Mary Ward

Evidence Type: Newspaper Report
22 April 1826


MARY WARD, free, was again, as had been more than once the case before, charged with drunkenness and disorderly conduct in the public streets. MARY’s plea, of a fifteen years residence in the Colony, had but little effect in mitigating her fate. The chief constable denounced the woman to be possessed of a most insatiable thirst for strong waters. She was ordered a penance of six weeks in the Factory.
