Jane Hassey (1830–1832)

JANE HASSEY was a convict’s child who died at the Parramatta Female Factory in 1832. She was possibly the daughter of MARY HASSEY, transported per Brothers (2), who died at Parramatta’s Colonial Hospital on 19 January 1832, aged 30. Alternatively, JANE may have been the daughter of ELLEN HAFFEY, who was transported per Hooghly (3). Further research needed to confirm.
