I believe Mary Ann Parker later married John Shelton in 'Victoria Chapel, Huon' in 1861, when she was 17 years of age. The family also believes that Mary's mother was Mary Ann Parker (nee Dixon), deceased, and father was George Parker who had moved to Victoria prior to Mary's admission to the Orphan School.
