Susannah RIVERS

Susannah was born around 1779 and it has been suggested that her parentage related to the PITT family. She married John VINCENT in about 1803 and their first child was born at Gloucester in 1804. They emigrated with 8 children to Hobart Town in 1823 as free settlers with £869 in assets.
The Rivers name has been passed down through the descendants, including my grandfather Charles Frederick Rivers CAWTHORN, but no fortune or title accompanied it. Perhaps her share was a passage to the other side of the world with her family?
She had nine children, the youngest one being born in Tasmania.
She died at Green Ponds in 1860.
