The bride signed with her mark. Assigned to her husband, Joseph Biggs, on 20/4/1823. In 1836 lived at a lodging house at 17 Phillip St, Sydney. Death notice in SMH Monday 29 October 1855 says "after a long and painful illness". I can't find a marriage for Esther and Spencer. Tried FamilySearch for every Esther and every Spencer in England, 1792-1794. Maybe she was lying at her trial about being married? Might've thought it made her sound more respectable and possibly get a more lenient sentence?
