The records of the transported Samuel were as follows:
Another record suggested he may have been from the Bristol Area:
Samuel has now been identified from his family grave in the Wesleyan Cemetery of Windsor, NSW as the son of Joseph and Mary Ann (Lacon) Callaway bap.27.06.1801 Bristol UK.

Maitland Mercury Sat 4 Sep 1852 p. 2Fatal Accident. - On Friday evening last, at about half past five o′clock p.m., Mr Samuel Callaway, of this town, auctioneer, was passing up the Punt–hill on horseback, when the animal he was riding shied and caused him to drop his reign, and, in endeavouring to keep his seat, to stick his spurs into her sides: this caused her to bunk–jump, and in doing so to throw the unfortunate gentleman heavily upon his head, he was picked up insensible, and conveyed to Mr. T. Fisher′s Royal Oak Inn, where he expired at about ten the same evening. An inquest was held on the body on Saturday, and a verdict returned that the deceased met his death by a fall from a horse – Herald Windsor Correspondent.
