Seeking information on my great-auntie Hilda Eveline MULLIN born 1883 in Ballaarat, Victoria, Australia. She left the family very early and settled in Melbourne in the Fitzroy/Carlton areas. She had a couple of illegimate children who both died as babies in 1903 & 1904 respectively. She was working as a barmaid around this time although family legend says she was an actress in Melbourne theatre. During the late 1920s and early 1930s she lived at Hanover Street, Fitzroy. No marriage is recorded but she died in 1938 at 13 Byron Street, North Melbourne under the name of Hilda SCANLAN, supposedly wife of a John (Jack) SCANLAN. On her death certificate it is stated that the couple married in Sydney but this is unproven. I believe John too was an actor but also cannot prove this. John died in 1943 at the same address. Perhaps those with an interest in theatre could verify this involvement or otherwise. Any help in bringing some light on the life of my great-auntie is much appreciated. So far her life has always been shrouded in secrecy. Regards, Rob Bell, Victoria, Australia.
