I have today added some updates to the Australia and New Zealand records.

An additional 33 individuals have been added to the Australia database and 2 individuals to the New Zealand database.

I found a marriage register page with one of the Lefever entries on it. It contained a total of 8 marriages and in four of the marriages one of the individuals was recorded as a convict. This was not unusual given the dates of the marriages but what I was surprised to find was that of the four convicts three of them were women, I hadn’t realised that quite so  many female convicts had been transported.
