Alexander was a man who liked women, but I believe that if he was free he would have married Catherine O'Brien, Catherine O'Brien's Mother was Susanah Mortimer a convict
sent to Norfolk Island she was on the brothel ship in the 2nd Fleet and arrived 1790
& met up with Thomas O'Brien and married him he was a marine who was given a land grant
on the Island if he wanted to stay here. His grant was next to the Beresfords and when they left Norfolk they were given adjoining grants at New Norfolk. Susanah had a child
on board ship and was named after her mother Susanah & Thomas O'Brien gave her his name
and she married a convict George Porter and their daughter Maryanne became Alexander
defacto in about 1835 while she was looking after her aunt Catherine O'Brien

We have done the O'Brien history and the waddle history from 1812 till today, and we are still looking at other parts of the family, and the properties and his horse racing
and when he became a Skipper of his own ship and where he sailed and the Inns that he owned and why did he diverse himself of a lot of personal things about 1836 when his
1st child Sarah was born to Maryanne Porter. He also set up 2 Trusts for Sarah and James to protect them from the older siblings. Alexander became a very wealthy man for
a courtmartialled man and he has a very interesting life & fathered 13 kids to 3 women
