Details: Donald (Daniel) Deacon per ship John, assigned to Donald McIntyre, charged with having stolen property in his possession. John Connelly of the Mounted Police states - I was informed that Mr. Buttons place had been robbed and that amongst other articles a cheese had been taken. I went to the hut where the prisoner and another man resides and in searching in a bed which was rolled up I found some cheese. I left it there and enquired at the overseer whether any of the servants had had cheese issued to them lately. He said they had not and we went together to the hut and after some conversation with one of the men who resides in the same hut; he stated that the prisoner had got the cheese from one of Mr. Dangars men for a hat. He Thomas Smith per ship Captain Cook admitted after having denied that a man had slept in his hut one night that week but did not know who he was. Mr. Button states - On Tuesday night last the dairy man came and told me that the dairy had been robbed. I went and found that a sheet or bark had been pulled down and many things taken away, the property of the dairyman - and a cheese, the property of Mr. Dangar. No cheese has been issued to the servants this season on the farm. The cheese now produced is that which was found in the prisoners hut and from its appearance I should suppose it had been a very short time cut and is altogether a new cheese. James Price, free, states that he is dairyman to Mr. Dangar. I bought a hat some time ago from the prisoner and gave him four shillings and six pence in money for it and never at any time gave him any cheese. I got eighteen pence from Mr. Button for this purpose of making up the money to pay for the said hat. I told Mr. Button at the time why I wanted the money...Mr. Button being called - Price did get from him eighteen pence at the time that it was to pay for a hat. This was about four weeks ago. The prisoner states in defence that the cheese found in the bed was a part of some that he received from Mr. Dangars servant Price in part payment for a hat. The Bench find the prisoner guilty and sentence him to 35 lashes.

Source: Historical Records of Australia. Depositions at inquiry taken at Merton Court House re collision between mounted police under J.W. Nunn and aborigines that took place in 1837
Details: Corporal Patrick Hannan of the Mounted Police, being duly sworn, deposed - I belonged to the party that went out with Major Nunn to the Gwyder and Namoi Rivers in the beginning of last year. After leaving Mr. Marshall s station, we met with four blacks, who undertook to lead us to the tribe that murdered Mr. Cobb s men. About two days after we came upon them near a Creek, I rode through the scrub and attempted to apprehend the first black man I saw , when I came near before I could take hold of him, he turned suddenly round and thrust a spear through the calf of my leg. I was quite close to him at the time. I turned round and saw Serjeant Lee coming up. I called to him that I was speared. I heard a shot immediately after, but the pain of my wound was so great that I cannot speak of any thing that occurred. My horse sprang on one side when I received the wound, and the spear was hanging from my leg, it must have been seen by the other men. I saw that the black who wounded me had another spear. I could easily have shot him before he wounded me, but I wanted to capture him as our orders from Major Nunn were to take prisoners, but not to fire unless in self defence. I saw Major Nunn very soon after I was speared, he assisted me in getting the spear out of the wound. I heard firing after, which appeared retiring from me, as if the men were in pursuit. I am certain no shot was fired before I was speared.

Details: Depositions taken in July 1839 at inquiry re collision between mounted police under J. W. Nunn and aborigines Deposition of Serjeant John Lee - In all our previous communications with the blacks, Major Nunn had been extremely kind to them. I was senior serjeant of the party and the orders I received from Major Nunn and gave to the detachment, were that they were not in any case to fire upon the blacks, unless it was necessary for their own defence. This was a standing order with the party. There was no remission of the pursuit from the time the firing began until it ceased altogether. We followed them about a mile and a half from where it began. Two iron bolts and a tin dish were found in the blacks s camp, which I heard Lamb say were taken from Mr. Cobb s station when the men were murdered. The black boy Jacky our interpreter told me the Guides, who were with us, undertook to lead us to the tribe that murdered Mr. Cobb s men. - John Lee x his mark. Sworn before Magistrates at Merton, this fourth day of April, 1839.Edward Denny Day William Ogilvie and John Pike
