This group is for descendants and related families of William BAKER, his wife Sarah DRAPER, his long time partner Mary RAYCROFT (also known as RAYCRAFT) and other associated early convict and settler families.
William Baker arrived on the "Neptune" with the 2nd Fleet of convicts to New South Wales. Many atrocious horrors were associated with the 'hell-ship' "Neptune's" 1790 voyage to the antipodes.
2010 marked the 220th anniversary of William Baker's arrival in Australia and on 26th June we held our Inaugural Family Reunion at St Matthews Church of England, Windsor, NSW. It was an amazing day with over 300 descendants in attendance. A great time was had by all. Many family members were able to meet for the first time, and others caught up after many years apart. It is hoped this will be a regular event to be held about every 5 years. So keep your calendars free for 2015. Venue to be determined.
