Maternal Family

Peter "Patrick" Carey & Laurestina Carey nee Maria (Poizette, Antat, Whitty, Rosman).

Patrick was born in Port Louis in Mauritius in 1832 on 23rd February. His father was Michael Carey who was employed as a surveyor of roads in Mauritius. Laurestina was also born in Mauritius in 1832 and both of their family history is being investigated by our various dedicated family historians. We hope more information comes to light soon. Patrick and Laurestina left Mauritus on a sailing ship called "Australia" and arrived in Port Phillip Bay in 1853. The ship's register reads Mr Carey, Lady and infant as paid passengers. The infant they were travelling with was Albertina Virginia Carey. They soon set out for Ballarat gold fields. They would stay in this region until in the early 1870's. Patrick was a miner but later worked as a carpenter. Laurestina passed away on 20th August 1891 from heart and renal disease and was interred into the Drysdale cemetery the following day. Patrick went onto win a contract to build the Fire Station in Walhalla in 1901 and was paid 155 pounds for the contract. On a subsequent visit to Walhalla in 1905 after William's death he was visiting the Hider residence and took ill. He died from malignancy of the stomach and syncope on 19th March 1905 and was interred in the heritage listed Walhalla Cemetery on 20th March 1905.
