John Woolf Walklate, convict arrived 08 Nov 1842 on the Marquis of Hastings (see Page 219, he was given permission 16 Oct 1849 to wed Ann Dorathy Gangell free, her grandfather William Gangell came as a Royal Marine Sergeant on the Ocean, 1804. While the voyage to Rio de Janeiro had been relatively orderly and uneventful for those on the Calcutta, who included George and Mary Kearley, the conduct on the Ocean was poor, needing more help with discipline. Harris records the six Marines as being Corporal William Gangell and the six privates Robert Evans, James Clisshold, John Kellan, William Davis, James Price and George Kearley. Mary Kearley's name does not appear on Harris' passenger list so it is not clear whether she accompanied George to the Ocean. Both ships set sail from Rio on 20 July 1803 and that after just two days the Ocean lost sight of the Calcutta in a gale and thereafter for the rest of the trip they did not sight any vessel.
The Marines led by Lt. Johnson went ashore with some convicts to pitch tents and to sink casks in the sand to create wells for fresh-water at high tide. The camp was arranged on a flat sandy plain between headlands. The convict's tents were closest to the headland Western Sister. The Marines' tents were placed next followed by the parade ground and the storage tents. Rows of tents were interspersed with roads. Collins pitched his marquee at the command post on the eastern headland with two large cannons facing the sea and a flagstaff carrying the Union Jack. But these arrangements took quite some time so that most of the convicts were not unloaded with their baggage until 16 October 1803.[5]
Shortly after the tents were erected a copper was installed for washing and Mary Kearley, along with Elizabeth Bean and Sarah Spooner, was named as one of the Marines Wives listed in Governor Collins’ Garrison Orders at Port Phillip on 26 Oct 1803 who would be laundresses for the Marines:
