Convict Elizabeth Buffey

F, #37966, b. 1788, d. 27 September 1872
     Her married name was Bridge. Convict Elizabeth Buffey was born in 1788 at Lancashire, England. She was on 23 January 1805Tried in Lancaster on 23 Jan 1805 for stealing clothing.
Joseph, wife Elizabeth and son John appeared in Maitland Quarter Sessions on 25 May 1825 for receiving Stolen Goods. John was acquitted. Joseph and Elizabeth were sentenced to seven years on Norfolk Island. The five youngest children were sent to an Orphan School in Cabramatta. After a time in Gaol, Elizabeth was released. Joseph was sent to Norfolk on the Brig "Wellington" on 8 Dec 1826. Some of the prisioners mutinied and took control of the ship. They sailed to the Bay of Islands, New Zealand, arriving on 5 Jan 1827. Authorities seized the ship and the ship was returned to Sydney, arriving on 9 Feb 1827. The mutineers were sentenced to Death. Joseph, despite petitions from his sons, was sent to Moreton Bay Penal Colony (A harsher place than Norfolk) where he died in custody.

Trial of Elizabeth Buffey. Elizabeth Buffey was tried along with Elizabeth Brooks and Ann Webb, before the Salford Session of Lancashire Quarter Sessions. She was charged an the oath of Keron Burkill and Richard Cook, with stealing from Joseph Burkill's house in Hulme, one silk bonnet, two cloth caps and sundry items of wearing apparel, his property. The alleged offence took place on 29th October 1804 and M. Fletcher committed Elizabeth Buffey on 16th January 1805. Elizabeth's place of abode was described as "late of the parish of Manchester, single-woman". Elizabeth Buffey was sentenced to transportation for seven years on 23rd January 1805.5he sailed on the "Alexander"', which was built in Quebec in 1801 The master of the Alexander was one Richard Brooks, who previously brought out the Atlas in l802. Beause of the deplorable state of the prisoners and the neglect and inhumanity of the master, the voyage of the Atlas was one of the worst in the history of transportation. He used so much of the ship's space for his private trade goods that space for the convicts was deplorably lacking. 63 out of 179 convicts died during the passage and Governor King reported that the remainders were "in a dreadfully emaciated and dying state". As with other callous masters who had shamefully maltreated the prisoners entrusted to their care, Brooks escaped punishment. On the occasion of his arrival as master of the Alexander no complaint was made against him and he landed his prisoners in good health. Note:In the following year after Elizabeth's arrival in the colony the Colonial Secretary Castlereagh wrote to. Governor Bligh in the following terms:"You appear to be sensible of the importance of promoting the increase of marriages in the colony and undoubtedly the great proportion which appears to exist of illegitimate, in comparison with legitimate children, leads to the conclusion that a proper system for advancing this grand object has, not been adapted. From the circumstances of the colonists and the numbers that go out there leaving their wives or husbands in England and the disproportion between the sexes, it must be extremely difficult to, remedy the evil complained of; but I have understood that sufficient pains have not been taken with respect to the disposal of the female convicts on their first arrival in the Colony, and that they have been indented to improper persons in order to ease, as soon as possible, the expense of supporting them by Government rations. The impolicy of this system is so obvious that you will not persevere in it, but in every case, endeavour to make the reformation of the female convict and her regular settlement by marriage, a consideration superior to the saying, for any short period, the expense of maintaining her ( H.R.A. 1.6.202.) Further to notes on Elizabeth's Trial and Deportation. The sessions were held at the Liverpool Board, and the sentence cert. No. 2071. Also an the Alexander with Elizabeth were Solomin Wiseman, Jeremiah Hawkins, John and Edward Goodwin ( Norfolk Assizes 9.8. 1802, 7 years ).The Alexander sailed from England on 28.1.1806 and arrived on 20 August 1806.1t was registered in London and had a tonnage of 278 It was formally known as the Atlas and had 12 guns and 24 men with a cargo of convicts and 500 tons of oil and 20 tons fine salted skins. The daughter of the master married Thomas Valentine Bloomfield who had 2000 acres at Wallis Creek in 1821 ( this later became Dagworth Bloomfield Collieries. )NOTESThe reference, "H.R.A. Vol." in the foregoing article, relates to the"Historical Records of Australia" (Volume number and page number) which contain State papers including the Governors' dispatches to and from England. In regard to Elizabeth Buffey, she spent time in the Female Factory at Parramatta and is reported in the 1814 Muster as being "in the Factory" and "on the Government stores" for herself and 2 children. This meant that she was supplied food and clothing for herself and 2 children. It is interesting to speculate who were the two children and why only two are mentioned, as by that time she had three sons (James, John and Thomas) and possibly a fourth (Joseph born 20 July 1814). As Elizabeth was free at that time, she was there probably because of her condition with Joseph who may or may not have yet been born. The Female Factory at this time (1814) was at the different site from the one built in 1819 This meant that Elizabeth would have been an inmate of both buildings over time ? as she would no doubt have been there, in the gaol portion, during the 1825 trial.
The one in 1814 was located on the site of the present Prince Alfred Park at Parramatta which is bounded by Marist Place, Market Street, Church Street and Victoria Road. The other Factory is situated in Fleet Street, on the Parramatta River and eventually became a mental hospital. It is still standing and the buildings there have been famous for their huge wisteria display at springtime.
BUFFEY, Elizabeth or BRIDGES. Per "Alexander", 18061825 Jan 12-May 28Convicted of stealing from the person and putting in bodily fear and receiving.
