There were 3 Patrick McNamara’s on this voyage.

1823 Convict Indent:
Patrick McNamara, Age 40, 5’9”, impediment in speech, Tolerable behaviour on ship.  Assigned to Vicars Jacob on arrival.

Ploughs and shears sheep.  Native place: Castlebar – tried 6/8/1822 at County Mayo.

From a letter from Vicars Jacob who had 20 assigned convicts, some from the Isabella 1823.
28/10/1824 Sydney Gazette:

“To Major Goulburn, Colonial
Secretary,  New South Wales. 
” SIR,- I send two helpless men, Patrick M’Namara and Patrick Gready, prisoners per Isabella, whom I hope you will order into Government protection, as they are not by any means adapted to farming purposes, and of minds so imbecile, and habits so inhuman, as to render improvement hopeless.

1834: TOL Campbelltown.

There is a death on the Convict Death Register for a Patrick McNamara who died 11/9/1838 at the Hassam Walls Stockade - he was on the Isabella 1823 but I have no way of knowing if it was this Patrick or the one who was tried at Cork.
