Her time in Victoria indicates she arrived in Victoria at age about 23 in 1853.
(It appears she was living in the Township of Stayley, Parish of Mottram in Longden Dale, Cheshire in Shieffiels Rd in the 1941 census at age 9 with Thomas Chetham a butcher and his wife Mary and family. It indicates she was born in Cheshire, Eng. - Need to check this as age seems a bit low)
