Ellen Mulvehill, my great grandmother, her daughter Mary Ann (baptised Marianne Taylor at St Francis Church abt 1847). Ellen married Cornelius Lyons at St Francis abt 1852. A witness at the wedding was Bridget Mulvehill & I'm wondering if she is Ellen's sister. Ellen & Cornelius had a daughter Bridget and son Cornelius. I do know that Mary and Cornelius were in State care in the 1860s. Does anyone know when Ellen came to Victoria, and when she died, or any other info on her?

Thank you. I saw this months ago and as you have suggested, I treated it with caution and didn't add it to my tree. I think I will have to try and track down a death record for Ellen.
Thank you for the information.
Hello, I saw your post and I am ashamed to say that cornelius Lyons is my ggggrandfather Bridget being my gggrandmother. I read the trove articles on him a while back and stopped doing the tree. Sad to say that Bridget married an ex convict by the name of Robert Zelley who seems to have been a bigamist and unsavoury character. he was many years older than her. I think Zelley and Lyons knew each other. Anyway that's not your tree. The info on Ellen is interesting - I always thought her surname was Melville . There is a cornelius Lyons Tasmanian convict arrived 1843.....may well be him.
Good luck with your searching
