So much of the actual records of female convicts is
unpleasant and detrimental both to those in authority and to
the women themselves, that it is necessary to remember that
there must have been many whose deeds were unrecorded for the
simple reason that they came to tho colony, became satisfactory
domestic servants or satisfactory wives and mothers,and
as such do not figure prominently in records. By these as
well as by the settler's' wives~ homes were established and
young colonists brought up. Nevertheless, the records of female
convicts do not make pleasant reading.
