Can anyone provide me with details of this woman's parentage? She was the wife of Captain Daniel Murphy and the mother of Henrietta Murphy (who married Edward Studd in Calcutta in 1817).
According to family tradition, she was the daughter of Trophime Gerard O'Lally, Marquis de Lally-Tollendal. However, she is not mentioned in a genealogy apparently signed by her father on 29 October 1817. In this he refers only to his wife Elizabeth and "a single daughter", Elizabeth Felicity.
Might she be an illegimitate daughter? Is there any surviving record of her existence?
