Judy Jerkins on 5th March, 2014 wrote:

Mary Ann Browning, was a 19 yr old needlewoman when convicted. She married Charles Dix in Tasmania before producing a son Charles Dix.

In 1837 she travelled as the wife of John Thomas Haynes on the Lady Emma to South Australia.

She went on to raise her son in the new colony where she became a Publican in her own right.  She owned the Commerical Inn which burnt down, then the Halfway House on the Port Road.

She raised at least 1, possibly 2 children of William Jerkins, another VDL convict, after his wife, Eliza Courtoy, died 1851.

Mary Ann married Edward Grey and for years fought off legal claims from relatives of JT Haynes.

From my research Mary Ann Browning appears to have been a very good friend to many and a stoic and resilient businesswoman.
