Details: Patrick Hoy, Samuel Harris, Edward Flyn, William Ward and John Austin, all in the service of the Australian Agricultural Company at Port Stephens charged with being at large without passes....Mr. George Muir, chief constable states - On Wednesday evening the prisoners were delivered to my custody by Constable George Higgins and a soldier of the Buffs who stated they had received them from Mr. Joseph Pennington, overseer and some native blacks at the 1st branch of the Hunter River. A letter from Mr. Joseph Pennington, a free settler, produced and read of which the following is a copy.....Leigh Farm, Hunters River, 14th November 1826...I beg leave to report that my overseer in junction with the following named black natives viz Doughboy, Kennedy, Bremen, Taylor and Jemmy Murray, captured the five following named convict servants assigned to the A.A. Co., who ran from their service on Saturday evening last viz - Edward Flyn (Surry 4th), Samuel Harris (Norfolk), Patrick Hoy (Isabella), John Austin (Hebe) and William Ward (Ann and Amelia). I should conceive my overseer as well as the Blacks are entitled to some reward as a stimulus to future exertions and request they may be noticed as others are performing similar services, I am, Sir, Joseph Pennington......The prisoner being called on to account for their being absent from their assignments - Patrick Hoy states as follows - Our reason for leaving Port Stephens was for the purpose of proceeding to the nearest Magistrate to make our complaint - We were on the way to Newcastle when we met Mr. Pennington s overseer to whom we surrendered ourselves and accompanied him without objection altho we were five in number. Four of us belong to the same gang at Port Stephens and were employed in breaking up new ground. There were sixteen in the gang and every Monday morning one hundred rod per man was measured off for our weeks work. The ground was hard to work and we were not able to accomplish the task, upon one occasion 15 of the gang received 25 lashes each for not performing it. I escaped from being on the sick list, besides which it was sometimes the custom to stop our allowance of tea and sugar if the task was not completed. It is impossible to do 100 rod in a week on new ground such as we had to work. We tried to do it but could not. We have even got to work in the morning before the Bugle sounded for work to try what we could do but with our utmost efforts from day break to sun set we could not succeed. Our rations are good. We have no complaints on that account. Harris, Flyn and Ward corroborate this statement. John Austin states - I was employed with two others to put up fences, that is not my trade - I am a sawyer. We were tasked to do 20 rod of rail per week, to cut and split the stuff and mortice and put it up. It is more than any three men can do. On remonstrating with Mr. Dawson, he said we must do even more. Remanded for a further hearing

Date: 12 June 1801
Place: Entrance to Lake Macquarie
Source: Voyage of Discovery to N.S.W. in the Lady Nelson in 1800-2] Author: James Grant
Details: Extract from Voyage of Discovery in the Lady Nelson when Dr. Harris landed near the entrance to the Lake.........He was near entering a wrong place, being deceived by the appearance of an island,* Hunter s, or Coal River, having one at its entrance; and as we had passed a place called Reid s Mistake (which lays to the northward of Broken Bay, and having an island before it, had deceived a man of that name for the entrance of Hunter s River), I thought this man, officially sent as a pilot, might be right. I had taken an observation, and did not find the latitude agree with that given me for Hunter s River, but our pilot supposed himself there, and was not convinced of his error till we got within half a mile of the island. As we were in 17 fathoms water, and the weather was fair, I got my boat out, and Dr. Harris went on shore to reconnoitre the place. In the meantime I brought up with the kedge, and set my people to fishing, who caught a number of snappers and other fish. On Dr. Harris s return, he brought with him a native, who, on seeing the boat had run down to it, crying out several times, Whale Boat! and Budgerie Dick! or Good Dick,a name we supposed had been given him by the people sent in search of those who ran away with the Norfolk, as before mentioned. This man had some fish with him, which he threw into the boat first, and then jumped into it himself, without the least hesitation.

Surname: Bumblefoot (Devil Devil) (Indigenous)
First Name: -

Date: 3 February 1825
Place: -
Source: SG
Details: Devil Devil alias Bumblefoot, an aboriginal black native, was next placed at the bar. Not understanding the English language, and no one being in attendance that could act a interpreter, it was found necessary to remand the prisoner. His Honor the Chief Justice observed, that it would be difficult to try a case like the present under Lord Ellenboroughs Act, but suggested the propriety of framing an information for an aggravated assault, which would be indictable at common law. The want of an interpreter is much needed, for justice cannot be said to have fair play between the European and the aborigine till their language is compreheded

Date: 18 November 1824
Place: Newcastle
Source: The Australian
Details: In the beginning of September last, Jeremiah Buffy, Wilks, and a little girl (whose mother was an aborigine) left Newcastle to search for lost cattle; they met a black man, and having given favourable answers to their questions, regarding the cattle, he and they agreed, that the black should accompany them. The weather having become rainy, and the sun obscured, they lost themselves. The conduct of the black was now such as to excite suspicion, and Buffy spoke sharply to him; particularly on one occasion, when in pretending to lead them to a tract, he brought them to the place they had set out from; the little girl told them, moreover, that he intended some mischief, and that he was coo-ing for some of his tribe. The dogs caught a kangaroo, and Wilks ran to get hold of it. Buffy sat down, and the black sat with him; but how different the occupations of the two. While Buffy filled the pipe, that they had both shared, and were likely again to share, the black was whetting the tomahawk (avowedly for opossums), with which he purposed to destroy the man he had lived with on terms of fellowship. Availing himself of Wilks absence, he laid Buffy prostrate with the edge of the tomahawk, and proceeded to plunder them of their fire-arms and provisions. When Wilks returned he found Buffy insensible. After a time, however, he spoke, and telling them he was dying, insisted that Wilks and the faithful little girl should return to Newcastle, as they were in danger if they remained. Having washed him, they left him, conceiving that he could not live long. All this time the black hovered about them, and now and then having a loaded musket, threatened to shoot Wilks, if he did not go away; and actually threw the tomahawk at the girl. After remaining help-less, and without food for five days, it pleased Providence top reserve Buffy, by the instrumentality of two black boys and his dog. The boys were leading him to Newcastle when the people came in quest of him, expecting to find him a corpse. The wound was situated in the back of the neck, immediately under the head, and must have been effected by three strokes of the edge of the tomahawk, as it presented a gash extending from ear to ear, so that the head rested upon the breast. He is, I believe, doing well. The Magistrates at the Hawkesbury were apprized of the fact when it took place. It happened about 40 miles from Newcastle, and opposite to Moon Island. The barbarian had a de-formed foot; the toes being turned upon the instep; the name by which he is known is, Devil Devil. He spoke of Mr. Wiseman, on the Hawkesbury. Wilkes is now in Sydney; and the girl can be found, if wanted.
