About John Maskey, convict "Duke of Portland" 1807

At Cambridge Assizes on 12 March 1805, John Maskey was sentenced to seven years' transportation for having stolen stockings and gloves. On 27 July 1807, he left

England on the "Duke of Portland", a 523-ton Bordeaux-built vessel under the command of Master I C Spence and carrying 189 convicts. John arrived in New

South Wales on 10 Nov 1807.

Mary Pritchard was convicted at the Monmouth Summer Assizes on 3 August 1801 and sentenced to seven years. She and her friend Margaret Harris had stolen goods from the shop of William Roberts in the early hours of 11 May 1801. Mary left England on the "Glatton" on 23 September 1802 and arrived in Sydney on 11 March 1803.

John and Mary married on 18 August 1826 at Castlereagh, many years after they had started a family.

Before becoming partner to John Maskey, Mary had two children fathered by Ferdinand Meurant. One was Edward Meurant, who went to New Zealand as a sealer and eventually settled there, working as a trader and government interpreter. The other was Elvira, who died at the age of six in a fire on her father's farm.

Records also indicate that John and Mary's eldest daughter was the child of Samuel Terry.
