Punishment was initially death, commuted to transportation to Africa but was sent to Australia on the Lady Penrhyn with the First Fleet. There was a 2nd Mary Marshall on the ship - this Mary was the younger of them.
Mary was sent on to Norfolk Island 1790, said to have married Richard Phillimore Nov 1791, repatriated to VDL 26/12/1808 upon closure of the first settlement. Died suddenly the night of 17/03/1820, an inquest found death was due to the “visitation of God”. Article in newspaper covering her death.
