Details: Case heard before John Bingle....Mary Hall, came free per Red Rover, engaged by Stephen Coxen Esq.,as a yearly servant, charged with neglect of duty and insolence. Mrs. Coxen states that last Monday afternoon I called the defendant from the hut. When she came in I desired her not to go to that hut again. She said she had business there and would go when she thought proper and she did not care what I should say to her, she was not going to stay more than two or three weeks. I told her she would have to remain her twelve months. She replied she would not stay for me or any one else. I told her she would find the difference when she saw the Magistrates. She replied she did not care any more for the Magistrates than she did for me. I told her she must go to court. She said she would not for me or Magistrates or anyone else. She then went off to the kitchen snapping her fingers at me saying she did not care for me or anyone else. She said I had been accustomed to factory women and that she would see me there before long. Her general conduct has been dreadfully bad.. Signed Sarah Coxen

Place: Invermein

Details: Mary Hall employed by Stephen Coxen charged with neglect of duty and insolence.....Stephen Coxen states that he engaged Mary Hall as a general servant on 23 September 1832, and hands into the court the receipt and agreement between him and Mary Hall in proof of her being his yearly servant. Stephen Coxen stated that on 22nd November las Mary Hall neglected her work and was for about twenty minutes at the barn with one of the prisoner servants which was against orders, that on Wednesday the following day she again went from her work and was about twenty minutes at the barn. I ordered her to go into the kitchen and in the evening Mrs. Coxen informed me she had been insolent to her. I asked her (Mary Hall) the reason she behaved in that manner to Mrs. Coxen, she bounced out at the door and then said who are you, I dont care for you, I am as good as you are. I shall do as I like. I shall talk to who I like and you ought to know how to keep servants before you hire them, for all that I have ever had time, I came to your house to eat is not worth anything. In continuance of her continuing in this abusive strain I (Stephen Coxen) shut the door and we then had silence. On the following morning I heard she again conducted herself in an improper manner towards Mrs. Coxen. I again remonstrated with her. She said she bid me defiance or the Magistrates. The Magistrates had no power over her and if the Governor only she looked he was the only person had any power over her. She was not hired to me by the year and she would leave me. She had only to give me a months notice and she would leave me. She would rather hang herself rather than stay and she would go and speak to any of the men she thought proper while she did stay.(She said) You have never been accustomed to any women but factory women. You want to put me in the Factory but you cant. I am as good as you and my word is as good as yours. Stephen Coxen states that.The reason I did not bring this charge before the Bench until this was from the stockkeeper interceding with me to let it stand over. As he thought she would behave better from what he said to her. She has been constantly in the habit of going to the huts contrary to orders. When she ought to have been at work.. Mary Hall states in her defence that she does not consider herself as hired for the year to Mr. Coxen, that she never went to the barn more than once but promises amendment. The Bench find Mary Hall guilty of neglect of work and insolence and mulct her wages one month to her master and to pay the expenses.
