Whitlam, Sarah

Convicted of stealing cloth and clothing. According to John Nicol, with whom Sarah partnered and had a child with on the voyage to Sydney, she was 'as kind and true a creature as ever lived' and 'had been banished for a mantle she had borrowed from an acquaintance' who accused her of stealing it. Shortly after arriving in Sydney, Nicol left port promising to return once her sentence expired but never did so. Sarah married a fellow convict and was sent to Norfolk Island. She later departed for Europe, though what happened after her departure from the island is unknown.
