Sometime after William’s death in 1811 Judith’s children were placed in the care of the Orphan School in Parramatta and when the 1814 Muster was conducted, Judith was living with a former soldier, Richard FRYER (Frier) [102nd Regiment], who had arrived on the Salamander in 1791. Richard spent some time on Norfolk Island and had owned land there but by 1814 he was a landholder in the Parramatta district. Richard had arrived as part of the Third Fleet, on the Salamander 21 Aug 1791; he is believed to have been born in London, circa 1754/1760.

It seems Judith died on 26 August 1855 and was also buried in St Paul’s churchyard Cobbitty on 27 Aug. The register entry is actually for an Elizabeth Fryer, with a stated age of 95 years; which is clearly overstated; Judith would have only been about 80-81 years old
