From on Thursday, 22 January, 2009

Hello Elizabeth
I see you linked 4 facts relating to 'F Perry'. As the gg granddaughter of Alice Ann Perry I am sorry to say that none of the facts is connected to the others.
Francis Perry (father of Alice) arrived from Dublin via Sydney aboard a convict transport ship named the Westmorland in 1838.
While Grace Bowden and Francis did indeed baptise Alice in 1841, by 1845 Grace Bowden was married to another man - she and Francis never married and only had the one illegitimate child.
Kindest regards, Jenny
