This orphan has been claimed by: Paul Ellis

Ann Barefoot would appear to be my Great, Great, Great Grandmother. In 1939 she married James Hockey (convict) and had (at last count) 11 children. Somewhere between 1847 to 1849 they moved to Victoria, and would look to have settled in the central West around kyneton - Elphinstone. Her husband would appear to have had several run ins with the Law. Her Granddaughter -  my Great Great Grandmother also suffered during the depression of the 1890's with her children being wards of the State. Ann passed away on October 9th, 1896 in Kensington Victoria. 

There is some unknowns about Anns mother, on Baptismal records there is an Elizabeth Heany, in other areas there is an Elizabeth Church married to a John Barefoot. Work still needs to be done on this lineage.
