Details:Susan Grey per Broxbornebury and Sarah Freeman per Janus, both in service of government, charged with frequent drunkenness and disorderly conduct and for harbouring and receiving prisoners and other improper characters at their residence at unseasonable hours. The Chief Constable states...the prisoners have frequently come under my notice for some months past for keeping a disorderly house and for harbouring some of the most suspicious characters resorting to Newcastle. These women are in the constant habit of getting drunk and encouraging depredation and I have strong reason to justify that the linen lately stolen from Government House was taken by their connivance if not by their assistance. They are both very bad characters......Samuel Whitney per Glatton, in the service of government charged with having property in his possession knowing it to have been stolen and for frequent drunkenness and disorderly conduct. The Chief Constable states....The prisoner is a very disorderly character, he comes frequently under my notice in a state of intoxication. I searched his box this morning and found a pair of soldiers trousers but I believe he bought them tho it is contrary to orders to purchase anything from the military. I dont think the trousers were stolen. The three prisoners made no defence......Susan Grey, Sarah Freeman and Samuel Whitney were sentenced to Moreton Bay

Details:John Bradley, a constable, and James Wright, Susan Grey and Sarah Freeman in government service all charged with street robbery...John Cadman, Master of the government cutter Mars...last night a little before nine oclock I left Mr. Beatties house on the hill and went to that adjoining. I had been drinking. I followed a woman to the house. I think it was Susan Grey. I had not any previous acquaintance with her. At the house there was another woman (Sarah Freeman). I believe I had some refreshment with them. Shortly after one of them called me outside the house and on my going out a blanket was thrown over my head and I was shift of everything I had on. My watch was also taken from me and about two dollars. I do not know the persons of the men who robbed m. there were at least two of them. I fell in the struggle and I believe lay on the ground a considerable time. The Chief Constable states...last night near midnight, I was going my rounds and found the preceding witness in the street entirely stript of his clothes. He told me he had been robbed and pointed out the house he had come from when he was attacked. The house was nearly opposite where I had found him. I entered the house, I found Susan Grey there, she was intoxicated; Cadman was also intoxicated but was able to tell me in very distinct terms of the robbery. I afterwards found John Bradley in the street after I had left him in the watch house lying on the bed. It was his duty as constable to have been at the watch house. Near the house I found a jacket and that belonging to Cadman. From the whole of Bradleys conduct last night I had a strong suspicion that he was concerned in the outrage. I told him so this morning at the watch house. He and Hogan ( a constable) left the watch house for the purpose of searching for the watch which was not yet forthcoming. They went towards the house where Cadman had been the night before in a short time they returned bringing with them Cadmans watch. James Hogan a constable states - I went with the consent of the chief constable to seek for Cadmans watch. Bradley accompanied me. We went towards the house on the Hill inhabited by Sarah Freeman and Susan Grey on approaching the house I got into a sort of small gully and proceeding along it I turned up the sand with my foot and at last I found the watch which was given to the chief constable. John Mentzlaer stated - I lodge in the skilling of a cottage belonging to Mrs. Pennington an inhabited by Sarah Freeman and Susan Grey and I believe also James Wright lodges in the house. Bradley also was often there. Last night I saw Cadman come to the house. He stayed there a short time, Susan Gray came out of the house and he followed her. I was peeping through the door and could plainly see what was going on, as soon as Cadman came out two men laid hold of hi and Susan Grey went away; the two men who laid hold of him are Wright and Bradley. I know them well. I have known them at Newcastle for upwards of four years. Bradley longer; Wright threw a blanket over Cadmans head and Bradley robbed him; I can swear that Bradley and Wright are the persons who robbed Cadman last night. I did not dare to interfere at the time of the robbery. Wright is a powerful man and between him and Bradley my life would have been in danger, but I considered it my duty to relate what I have here stated to the Chief Constable. Prisoners remanded to be tried at Quarter Sessions. No evidence appearing against Sarah Freeman she is ordered to be discharged. John Bradley dismissed from his situation of constable. - later sent to Port Macquarie for 2 years.
