Hibbs, Mary (1770–1844)

Mary Pardoe/Barlow was convicted of theft and sentenced to seven years transportation on 2 April 1788 at the Warwick Assizes. She arrived in Sydney aboard the Lady Juliana in June 1790 as part of the Second Fleet. A daughter Ann was born shortly before the ship anchored in Port Jackson and was christened in Sydney on 20 June 1790. Ann had been fathered by a seaman, Edward Scott, who was sent back to England with the Lady Juliana on 25 July 1790.

Mary was sent to Norfolk Island where she married Peter Hibbs in a mass ceremony in 1791. She was buried alongside Hibbs in the Wiseman's Ferry cemetery at Lower Portland Head, New South Wales.
