Lady Juliana (aka the Lady Julian)
Lady Juliana (aka the Lady Julian)
Was a convict ship that dispatched in 1789 from Britain to Australia. She was the first convict ship to arrive at Port Jackson in New South Wales after the First Fleet.

She is therefore sometimes considered as part of the Second Fleet and sometimes not.

The ship was 401 tons and was chartered to transport female convicts.

Out of the Holliday Closet!
Out of the Holliday Closet!

Written by Virginia Stokes and updated April 2006


This information has been written for all those members of the Holliday - Porter clan who are interested in their forebears with apologies to those receiving this who are not. Evidence strongly points to the fact that there was not one but two skeletons lurking in the Holiday- Porter rectory closet. They have now both come out! Not only did Henry Thomas Holliday have a convict ancestor but also his wife Mary Porter!

Pirie Street Methodist Church
Pirie Street Methodist Church
The Pirie Street Methodist Church, located behind the Adelaide Town Hall, was the 'cathedral church' of Methodism in the city. Built in 1850, it could seat 800 downstairs, and an additional 400 in the galleries. In 1969 Pirie Street merged with nearby Stow Congregational Church, an early step in what was to become the Uniting Church. In 1972 the church was closed and demolished to make way for the Colonel Light Centre.

The Illegitimate Child
The Illegitimate Child
What is believed to have happened.

William's disappearance from the Law Lists for some years after 20 May 1803 suggests that he was either in gaol, overseas, or went off with his new daughter (and perhaps also her mother) to Hertfordshire to lay low for a while to avoid the scandal of his having an illegitimate child. The Law List was published only about 4 months after his daughter was born on 23 December 1803. So, the child would have been conceived some 9 months previously around 23 March 1803. William, then aged only about 23, might not have known the mother of Celia was "expecting" at the time he put his name down for the list published on 20 May. In other words, the "scandal" of his illegitimate child might not have hit the fan at this time.

After the passage of a few years and memories had faded somewhat, William returned to London about February 1807 with his daughter Celia from Hertfordshire and placed her in the foster care of Samuel WEBB and his wife Celia. The last mentioned two people were cited as the parents of the child, when she was baptized in London on 3 March 1807. She was then four years old. The child had been born in the town of Elstree or the village of Aldenham, Hertfordshire.

St Martin in the Fields, Westminster was where Celia Roubel KING, alias WEBB was baptised on 3 March 1807.

It is my hypothesis that Celia Roubel KING, alias WEBB, was in fact the natural child of a Miss KING and William ROUBEL and was raised by a foster parents named Samuel and Celia WEBB, who are mentioned at her 1807 baptismal ceremony. Alternatively, Celia WEBB, nee KING, could have been the natural mother of the child and had subsequently married Samuel WEBB prior to the christening. The 1871 census records the birthplace of Celia Roubel SMALL as Elstree.

TRIAL OF JOHN SHORT - A CONVICT, 1828
TRIAL OF JOHN SHORT - A CONVICT, 1828

Second day, Friday 11 April - Second Middlesex Jury - Before Mr Sergeant Arabin.


809. JOHN SHORT was indicted for feloniously breaking and entering the dwelling-house of William Moores, on 12th of March, at Pinner, and stealing therein 1 watch, value 3/-; 2 shirts, value 4s; 8 shillings, 4 sovereigns, and two 5/- Bank notes, his property.


WILLIAM MOORES. I rent a little ground - my dwelling-house is in the parish of Pinner, in Middlesex. I have known the prisoner seven or eight years; he once lived servant with me, as a labourer, in my farm - he slept in my house and knew the premises well. On the 12th of March I went out at nine or ten o`clock in the morning, leaving my wife at home; I returned about eleven o`clock, or half-past, and found a pane of glass has been pushed in, which was secure when I went out; anybody by pushing it in could put their arm in and unbolt the door. I missed a watch from the head of the bed; it was worth 3/-; I missed two shirts, worth 4s; four sovereigns, and some silver from between two beds, where I kept them, and two 5/- notes; I had seen them safe the morning before; they were all covered up together. I told a constable of it and he found my watch and shirt.


FANNY GREENFIELD. My husband is a labourer, and lives at Pinner. On the 12th of March, about eleven o`clock, I saw the prisoner at Pinner, coming in a direction from Moore's house - he was coming across Mr Hill's field, and was waling quiet fast; he was about a quarter of a mile from Moores'; my landlady was with me: we made some observation about the prisoner, which he must have heard; I turned round and said, "Lord, there is Jack Short;" I knew him very well, but had not seen him about Pinner for a long while; he turned when he heard me speak, and walked briskly away.


WILLIAM CROSS. I am a constable of Aylesbury. I saw a paragraph in the New Hue and Cry on the 21st of March, stating this robbery, and that John Short was suspected. I went to the pawnbroker's to make inquiry, and found nothing; I went from there to where the prisoner had lodged for a few days that week - I had seen him near the house on the morning of that day myself, and several times in the course of that week, and while I was in the house, speaking to the landlady, the pawnbroker's boy fetched me; I went to the pawnbroker's and found the prisoner there, offering a watch in pawn: the shopman produced it in his presence, and said that he had come to pawn it; the prisoner said nothing to that - I said to him, "That is Mr Moores' watch"; he said, "No, it is not - it is my own"; I said, "Where did you get it?" he said he bought it in London; I asked him in what street; he said he did not know: I asked what number, and he did not know; I took him to my own house, stripped him, and on his person found this shirt, with the initials W.M. on it; I secured him.


WILLIAM MOORES. This is my watch, and this is my shirt; they are what I lost that day.


GUILTY - DEATH. Aged 26. Of stealing in the dwelling house, but not of breaking and entering.
