dc.description.biographicalMary Ann came to South Australia with her parents Charles and Ann Vickerman at about age 3 in 1840. Her mother died in 1846 when Mary was about 9, leaving her, as the eldest daughter, to help her father raise four children. Mary Ann married William Peat in January 1857 in Adelaide, but William died 11 years later. Mary Ann married Frederick Finniss, ten years her junior and a police trooper at the time, in July 1870. Mary Ann followed her husband to the Territory in January 1872. In 1895 when Mary Ann was 58, she was one of the 82 women who enrolled to vote after the franchise was granted to South Australian and Territory women in 1894. Her occupation was listed as "married woman". Her husband, Frederick Finniss, contested the 1896 election against V.L. Solomon but was unsuccessful in his bid. Mary Ann left the Territory for Adelaide in 1909 following the death of Fred in 1908. Mary Ann herself died in Adelaide at 90 on 29 July 1927.en
