Descendants at the Female Factory.

In the over twelve years we have been telling a convict woman’s story (first Louisa Ragan and now, Mary James) we have met many descendants of those early convict women.

Today, we had the pleasure of taking Jan Hutchings  (nee Cato) on Her Story.  William and Elizabeth Cato were a Supervisor and Assistant Matron back in 1831.

Jan found Her Story extremely moving and will encourage other members of her family to come and visit the Cascades Female Factory.

Do you have a female convict ancestor  or connection with this World Heritage Site?
