Mary Ann Cain was tried for cutting and stabbing in August 1840 and sentenced to 3 years in prison (newspaper attachment, plus prison register) 

On 18th Oct 1847 she was tried for stealing from the person (a watch).

There is a document which I think is for some kind of clemency but was refused, it mentions Susan (sister Susannah??) Cain of Duncan Street, Liverpool, I found Susan in the 1841 census with a sister Jane both at Duncan Street.

I can find no other details except for the prison register for Ann Jones in 1847 where she is shown as 24 years of age, and of course all her records post transportation are on the Tasmanian Heritage Archives site.

Occupation: Hawker
