Mary Louise Bellett (c. 1806–1826)

It is believed that Mary Fisher was born at Norfolk Island, the daughter of Edward Fisher and Elizabeth Gregory, in about 1806. There is no formal record of her leaving the island, with her family, for Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) on the Porpoise in December 1807.

Mary married Jacob Bellett at St David's Hobart on 29 December 1824. She was buried on 19 February 1826 at Pittwater in Tasmania.
