Mary would appear to have had two common law relationships, soon after arriving in the colony.
She did however eventually marry, one John Maskey (Convict, Duke of Portland, 1807).  They married 28 August 1826 at Castelreagh.  They had 5 children.

Mary was the concubine of former convict Ferdinard Meaurant - who had been pardoned by Governor King due Ferdinard’s skills as a silversmith.  Mary had 2 children with him - a boy and a girl.  Mary left Ferdinard’s employ once her term was served, leaving behind her son but taking her daughter, Elvira.  Elvira would die from burns suffered after falling into a fire at Ferdinard’s property on the Hawkesbury. Mary’s son from this relationship stayed in contact with his mother and would later help his step-father, John Maskey, in seeking a land grant.
