She married George Urquhart in Edinburgh 21 May 1818. 
She had several convictions for stealing, the last one being the theft of a shawl which she pawned for 6d.  She married a fellow convict, David Adams, in Hobart on 6 Aug 1850 although she was still married to George.  She received her freedom in 1854 and died in Hobart 13 Oct 1877.

Convict number 79328. At 5’ 1” she had 9 children with her Scottish husband George Urquhart. She was only transported after a succession of appearances and sentences for theft, mainly from her husband . She received her Ticket of Freedom on May 29, 1854 after having had her Ticket of Leave revoked in January 1854 for absconding.  Her grandson Thomas Urquhart moved to Australia and married Agnes Elliot.  They had three sons and three daughters (one of which was my grandmother). One son was lost in WWI at Passchendaele but a large group of Australian descendants now exist.
