The real parents of Sarah Ann Francis Hill (born in Tasmania Australia)

I would like some assistance in working out who the real parents of Sarah Ann Francis Hill are, as I have two options! My Sarah Ann Francis Hill married Robert James Jones Aug 23 1858 at The Mance of St John's, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.

Option 1. Parents are Father: Thomas HILL and Mother: Louisa THOMPSON I have not been able to find any further information about this option.

Option 2. Parents are Father: Solomon HILL and Mother: Sarah Griffiths.
Sarah Griffiths is a convict transported to Tasmania in 1838 on the Nautalis at the age of about 32 (for 14 years). In 1842 she supposedly married Solomon Hill, although I can find no record of this in the convict requests to marry. I was able to find two previous requests to marry by Sarah Griffiths to a fellow convict (James Shorten transported on the Waterloo) in 1939 and 1840. In this scenario Sarah Griffiths dies in childbirth on 17 September 1843. This would make Sarah Ann Francis Hill 14 years old when she married Robert Jones.

Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.
