Summary
Eighteen-year-old Frances Tiernan defiantly declared she would not stand at the wash tub unless she could wear her patent leather shoes. In that distant colony of men, what was still needed by 1848 were domestic servants and wives. Where better to fill this tall order that Famine ravaged Ireland? Under the Earl Grey immigration scheme, 4000 teenaged girls came from the Irish Poor Law workhouses. It seemed like a great idea - at once fill the need in New South Wales and relieve the overcrowded workhouses. But what were children doing in the workhouses in the first place? How were the ‘best' girls chosen and by whom? What sort of reception did they get in the colonies? Frances was one of 185 girls who reached that remote inland town of Bathurst. Why Bathurst? What did Bathurst have to offer? Did they stay there? If not, where did they end up?
