Mary Ann Clancy (1834–1834)

MARY ANN CLANCY was a convict’s child who died at the Parramatta Female Factory and was buried in the parish of St. John’s, Parramatta on 30 March 1834 with a recorded age of one month old. Parentage not recorded. The only information the burial record provides is that the child’s mother was transported per Hooghly (3) (1831), since that was the only voyage prior to March 1834 that the Hooghly made with female convicts on board. However, there were two convict women with that surname on the ship and another convict married married someone surnamed CLANCY in the colony. Further research required to determine which of the three women was the mother of MARY ANN.
