Hi, could you confirm her name please. DOWSE or DOUCE? Her Parents names as well if you have them, this will confirm right person possibly. There are no marriages or deaths on Qld Births, Marriages or Deaths.

Have you looked into the possibility of her return to UK.?

Hi keyboard,
many thanks for the freemantle information,
i have now found it with some searching for douce as a domestic i was looking for Dowse and an Dressmaker and as i had her landing Brisbane thats also where i looked.(see below)
Name   Maria Dowse
Birth   1878
Origin   Lincolnshire, England
Departure   London, England
Arrival   5 Dec 1907 - Brisbane - Age: 29

I take it then that she then sailed to Brisbane hence what i have found above,also she seems to have been travelling alone,  which i assume would be unusual for a lady been also single,back then,heres hoping she did well and i can  find what happened to her afterwards.
many thanks

The Ortona went from WA to Victoria, NSW and on to Brisbane.

The Brisbane arrival:

http://www.archives.qld.gov.au/Researchers/ImmigrationIndexes/Documents/Ortona_1906_May_to_1908_Mar_QSA_Item_18490.pdf

Scroll down to PDF page 13.

It wasn't unusual for single women to emigrate alone but she may have known someone in Queensland.
