I have Mary Grace or Grayson, similar details but different husband. Born 1821 Dublin, similar 1822.
Married George cook (also convict) 26/6/1843. Was kitchen maid, sentenced 7yrs stealing boots when 17yo. Free when married, reportedly got 7 yrs but numbers look reduced sentence if free from time of marriage vs sentence.
