NOTES:
Catherine was arrested in London and transported to Maidstone in Kent, under guard, for trial at the cost of £25/14/6. A sympathetic jury valued the stolen bank notes at an artificially low level of 39 shillings, thereby saving her from a death sentence

August 1790 - Eight weeks after arriving at Sydney Cove Catherine was sent to Norfolk Island
20 October 1790 - Ordered to receive a flogging for telling a lie to a sentinel. She received 6 lashes. Lieutenant Ralph Clark, who ordered the flogging, recorded in his diary that she was "a good looking woman but a great thief"
