Sarah Colwell (1840–c.1842)

Convict’s child who was born and died at the Parramatta Female Factory. SARAH was one of a set of twin girls born to convict ANN COLWELL and an unnamed father. The twins’ mother died soon after giving birth and was buried in the parish of St. John’s on 5 September 1840. One of the twin girls also died age 2 weeks old, and the other died aged 2 years old. It is not clear which daughter died first, as both girls were incorrectly recorded as “MARY ANN COLWELL” on the St. John’s parish burial records.
