Hi  I am looking for my gg grantmother Mary Ann Collins, arrived with her sister, Bridget Collins on board the Boadicea 1836.  Mary Ann was placed in the Queens Ophane School on her arrival due to her young age.  She went on to marry Charles Pegler and lived in New Norfolk and raised 10 children.   I  would like confirmation that this is my gg grandmother and any further information about her from the time she arrived in Hobart till the time she married.Do you know who her mother is? is there a record with the name of the mother on it.?  We know that her father Timothy Collins was a convict and he was assigned to Mr W Bryant and maybe Mary Ann's mother worked for him as well and that is how they met my gg grandfather Charles Pegler as he was also assigned to the Bryant brothers, and I think he was working at their Estate at Redlands.   Can you please help.  Thanks Helen Howell
