Boyle Robertson Patey was born circa 1829 in London, England, United Kingdom to Augustus Patey (bef1829-) and Rebecca Robertson (bef1829-) and died 12 June 1919 Northcote, Victoria, Australia of unspecified causes. He married Jane Small 18 September 1854 in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. He married Emma Elizabeth Weippert (1849-1939) 11 June 1866 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

A Hobart newspaper report in 1857 states that he “came to the colony as a prisoner of the Crown”. In otherwords he had arrived in Hobart, Tasmania as a convict.

He was made insolvent in Hobart in 1857.

He began a law practice and there are many references to him in the newspapers during his life-time.

His theatrical stage name was H.B.Wilton, and he authored the book "The Somatic Conjuror", an expose of the magic tricks of Robert Heller.

His convict history can be shown to match that of "John Patey" arriving in Tasmania in 1850 -

☀Hobart Courier June 23, 1857 BR Patey refers to having served 9 months in chains for misuse of records while working at the Police Office. This exactly matches the offence shown on John Patey's conduct record, https://libraries.tas.gov.au/archive-heritage/guides-records/Pages/census.aspx
