William Carroll was 29 years old when tried in Dublin in 1812, crime (not noted).

He worked for the Government at Parramatta from the time of his arrival and in 1814 was a mason labourer being victualled.

1,6/5/1820: Applied for Permission to Marry.

Seems he married Bridget, but I haven’t found which one.

4/1/1822: applied to the Government for victualling for himself, his wife their four children. Michael, William, Sarah and Roseanne, and a Government man.

William had a grant of 50 acres of land from Governor Macquarie, at Prospect. He had felled twenty acres and had fifteen acres under cultivation. He had also built a house on the land - his request was granted.

By 1828 Bridget Carroll lived on the land at Prospect with the two sons, Michael 16,, and William 12, both stated as born in the Colony, and was shown as the owner of the fifty acres of land which still had twenty acres cleared but only ten acres under cultivation.

The 1828 census showed William Carroll “Archduke Charles” was a pensioner at the Benevolent Asylum,  and he died there in 1837.
