Patrick John (Pat) Kennelly (1900-1981), Australian Labor Party official and politician, was born on 3 June 1900 at Northcote, Melbourne, fifth child of Moyvane born parents John Kennelly, warder, and his wife Mary, née O’Dea. Educated at St Joseph’s School, Northcote, and St Patrick’s College, East Melbourne, Pat set his life’s course from an early age: at 15 he joined the Australian Labor Party. When he commenced work he joined the Federated Clerks’ Union of Australia and by 19 he was secretary of the Northcote branch of the ALP, where he began a lifelong association with John Cain. While working at the Yallourn open-cut mine in 1925 he coached the local football team, foreshadowing an enduring association with Australian Rules football, which included the Port Melbourne and Richmond clubs.
Patrick Edward Cussen (1792-1849), medical practitioner, was born in Ireland but, like many other Irishmen of the period, he obtained his medical education at Edinburgh University (M.D., 1820). He and his wife, the widow of Dr Griffin of Limerick, arrived in Sydney in the Majestic from Liverpool via Hobart Town in August 1837. Within a month Cussen had been appointed assistant surgeon for the settlement at Port Phillip, at a salary of 7s. 6d. a day with £50 a year lodging allowance, in succession to Drs Alexander Thomson and Barry Cotter.
