Who was Mary Elizabeth QUILTY - born 1851 Adelaide, South Australia *UPDATE

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.

John was born in Wellington 28th February 1852, the first of 15 children to George Lynch Darby Goldfinch and Mary Futter.

John and Mary had 7 children:

Alice Theresa Goldfinch b.1876 Wellington - d.1960 Lower Hutt
Arthur Lunch Goldfield b.1877 Wellington - d.1969 Lower Hutt
Olive Goldfinch b.1879 Wellington - d.1896 Island Bay
Percy John Goldfinch b.1881 Wellington d.1969 Epsom, Auckland
Eva Goldfinch b.1884 Wellington - d.1963 Wellington
Leslie (Bob) Goldfinch b.1882 Wellington - d.1882 Wellington
Nellie Goldfinch b.1886 Wellington - d.1886 Wellington

John Mathew Goldfinch died 1895 aged 42 and is buried in Bolton St Cemetery.
Mary Elizabeth Quilty died 1933 aged 82 and is buried with John

Quilty possibly originated in Ireland - Mary was born in Adelaide, South Australia in 1851.
Do you know who her parents were?
When they emigrated to Australia?
Her siblings?
How she got to New Zealand?

*Found a passenger list of the JOSEPH ROWAN which left Liverool 21st March 1854, arriving in Port Adelaide, South Australia 16th June 1854.
Amongst the passengers was a Robert Quilty with wife Biddy, 3 year old Mary and infant daughter Anty.
This Mary's birth year matches 'our' Mary - is it her?

Looking for passenger list of the 'STEADFAST' to NSW, Australia 1849

I would like the passenger list for the 'STEADFAST' which sailed from Plymouth, England on 24th November 1848, arriving N.S.W. Australia on 26th March 1849.

Looking for George Lynch Darby Goldfield who was on board and possibly his brother Thomas Barber Goldfinch.

George then moved to New Zealand - would also like to know which ship he sailed in to NZ - I THINK it may have been the EMPEROR (of China)??

Arthur John & Louis James STENT - Feilding, New Zealand

I have found 2 STENT boys who were sons of a James Stent.

I have a JAMES STENT on the Peck tree but he is obviosuly not their father as Arthur and Louis enlisted in 1902 for the Boer War - too old to be his children.
So who were they - I am sure they were related and belong somewhere on the tree.

- there was a Louis James Stent who served in the Anglo-Boer War Serial Number 5248 and also a Louis James Stent who served in WWI in 1916, Serial Number 12/3835 as a Lance Corporal. Was it the same James? He had a wife in Opotiki by then only listed as Mrs E.I. Stent.

They were of the same area in Manawtau, New Zealand as the other Stents.
They enlisted on the same day into the same contingent, their ID numbers follow each other etc etc

"For most conspicuous bravery at Lone Pine trenches, in the Gallipoli Peninsula. On the morning of the 9th Aug., 1915, with a very small party, Capt. Shout charged down trenches strongly occupied by the enemy, and personally threw four bombs among them, killing eight and routing the remainder. In the afternoon of the same day, from the position gained in the morning, he captured a further length of trench under similar conditions, and continued personally to bomb the enemy at close range under very heavy fire until he was severely wounded, losing his right hand and left eye. This most gallant officer has since succumbed to his injuries."
