Heatley, Caroline (1766–1830)

Caroline Laycock was sentenced to seven years transportation for felony. She arrived in Sydney in 1788 aboard the Prince of Wales as part of the First Fleet. She had a child with Robert Hosburn, a seaman aboard the Prince of Wales. Hosburn returned to England on the ship. Caroline then lived with Robert Bruce, who, it is thought, returned to England in 1791 following the expiration of his sentence. She then had five children with Mark Turner before his death in 1802. In 1803 she had a daughter with William Smith and in 1810 married Henry Heatley.
