re Margaret Devereux 1461

I am a member of the Female Convict Research Group and I am currently researching Mary Devereux (sr), her daughter Mary (jr) and Margaret, who were transported together on the 'Mary III' arriving on 19th October 1831. Mary and Mary jr were convicted of coining and sentenced to life imprisonment, this was transmted to Transportation for 7 years. I have information about the 2 Mary's because as convicts their lives in VDL were well recorded. Not much information exists about young Margaret and I'm still working on her.

If you wish to add any information about Margaret's mother I can provide further information and references.

kind regards,
