Place: Liverpool Plains
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. p. 250
Details: Depositions dated 22 July 1839 taken before Edward Denny Day, Police Magistrate, and William Ogilvie and John Pike, Esquires, of the District of Merton, in an investigation ordered to be instituted into the circumstances attending the death of certain Aboriginal Natives in a collision with the Mounted Police under the command of Major Nunn. Major J. W. Nunn, Commandant of the Mounted Police, being duly sworn, deposed - About the 19th of December 1837, Colonel Snodgrass, the Acting Governor, sent for me to go to Government House. On arriving there I found Mr. Thomson, the Colonial Secretary, with Colonel Snodgrass. The substance of a report made by Mr. Paterson, the Commissioner of Crown Lands in the Liverpool Plains District was made known to me. A Copy of this report, which was given to me then or afterwards, I now produce. It contains a statement of murders and other outrages committed by the Blacks on the Namoi. Gwyder and Big Rivers. Colonel Snodgrass ordered me to proceed in consequence of that report to the scene of these outrages with a party of Mounted Police. I asked Colonel Snodgrass, if he had any orders or instructions to give me. He said, You must lose no time in proceeding, you are to act according to your own judgment, and use your utmost exertion to suppress these outrages. There are a thousand Blacks there, and, if they are not stopped, we may have them presently within the boundaries, or words to the same effect. In consequence of these instructions, I gave immediate orders to assemble a party at Jerrys Plains, from which place I proceeded on or about the 29th of the same Month, December, with a detachment, consisting of one Subaltern, two Serjeants and twenty troopers. I marched direct for the Namoi. On my arrival there, I heard very distressing accounts from the Stockmen in the neighbourhood of the out- rages committed by the Blacks

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.

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

Place: Razorback Mountains
Source: Sydney Gazette
Details: About ten o clock, on the night of the 30th ultimo, Sergt. Michael Doyle, and two troopers of the Mounted Police, fell in with a party of five armed bushrangers, at the foot of Razorback, and succeeded in apprehending them, The bushrangers are the same parties who escaped from the constables on the 25th ultimo, on the road between Berrima and Campbelltown. The police found in their possession the carbines which they took from the constables at the time of escape. They are now safely lodged in the gaol at Campbelltown. Their names are Francis McNamara, per Eliza ; John Jones, per Lady Macnaughton; Edward Allen, per Asia; William Thomson, per do; William Eastwood, per Patriot. The bravery and indefatigable zeal which Sergeant Doyle has at all times evinced in his pursuit of, and encounters with, bushrangers, strongly entitle him, not only to pecuniary remuneration from Government, but, in our opinion, to the consideration of his Commanding Officer of Mounted Police , Major Nunn
