She was born circa 1843 at New South Wales.1 She was the daughter of Thomas Horsnell and Martha Goddard.1

Her father died 10 December 1856.1

By January 1857 the Horsnell family was in desperate circumstances and an appeal was made for charity in January 1857:
"TO THE BENEVOLENT.
THE attention of the benevolent Public is solicited to the case of Mrs. Horsnell, widow of the late Thomas Horsnell, of the Long Swamp, near Mulgunnia who was recently killed by a fall from horse, leaving his wife and seven children almost in a state of complete destitution.
Donations will be thankfully received at Carcoar by the Rev. H. Tingcombe, E. J. C. North, N. Connolly, and B. Stimpson, and by W. Farrand, Esq. Free Press Office, Bathurst."2


In 1906 the surviving Hosnell siblings posed for a photograph.3
