    Notes 
    • Francis Williams was a merchant who arrived at Port Jackson in the privateer Lucy in April 1806. He had left England as supercargo of a ship trading with South America which had been lost. He appears to have joined the Lucy on a journey through South American waters attacking Spanish shipping and across the Pacific to Port Jackson for repairs.

      The partnership finally soured and Williams was eventually tried for theft and embezzlement.Sentenced to transportation for fourteen years, Williams appears to have passed his servitude first as a clerk in the government store and later as clerk to the bench at the Newcastle penal settlement. He was granted a ticket-of-leave in 1828 and set up as an agent at Newcastle. He died at Luskentyre, one of Thomas Winder's estates, on 6 October 1831. Ref :Australian Dictionary of Biography.
