The other convict

Flushed with the success of identifying convict John, attention turned to Ruth the other Tasmanian convict (1831).
Supposedly Scottish, she looks rather more likely to be the Ruth born Berwick upon Tweed to Richard and Jane (SANDERSON) RUNCHMAN.
Whether Richard is from Scotland, or belongs to the other Cornhill families may never be determined.
