Subject: Appleby family from Ireland 1800's

I am trying to trace any Appleby's from Ireland. Specifically Julia Appleby who was an orphan sent as a free settler to Tasmania,Australia on the Calcutta in 1851. She was listed on the ship's passenger list as 17 years but there is some evidence that she was only 14 years old. Julia was born between 1834 and 1837 possibly in Cork.to qualify for this voyage the girls had to be orphans and most came from poor houses or work houses. Julia may have left from Cork and there is some evidence that she was born in Cork but she could have come from anywhere in Ireland. Her parents may have died in the famine.
Julia worked for a Rev Dr Lillie in Hobart until her marriage at SDpring Bay,Tasmania in 1855 to Edmund Ryan a convict from Thurles, Tipperary. Due to his drinking the marriage did not last but they did have 6 to 8 children.No records of what happened to Julia seem to exist.Any possible leads would be welcome.
