Mary appears in the 1811 volume of Lloyd’s Register with Lauchlan, master, M. Boyd, owner, and trade London–Botany Bay.[5]

Captain Lauchlan (or Laughlin) sailed from Portsmouth on 26 November 1811, bound for New South Wales and Bengal. Mary was at Madeira on 1 December and Rio de Janeiro on 2 January 1812.[6]

Mary arrived at Port Jackson on 2 May, with stores. She left on 1 August, bound for Bengal.[7] She sailed in company with Clarkson, Clarkson, master. On 16 August they saw a group of islands, the southernmost at

9°20′S153°40′E.[8] These appear to be the Laughlan (Nada) Islands of Waboma and Budelun in the Solomon Sea.

She reached Malacca on 28 September and arrived at Diamond Harbour on 27 October and Calcutta on 1 November. Homeward bound, she was at Diamond Harbour again on 7 February 1813 and at Point de Galle on 13 March. She reached St Helena on 9 June and arrived at The Downs on 10 August.[6]

The Register of Shipping for 1815 showed Marys master as Lauchlan, her owner as Boyd, and her trade as London transport.[4]

The Register of Shipping for 1820 showed Marys master as Moffat, her owner as Boyd, and her trade as London–Sierra Leone. She had undergone a large repair in 1819.[9]

Captain J.F. Steele sailed from London on 10 June 1823 and arrived at Hobart on 5 October.[2] She sailed on to Port Jackson and arrived there on 18 October.[10] She had embarked 127 female convicts and she landed 67 at Hobart and 57 at Sydney, having perhaps left one in London before sailing.[11]
