David Keswick

According to his daughter's death certificate in 1856, Frances Keswick's father David was Captain RA. She was born in Whitehaven, Cumberland in 1792 and her mother's name was Mary.
As she had come to Australia in 1828 as the wife of a convict, and on a female convict transport, it is possible that her father's occupation may have been an invention to cover the true story. We look forward to perhaps finding more about him some day.
