Convict Queen

· Belgrave House

About this ebook

Few convicts returned to England but Molly Morgan was one who did and became the Queen of Hunter Valley.

She lived in a Shropshire village, first as a maid to a wealthy farmer then with her husband William, who was somewhat light-fingered. After being convicted of theft, she went with the Second Fleet and survived being on the Neptune, the worst ever ship to carry convicts to New South Wales.

After a few years she persuaded an American Whaling ship captain to hide her and take her back to England, where she lived in London and was accused of more theft and again transported.

After a while, she began farming in the Hunter Valley where her luck finally changed.
