Of the six workhouses in Kerry, four agreed to participate in the scheme: Listowel, Killarney, Kenmare, and Dingle. Tralee and Cahersiveen said no. There were up to applications from each of the four participating Kerry workhouses. In the end, 37 went from Listowel, 35 from Killarney, 25 from Kenmare and 20 from Dingle, all of which Caball discovered by going through the minutes. The girls who went were supposed to be orphans, but at least half of them were not.
Some girls were in the workhouse with their entire family. Circumstances had placed others there, to get shelter and two meals a day when their own family could no longer feed them. What people ate in the workhouse is recorded in the minute books of the era. Breakfast was a kind of stirabout porridge at 6am. Dinner was at noon, again a kind of oatmeal soup, occasionally with meat. If there was supper — mostly there was not — it was bread and milk at 6pm.
The Workhouse Girl by Dilly Court | Historical Fiction at The Works
The ships that went from Plymouth to Australia in the late s took four months to get there. The Irish girls aboard, with their boxes containing items they would never had had before, such as shoes and underclothing, frequently got sick from the food they ate. Half a pound of beef or pork a day after months or years of a diet of porridge was a shock to their digestive systems.
Once they got to Australia, it was all about survival. They were uneducated, untrained in service, and had very little experience of farm work. They lived in the bush or went to the goldmines. The names of those 4, girls are all recorded in the Irish famine memorial in Sydney, and there are various Australian databases and websites that carry information about them.
From the time Caball started working on her book, and accessing what records she could find online about what happened to the girls once they got to Australia, she has found herself inundated with queries from their ancestors there. There is one question common to all. Such is the demand for information from Australia that Caball has set up a website, Mykerryancestors. The Earl Grey Scheme ran for only two years, but it has left a lasting legacy at the other side of the world. For more information, visit mykerryancestors.
