A number of online trees have Ada's birth date at 15 Dec 1874 and 15 Dec 1875 and if she was born on either of those dates then her given name was not registered as Ada.  I would be interested in your thoughts how Ada was the dau of Mary HAYLOCK of Carisbrook.

Mary's obit says that Michael SULLIVAN died in 1886, not 1866.

What is a police searcher?

Debra  :)

There is no death registered in South Australia for a Michael SULLIVAN in 1886.

I note that there were no births registered to Michael SULLIVAN and Mary COONAN post 1865.  The Michael SULLIVAN who died in 1866 was 54 years of age.

Ada died in 1945 in Victoria and according to the Vic BDM website, her father was Thomas and she was born in Adelaide, South Australia.

Female police searcher   .... seems from reading through Trove that it is the female responsible to 'frisk' female offenders to enable the policemen to determine the charges and to prepare the list of property found on the female offender.

I am thinking there's more than ONE female in Adelaide in the 1870s named Mary Sullivan.   There's the female searcher; there's the widow with a dray used as a taxi, driven by her son John, and there's Mary O'Sullivan.

 :)   I didn't know either, and in searching trove for Mary Sullivan it just fell into place particularly one article detailing her search of the prisoner name (I think) Ann

On another thread recently one of the regulars on this board wrote about learning something new everyday. 

I hope my guess is accurate ... it makes good sense to me.   :)  and so I learnt something new today, and don't have a clue how to unlearn it if some-else finds a different definition...  ::)  :-X
