Amy (Elizabeth) Hawkins
Amy Hawkins lived at No 1 Oroton Terrace, Hackney. Amy apparently had an argument with her two sisters in England when she was about 18 years old and she decided to come to Australia. Hawkins, Amy arrived in Hobart on the ship Oriental on 25 Jul 1857 at an Age of 20 (Tasmanian Archives, Reference CB7/12/1/7 p300). She worked as a cook assistant and apparently used to throw out all the old mildewed meat, much to her boss' distress. While working at Oakland, she met William Calway(Jones) who was still serving out his time as a convict working in the garden. They became friendly and married once he was a free man.
Amy married William Calway on 12 May 1859 in Hobart Tas. (William Calway was born in 1805 in England and died on 19 Jan 1893 in Hobart, Tas.)
