    Have you traced her through the censuses, though? I didn't know whether there was consensus on where she was supposed to have been born, but the one who was born in Cowcross Street looks a fairly good match on the age, marital status and occupation. I know over on Casebook that there's a listing for her in Bethnal Green Workhouse for 1891, who's again a good match with the details gleaned from the infirmary records.

    Number 8 was the brothel, whilst the Connellys lived at no. 12. Just proving that there was one nearby.
    The 1911 one you posted is a possible. The age is out by 5 years from the Whitechapel Infirmary Mary Connolly but that doesn't necessarily rule her out.

    The Bethnal Green Mary Connolly was living at 5 Old Nicholls Street in 1891 according to the Bethnal Green creed registers.

      I just checked my old casebook post about this:
      [QUOTE]The Bethnal Green Creed register for 23rd March 1891 shows this* Mary A Connelly being admitted- b 1853, a Roman Catholic living a 5 Old Nicholls St. and discharged 1st May 1891[/QUOTE

      * The one listed in the 1891 census at Bethnal Green sick asylum and posted by Sally.
