Biography

1814: Mary Lindsay was born around 1814 in Inverness-shire, Scotland.[1] This information is all that is available and is in her convict records.

1831: Mary married Isaac Williamson in Scotland somewhere around 1831. Their son John Lindsay was 3 years old when he was transported with his mother to Van Diemen's Land on the Arab in 1834.[2]. Additionally her husband Isaac Williamson is described as having a tattoo "Star B. heart & J 1831 on rt arm" in his physical description which was used for identification while in the convict system. This description was taken on or before arrival in Van Diemen's Land, Australia in 1834.[3]

1844: Mary applied for permission to marry William Higgs on the 1st of July 1844[4]. She needed permission to marry from the Government while she was convict, and by this time she had a Ticket-of-Leave and was less restricted in her movements. Permission was granted and she married William on the 31st of July 1844 in the Westbury Church, Westbury, Van Diemen's Land, Australia according to the Rites and Ceremonies of the Church of England[5].

1864: After William Higgs death Mary married William Pearce on the 25th of January 1864 near Needles, Tasmania, Australia at the house of William Pearce according to the Rites of the United Church of England and Ireland[6]. By this time she had a Certificate of Freedom and was no longer required to get permission from the Government.

1870: Mary was married for the last time on the 27th June 1870 at Whitefoord, Tasmania, Australia to William Hookey. They were married in her new husband's house at Whitefoord Hills according to the Rites of the United Church of England and Ireland[7].

1877: Mary Lyndsay Hookey died of Cancer of the Breast on the 17th of October 1877 in Deloraine, Tasmania[8]. Her husband, William Hookey, survived her until 1899.
