Jane Brown was tried for larceny at London on 26 May 1819 and was sentenced to transportation for life.  She was aged 27 at the time of her trial and had been in Newgate prison previously (PRO reel 2837).

She was transported to Van Dieman’s Land per the Morley, which departed London on 22 May 1820 and arrived in Van Diemans Land on 29 August 1820. 

The October and November 1823 muster for female convicts in Van Dieman’s Land lists Jane Brown as a servant to Major Bale.

She married Daniel Fitzpatrick at St David’s Church of England in Hobart Town on 17 November 1823 when she was 30 years old and still a convict.

She gave birth to three daughters Rosina, Eliza and Louise. 

She received a conditional pardon on 8 June 1830 (CON 40/1).

Jane died 4 May 1855, aged 62 years, widow.  The information was provided by Robert A Newman, friend, Elphinstone Street, Hobart.  (RGD 1916/1855)
