Mary was not a model convict, she was sent to the Female Factory for extreme insolence, being found in bed with her masters male assigned servant, refusing to do her work where she received confinement and fed bread and water for 7 days. Mary was also found guilty of theft of a napkin and other articles from her master and received another 7 years in 1827 however this must have been commuted as she was given permission to marry Robert Flegg in May 1832. Two children were born to Mary prior to marriage Robert Farley born 25 May 1828 d. 28 May 1829 at the Female Factory and Caroline Fairley (Farley) (Flegg) born 18 Apr 1829. (My gg grandmother)
