Her crime would normally have warranted a public flogging but she was sentenced to transportation for calling a "perjured witness to give evidence". The putative father of Henrietta was Thomas SCRIVEN, however, it is possible that her father was actually Thomas GILBERT, the master of the 'Lady Penrhyn'. Reasons for this supposition can be found in Mollie GILLEN's book 'The Founders of Australia: A Biographical Dictionary of the First Fleet'
4 March 1790 - Sent to Norfolk Island, with Henrietta, on the 'Sirius'
1794 - Left Norfolk Island, with husband and family, on the "Daedalus', bound for Port Jackson
