At the Courthouse

It looks like I come from “bad stock”! Or maybe I should just say I have a few convict forebears, like my 4 x great grandmother Elizabeth Brown/Browning Owen who was transported from England and imprisoned in the Female Factory in 1820. I knew I had a few of the convict class lurking in the background of my family tree and it wasn’t until I thought about this week’s prompt of “At the Courthouse” that here was the nudge I needed to write about Elizabeth.  Click HERE to go to her story.  For those who are interested I am related through my father, Charles Godfrey Biggs:
