    • The widowed Madame Rens and her daughter, Jeanette, departed the Dutch colony of Batavia on the ship "Phillip Dundas" on 30 November 1826, arriving in Sydney on 30 January 1827. She had planned ahead for her survival in the colony, bringing with her enough capital to set up business and purchase property.

      In the 1828 census, she was listed as "Coymanos Vidonia Rens" and described herself as a milliner.
      In her application for naturalisation in 1831, she stated that she had brought with her property amounting to 6000 Pounds Sterling, and it is known that by 10 June 1827 she had bought an allotment on the corner of George and what is now Bridge Street, Sydney.

      On 16 April 1833, Madame Rens and her daughter set sail for London on the ship "Edward Lombe". They returned in 1835 accompanied by her son, Edward, travelling from England on the barque "Enchantress'' from London for Hobart Town and Sydney. The ship hit rocks and sank off the south-west coast of Bruny Island in the D'Entrecasteaux Channel , Tasmania on Friday, 17 July 1835.
      Sixteen of the crew and one steerage passenger were lost. Madame, Mr and Miss Rens were listed among the passengers saved. They arrived back in Sydney on the ship "Medway" in September 1835.
