Newlan, Mary (?–c. 1793)

Mary Newlan ( -1793) was found guilty on 21 February 1787 at the Old Bailey, London, of stealing, with Mary Wilson, two linen shirts valued at 4 shillings, and one linen napkin valued at 1 shilling, from a house. Sentenced to 7 years transportation, Newlan arrived at Sydney aboard the Prince of Wales in January 1788 as part of the First Fleet.

Newlan was landed at Port Jackson as Mary Nowland. She was probably the Mary Knowland who was buried at Parramatta on 3 March 1793.
