Item: 180912
Surname: O Burn
First Name: John
Ship: Recovery 1823
Date: 4 June 1824
Place: Newcastle
Source: NSW Courts Magistrates, Newcastle Police Court: 1823-1825 (Ancestry)
Details: John O Burn assigned bonded servant to James Reid charged with refusing wholesome food and exciting his fellow prisoners to misconduct...Mr. James Reid stated, On Sunday morning last I felt it necessary to stop the tea and sugar of my government men, and to give them milk in lieu. It was received the first day, but on the second they declared that it was not fit for pigs and that I might keep it. I consider the prisoner O Burn to be a ringleader and exciting of the others to this misconduct. Formerly his conduct was good and I had reason to be satisfied with him, but lately I have ascertained that impropriety of the conduct which surprises me considerably. Prisoner denied the charge generally but stated nothing to the point. The Commandant (Henry Gillman) observed upon this occasion that with strict propriety he could not receive this person into government employ but conceiving them to be the reason and exciter of insubordination on Mr. Reids farm he considered it proper immediately to remove him from thence on the strong recommendation made by Mr. Reid as well as a private communication from Mr. Reid stating that his property was in great danger. The Commandant is induced to give the foregoing explanation as the reason for deviating from a rule laid down, in consequence of the litigious disposition evinced towards him by Mr. Reid and his adherents for some time past. Samue Theady was assigned to James Reid in place of John O Burn.
