17 April 1850: a male child, David DORAN was born at Launceston. Mother - Ann Doran, House of Correction. Father not named. (ref. 33/1/23 no. 2713). n.b. There is nothing on this record to confirm if this same Ann Doran, but she was the only female convict of this name in the Colony at the time.  (The child was not admitted to the Orphanage, New Town.) No indication if Ann was still with her husband John McKay at this time.
