Mary’s husband followed her with 2 sons Edward and William they arrived the same day on the “Fanny”. Edward set up business in Sydney town as a Brassfounder. They had 2 more sons John George and Robert in Sydney then left for Van Diemans Land in 1821 and lived in the Battery Point area. They had one more child a daughter Matilda in Hobart. This is the short version of her story, Mary died in 1842 in Hobart her burial place is unknown. Once in Tasmania Mary changed her name to Sarah, possibly to hide the fact she was a convict. Her birth place was listed as Beverley but at this stage not found neither her marriage to Edward as we aren’t sure of her maiden name.
