Martha was sent to Moreton Bay following a Colonial sentence.

Moreton Bay Convict Record.
Martha Clarke, late Hubbard, Harmony, Lincoln Q.S. 24 Oct 1826, stealing clothes, & years, trade- needlewoman. Colonial sentence: Gen Sess. Sydney, 3 Jan 1831,stealing in a dwelling house under the value of £5. sentence- 18 months and returned to her husband. To Sydney, 4 July 1832.

Martha Clarke, was charged by Mr. Birch, with stealing some plates, wine glasses, and other articles, his property. The prisoner is assigned to her husband, and was employed by Mr. B. to occupy and take care of a house belonging to him in Clarence-street. He went to the premises on Saturday, when she manifested great disinclination to let him enter the loft ; this naturally excited his suspicion, and he accordingly insisted on searching it, where he found the things above alluded to secreted; on which he sent for a constable and gave her into custody.  She had also been guilty of using threatening language, and endeavouring to extort money by a false accusation.  The Bench found her guilty, and sentenced her for eighteen months to such penal settlement as His Excellency the Governor may direct. 
Sydney Gazette, 6 Jan 1831.
