180584 Graves (Greaves) William Henry Tanner 1834 13 October 1835 Newcastle Newcastle Court of Petty Sessions, Bench Books, 1833-1836 (Ancestry)
James Kendall per Parmelia, Thomas Buckingham per Bengal Merchant, Daniel Dunn per Royal Admiral, William Graves per Henry Tanner all assigned to Alexander Walker Scott, charged with drunkenness and disorderly conduct......John Jones testified...After serving out the rations on Saturday last, I went to Perry the baker for some bread. At the same time I asked the prisoners if they were ready to go over. Dun said no he should stop and have some beer, the other men I did not notice at the time. I went up the street and when I returned to the wharf, Thomas Buckingham was swearing. He said he knew all about it. We then got into the boat. Buckingham was drunk and swore he could pull an oar as well as the best of them. He lost his own twice in the water. I told him if he could not pull better than that he had better pull in his own. He said go on my lads all that he (meaning myself) can do to me is to get me fifty. I returned back to put him in the watch house. I called Constable Anthony for that purpose but he would not come to my assistance. William Graves told me if he was searched no one would find anything on him for he would put it in the water. Buckingham was drunk. Dun and Graves were the worst for drink but their conduct was good. I know nothing respecting Kendall. I did not give the prisoners leave to go to a public house....Alexander Walker Scott testified....Last Saturday evening when Jones reported to me he had put one of my men in the watch house I went into my stables to enquire concerning it. I asked Kendall about some charge that he wished to make against my Overseer Jones. Graves the carpenter, having said publicly before several people that he knew my stores were robbed by the means of a hole and he said the blame of the robbery on Jones the overseer. From Kendalls manner I thought he had been drinking which he acknowledged by saying he had some beer. He told me he did not know how the men got the money to pay for the beer. Upon enquiry I learnt that the men had sent a little boy, a son of Perry the baker for the beer. I have had Graves and Kendall up for the offence of sending the boy after the beer and for speaking against the overseer in such a disrespectful manner....Thomas Johnstone testified....On Saturday last when Graves spoke to me he was tipsy. It was about four oclock in the afternoon....Malcolm Perry testified....I did not hear permission asked of Mr. Dun for the prisoners to get anything to drink. Mr. Jones and the men were about to leave the settlement at the time I was with him when I saw Dun....William Bennett testified....I did not hear Mr. Jones give permission for the prisoners to get beer. I did not hear Buckingham ask Mr. Jones to have a drink of the beer....Buckingham found guilty and sentenced to 50 lashes. The other prisoners admonished and discharged.
