Mary Ann Tomlinson

Convict woman incarcerated at the Parramatta Female Factory. Mother of THOMAS TOMLINSON.

MARY’s name was recorded in THOMAS’s baptism record as “MARY TOMBLESON,” so it seems most likely that this woman was MARY ANN TOMLINSON who was tried, convicted, and transported for seven years per Mary Anne III (1) (1839) alongside what appears to be a female relative (perhaps her elder sister) CATHERINE TOMLINSON. Further research required to confirm that MARY TOMBLESON is indeed MARY ANN TOMLINSON.
