Smith or Lawrence, Mary transported 1814 Broxbournbury

Records from the Broxbournebury show that there were two 'Mary Smiths" and one Mary Lawrence. From records - birth and death certificates of her children, 'our Mary' went under the name of 'Smith" and 'Lawrence." she received 7 years transportation and married a George Davis in 1818. Just to confuse there was a Mary Davis on board the Broxbournebury.
One of the Mary Smiths received a life sentence and married James Chillon at Parramatta.

am trying to find out if our 'Mary' was the remaining 'Smith or a Lawrence'.

marriage certificate has her as 'Lawrence"

Can anyone help
