    Here's another biography. Maybe a bit more truthful as no-one really knows much about her.

    If this needs editing please do so. So as I don't get into trouble. :(

    For anyone interested in the tale of Margaret Catchpole have a read of this.

    Trove.....Windsor and Richmond Gazette (NSW:1888-1954)
    Saturday 31 October 1896, headed, 'Margaret Catchpole or Mary Reibey'
    The mystery deepens
    On early convict index her age at sentencing was 41, which would make her birth c1759.

    Thanks Wendy, but I'm still going to put it on my cemetery list for a Sunday stroll. Lots of interesting names in that article.
