Patrick Daly, the son of Peter Daly, married Jane Fahy, the

Patrick and Jane along with their four oldest children, Mary,
Ellen, Daniel and Patrick, sailed to Australia in 1836 on the
Lady McNaughten. The ship was put in quarantine upon arrival due
to illness aboard. Daniel died while in quarantine from severe
malnutrition and Patrick was sickly but recovered. The family
settled in Maitland where their last four children, Anne,
Margaret, John and Catherine were born.
