    Australian Convict Muster - 1825 (Extract)
    Australian Convict Muster - 1825 (Extract)
    On this muster appear Anthony Hordern and his family. Although difficult to read, the colume headings appear to be: Name; Age; Class; Vessel; Yr of Arrival; Sentence; Employment. In the case of Anthony, it would appear that he arrived in 1825 aboard the 'Phoenix', that his sentence was 7 years and his employment was 'Coach Maker'. This agrees with the biographical account in the Australian Dictionary of Biographies (see 'Owner/Source', below)

    Also on this document are sons, Anthony and John, daughter Elizabeth and wife Ann (nee Woodhead).

    Notes 
    • The Horderns were a banking family from Uttoxeter, Staffordshire. The story goes that they disapproved of their son Anthony's marriage, and so he immigrated to Australia aboard the ship 'Phoenix', arriving in Sydney in March 1825. Anthony set up as a 'coachmaker, wheelwright and smith' and later as a grocer and publican. His wife opened a shop as a haberdasher and bonnet and corsetmaker at the front of her house in King Street. Anthony's coach building business was at the rear.

      Ann's success provoked a rumour that Hordern was her assigned convict. This "rumour" could well be founded in fact as this Convict Muster seems to indicate.
