From “The Second Fleet: Britain’s Grim Convict Armada of 1790” by Michael Flynn p340

‘Eight weeks after landing at Sydney Cove Hopper was among 194 mostly female convicts sent to Norfolk Island, arriving 7 August 1790. Her daughter was born on the island early in the 1790s, recorded in victualling records as Martha; this child may be identified as Maria Hopper, listed on the island as a child aged more than 10 years in 1802 and 1805. The child’s mother was certainly the second fleeter. She (Elizabeth) was recorded on the island in 1796 but had left or (more likely) died over the next four years for which no records survive. She has not been traced in later colonial records.

Notes: Hopper is believed to have lived with William Hazelwood (William and Ann 1791, tried Kent) who left the island for Hobart in September 1808 with no wife and one unnamed child who was almost certainly Maria.’
