Details: The chief of the tribe about to proceed to Van Diemens Land to aid the police in discovering the retreats of the hostile natives is Bob Barrett who was in prison some time since on a charge of murder committed in a melee on an aboriginal native called Dirty Dick. Our Readers we have no doubt well remember this case and the luminous decision of the Supreme Court delivered by the Chief Justice with respect to the liabilty of the natives to British laws for the result of quarrels among themselves. Those who had the good fortune to hear it will not easily forget that masterly appeal to the reason illustrated by the principles of international law which Mr. Forbes delivered on that occasion

Place: Port Stephens

Details: Died - At Port Stephens - on the 15th instant the well known Aboriginal Bob Barrett. In intelligence and docility, he was inferior to none of his sable contemporaries and was the only native in the above district who had any correct ideas of time or distance. His migrations extended from Port Macquarie to Sydney, at which latter place many will remember having seen a tall upright Black, dressed in an old uniform. Unlike the majority of the Natives, Barrett was an instance of improvement by intercourse with Europeans and had the honor of having been employed occasionally on His Majestys service. He died of confluent small pox. He had been removed into a house appropriated to the reception of sick Natives, and was supplied through the humanity of Sir Edward Parry with every requisite. Here he was doing well, till the Karadquo induced him to quit the house, on the second day after which he expired

Details: Coroners inquest into the death of Borondo alias Dirty Dick..Testimony of Mr. Walpole that he saw the man beset by four aborigines one of who he identified as Monunggal alias Bob Barrett who had been that day perambulating about Sydney in a uniform coat, cocked hat and red feather, he also wore a white frilled shirt, which made him double conspicuous. From these circumstances the Coroner deemed it essential to get hold of Bob Barrett which every means for that purpose was adopted and he was found secreted on board a colonial vessel and brought under a proper escort before the Coroner who interrogated him so closely that he acknowledged that he was present at the transaction and that although he did not give the first blow he did the second with his walking stick. He was therefore given in charge and put in safe custody.

Date: June 1841
Place: Dungog
Source: Dungog Chronicle
Details: The Blacks of Dungog, Port Stephens and Gresford . By Gordon- Bennett. In June 1841 a black fellow named. Bobby met with a violent end near Stroud. From the records it appears that Bobby, with another black named Dick, approached the hut of an assigned servant who was known throughout the district by the name Cranky, and asked for some flour. The response was a gun-shot and Bobby was killed outright. The murderer was apprehended at once, the crime having been committed in sight of a number of the officers of the Company, and he was brought before Capt. Cook. Commenting on the case to the Attorney-General in Sydney, Capt Cook wrote - I feel very keenly over this case as the murdered aboriginal was of excellent character and has done me many valuable services. The murderer, from his nick-name Cranky made me at first think that he might at times labor under an aberration of mind, but no great abnormality ever having been noticed in his conduct or behaviour I fear that the deed has altogether emanated from a naturally violent and ungovernable temper. In a subsequent letter Capt. Cook notes with pleasure that the death penalty had been carried out and that Cranky paid fully for his crime. - Dungog Chronicle 13 May 1919
