"Mary Bevatt was recorded as Beverton in the Old Bailey court records - 14 years transportation on 20 April 1814. This date and her real name appear as proof on her Certificate of Freedom issued on 23 April 1828 (14 years later). As Lesley suggests, the Lord Melville departed Gravesend on Thursday 29 August 1816 and arrived in Port Jackson early on Monday morning, 24 February 1817 amidst a torrential downpour.

Mary had taken with her her four children (most likely her only surviving children): Sarah, aged about 16; Mary Ann, aged about 13; Isabella, aged about 10; and Joseph, aged about 7. There is no further information on Sarah, though I believe through circumstantial evidence that she debarked in Sydney. Mary Ann married Benjamin Goddard.

Old Mary Bevatt was a nurse/midwife and she is in the 1825 muster but I can't see a mention of her being with Isabella (?). Old Mary died 'by visitation of God' in 1830 when going to deliver yet another colonial baby. She was about 68-70 years of age.
