HAA007 BREAKOUT ARTICLE 2: Ann aka Mary Ann Tierney

Ann aka Mary Ann Tierney (as recorded on her indent) was a bit older than Margaret at 22 years of age. She was from Dublin, a Catholic and also seems to have a tattoo or mark on her upper left arm TMAK - presumably her initials and some scars on her eyebrows.  She was assigned to D Duncomb. [1]

Ann then married James Baker from Wilberforce in 1831 which is near Richmond where Margaret was working for the Cox family but not for much longer as she married Samuel Taylor the following year and moved to Yass.  [2]

After James Baker died in 1834, Ann quickly remarried - this time to farmer George Bowd in 1835. [3]

She does not seem to have been a very happy woman though, according to this article in 1854. [4]
