Lucy Gray (née Waters) (1840-1879) grew up in the small Irish town of Birr, at a time when increasing famine was causing death and disease throughout the land. Her father, a doctor, succumbed to cholera when Lucy was just sixteen. At twenty-two, partly inspired by Evangelicalism and a desire to convert others, but also with a genuine longing for adventure, she travelled to New Zealand. There, she worked as a governess for several years. After a brief stay in Sydney during the hot summer months of 1865-66 she returned to England, vowing to never again live in Australia. However, within two years she had married and settled with her husband on a remote cattle station in outback Queensland.
