#rosesfromtheheart#bonnets#transportedwomen#tribute#tasmanianartist#convictwomen Lovely to catch up with Helen and her husband today. Helen from New South Wales presented me with her bonnet tribute for her very own great, great, great grandmother Mary Ready/Reddy/Reidy transported aboard the Lord Wellington that sailed from Cork, Ireland in May 1819, arriving in New South Wales in January 1820. Thanks for the attached information and lovely photo of Mary.
