She was the oldest of eight children, born in colonial Melbourne to Scottish parents. Her childhood was difficult, her father a failure at every business he attempted. In the years before children were all sent to school, moderately wealthy families employed governesses. She worked as a governess in rural South Australia. There she met a charismatic priest and discovered her true vocation.
