+ In the "Census of NSW 1828" Patrick Byrne is aged 54, is "Free by Servitude", has 40 acres of land, 15 cleared. Has 2 cattle and 8 sheep. His occupation is "Constable". He is still a convict who had arrived on the "Rolla" in 1803 for a 7 year sentence. WSheppard 8.5.99

On Thursday arrived the Ship Rolla, Captain John Cummings, with prisoners of both sexes, viz. 119 men and 37 women: Seven of whom died on the passage; and the day after her arrival landed some of those who were weakly, at the general hospital. She left Ireland the 4th of November, arrived at Rio de Janeiro on the 15th of January, sailed from thence the 6th of February, and in 95 days after came to anchor in Port Jackson. During the latter part of the passage she experienced much bad weather; in the course of which, she [sprung???] her main-mast and carried away her main-yard. She brings, for the use of the Government, 234 Tierces of Pork, 686 casks of Flour, and 11 Tons of Sugar." This, and latter editions, make reference to the "Rolla" when goods are put up for sale. A latter edition of the paper lists the temperature in Sydney for the month of May. On the day the Rolla arrived it was foggy with winds from the west by north. Temperature 22 to 69 degrees F. WSheppard 12.6.99
+Transcribed "1814 NSW Muster" records "People Living in the Winsor District at this date": Patrick Burne (note spelling) Constable see Catherine Poer (note spelling). Is this the same Patrick who was made Constable in 1825? WSheppard 27.6.99
