4143 Travers Patrick - 1842 5 February - HRG
EAST MAITLAND Patrick Travers and William O’Donnell, prisoners of the Crown, assigned to Beresford Hudson, were charged, the former with absconding from his master’s service, and the latter with harbouring him. The circumstances brought out in the evidence were the following : - William Dunn, a prisoner of the Crown assigned to Mr. Hazard, but employed by Mr. Hudson, reported to the latter gentleman that Travers was harboured by O’Donnell, and that he had heard them in the night of Tuesday last planning a robbery on the premises of a person residing on the Patterson; they accordingly went on the night in question for the purpose which they had concerted and returned a little before daybreak on Thursday morning. In the meantime Mr. Hazard, who had been informed of their absence, called frequently at the hut during the night to ascertain the period of their return, but without effect, until about daybreak, when on again visiting the premises he found the prisoners inside; Travers in the first instance gave himself up, but afterwards seized an opportunity and bolted into the bush. Mr. Hazard upon this discharged his musket and hit him in the arm; he escaped at the time however, but was subsequently during the same day apprehended by two constables between twelve and one, in a hut on the road leading to Mr. Hudson’s farm. The prisoners made no available defence and were sentenced to be worked in irons for a period of twelve months, and thereafter to be returned to their service - Travers is to be sent to hospital until his recovery
