Norfolk Island have recorded Marys birth year as 1778 not 1773. If this is the case their record of Mary as a 10 year old child convict would be correct.
She married convict Edwin Kimberley in NSW on 20 October 1791.
They were transported to Norfolk Island on the ‘Atlantic’, arriving on November 1791.
Together they had four children born on Norfolk Island. They owned land, houses, livestock and grain.
Seventeen years later, they and other habitants were encouraged by the Government to leave Norfolk Island for the new settlement at the Derwent ‘Tasmania’.
Edwin and others had to petition the government for compensation for what they had left behind on Norfolk Island. Governor Macquarie reimbursed them with cash and cattle.
Mary and Edward settled in Tasmania. Mary died at Clarence Plains ‘Rokeby’ 1851
