In the non-Annotated Convict Register it states that Ellen was 20 years old; she could neither read or write; Religion Catholic and trade a kitchen maid.  Native place was stated but cannot read the handwriting maybe Ba…..  Convicted of stealing calico and sentenced at Cork in March 1831 for years.  Had one prior conviction for which she served 6 months.  Physical attributes: Height 5 feet 0 1/2 inches; complexion ruddy and freckled; hair dark brown and eyes dark hazel.  She was assigned to Mrs Barkus.  This assignment confirmed in the 1837 muster.  Transport number 165.  Certification of freedom obtained in 1839.  Number 39/1803.
