1834, married William Magick a much older man who reputedly
lived to 108.
Elizabeth and William lived
out their lives in March Street, Richmond, New South Wales.
Elizabeth, daughter of Edmund
Phipps and Susannah Harris, arrived in Australia on Wanstead on
January 9th 1814 having been convicted with James
Westbrook and transported for life. Her first assignment
was to Mr. Cox at Windsor. She had gained her freedom by 1822.
