Martha Hayes (1786-1871) came to Australia in 1803 as the daughter of a female convict. She formed a liaison with Lt. John Bowen and had two daughters by him. Later she married Hobart settler Andrew Whitehead and, after his death, police clerk Barnard Williamson. Martha lived in Hobart Town from 1804 onward, and her life is closely interwoven with many colourful characters who lived in Hobart during the first few decades.
