Mary Elizabeth Donaldson was born 5 February 1972 at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Battery Point, a suburb of Hobart, Tasmania. She is youngest of four children to Scottish parents, Henrietta (née Horne), an executive assistant to the vice-chancellor of the University of Tasmania, and John Dalgleish Donaldson, an academic and mathematics professor and member of the Clan MacDonald. Her paternal grandfather was Captain Peter Donaldson (1911–1978). She was named after her grandmothers, Mary Dalgleish and Elizabeth Gibson Melrose, and was born and raised in Hobart.

Life of her ancestor Marion Horne, newly widowed at 40 and living a hand-to-mouth existence in a shabby two-up, two-down fisherman's cottage on the east coast of Scotland. Someone who had to get by on handouts from friends and former shipmates of her late husband John, who'd died at sea the previous year.
When Marion's daughter Annie married fisherman Peter Donaldson in June 1871, the family's centuries-long association with the area was about to change.
Peter's grandson – also Peter – finally made the move which was to truly transform the family fortunes when in 1963 he emigrated to Tasmania.
