Pontefract, Mary Ann of Yorkshire.
I'm looking for any information on the family of Mary Ann Pontefract, born about 1863 Sheffield , Yorks. Father is said to be Frederick, mother was Elizabeth Smith. It is believed that she had at least one younger brother who died young.
Mary Ann (or Polly) came to Australia on the Bounty ship "Australian". First married 21 July 1883 John Robinson, quarryman, on this m/cert her birthplace was given as Leeds. One child of this marriage was John, who I understand returned to live with relatives in England when John was killed in an accident
Second husband, (my line) was August Germundsson, ship's engineer of Sweden. They had two children August and Mary Ann.
Third husband was Joseph Lube who died at sea
