John McGrath was 24 years old on arrival, he was the brother of Darby McGrath (Royal Sovereign 1834).

John was single.

1844: TOL Windsor
11/2/1845: TOL Passport, Windsor Bench
10/8/1850: CP

1854: Married Mary Pacey, daughter of Patrick Pacey (also on the Waverley).  They had no children.

John was sent up to Brisbane and his brother Darby followed him there later.  Darby, John and Patrick Pacey all became wealthy by buying land around Brisbane, also hotels and shops.

Have not pinpointed John’s death date, but his wife Mary sold land that John had owned to his brother Darby.
