Thanks for that Anne,
Although I have that information already, I am still on the hunt for more information on Jane Walsh.

I have recently discovered she was from Boherbue, County Cork, Ireland, and was part of an emigration scheme which appears to have originated in County Cork although the barque Edward Coulston left from Liverpool. There is a newspaper clip from the Cork Constitution April 1833
There is some other interesting information on the site for anyone researching Cork immigration & convicts.

Lady De Bathe who seems to have been the head of this Emigration Scheme, it appears she and her husband had estates in Ireland and England. He was in Parliament at one time but at this stage have not been able to find where to search to see if their Manorial Estate Records might hold any further information on her “Good works”
Someone sent me some information (terribly hard to read) which states the girls stayed at the Kings Orphanage in Hobart until jobs could be found for them. It mainly concerned costs of food, etc, however, there was also a page showing where the girls were eventually employed and by whom. Jane Walsh was employed by Mr James Grey of St Pauls Plain and her pay was £12 per annum.

I still have not found Jane's death recorded anywhere. Recently I did find mention of a J. Milkins and a Paul Milkins in the online search Geelong District database: Admission Books of the Geelong Infirmary and Benevolent Asylum; both admitted sometime in 1876. I know Paul died in January 1877 and was stated on his death record he was a widower, I am hoping to find more info from this source.
