Mary Doyle (1833–1833)

MARY DOYLE was a convict’s child who died at the Parramatta Female Factory and was buried in the parish of St. John’s, Parramatta on 19 October 1833 with a recorded age of four months old. Parentage not recorded. The only detail that was included on the burial record regarding her mother’s identity was the note that her mother was a convict transported per Palambam (1831). However, there were two Irish convict women with that surname on board: ELIZA DOYLE and MARGARET DOYLE. MARGARET DOYLE was forwarded from Newcastle to the Factory in April 1833, so she was an inmate of the Factory at the time of MARY’s birth. It seems MARGARET is the most likely mother of MARY. Further research required.
