out of 5

$20.00

Convict Patrick Moore arrived in Sydney aboard the horror ship Britannia in 1797. Over the next 54 years his story, and that of his wife’s Rose Green, would be one of hardship, and also reward.

Pat Moore’s Swamp is a booklet that traces their journey from Ireland to the lives they carved out in Sydney. They were among the first European families to live in and raise their children in Botany Bay.

Pat Moore’s Swamp: An Irish Family in Botany Bay includes both colour and monochrome maps of the land grants they received as well as illustrations depicting life in Sydney, including a drawing of the Moore family monument in Sydney.

Available as a printed booklet, it is 53 pages including references.
