In the colony, Patrick formed a relationship with Elizabeth Budden (Came Free, Pitt, 1792). Elizabeth had come with her de-facto partner, Richard Tuckwell (NSW Corps, Pitt, 1792). She had several children, fathered by Richard, up to about 1805. At which point, it would appear she commenced a relationship with Patrick.
Patrick and Elizabeth were eventually married January 29th 1810. They had two children, Catherine 1810 and Thomas 1812.
