Hannah Amilia O'Maley was born about 1812. She married her first husband on December 16, 1827, in Lambeth, Middlesex. On February 28, 1853.

Hannah was bringing up her seven children alone, after her husband deserted the family(believed to have fled to America with another woman). August 1846 in London she was sentenced to seven years’ transportation for receiving stolen goods. Accompanied by her five youngest children, she arrived in Hobart in 1847. The children were sent to the Queen’s Orphan Schools and Hannah underwent six months’ training in domestic duties on the Anson. She was then assigned to work for private individuals. However for being absent without leave, drunk and assaulting a constable, she served three sentences of hard labour at the Cascades Female Factory, totalling 15 months. In 1850 she obtained a ticket of leave, but in 1852 served another six months’ hard labour at the Cascades for being drunk and using indecent language.
In 1853 Hannah married again and gradually the children were released to her care. However, the marriage was not to last and several tragic family deaths occurred. In her sixties Hannah was admitted to the New Town Pauper Establishment; in 1883 she was released to the care of a daughter. Hannah Amilia O’Maley died 24 July 1884 of Senilis at the Newtown pauper establishment aged 72.
Life had certainly tested her over the years.
