Biographical notes: Hannah McKinna, domestic, is listed as arriving into Adelaide on the immigrant ship Rodney from London on 8 December 1877. Hannah married Cornelius Doyle on 13 November 1879 in Adelaide. The 1891 census of the Northern Territory listed both Hannah and her husband Cornelius, Hannah listing her birthplace as Ireland. Cornelius worked for South Australian Railways, undertaking a position of Railway District Inspector. Hannah and Cornelius had two surviving children in the Northern Territory – Kathleen Francis born 29 June 1893 and Bartha Augustine born 2 September 1895. In 1895 when Hannah was 38, she was one of the 82 women who enrolled to vote after the franchise was granted to South Australian and Territory women in 1894. Her occupation was listed as "matron", although it is unclear if her profession was nursing, or if this position referred to her marital status. Hannah was taken off the Roll in the 1898 revision because the family left Palmerston to return to South Australia.
