I am trying to find details of a passenger of the ship Diadem, arrived Melbourne 1850.
My gr grandmother was on board:
Sharkey, Elizabeth age 17 from Omagh Co Tyrone.
How can I find more details on her in Ireland - her parents are unknown?
Where were the girls taken to as the 'depot' in Melbourne?
She worked for John English in Melbourne - he paid 10 pounds for six months.
All of this information is from 'Barefoot & Pregnant' - thanks Trevor.
All the best from Allannah
