Hi,My ancestor Mary Elizabeth Sullivan died in Australia in 1889, i have no info on her birthplace though. At some point she did marry a Coleman Bernard Kildea though. According to nearly every death notice and obit in the papers ( even a marriage of a granddaughter) Mary was the daughter/grandaughter of Sir Benjamin Sulivan puisine judge in Madras. Because i havent found her birth or marriage records I cant verify this. Only one record does mention that her father *may* have been a Dr Thomas Sullivan of Sackville St Dublin. He is somehow a son or grandson of Sir Ben.
Any help would be incredible!
PS: She arrived with Kildea in South Australia in 1856 on the "Australia"
