Before her time was up, on 16/12/1833, Mary married another convict Charles Davison (6/6/1802 -17/3/1872) and had two children Eliza (22/1/1835) and Fanny (22/9/1836 New Norfolk VDL).
Government report bad. Nov 20 1837 Found with a man in her house on Saturday night at half past eleven. Given she was married with two children at this date the charge is intriguing.
