In the colony, ELIZA GARDINER was incarcerated at the Parramatta Female Factory. Mother of MARY GARDINER and CECILIA GARDINER. A child named “ELIZA GARDINER” died at the Factory in February 1839 with a recorded age of three and was buried in the parish of St. John’s, Parramatta. Since the ages line up exactly, it may be that that child was in fact MARY GARDINER, but was registered with her mother’s name rather than her own.
