Earl Grey's Daughters : the women who changed Australia
Between 1848 and 1850, over four thousand orphaned girls arrived in Australia under the Earl Grey Scheme. They were refugees from a Gorta Mor, the Great Famine, in Ireland. Earl Grey’s daughters, the women who changed Australia, tells the story of one of these girls. Who was she? Why did she and the others make the perilous voyage to the far side of the world? What happened to them in their new land? Did they make a difference?
