most of those that left for america in the 1870s were deported from prison under amnesty never to return, my own g grandfather was deported in sept 1866 but returned within weeks as he was a Head Centre in dublin he had 1200 men who he was preparing for the failed rising of 1867. he was a member of the I.R.B. since its inception. he was arrested under the alias name of james byrne in pilsworths pub with John Devoy in feb 1866. i have researched a lot of the fenians who were arrested with him so i could possibly know about him if i knew his name. devoys recollections or joseph denieffe's recollections might mention that amnesty, but personally i have not come across it.

mary nolan age 12 1911 census of tivoli ROAD st josephs orphanage may be the one you are looking for, i am sure some one else on this site will be able to help you find out how to access info as to find if she is your relative. madge nolan married to ambrose king may have gone to australia as her daughter has a post on dublin roots. Ambrose and Madge nee Nolan King living at 10 Rainsford Ave 1939 register of electors. try this Google -dublin roots ambrose king and the message should come up. i had been searching for years trying everything to find my relatives in wexford couldnt find them on 1901 census turns out father in prison mother in institution children in magdeline convent wexford and son in artane dublin so sometimes you have to think outside the box so to speak. if you can find which nuns ran the orphanage st josephs on tivoli road and write to them i am sure they will be gad to help you out,the nuns i wrote to replied within a couple of weeks .giving me great details. also remember there was no social welfare for a widow in those times so she may have been forced to put her there due to poverty. girls were usually released at 16 on licence to go into service or if the mothers circumstances changed for the better released back to their mother.
