    • Possible death located in 1874 under Arthur Clarke alias Henry aged between 65-70 at Mcleay River.
    Notes 
    • Mary Ryan's father was listed as being Arthur Hanratty on her death certificate. This caused some confusion as upon her marriage her maiden name was Ryan. I found the death under Brezley. According to her death certificate her father's name was Arthur Hanratty, occupation being Pig Merchant.

      On the death certificate of Mary Jackson (nee Shoulders) who died in 1880 , the eldest daughter of Mary, this shows her mother's surname as being Nauraty. When I saw this, I thought that maybe this was a mistake, but now that her death certificate says her father's surname was Hanratty, will make the assumption that this is what it was. Now to try and figure out why she used the surname of Ryan when she got married to John Shoulders. Do not know where the surname Ryan comes from (maybe she was adopted/fostered out?) but here is the information I have come up with since receiving a copy of the death certificate.

      Found an Arthur Handratty in the 1841 census who was living at Dungong NSW. (details of the 1841 census on the sep page). I will make the conclusion that this Arthur Handratty is the same person and is the possible father of Mary seeing that he was living at Dungong (near Clarence Town) within 5 years of her birth.

      Found a marriage between a Arthur Hanratty and a Ellen Hanratty in 1834 in NSW. Details on the microfilm is as follows:

      Robert or Arthur Hanratty per Mangles 5 to Ellen Hanratty per Edward were joined together in wedlock by me this 19th day of September 1834 at Sydney.
      Both Robert and Ellen were tried and convicted on the same date. Robert's surname in the Convict index's shows it as being Hauratly. In the convict marriage index's, it shows that Ellen's name was Eleanor Hanratty alias Moran.

      Convict Indent for Robert is as follows:
      Robert Hauratty alias Johnston (ref fiche 669 075 398 4/4013)
      Arrived: 2nd June 1828 (note: not listed in the 1828 census) per Mangles 5
      Native Place: Armagh Ireland
      Trader: Carter
      Offence: Picking Pockets
      Where Tried: Monaghan Ireland
      When: 7th August 1827
      Received a certificate of Freedom 16/8/1834

      Convict indent for Elleanor Hanratty alias Moranr
      Age 24 - catholic
      Arrived per Edward
      Where Tried: Monaghan Ireland
      When: 7th August 1827 (note: Tried on the same date as Robert above)
      Offence: Stole money

      1841 Census NSW

      Males - 2 - between 21 & under 45
      Females - 1 - between 2 & 7 (note: could this be Mary?)
      Females - 1 - between 21 & under 45
      Married Male- 1 (Arthur ?)
      Single Male- 1 (not known)
      Single Female- 1 (Mary?)
      Married Female- 1 (Eleanor ?)
      Civil Condition male 2
      Other free persons: 1 born in colony and 1 other free. 4 roman catholic

      Now I cannot be certain if this Robert/Arthur Hanratty alias Johnston and Elenaor Hanratty alias Moran are Mary's Parents. I have done a search for birth for Mary in NSW between 1830-1840, under all possible surnames (Ryan, Hanratty, Johnston and Moran), but to no luck.

      Variant spellings of the surname Hanratty, that I have come across so far:
      Hanratty, Hauratty, Heneratty, Henratty, Hayralty, Henritty, Handratty, Handrathy, Hanrathy, Henrighty, Hanretty, Nauratty.
