Patrick Grace – born in Co. Wicklow, aged 20, labourer, (an 1825 muster shows him as a general servant to Mr Smithers in Sydney). He got his Certificate of Freedom on April 7 1829. In Sydney, he married Mary Ann Hughes nee Dwyer, a widow, eldest daughter of Michael Dwyer of 1798 and Glen of Imaal fame.(Michael Dwyer had held out in the Wicklow Mountains until late 1803 when he agreed to surrender with guaranteed safe passage to America. The British government reneged on this agreement and held Dwyer in Kilmainham Gaol for two years before exiling him and his young family to Australia.) Patrick Grace had 3 children with Mary Ann and died in 1872 at Shea-Oak Log near Adelaide in South Australia where he had lived as a farmer.
