THE LAST LADIES


Female convicts on the "Duchess of Northumberland" in April 1853.


Chris spent many years (on and off) researching the lives of the female convicts who arrived on the "Duchess of Northumberland" from England in April 1853.  In February 2004 she published the book, "The Last Ladies".  The names of the women are listed below.  If you think you may be a descendant of one of them, I would love to hear from you.
