Biography

MIgrated from Ramsgate Kent UK in 1852

Occupation: Brickmaker

Residence: West Thebarton and Norwood

Religion: Methodist

&nbsp

In April 1853, Daniel BRICE, his wife Ann, and five children arrived on the ship "Marshall Bennett" from Kent, England. The family first settled in the Yankalilla district, where Daniel contracted to burn 500,000 bricks for Robert Norman to build the town of Normanville. Some of the bricks were used and the rest left lying about, and anyone who wanted some just helped themselves.

Daniel was licensee of the Normanville Hotel for a short time in 1857, and for a period tended the vines on Robert Norman's property nearby.

The eldest daughter Elizabeth BRICE married local storkeeper, Alexander SMITH, in 1860. Another daughter Mary Jane born at Normanville in 1857, later became Mrs, William STRAPPS and resided at Henley Beach. Later Daniel and his family moved to Thebarton where he worked as a senior brickmaker in a nearby kiln.

Above is from a single photcopied page from an unknown Biographical book based on Normanville, Yankallia residents..

&nbsp

Note that there is another contradictory source which shows Daniel setting up in Norwood prior to moving to Normanville for the brick contract.
