Nathaniel Lucas (1764–1818) & Olivia Gascoigne (1763–1830)
Nathaniel Lucas (per Scarborough) and Olivia Gascoigne (per Lady Penrhyn) were First Fleet convicts.
Nathaniel, a carpenter, was transported for Stealing Clothing with a Value of 40 Shillings. Olivia, convicted of Stealing by the Force of Arms (an armed holdup), was sentenced to hang, but this was commuted to transportation.
Just weeks after landing at Port Jackson, Governor Arthur Phillip ordered that a small party of convicts and free men also take control of Norfolk Island. Olivia and Nathaniel were selected, for their good character and useful skills.
They met on the voyage to Norfolk Island, on HMS Supply. Their first born, Ann was born twelve months later.
