Mary arrived in 1801 and very soon thereafter formed a relationship with John Richardson Mann (First Fleet Convict, Scarborough, 1788).
John had a young family, his recent partner Mary Finn (First Fleet Convict, Lady Penryhn, 1788) having died in 1793.
## These two women are often mixed up in research entries, especially with regard the mother of the children!
John and Mary (Quin) had three children John Richardson 1802, Elizabeth Richardson 1804 and James Richardson 1806.

Sometime before 1806, Mary had an accident, when a large beam fell across her and she became an partial cripple.

Mary’s disability and strength of character are best highlighted in the Inquest notes on John Richardson: as published
Sydney Gazette Sun 21 Jan 1810 p.2
On Wednesday a Coroner’s Inquest sat on the body of John Richardson, who died suddenly at a little tenement in Pitt’s Row. - Verdict, Death by the visitation of God. - The deceased was a well known character who for many years had struggled for the substance of a family by hawking fruits and cakes about the streets, on which recounted he was better known by the name of “Muffins” than his real name. We are thus particular in a description of the deceased, because while living he was universally known to be exceedingly indigent, having four infant children, the mother of whom was crippled eight years ago by a beam falling on her in the lumber yard, and has ever since walked on crutches. Trifling as might have been the earnings of this poor son of misfortune, yet they were all that Providence had bequeathed to those dependent on him, and now deprived of even that dependence, what must be the distress to which they are thus unhappily and unexpectedly reduced!
