Burial record for parish of St Davids, Hobart. https://stors.tas.gov.au/RGD34-1-1p017j2k
Mary Evers, age 36,  died 18 May 1820, buried 19 May 1820, convict per Alexander.

These records puzzle me, as the death record states Mary as a convict per Alexander, died 1820, and her conduct record lists incidents of drunkenness dated 1830.
