Patrick Collins was transported for ‘White Boy Rebel’ crimes. His occupation was a ‘Ploughman/Spadesman’.

Belfast Newsletter 14 June 1831  
Clare Special Commission - June 7

The following prisoners applied for leave to withdraw their plea of Not Guilty, and submit to a verdict of Guilty; John Keogh, for assault and endeavour to seize arms; Austin McInerney and John Lysaught, for assault and burglary. The Attorney General said it should be understood by the prisoners, that in these cases there would be no compromise of justice….John Costelloe, Maurice Molony, Patrick Hickey, Patrick Maguire, Thomas Curry, Patrick O’Brien, Peter Murphy, Thomas Qualy and Patrick Collins, were indicted for assaulting and demolishing the habitation of Charles Williams at Lisdeen, and administering to him an unlawful oath. - Verdict Guilty - The witness exclaimed twice or thrice during the trial, that he was so persecuted on account off Mr. O’Connell, during the last election, as the prisoners were tenants of O’Gorman Mahon, and himself being a Kerry man. The Attorney General prayed the immediate sentence of the court in those cases, and those of the day before. Judge Moore then passed sentence of transportation for life upon the prisoners 17 in all. They were removed from the dock forthwith, placed upon cars, and, guarded by a strong detachment of the Carbabiners and 76th Regiment, forwarded on their destination, followed by the cries of thousands of people in the streets. This makes an aggregate of 39 persons on their route for transportation up to this day.

1840: TOL Port Stephens.

27/3/1845: Application to Marry Eliza Logan aged 25, arrived free - Patrick listed as 34 years old.  Port Stephens.

1845: Married Eliza (he was at the AA Co., Stroud) - not sure how many children they had but since Patrick died in 1847, probably not many more.  There was another Patrick Collins who married an Eliza Dunn around the same time but he came free and was in the Wollongong/Woonona area.

Son Patrick J Collins was born in 1847 and married Mary Ann Fox in Newcastle in 1868.  He died in Granville in 1930:
