Hello - Received the marriage papers (June 1871) of Ellen Hennessey and William Matheson. For purpose of clarity, this is #3 Ellen, b. 1850, Ireland.
Her mother is Ellen (or Helen) Walsh. Ellen #2

Here are the census details for household 64 Sydney Mines 1871:

Ellen Hennessey - age 52 - b. 1819 Ireland - status - married
John Hennessey ----- 23 -----1848-Ireland ---miner
Ellen Hennessey ----- 21 -----1850-Ireland
Thomas Hennessey ---- 19 -----1852-Ireland?
James Hennessey -----16 -----1855-Ireland?
Ellen Walsh ----------85 -----1786-Newfoundland

Spouse of Ellen #2 b. 1819 Timothy Hennessey, is missing.

Ellen #1, 85 years old, could have left Newfoundland and traveled back to Ireland, married and had several children before retuning to Canada & settling in Cape Breton.
