Mary Atkinson, was seen to be carrying something under her cloak as she left a Leicester Square drapery shop, on 8 January 1787. When challenged she produced 4 yards of printed cotton which however, did not belong to the shop. When enquiries were made about where the material had come from, she ran off but was later apprehended.
Tried at the Old Bailey, she was found guilty os stealing the cloth and sentenced to death.
On 23 May 1787 she was reprieved to transportation for 7 years.
In the colony, she used the surname Goulding.

On 19 December 1790 she married the First Fleet convict William Hubbard.  They moved to a land grant at Hawkesbury and by 1806 had 4 children.
Between 1816 and 1820 the family moved to Sydney and William became a constable.
Mary died in 1820.
