By 1861 she appears to be wife of a John Kelly (bagman) with 3 children living in a multi occupancy building in Quayles lane a small lane of the North Quay near the Market Sq + noted as a fruit seller - by 1881 she has moved a short distance to Post Office lane , widow and described as a greengrocer - she is I think the Matilda buried age 57 as Matilda Gellen (any marriage would be post 1881 and in civil reg - there might be some account in Manx press (see www.imuseum.im)

It is her dau Matilda by John Kelly that is in the Manx community of iron miners etc in Arlecdon
