Hi Dianne , extra to what Debra gave you, if you look for births on NSW BDM for children of Owen Donnelly ( inc Donelly , Donnely, Donnley etc) there are only 3, 1847 James, 1851 John and 1859 Peter , at Campbelltown. Mother given as Margaret for the three.
On the arrival of " William Sharples" 29/1/1842 Owen gives his parents as James and Anne (dec) and Margaret gives Peter Kelly or Kellidy and Anne (dec)
So of these three births , most likely at Campbelltown,James and Peter are there. As both of Owen and Margaret's mothers are Anne , it would have been likely to call a daughter Anne, they were Roman Catholics who could not read or write, so I would be looking for more variants of Donnelly, as I am sure they would have baptised her.
Another interesting thing is that Owen aged 24 had under his care Anne Kelly or Kellidy and Bridget English "under his care"
Cheers
