Tasmanian Whitbourne Connections

I am descended from John Dunn Whitbourn b c 1800 who arrived in Tasmania with his 1st wife Susan Charter in 1842. He remarried Elizabeth Cross (b c 1824) shortly after. Elizabeth Cross was a convict and I have her details.
In our family John Dunn Whitbourn was reputed to have had
25 children - I think I've found about 20!!
I have quite a bit of info about the Whitbourns in Tasmania
and Victoria , Australia but am at a bit of a loss before
John Dunn Whitbourn and Susan Charter chr. some of their
children in Cambridge. Any thoughts?

Along the way I came across a convict Elizabeth Whitbourn
- but she does not appear to be connected to me at this
stage. Here are her details;
Elizabeth Whitburn was tried at the Old Bailey 10th Jun
1844 (aged 19). Her crime was larceny in a dwelling house
at Lambeth (I have more detail) and she was transported
to Tasmania, Australia for 10 yrs aboard the ship 'Tasmania(1)'. Her place of abode was given as New Norfolk. She married Job Hodges at age 23, 16th AUG 1847.
