Note: The Web Site - Descendants of William Vidler and Pam Hewitt has Harriet's DOB as 18 Apr 1819. This is before the date given for the marriage of her parents. Also Harriet was listed as being 17 years of age at the time of her arrival in Australia. This would calculate as she being born about 1821.
