Friends of the Orphan Schools

There were three sisters, Sarah, Bridget and Ellen and another child, Catherine, who was born either soon after arriving or onboard the Phoebe. They arrived on the Phoebe with their Mother Ann.

Eight days after arriving Bridget and Ellen were placed in the Orphan School, Sarah at a later date. 

Sarah and Ellen's father was Patrick Ryan. Her mother, Ann's, maiden name was Quirk.  Ann married Robert Archer in 1849 and Sarah went by the name Archer.  I have not been able to find any other info about her, there is no other info about her in the family notes.
