Hi, it is some time since your request and you may no longer be interested or following Ancestry. My name is Lew Owens, and I am also a descendant of the Kelly family, but from a different direction. I descend from Cecilia Kelly, who was a daughter of Dominick and Lucinda and a sister to Lucy and Isabella (and 2 others who came to Adelaide, Mary (McDermott) and Ellen (Shinnick). Cecilia married Edward Owens in Sheffield in 1838 and migrated to Adelaide in 1840.
I dont believe there is any connection to the Wards, they just happen to be on the same ship. One daughter not named (but possibly Lucinda) is with Dominick and Lucinda- who by 1842 are in their 60s and Lucy would be 14 (doubts about this?)Please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
and we can share info.
