George Seward Tracy with his wife, Maria Winter, and seven children, from King's County, Ireland. When his wife died in 1845 his occupation was listed as Constable. In 1847 he was appointed a Chief Constable of Police by the Governor. From 1847 I have been unable to find any trace of him, as yet I haven't located a death or burial. I have found deaths for all his children but one son William Winter Tracy. George Seward's occupation on one of his son's marriage certificates was listed as 'High Constable of the Barony'. This could be 'romantic' version of Chief Constable or I thought he may have returned to Ireland. Hope you may be able help me or point me in the right direction. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Hero?, Dunedin NZ to Melbourne, May 1865

Martin Tracey (former constable of Dunedin)

We stated a day or two ago that Martin Tracey, who was recently a constable at the Dunstan, had been stopped on hoard the Hero, which was about to leave for Melbourne, in consequence of L 750 in LIU notes, having been found in his possession; the suspicion being that the bulk of the money might have been the proceeds of the robbery of gold at the Dunstan Camp in November last. We understand that the statement we made as to the amount of money was erroneous; and that, although Tracey had a bank receipt for a large sum,, he has most satisfactorily explained its possession, :i3 the result of years of saving, and that there is not the shadow of a reason for attaching suspicion to him us regards the robbery. His detention is to be regretted, but we believe that lie will not be pecuniarily a loser therefrom.

Samuel Plimsoll from Plymouth England 1877

I am searching for descendants of Stephen Duffy, James Duffy, William Francis Duffy, Anne Tracy, Thomas Tracy, Margaret Hughes. they all came from Ireland in 1877 on the Ship 'Samuel Plimsoll' from Plymouth England. Children of James and Anne Tracy was William Duffy and Stephen Duffy. William Duffy married Margaret Hughes in 1908 in Sydney. They had 3 children. Twins were Anna Margaret and Mary Agnes Duffy born 1909. Dorothy Duffy 1912.  If anyone knows or think that might be related to these people it would be greatly appreciated if you would let me know thanks
