54305 Everett James - 18 March 1841 Sydney Australasian Chronicle
 
EXECUTION.-On Tuesday morning the six bushrangers, James Everett, Robert Chitty, John Marshall, Richard Glanville, John Shea, and Edward Davies, who were convicted at the last criminal sittings of the wilful murder of John Graham, at Scone, on the 21st December last, all paid the forfeit of their lives by expiating their offences on the scaffold. An immense crowd was collected to witness the last awful scene of these men’s career, as they had been long notorious for the many burglaries which they had committed in various parts of the interior, but chiefly in the Hunter's River district. At a few minutes past nine o’clock the wretched men were conducted from their cells to the area in front of the drop, where they knelt for some time in the exercise of their devotions. Chitty, Everett, Marshall, and Glanville, were attended by the Rev. Mr. Cowper and the Rev. John Elder; Shea by the Very Rev. Air. Murphy ; and Davies, being of the Jewish persuasion, was attended by Mr. Isaacs, the Jewish Rabbi. They all appeared to be deeply impressed with a full sense of their awful situation, and paid the greatest attention to the instruction and prayers of their spiritual attendants. After about ten minutes spent in devotion they arose, and Everett in a very hurried manner ran up the steps leading to the scaffold, and was followed by Chitty, Glanville, and Marshall; they all four in a loud and clear voice sung the first verse of the hymn commencing ‘Awake my soul, and with the sun.’ Shea was the next to ascend, and Davies, who was dressed in a suit of mourning, was the last to ascend; he cast his eye with a keen penetrating glance upon the crowd assembled in the gaol yard as if to recognise any acquaintance, and then with a firm step mounted the ladder. A few minutes more were spent in devotion, and then the ropes were adjusted and the caps drawn over their faces; they still continued (particularly Everett and Glanville) in loud and apparently fervent prayer till the bolt was drawn, and they were launched into the presence of their Maker. They all died almost without a struggle. They had long been a terror to the inhabitants in the district of the Hunter, and it is to be hoped that awful example which has been made of them will deter others from the pursuing such law

54220 Everett (Ruggy) James Mangles 1833 25 February 1841 - Australasian Chronicle
 
Elizabeth Chivers, wife of John Chivers, publican of Scone, remembered seeing some men go to Mr. Dangar's house on the morning of the 21st of December; she heard the noise of horses feet, and on looking out of the window sill observed three men, having the appearance of gentlemen, who rode up to Mr. Dangar's gates, and one of them dismounted and went in ; one of them had a light coloured ribbon in his hat, and she thought on that account they were bushrangers; she turned round to go out of the room to see if they were bushrangers, but as she was going towards the door a man came and said, " Well, mistress, what have you got fo r us?" Witness asked him what lie wanted, and he said money, and he knew that she had plenty, and he must have it; Glanville was the man. 'This witness also identified Marshall and Everett, and said she believed Davies was also there on looking at him again she said she was sure that he was the man who was standing at the bar door with ribbons in his hat. Glanville was armed with two guns, and several pistols in his belt. The witness then sat down, and Glanville told her to get up and give him the money, as lie had not long to stop; she then gave him the cash box out of the bedroom window ; there was in it about thirty .LI notes, two £10 notes, half a sovereign, and about £20 in silver; there were also some orders, but lie said they were of no use to him, but lie took the money and went round the place to see if lie could find any fire-arms; he then called Ruggy, and the prisoner Everett came and asked what was in the cash box, and witness told him that the other man had taken it all. Everett then went towards the mantelpiece and took two bullet moulds, and a gun from the fire-place.
