Mother(?) Mary b. 1755, d. 21 May 1837
     Convict Maria Riseley was Shopkeeper. She Maria Riseley, wife of officer and entrepreneur Edward Lord, herself engaged in business, mother of three daughters and outwardly respectable, was born in England in 1780. Her parents were Robert and Mary Riseley, and she had at least one brother, John. She was better educated than many girls of her day, for she could write well and had considerable business ability, possibly helped by commercial training or experience of some sort. This suggests that the family was reasonably well-to-do, for poor people had no money to spare for girls' education. Her married name was Thompson. Her married name was Lord. She was born in 1780 at England. She was the daughter of Robert Riseley and (?) Mary. Convict Maria Riseley was convicted in August 1802 at Surrey Assizes, Surrey, England,for stealing from a dwelling-house, and was sentenced to transportation for seven years. She married John Thompson circa 1804. Convict Maria Riseley arrived at on the convict transport ship 'Experiment' on 24 June 1804 in Port Jackson, New South Wales, Australia from England from England
The Experiment, had a rough trip out and many of its load of women convicts were ill on arrival.
On recovery, most of the women were assigned to settlers. Officially they did general household work, but many settlers considered sex as part of the women 's duties, and a large number of assigned female convicts became pregnant. It seems probable that Maria Riseley was one of these, for by early 1805 she was pregnant, living at the Female Factory, where expectant convict mothers lived until their babies were born. The Factory was a trying place where there was 'not much work, but confinement and scantiness of food', according to John Pascoe Fawkner, whose rather scandalous memoirs provide the main source for Maria Lord's story at this time.
So, after a fairly depressing beginning to her life in Australia -a frightful voyage out, seduction, then the dreary Factory -Maria Riseley was waiting for the birth of her child, when in April 1805 Edward Lord arrived. He had sailed from Hobart to find a woman, and Fawkner's story goes that he went to the Female Factory and ordered all the women to be paraded before him so he could choose one. Rather surprisingly, he selected Maria Riseley, seven months pregnant. The only question Lord asked her was whether she would go to Van Diemen’s 's Land with him. She assented. 'She was at once let out, and he took possession of her, as truly for a slave to do his behests, or suffer for neglect or refusal,' wrote Fawkner. One can only guess at Maria Riseley's motives. Did she want security, or adventure, was she glad to move away from her earlier lover, or was she merely tired of life in the Factory? Perhaps Lord caught her eye; he was an arrogant, confident man. She lived in 1805 at Female Convict Factory, New South Wales, Australia. She married Edward Lord, son of Joseph Lord and Corbetta Owen, circa 18 October 1808 at Van Diemen's Land, Australia; When Lieutenant-Governor Collins died suddenly in 1810, his second-in-command took over as acting commandant, for a successor could neither be appointed nor arrive for months. Lieutenant Edward Lord therefore took up the reins of power, such as they were. He was a novel commander for Hobart Town: not only was he married but his wife lived with him, at least for part of the time. Their marriage, like many others, did have a Past -not to mention a Future. Convict Maria Riseley died on 22 July 1859 at Tasmania, Australia.
