Claimed convict


(Mary) Margaret Stocker (STUCKER on her marriage certificate) was born in about 1778 as her age was stated to be 16 when she was convicted in 1794 of stealing two yards of printed cotton, value 5 shillings. She was sentenced to 7 years transportation and arrived in Sydney aboard "Indispensible" in 1796. She married Isaac Cornwell (Cornwall) in 1797 and lived with him on a farm in North Richmond. They had five children: Isaac (1799-1888, m. Eleanor Granville, then Mary Eaton), Abraham (1802-1884, m. Susannah Eaton in 1824), Rebecca (1805-1832, m. Richard Sargeant in 1821), John (1807-1889, m. Ann Eaton in 1830, Charlotte (1809-1904, m. Edward Lewis in 1827).
After her husband was shot dead on New Years Day 1811, she married John Stevenson, who had arrived as a convict in 1791. They had two children: Helen (1813), William (1815-1874).
Margaret died 18th September, 1828. The death certificate states that she was 53, throwing doubt on the year of her birth. She is buried in the churchyard of St.Peters, Richmond, along with many members of her family.
