Further InformationThe Resident Magistrate wrote to the Colonial Secretary on August 15th 1876 requesting relief for Mrs Rudd as she was a deserving woman and suffering from rheumatism and unable to work to support herself- relief she was denied as she had two daughter living at home who took in washing earning one pound per month who should be able to support her. A second request was made on 21 September 1876 as her health had deteriorated and the girls were out at service. It was suggested she enter the poor house or to allow her five shilling a week and the girls to help support her
A Bridget Rudd died aged 64 in 1879 making her year of birth 1815 which does not coincide with that on the 1861 census (1823).
