Rose was born circa 1790 at Meath, Ireland. She was convicted and sentenced to 7 years in Aug 1817 at Meath.

She arrived in Sydney on the "Elizabeth I" (2) on 19 Nov 1818 and was on the list of convicts forwarded to the Female Factory at Parramatta on 25 Nov 1818.

She and James Brown obtained a marriage license on 28 Feb 1823. They had already had one daughter and a second was born shortly after the marriage.
