Barefoot and Pregnant Vol 2
« on: Friday 21 April 17 15:01 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have a copy of Barefoot and Pregnant Vol 2. I'm trying to find out if my ggg grandmother is mentioned in it and if so, what pages are relevant. She was one of the 190 orphans sent to Australia on the Lady Kennaway in 1848.
Mary Mitchell aged 16, b Ballinasloe, Galway
She was Roman Catholic from the Ballinasloe workhouse in Galway
It was recorded that she was a nursemaid, cannot read or write; empl Mary Ann Iddles, Great Bourke St, Melbourne, as child's maid, Melbourne 6/10/-, 12 months; in Aug 1849 brought a charge of ill-treatment, assault and breach of agreement against her mistress.

Thanks larkspur..I have seen the Earl Grey orphan page. There's a copy of Barefoot and Pregnant in the National Library but unfortunately that's a long way from where I live. I'm travelling to Melbourne later in the year and will reserve a copy to read. Just trying to find out what pages I should read and copy. I think there may be an index of the orphans names and pages they might be mentioned on.

Caron, there's a copy in the QFHS library in Brisbane if you're up this way.
Also I think at Cleveland library - I was helping at a local expo and the local FH society had it on the desk.
I'll try to get down to Cleveland and have a look for you, but might not be for a week or so.

If I can get it, I'll get you to PM me your address so I can send you any pages I can photocopy.  I presume you are in Oz?

Thank you so much Dawn. That would be amazing. I did spend seven years in Brisbane but that was many years ago. I'm now living in Perth. I'm going to Melb in Sept but I've a few things to look into at the National Library so I was hoping to find which pages would be relevant to me. If you're able to help me much sooner that would be so appreciated. I'm really intrigued by Mary Mitchell. I've been able to get immense information about her after she left the Ballinasloe workhouse and though her immigration records from the Lady Kennaway state her parents are unknown, her marriage records list her father as Jno Mitchell. I'm just waiting on her death cert to arrive to confirm this. I'm still not certain as to whether she was born in 1832 or 33. I'm hoping it's 1832 as I have a baptism record that may tell me her mother's name also. Thanks again Dawn.
