Abstract

Mary Ann Langhorne married Thomas Chapman, teacher, in London on 1 January 1821, and sailed to Van Dieman's Land on the "Britomart" in October 1821. Chapman was granted land at Macquarie River, but his wife left him and the bushranger, Brady and his gang, robbed him so he leased his land to his neighbour William D. Kelman and in 1826 went to Sydney where he worked in warehouses. On his wife's reported death he married again and visited England where his second wife died. He married a third time and again visited England where he claimed the annuity left to his first wife by the will of her aunt Lydia Hooley. - Private Deposit C.2
