This orphan has been claimed by: Helen Strickland
Frances Quill, daughter of Mary Quill (arrived Earl Grey, 1849) and Patrick Quill (arrived
Hyderbad, 1850) was my great great grandmother. Frances lived at Blackbrush with her parents after leaving the Queens Orphan School. In
1857 she married Matthew Coleman but they separated a few years later and didn't
have any children.
Later Frances formed a partnership with Patrick Henry, an assisted immigrant from Londonderry. In 1835, at the age of 15,
Patrick had arrived in the colony in the ship Brothers with a family group. Patrick and Frances had a large family, 7 boys and 4 girls. Frances and Patrick left Tasmania for New Zealand (along with with most of their children) after 1889.
Two daughters married and raised families in Tasmania.
Agnes Henry married William Owen in 1894 at New Norfolk.
Sarah Henry married Albert Arthur Bonser at Ringarooma in the early 1900s.
