Patrick was the son of my Great Grandmother Ellen Nolan, who was a convict transported in 1853 on the Midlothian. Patrick was born on board. Records say Ellen was a widow at the time of her conviction. She was a housemaid and married my great grandfather James Smith at Clarence Plains in 1854. They went on to have 8 children one of whom my grandfather moved to Moogara where he lived for the rest of his life. I have not yet found any record of either Ellen or James lives or deaths.
