     Jane Stevens There are conflicting accounts of Jane Stevens, one that she was born in England and arrived as a free settler, two she is also reputed to have beeen an aboriginal woman.

Administrative Appeals Tribunal and Independent IndigenousAdvisoryCommittee findings 18 October 2002 (Extract from page 32

Mr Bone also produced photographs of two of the sons of Richard Timbs and Jane Stevens and of Mary Ann Cowen’s son, Edwin Robert Bones and his wife, Jane Stevens’ granddaughter Lucy Berry. We consider these photographs demonstrate elements of aboriginal features, in particular that of darkness of colour.

In the case of Jane Stevens, the archival record could not account for the strong oral history or Lucy Berry’s appearance if indeed she is the same Jane Stevens. If it was the same Jane Stevens, it may at that point in the colony’s history have been odd that arriving at the age of 20 as a free settler, when men greatly out numbered women, she would not marry for 6 years. Her married name was Jane Dunn. Her married name was Jane Timbs. She was born in 1813 at England. She married Richard Timbs, son of Thomas Timbs and Elizabeth Hewitt, on 25 April 1841 at Hobart, Van Diemen's Land, Australia. Jane Stevens married John Dunn on 10 July 1871 at Little Oyster Cove, Tasmania, Australia. Jane Stevens died on 18 May 1892 at Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.
