The following newspaper reports MAY refer to this Mary Doran.

Mary Doran, for being regularly bowled out with a strapping young grenadier in her bed room, the door of which was locked, and gammoning to be soundly asleep, was sent to correct her morals by three months residence at Mrs. Gordon’s.
Sydney Herald, 25 Jun 1832.

Police Report
MONDAY.—Mary Doran, assigned to Mr. Armstrong, Surveyor, was placed at the bar, charged by her master with purloining a bottle, not of Cooper’s, but of real Sheridan’s gin, which was afterwards found on the milkwoman who supplied the family. It appeared to be the intention of Mary to visit the milkwoman on the following day, and regale themselves over the contents of the bottle, which however was frustrated by the said premature seizure. The Bench sent her for 6 months to the 3d class, with a recommendation that she be not assigned again in Sydney.
Mary Rice, the milkwoman aforesaid, on being sent for by Captain Rossi, appeared at the bar on the charge of receiving the bottle of gin, knowing it to be stolen.  It being clearly proved by a servant of Mr. Armstrong, that she had the bottle of gin in her possession, and had received it from the former prisoner; the Bench committed her for trial, and she departed vociferating vengeance against Mr. Armstrong. Mrs. Rice was afterwards admitted to bail.
Sydney Gazette, 12 Sep 1833.
