Born possibly at Clifton, Gloucestershire, England in 1803. She had a brother John HERRING who arrived in Hobart Town on the convict transport Medway in 1825.
Honor was convicted for stealing in London and arrived in Hobart Town on Sovereign in 1827 with her three small daughters. Her husband James BALDWIN signed on the ship as a seaman and accompanied them. He obtained a position as a gaol keeper in Bothwell and she was assigned to him.
She died at her daughter's home Selma in 1859.
A descendant has pointed out that fraternal twins have been passed down the female line in this family. At this time, Honor is the earliest female we have found on this line.
