My Grandmother was born 12/12/1905 & died 4/10/1977. That name is on my fathers death certificate. There do not seem to be any records of my Grandmothers birth. I have Charles Hansonís Death Certificate & it only lists the 3 children he had with his wife Ann Ford.

I wonder if she was adopted by the Hansons? The birth cupoflife found on 12/12/1905 for a Mary Elizabeth to an unmarried mum (Norah Valentine Donnelly) is a big coincidence... Informal adoption were not uncommon at the time.

Do you have her marriage certificate?

Agree she could have been adopted or possibly the child of one of the daughters brought up as a half sister?

Do you know about Charles' brother?

August Lambert HANSON, died Nov 1946 (reg B9316), son of Jacob HANSON & Sophia LARSEN, aged 85. He is buried at South Brisbane: https://graves.brisbane.qld.gov.au/

August married Rebecca BOWERY (nee BATTEN) in 1897 in Brisbane (B18850). No children found. Her parents were Benjamin BATTEN and Jane GARDNER. (The Benjamin [Bengeman] BATTEN in cemetery index, d. 1917 was her brother; her mother Jane died in 1914).

It looks like Rebecca's first husband Henry BOWERY died (drowned) in 1893 aged 46: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/174085653 and https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/20343805

August was a marine engineer. Funeral notices: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/49336714

His wife died in 1939. Funeral notices: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/188596108
Probate: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/40833854 and https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/40888685

EDIT: Henry BOWERY & Rebecca BATTEN married in Reading England in 1872. See FreeBMD.

I do have their Marriage Certificate  my Grandmothers parents are listed as Charles Hanson & Elizabeth Anne Forde .  My father told me that a Mrs Byrne who lived next door to the Hansonís had an affair  with Mr Hanson & the result was my Grandmother . Mr Byrne not impressed handed the baby over the fence & told Mr Hanson he could bring her up . On my fathers death certificate his mother is listed as  Mary Elizabeth Byrne . The above is what us Grandchildren have been told . I was in the BDM Office in Brisbane & they have no Birth record of my Grandmother under various names I gave them . Maybe she was Mary Elizabeth Donnelly . She did name her daughter Elizabeth . Elizabethís first born daughter was named Mary . It is all very interesting to say the least

With regards to the adoption in 1930:  Legal adoptions in Qld began in 1928, according to this web-site. 
http://artsonline.monash.edu.au/historyofadoption/queensland-adoption-records/

Others with a better knowledge of Qld records may be able to tell you whether records are available which may give you more information.

Unfortunately open indexes for births in Qld only go up to 1918 so we can't search for a record which may be Elizabeth b1924.   

The birth registration found by cupoflife in 1905 (Mary Elizabeth Donnelly)  seems a possibility for Lilian Mary. Edit: I note that Norah Valentine DONNELLY's husband, William PICKING died in 1935 and I think she remarried to a BURTON.

See below  where I post: I see a Norah Valentine BURTON on electoral rolls in Rockhampton but when I look harder they go up to 1980 and Norah Valentine DONNELLY/PICKING died in 1965.   :-[  Sorry!
Not very helpful, I'm afraid!

Where did you get her date of birth? Does date match with her marriage and death?

 Adding to my post re Norah Valentine DONNELLY/PICKING

I see a Norah Valentine BURTON on electoral rolls in Rockhampton but when I look harder they go up to 1980 and Norah Valentine DONNELLY/PICKING died in 1965.   :-[  Sorry!

May be worth contacting the Picking/Donnelly tree owner on ancestry to get more information.
