"She could be Margaret Armstrong aged 24 came Aug 1855 on the 'Maria Hay' as Assisted British Immigrant."

If it is this one, the image has Fermanagh, Dom Serv't, C of E.

Just found this.

I am looking for the link between the Allingham and Armstrong families, as I am tracing the family tree of Margaret Allingham Armstrong born in Fermanagh on 9.8.1832/ 33 Can anyone help with identifying her parents and/or her brothers/sisters. Margaret married William Henderson Maxwell in Melbourne Australia, 7 May 1857 She died 25 Sept 1915 in Bendigo, Australia
