The following account of Mary Dean’s crime appeared in the Irish newspapers:

Freemans Journal, Thursday, 9 April 1801 p2
“Waterford, April 3
“Yesterday, the judges left town for Clonmel. Thursday, in the County court, the following persons received sentence:
“James Flaherty and John Flaherty [see entry for transportation of James ‘Flagherty’ on Hercules’ arr. 1802]
William Gorman and James Walsh [see entry for transportation on ‘Atlas’ 1, arr 1802]

“Thomas McMahon, Eleanor Nevill, Mary Fitzgerald, Eleanore Fitzgerald, Mary Dean, and Winifred Toohy – to be transported for seven years for stealing muslin and another similar articles at the fair of Cappoquin.  McMahon was a pensioner, having lost a leg in his Majesty’s service, Eleanor Nevill is his wife and was indicted and tried under her maiden name but this circumstance was not known till after sentence was passed, otherwise, we believe, she would be considered by the law to be an unwilling offender, she being supposed to have acted under the influence of her husband.”

Thomas McMahon and his wife did not arrive in NSW and neither did Winifred Toohy. Mary Fitzgerald arrived as Mary ‘Fitzpatrick’ on Atlas 1 together with Eleanor Fitzgerald.

Since all were working together in a little gang at the Cappoquin Fair it’s possible they were somehow related as gangs where women were involved were often family members.
