Mary KNIGHT (1815?-1853)

Mary KNIGHT1 was born in 1815 (approx.) in Sussex, England.2 Before 1831 she was a dairymaid .3 She was convicted on 10 December 1831 at Sussex GD (Gaol Delivery)* . She was prisoner No. 33/81 and was sentenced to 7 years transportation for robbing her master.3

she migrated from Downs, Ireland to Port Jackson Sydney, NSW arriving on 2 February 1833. Mary travelled on the ship "Fanny" (2) which departed from Downs on 29 July 1832. The ship's master was Henry "Hy" SHERWOOD and the surgeon was Francis LOGAN.4 In February 1833 she was an assigned convict (duties unknown) at Mr BADGERY's property in Sutton Forest, NSW.4

Mary married Martin GRADY on 8 February 1835 at St Luke's Church of England in the parish of Cabamatta in Liverpool, NSW. Martin GRADY and Mary KNIGHT both received the Governor's permission to marry in 1835 although they clearly were involved with each other well before that as their daughter Eleanor was born in October 1834. They were married by banns by Chaplain Robert CARTWRIGHT, in the presence of Daniel CANVIN and Elizabeth CANVIN of South Creek NSW. Martin signed with an X and Mary signed her name.5 She was granted her Certificate of Freedom No. 39/0678 on 6 May 1839.6 In 1840 she was an assigned convict (duties unknown) at presumably Mr BADGERY's property (her husband Martin was there) in Braidwood, NSW.3

she died (aged 38) on 11 August 1853 in Braidwood. She left behind a young family.2 She was buried on 14 August 1853 in Grave No 953 RC Section in the general cemetery in Braidwood.2

 

* Gaol Delivery (GD) is defined by dictionary.net as "..... an authority conferred upon judges and others included in it, for trying and delivering every prisoner in gaol when the judges, upon their circuit, arrive at the place for holding court, and for discharging any whom the grand jury fail to indict. [Eng.]".
