In 1839, in Launceston, Mary Ann Tway married Abraham Turner, a very well-behaved convict per' Lady Harewood' arriving in VDL in 1829. He received his pardon in 1840 and he and Mary Ann welcomed the first of their seven children, Matilda, into the world. They lived and worked in the Yorktown area and the Don, as Abraham was a Sawyer and helped to clear much of the land in this area. Life must have been extremely tough for them out in this wild bush and Mary Ann, unfortunately died giving birth to their son, John, on October 28th, 1861.
