I know nothing at all about his parents (just their names as given on the death certificate) or other siblings.  There has never been any suggestion that any others of his immediate family emigrated.

I've often wondered if this fellow is a younger brother - has the same parent names and come from Tipperary.

You could well be right so I've started a new thread to see if anyone can shed any light on this Patrick.
https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=804793.new#new

I've had a cursory look for Patrick and his family but there's not much visible.  He's certainly living in the same area as Michael and has the same parent names.  Trove doesn't seem to have any mention of his death.


The only Victorian BMD entry.other than the death which you quoted, I could find (quickly!) was a birth for the son.

Victoria 1848 #41933
DWYER, Matthew
Parents: Patrick DWYER Patrick, Anne (Lynche)

I am not seeing any other registrations, cannot even be sure of the death reg's for the children, or for Ann; no marriage registration which is a shame. Victorian BMD index doesn't show the place of registration which could help!

His will leaves all to Ann for her lifetime and then to go to the three sons, with no mention of Mary Ann.

There are some DWYER burials at Rushworth, but frustratingly the dates don't seem to be included although the ones in the same grave are obviously this family, and possibly John is their son

Hi  :)
Do you have records for where and when Micheal's children where born?  I wonder if they might have been born in Tasmania? 
Maybe (if kids where born in Tas) the family went from Tas to Victoria rather than back to Ireland and then back to Australia again. 
Have you tried Trove for him leaving Tasmania?  Might be worth checking around 1841...
Hope this is a help and not a nuisance  :)

Michael Dwyer, water carrier, assault case in 1848.  Says he's elderly and of Lonsdale Street, Melbourne.
