Sisters Phoebe Hines born 1786, Mariah Hines born 1789, and Catherine Hines (Lattimore) born 1792 were three of seven children born to William and Dinah Hines in Birmingham, Warwickshire. The three sisters were convicted of larceny and transported between 1806, 1814 and 1817.
Mariah Hines’ first arrest in 1805 at the age of 16 years, brought her before the Warwick Summer Assize court charged with burglary, found not guilty, and acquitted.  On her second brush with the law in 1806, Mariah was not so lucky. Accused of stealing printed cotton from a household, at the Warwick Lent Assizes, Mariah was sentenced to transportation for seven years.  The only record of the 1805 and 1806 trials is that each has a one-line entry found in the Warwick Criminal Registers. 
I find no record of imprisonment but assume Mariah stayed in the local Warwick Gaol until it was time to join the convict ship ‘Sydney Cove’. 
The Sydney Cove sailed from Falmouth, England on 11th January 1807 and arrived at Port Jackson 18th June 1807.  She carried only 4 male convicts and 106 female convicts three of which died at sea. The prisoner’s average sentence was 8 Years; life sentences 14.  There is no ships log or surgeon’s journal for this ship.
On December 28, 1807, Mariah married convict John Haywood (1775-1853) in Parramatta.  It appears Mariah and John got on with their lives. The Musters for 1822 show John as a fisherman. The 1828 census lists John as 53yrs, shopkeeper; Mariah nee Hines 38yrs and two sons William 20yrs; John 18yrs. Also listed at same address is convict Edmund Woodfit 58yrs, shoemaker (life sentence) and servant James Richards 13yrs, son of convict Phoebe Hines, Mariah’s older sister. There does not seem to be any details about this family other than a record of Mariah death on 14 April 1845, in Parramatta, aged 55years.
