Jane was about 16 years old when she was convicted of stealing a 16-yard length of flowered cotton valued at 34 shillings from a draper’s shop in Tavistock Street, Covent Garden.

Jane Mulloy was tried at the Old Bailey on 9 September 1789 by Mr Justice Heath. A Middlesex jury was told that, on 26 August, Jane had come into the shop with two other women, asking to look at prints for a gown and coat. The women fussed and bargained and – shortly after the shopkeeper had been distracted by a dirty looking man handling silk in the window – left without buying anything. Another customer drew the shopkeeper’s attention to the way Jane was walking, as if she had something bulky under her petticoats…

Jane was transported on the second fleet on the Neptunne. The Neptune arrived in Port Jackon on 28 June 1790. The Neptune had the highest death rate of 31 per cent. The women on the Neptune were probably treated better than the men, for ‘only’ one in seven of the women died en route. Jane probably remained relatively healthy on the voyage for, five weeks after landing at Sydney Cove, she was among 194 mostly female convicts sent to Norfolk Island.
