John Rickards and Sarah Slade

One of the most interesting families I came across in my family history research was the Rickards. John Rickards was the uncle of my great-great grandmother’s second husband, Robert Hector Paulovich (so you can see I’ve drawn a long bow in the family relationship area). John came from a respectable family but ended up being sent to Australia as a convict where, once pardoned, he amassed a fortune and then returned to England while his son remained in Australia.
