Although the records do not show Catherine as married when tried, it is probable that she was. She was aged 27 in 1813 at trial. She was from county Armagh. At some times she gave her name as Catherine Smith and at others Catherine McGuire. It is therefore possible that one of these names was her maiden name and the other a married name.

In the colony, quite soon after arrival, Catherine was living with Daniel McLeece (Convict, Somersetshire, 1814). Daniel also seems to have been fairly casual with the use of surnames and is often known as Daniel McGuinness.
Daniel and Catherine had 4 children between 1816 and 1823 (Rosannah, Jane, Patrick and John).
The relationship appears to have broken down around 1823 and Catherine was then living with Timothy Keefe (Convict, Guildford, 1816).
