Sarah King (1799–1839)

SARAH KING was an English convict who was tried and convicted at the Old Bailey, London on 20 August 1838 for knowingly receiving stolen goods and sentenced to seven years transportation per Planter (2) (1839). As this ship arrived in the colony on 9 March 1839, it seems most likely that this SARAH was the SARAH KING who died at the Parramatta Female Factory and was buried in the parish of St. John’s, Parramatta less than two months later on 2 July 1839.
