Collins, Sarah (1759–1836)

Sarah Miles was sentenced to life transportation for assault and highway robbery. She arrived in Sydney in 1790 aboard the Lady Juliana as part of the Second Fleet. In 1790 she married Thomas Collins. By 1801 she was living with Thomas Hyams. In 1806 and 1814 she was listed as single, childless and self-employed. There is no record of her in the 1822 Muster or 1828 Census. A Sarah Mills died in the Benevolent Asylum on 15 October 1836 aged 77. It is not firmly established that this is the right person.
