Jane Saunders (n.d.–1837)

JANE SAUNDERS was a convict woman who died at the Parramatta Female Factory. The burial register records her ship as Brothers, however there are no convicts with that name who arrived by that ship. It is possible that she was, therefore, transported under an alias, or that she married in the colony. Further research required.
