About Catherine O'Dwyer (Norcott)
From Counsel for the Defense by Paul O'Dwyer (Simon & Schuster 1979) at page 15: "My paternal grandmother's name was Catherine Norcott. Later, when I asked my sister Katty about it, she volunteered the information that old man Norcott was a planter and a judge and had delivered the most severe sentences to the Irish accused who came before him. When his daughter Catherine married John O'Dwyer she was cast out of the family. She had little choice but, as Shaw obsered, influenced by the weather, to become more Irish than the Irish themselves."
