    the wild still lingered in him and the wolf in him merely slept

    "Orphan Girl" by Choral Scholars of University College Dublin
    Oct 2016, 6 minutes

    Between,1848-1850 total of 4,114 young girls were sent from Ireland (87 from my hometown of Ballina) to the Australian ports of Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide. The scheme was devised in response to the need for domestic female labor in the growing Australian colony, along with the related issue of gender imbalance. This coincided with increasing numbers of young female orphans, due to the worsening Famine. As a result, young Irish women were sent to Australia to be hired as domestic servants, and in time to become wives of the colonial settlers.
    Orphan Emigration from County Mayo
    Of the 4,114 orphan girls sent from Ireland, 137 were from County Mayo.
    The first group of young girls/teenagers from Ballina, County Mayo (total of 47) were sent on two ships, the 'Lady Kennaway' to Melbourne and the 'Inchinnan' to Sydney. In the second year,1849 a further 40 girls from Ballina, 25 girls from Ballinrobe, 15 girls from Castlebar, and 10 girls from Westport were sent on this harrowing journey to Sydney, Australia aboard the 'Panama'.
    Mary Browne was one of the Mayo orphans who traveled from Ballina on the 'Panama' to Sydney. It departed from Plymouth on 6 October 1849, and arrived in Sydney on 12 January 1850, with a total of 157 orphans, from Dublin, Carlow, Clare, Cork, Galway, Kilkenny, Mayo, Sligo, Waterford, and Wexford.
    On arrival in Australia, immigrant ships were met by the Immigration Agent, and personal details of every immigrant were recorded. The orphan girls were then housed in depots until they were hired. In Sydney, the Immigration Depot was located at Hyde Park Barracks, a former convict barracks.
    'Ballina Girl', Mary Browne;
    Mary Browne stated that she was aged 17 when she arrived in Sydney on the 'Panama'. The Immigration Agent recorded that she was from “Ballyna” (Ballina) and that her parents, Thomas and Bridget, were both dead. Mary was a Roman Catholic, and could not read or write. It has not yet been possible to trace Mary to her townland of origin. Mary Browne's sister, Bridget Browne. It is known that a Bridget Brown traveled on the first ship to leave Ireland bound for Australia.The reality is however, the two young women were sent to two different cities, nearly two years apart. As neither could read nor write, in all likelihood, if they were sisters, they probably never saw, nor heard from each other again.
    Life in Australia
    Mary Browne was employed in New South Wales (NSW) by a Scottish settler, Dr. Colin Anderson, at Newstead Station, near Inverell, for a period of two years, at £7-8pa. Mary Browne got married and had 11 children, eight of whom survived to adulthood.
    From the destitution of poverty, famine and near death in County Mayo. Mary Browne was one of the lucky ones who prospered in her life in Australia. Mary never did see her sister, Bridget Browne, ever again.

    if someone drives by and you're in your underwear, beating a porcupine to death and laughing hysterically, it might be bad for business.
