    Notes 
    • COUCHER/COWCHER/CROUCHER Mary, b. c1770 Greater London area
      d. 28-5-1830 Hobart, Tasmania

      Mary was the daughter of a plasterer, convicted of stealing a silver spoon from her employer. She arrived on the Lady Juliana in Sydney on 3-6-1790. She was later sent to Norfolk Island, where she married fellow convict Thomas Restell CROWDER, and had three children. When the Norfolk Island Penal Colony was closed, they were relocated to Hobart.

      Thomas Crowder was the alias of Thomas RISDALE (1st Fleet). He was also known as Restill, Ristell etc.

      When Mary married him she was using the name Mary CHRISTMAS. It seems a common occurence for convicts to keep their aliases instead of their proper names.
