She married Daniel Brown, who had arrived as a Convict aboard the "Guildford" in 1812, on 30 August 1813 at Windsor, New South Wales, Australia[2]and two of their children were Lucy (Brown) Upton, Mary Anne (Brown) Dorset, Ann (Brown) Norris, Martha (Brown) Pearson, David Brown, and Emma (Barker) Brown.
