At our October meeting I mentioned there was an opportunity to collaborate with researchers in Galway, Ireland to try to trace what became of all the young women who came out to WA on the ship Palestine. Their names are below.

If you are descended from any of these girls - or you'd simply like a change of focus from your current brick wall - do put your hand up by contacting This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Research into Mary Dooley, Mary Ann Taylor, Mary Flanagan, E Hansberry, Mary and Catherine Cunningham are almost complete, so you can eliminate from your list.
From what we have discovered there were workhouse orphan girls on the Palestine who may have come from Ennis, Co. Clare. These twelve girls not on our (Mountbellew) list may have been from another facility

Ann Archer,
M. Border,
S. Burrow,
S. Evans,
J. Mayne,
M. Rawlings,
H. Stillmon,
W. Warde,
S. Pinder,
M. Cooke,
E. Arnold
M. Hall.

We believe they are from Ennis, though this is yet to be confirmed. We received information from W Warde descendants and they informed us that her grandmother was from Ennis. We are also reaching these.
