Item: 178552
Surname: Scott
First Name: John
Ship: Indian 1810
Date: 6 June 1827
Place: Windsor
Source: SG
Details: WINDSOR. SATURDAY, MAY 5. John SCOTT, of the ship Indian, a prisoner for life, and who has been near 17 years in the Colony, charged that he had absconded from Parramatta station. This man is to be pitied ; he served some six or eight years with his last master ; how, in the name of reason, can a man be so stupid, as to run from his employment ? His calculations must be founded on a weak mind; he must now recommence his servitude. [A hint to all concerned.] The prisoner had little to say, he acknowledged his offence, and bore a sorrowful countenance. Ordered to be returned to Parramatta.
