    Hi Doreen and fonziepage,

    I've done some searching on Ancestry and think it possible you have two different Susan's. I found a marriage for Susan Conn to George McMah 1877, Sydney NSW.

    As yet I haven't seen a marriage for Susan Conn to Joseph Scutts though I have seen evidence that a Susan Conn and Joseph Scutts had children together (I'll do more searching)

    Susan married to George McMah was certainly an interesting lady, there is a criminal record for her for bigamy. In 1880 Susan McMah was sentenced to 12 months hard labour in Bathurst Gaol, Susan married a James Moore, George McMah her former husband being alive.

    Hi Almach
    I have ordered the death cert for Susan Florence Emma McMah, to see what is listed re marriages, children etc. this could take up to 2 weeks.

    The only child of George and Susan appears to be the first child Maud. Lilian Pearl married as SCUTTS. Have a look at the online indexes for the birth registrations of Susan's children under CONN as well. She is most likely named as Susan McMAH formerly CONN with no father named. Her daughter Susan (born 1887) named Joseph SCUTTS as her father when she married.

    Martha May born 1889 also named her father as Joseph SCUTTS.

    hi Dundee 10
    I have checked the online bdm for nsw. there is no registered birth under scutts for Susan b1887 and Martha May b1899.
    however, Joseph Scutts had children to his wife Margaret. they are:
    Joseph b1897, Walter b1898, John b1900, George b.1899, Annie b.1903 and Wilfre3d b.1905. If this is the same Joseph, then he was still married to Margaret whilst living with Susan. will keep looking.

    I have gone back to your original post and then looked at British criminal records to see if I could find more about Edward Con /Conn, as some prison hulk records can contain information about relatives. Unfortunately that isn't the case in this instance.

    Edward was sent to the prison hulk Fortitude at Chatham, and the only their records show, and those of Newgate prison, which was next door to the Old Bailey, and where he was held after his arrest in September, is that he was 19 years old, and charged with "Larceny from the person". He stole a watch, chain and s seal and £2.
