Who was Mary Elizabeth QUILTY?? born in Adelaide, South Australia on 27th June 1851 - died in Welington, New Zealand on 25th Oct 1933.

She married John Mathew Goldfinch in Wellington New Zealand in June 1875.

Quilty possibly originated in Ireland - Mary was born in Adelaide, South Australia in 1851.
Do you know who her parents were?

Amongst the passengers was a Robert Quilty with wife Biddy, 3 year old Mary and infant daughter Anty.
