Ireland Native
Bridget (McNamara) Clayton was born in Ireland.

Bridget Helena MCNAMARA.[1]

1864 - Arrived in New South Wales on ship Robert Sale, with an Ellen McNamara (19). Immigration deposits were paid by Archibald Chisholm for Bridget and John O’Sullivan - perhaps a cousin.

1870 - Witnesses to Hyland marriage - Michael Hyland and Ellen McNamara (came on ship). Parents listed as John McNamara and Mary O’Sullivan.[2]

1874 - Witnesses to Clayton marriage Jno A Berry, Mary A McGarvey, Michael Hyland (ex father in law), Frances A Clayton (his mother).[3]

Her parents are listed as Michael and Ellen on the death certificate. Both marriage certificates state John McNamara and Mary O’Sullivan so presumably these names were given by Bridget herself.
