Mary Anne Gregory was born in Devon, England in about 1819. She was either the daughter of Joseph Gregory (2nd marriage certificate) or Robert and Elizabeth Gregory (England Christenings) and may have been related to the sisters Jane and Sarah Elizabeth Gregory.

Mary Anne Gregory had married William Dawe (1814–1850) on 30 Sept 1838 at East Stonehouse, Devon, England. William and Mary Anne Dawe, with their infant son William Henry and William's cousin Sampson Dawe with his wife Jane and their infant daughter Elizabeth, left Gravesend on 5 March 1840 and arrived on 17 June 1840 on board the 453-ton barque Charles Kerr from London, Gravesend, and Deal to Port Adelaide.

William and Mary Anne had a total of six children (five sons and a daughter): William Henry (1839–1924) m. Ann MacDiarmid (1841-1909), Sampson (1841–1911) blacksmith m. Frances Sarah Norman (1842-1921) on 29 June 1865, Joseph (1843–1881) builder m. Harriet Fenn on 06/07/1875, John Maddock (1845–1860) unmarried, Mary Jane (1847–1910) m. Robert Eaton on 06/11/1864 and Robert (1850=1926) m. Catherine Martin on 25/12/1872

Some years after William Dawe’s death in 1850, Mary Anne Dawe (nee Gregory) married Sampson Bastian (junior) at the Weslyan Chapel in Archer Street, North Adelaide in 1861. Sampson and Mary Anne Bastian had a daughter Ann who died aged 7 months on 24 March 1865.
