Sampson, Sarah (1764–1813)

Sarah Taylor was sentenced to seven years transportation at the Old Bailey Sessions for the theft of a looking glass in a mahogany frame, worth 20 shillings, from a shop. She arrived in Sydney in June 1790 aboard the Lady Juliana. On 20 July 1790 she married Peter Sampson. There are no records of her husband after 1791; it is not known if he died or left the colony. By 1801 Sarah was living at Sydney with Gilbert Baker. She was still with him in 1806; she had no children.
