Eleanor was sentenced and transported to VDL where she was interred in the Cascade female factory along with Ellen Jones (no relation). They are on the Earl of Liverpool manifesto which is incorrect - they should be on the America manifesto. Neither went to NSW :) Eleanor was my Great x 3 grandmother
