It was in 1841 that he came to the Australian colonies on the transport Richard Webb. On July 13, 1846 a serious altercation occurred between Roman Catholic and Protestant Irishmen outside the Pastoral Hotel in Melbourne necessitating the intervention of the military and the reading of the riot act by the mayor of the city. In October 1846 that Superintendent La Trobe acted to appoint additional mounted police and asked William Mair to take command of the unit.
