Mary Jackson, who arrived on the Diana, was quickly sent to the Female Factory.
In 1833 she was the midwife there. It is not know exactly how long she was at the Factory or in the role of midwife. But during this time she was paid eight pence per diem. By 1841 Mary was living at Petersham in Sydney.
