In October 2019 there is the Family muster of descendants of First Fleet convicts Andrew Goodwin (Scarborough) and Lydia Munro (Prince of Wales).  Andrew and Lydia were married 2 March 1790 at St Phillips Sydney, two days later they travel to Norfolk Island with infant daughter Mary, aboard HMS Sirius. Andrew eventually became a settler on Norfolk Island. In November 1794 Lydia left Norfolk Island for Port Jackson with her baby son John born c1794 Norfolk Island aboard the Daedalus. Andrew followed her in March 1795 with their two daughters Mary born 1789 Port Jackson and Sarah born December 1790 Norfolk Island, aboard the Fancy. Andrew returned to Norfolk island in July aboard the Fancy whilst Sarah and three children returned to Norfolk Island in October 1795 aboard HMAT Supply. Hence the Goodwin Munro Muster being held in October.  The Goodwin family left Norfolk Island for VDL in December 1807 aboard HMS Porpoise, with seven of their children.
