Green, Mary

Mary Green was sentenced to seven years transportation for stealing a teapot, cups and saucers. She arrived in Sydney aboard the Prince of Wales in January 1788 as part of the First Fleet. In November 1789 she was sent to Norfolk Island where she lived with John Harris. She moved with Harris and their children to New South Wales in 1796.

It is not known whether Mary Green left with Harris when he returned to England with their son in 1801. She may also have been the Mary Harris who died in New South Wales in 1841, aged 70.
