I would venture to suggest that Jane died not long after her last recorded gaol confinement in 1875.

She was already elderly  at that time and in very poor health and an ongoing damaging lifestyle.

Using NSW bmd search and entering in surname the word Unknown brings up a sadly large list of deaths. The whereabouts of the death is given.

It is possible that Jane is numbered among  these.

Yes, sadly, very possible, likely.

I cannot find any one as Jane FISHER noted in my offline  Sydney notes.

I think the Mrs STACY of Albert St was likely Sarah A STACEY, nee FISHER, who was married in 1872.

Likely you have much of the above, but it can be sensible to share with the regulars on the Australia Board to give background.

JM  :)

Just confirming that Sarah STACEY was the daughter of Samuel FISHER.

NSW Electoral Roll  1878 PADDINGTON
Charles STACY, Albert lane, Paddington, freehold.
Samuel FISHER, Albert Street, Paddington, residence.


NSW ER 1870 PADDINGTON
Charles STACY, Victoria St, Paddington, freehold.

NSW ER 1870 WEST SYDNEY
Samuel FISHER, Cooper's buildings, off Newtown Road, household

Sydney Benevolent Asylum has admission 23 Nov 1897 for a Jane FISHER, but she was then aged 37.   http://www.sydneybenevolentasylum.com/ 

ADD
These are all locations near to Darlinghurst,  :)  so perhaps Jane may have been in contact with her family, afterall the 1874 and 1875 charges do not include Vagrancy.

Hi Marj and Sparrett

Thank you for all of this with Samuel (Some I had but not all this new electoral information and nothing about asylum . I am gobsmacked!! & yes you are correct this is all for him and yes Mrs Stacey with funeral is his daughter. SO yes I had a lot of this but not all the other  of this and run out of complete ends. He lived a hard life and must have be trying for him at times. Judging by all I have read but I also feel for Jane as well.

I think I searched High, low & sideways for Janes deaths but have come up complete dead ends.

I think the Samuel Fisher in Wellington might be his son???  Grafton area in nsw is where he died?? But a fair distance from wellington.

That's the trouble there is no one actively researching either Jane or Samuel and I messaged what little I found to the people but no replies.
Thank goodness for shipping records or I wouldn't have found parents were.

So again I have turned to this wonderful site & both Majm & Sparrett Have assisted. YOu both are wonderful (At least I know there is an Australian board & based in UK). So thank you

I do think her health would not of been good - mental & physical So I also think she may have passed even before Samuel.
I think chances are getting slimmer, which is sad as no one knows where this poor lady is. Samuel is in Waverley cemetery I found yesterday.

I thought about a death cert for Samuel as I was lucky with finding quite a bit with him but Jane I would buy a cert BUT can't find even her death. ???
Janes maiden name was McBride - I did also try this with some things but turned up nothing

Thank you both again.
Loads - LOL!!!! - Fisher, McBride, Hill, Power, Borserio, Bombardieri, McCarthy, Veale, Wheeler, Wheelerbreed, Andrew

That could mean we are looking for a death 1853 to 1856 ... and likely closer to 1856, ie admission date ... what about his siblings...
