Jackson, Hannah (c. 1757–?)

Hannah Jackson (c.1757- ) was found guilty on 28 July 1785 at Bristol of stealing three yards of lawn. Sentenced to 7 years transportation she was sent to the Dunkirk hulk on 10 December 1785, where she remained until she embarked for New South Wales on the Charlotte in March 1787, arriving in Sydney in January 1788 as part of the First Fleet.

Jackson was sent to Norfolk Island on the Sirius in March 1790, returning to Port Jackson on the Chesterfield in March 1793. She appears in later musters as the 'wife' of Joseph Dunnage. They were still together in 1828, living at Richmond. Both gave their age as 70 in the 1828 Census. No further records have been found for the couple.
