Biography

Heather Stevens is a member of the Australia Project.
Heather Stevens is a member of the Australian Convicts Team.

I like the collaborative nature of Wikitree and have enjoyed adding my family trees, searching for resources, and building biographies.

I always try as much as possible to use primary sources. For example, pre-1856 NSW births, deaths and marriages can be looked at easily and quickly in public libraries - it's a shame that many researchers do not do this.

One of my current projects is the profile of the bushranger Jack Donohoe (abt.1806-1830). My interest in him stems from my ancestors Mary O'Hara and her grandmother Mary O'Brien who were transported to Moreton Bay thanks to him!

I am also working on the biography of Francis MacNamara (abt.1811-1861), who was known as "Frank the Poet".

I have contributed to the profiles of Charlotte Badger, the so-called "woman pirate", and Billy Blue known as the "Old Commodore", a "well-known character about Sydney".

I would like to work on First Fleet profiles when I get the time! I also take photos for findagrave and Monument Australia. Other profiles:

Hi Heather

Thanks for updating Elizabeth's profile (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Wicks-1591) and I added in her maiden name "Wicks".

Hi Heather,

I have recently joined Wikitree in search of family history. I am now interested in 3rd fleet arrivals and the Morgan family of Denbigh / Cobbitty. I would like to connect with you and learn more about the family. In particular the Ann (nee Collins) Morgan and her daughter Sarah Cantrill - Meyers who travelled to Ipswich. The living conditions and how they travelled such distances is intriguing. I want to make the connection between their resillience and life in harsh conditions. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Julie

Hi Heather. I’m interested in Thomas Hammond, born 1792 in Gawsworth, Cheshire, England, who worked in a solicitors in 1820 and was transported to Australia. I have heard he was parolled after two years, bought some land in Botany and one of his descendants still lives there. I descended from his mother’s oldest brother, George Wardle 1738, so anything found would be great!
