I am wondering about the family background of a Mary Reilly ,from Ballyconnell , County Cavan , Ireland.......
Nineteen-year-old Mary Reilly , a Laundress , was aboard the ship "WALLASEA" , bound for Sydney , New South Wales , Australia , in 1865 She appeared to have travelled alone or at least unaccompanied by a Reilly.
I would love to learn something of Mary's Background , including her Birth , her Family , her schooling , her place of work.
Would her beinga Laundress mean that she necessarily worked at a Laundry or could she have worked as household domestic staff , I wonder ?
It is known that Mary Reilly was married at Grafton , New South Wales , Australia , in 1867 The Marriage Documentation offers no parental information.
