Place: Dungog
Source: Dungog Chronicle 22 December 1905
Details: Correspondence from Captain (?Thomas) Cook to Edward Deas Thompson dated 14 December 1837. Sir I do myself the honor to state to you for the information of His Excellency the Governor that a formal complaint was made to me a few days ago, by a respectable person in this neighbourhood in favour of five aborigines whose names are in the margin (Derby, Purser, and three others. The two blacks named adds the Police Magistrate in a marginal note, are most intelligent fellows and have great weight with their tribe. Derby is a King and speaks English well) who have for some time past been deprived of their gins, by a named F....t (supt. to John Lord, of this district) and that on hearing the story, I sent for the blacks to ascertain from themselves how the matter stood, and learning from themselves that F...t keeps quiet a seraglio and that in opposition to the remonstrances of the husbands and tribe the women belong to - I wrote a warning note to him, pointing out the necessity of his giving up the gins to the blackfellow Derby - who carried the letter. As my instructions from the Governor were very strict with regard to prosecuting those whether bond or free, who detained any of the black women contrary to their own wish or that of their friends. This communication when handed to Mr. F...t, he, as the blackfellow describes, read it, tore it to pieces and when throwing the fragments into the fireplace said in a contemptuous manner, There, go and bring another, threating at same time to shoot him if he did not instantly leave the place. Now such doings as have been reported of Mr. F....TT are not only a scandal and a disgrace to the district but lead to much ill blood and foul murder itself....Note - John Lord employed a Mr. Flett as Superintendent on his estate in the 1830s

Surname: Diamond (Indigenous)
First Name: -
Ship: -
Date: 14 August 1837
Place: Paterson
Source: Sydney Monitor
Details: George Green late of Paterson labourer, was indicted for the wilful murder of Diamond an aboriginal near Paterson on 3rd of January 1836 The prisoner was a shepherd in the employ of Mr. Walter Windeyer at the period in question; the country at that time was in a very disturbed state on account of the hostility of the blacks who had committed several murders and robberies in that district; the atrocities at length rose to such a pitch that the shepherds and stockmen refused to go out unless armed; the prisoner was consequently allowed a pistol for his protection. On the day in question while he was driving his sheep, he was set upon from behind by several blacks who pinioned his arms, and others proceeded to drive the sheep together, as was supposed to drive away; the prisoner struggled very much and succeeded in extricating himself and drew his pistol from under his coat and fired at the party and then ran for his life. A few days afterwards the mangled remains of a human body were found near the scene of the contest, which were said to be the remains of Diamond a black who had been missing since the day in question and was reported to have been shot by Green; an inquest was held but the Jury came to no satisfactory conclusion and the matter dropped for many months till raked up by the Crown officers. Mr. Windeyer was called by the prisoner for character and a remark of that gentleman caused a little amusement when he described the prisoner to be moderately honest. The Jury without hesitation returned a verdict of Not Guilty.

Date: 29 November 1854
Place: Rutherford
Source: Maitland Mercury
Details: MURDER OF AN ABORIGINAL.-On Sunday an inquest was held by Mr. Parker, coroner, at the Union Inn, Rutherford, on the body of an aboriginal of the Maitland tribe, named Dick. It appeared that Dick had been drunk on Friday evening, and was refused liquor about nine o clock by Mrs. Toby. The next morning he was found lying dead not far from the house, having been killed by two deep wounds in the head, inflicted apparently by a tomahawk. The perpetrator was evidently another aboriginal, but who he was could only be gathered from the statement of one, a Barwan black, who was taken in custody, and who said that Tommy, a tall blackfellow from beyond Cassilis, told him he was going to kill Dick that night, because one of his (Tommys) tribe was killed by a Maitland black some time since, when in Maitland. The jury returned a verdict that the de-ceased came by his death by wounds inflicted by some person or persons unknown, supposed to be up-country aboriginals ; and they added a rider condemning the practice of people supplying blacks with intoxicating liquors..
