It is quite difficult to ascertain the exact identity of Elizabeth.
Elizabeth HANLEY is recorded as having arrived as a convict aboard the ship “Archduke Charles” and her daughter Margaret is stated to have been born at sea on the voyage to Australia. No record of her immigration has been found however. She seems to not appear in the 1814 Muster.
It may well be that she was married prior to her trial and used another name.

In the colony, Elizabeth married Peter Finnamore (Convict, 1811, “Providence”).
They married in 1828 at Sydney.
Name: Peter Finamore
Spouse Name: Elizabeth Hanly
Marriage Date: 1828
Marriage Place: New South Wales
Registration Place: Sydney, New South Wales
Registration Year: 1828
Volume Number: V
However, they had been in a defacto relationship for a long period and already had 5 or 6 children when they married.

In the 1825 Muster, we find the family, living at Campbelltown, clearly with the parents unmarried.

# Note Margaret, the eldest child was not actually a child of Peter. She was born aboard ship when her mother was transported - father unknown - She sometimes went by the name Hanley and sometimes Finnamore.

In the 1828 Census, several of the older children seem to be elsewhere and there are indeed 2 more young family members.
