Henry James Hussey (1842–1842)

HENRY JAMES HUSSEY was a convict’s child who lived at the Parramatta Female Factory. He was the child of convict HARRIET HUSSEY and an unnamed father. It seems that when HENRY JAMES HUSSEY died at the Factory soon after his baptism at St. John’s, his own name was not recorded; his mother’s name was recorded instead.
