Catherine Keane,Castlebar,Mayo
« on: Thursday 18 January 18 05:18 GMT (UK) »
Looking for any information on Catherine Keane born 19 April 1832, Castlebar, Mayoand her brother Michael 1831.
Convicted together at Mayo on 3 January 1849, for stealing 3 sheep, both sentenced to 7 years in Tasmania.
Michael died in Richmond (Bridewell) prison,Dublin aged 18 years.
Catherine lived in Longford, Tasmania and died aged 93 in 1925, possibly the last convict woman to die there.
She married John Smith and had 9 children.
Her life in Ireland is a mystery,one theory is that she was from a travellor/gypsy family, as she had very long black hair ,wore large hoop earings,and was partial to smoking a clay pipe.

The document reference in each entry below is the National Archives of Ireland reference to the original document in the archives. The microfilm reference number refers to the set of microfilms presented to Australia in 1988.

Not sure what they would contain

Would they have been in Castlebar jail before being sent elsewhere?
Their crime may have been mentioned in a newspaper.

Try surname variation Cain, if you do manage to find newspaper archive.
