Mary was tried at Dublin, 1792, with stealing a coat. She was found guilty and sentenced to transportation for 7 years. This was because of her previous poor history before the courts.

Mary may have been the Mary Ann Dunbar who married John Hacket, Feruary 17th 1796 and had a daughter Ann born 1794.
However, there is no record of Mary with Hacket.
In the various Musters….
1802: [AE118] Mary Dunbar, Sugar Cane, TL113.
1806: [A1315] Mary Dunbar, Sugar cane, FBs, with Hugh Docherty.
1811: [1755] Mary Dunbar, Sugar Cane, Tried Dublin 1793, 7 years.
1814: [1397] Mary Dunbar, Sugar Cane, wife to J Dogherty?

It would seem that Mary lived with Hugh Dogherty (Convict, Queen, 1791) for a long period, from at least C1805 to 1828.

My mother and me have been researching Mary Ann Dundar we suspect their was two Mary Ann Dundars one born 1771-1862 and married John Hackett and had a daughter Ann who married Joshua Rose 1783-31-1-1862. They are all buried in the same grave in St Stephens church cemetery Camperdown . We are unable to find any information on John Hackett or any real information on Mary Ann Dundar.  I would like also to point out the surname Hackett and Dundar are Scottish not Irish although could be Ulster Scot.  Any help from anyone for info on John Hackett or Mary Anne Dundar would be very much appreciated.
