OBITUARY.

SENIOR-CONSTABLE STARR.

Senior-Constable Timothy Starr, of the Marrickville Police Station, died in Lewisham Hospital on Friday from pneumonia, contracted through a chill he received while recovering the body of one of the boys who was drowned in a waterhole at Marrickville on September 23 last.

Deceased was a strict Catholic, the last rites of the Church being administered to him by the Very Rev. Father Frederick, C.P., who also visited him during his illness.

The late Senior-Constable Starr was a native of the County Clare, Ireland, and was 46 years of age.

He came to Australia about 26 years ago, and had just completed 20 years’ service in the police force.

He was first appointed to No. 3 Station, and subsequently to Paddington, where he was promoted to the rank of Senior-Constable.

Three years ago he was transferred to Marrickville.

Deceased was a popular officer, and was much respected and esteemed by the residents of the districts in which he had done duty.

He was a man of sterling character, and had the confidence of his superiors.

His wife predeceased him three years ago, and he has left one child — a little girl about six years old.

A Mass for the repose of the soul was celebrated in St. Brigid’s, Marrickville, by the Very Rev. Father Frederick, C.P., on Saturday morning.

The funeral left the church in the afternoon for the Waverley Cemetery, and after the Last Absolutions had been pronounced the coffin was carried to the hearse by four of the deceased’s comrades, the ‘ Dead March ‘ being played on the organ meanwhile.

Over 100 members of the Metropolitan Police Force, under Inspector McIntosh, marched in front of the hearse, which was also preceded by the Very Rev. Fathers Frederick, C.P., and P. B. Kennedy, O.F.M., who officiated at the grave.

The cortege was headed by the Police Band, under Senior-Constables Mankey and Hamilton, which rendered the customary funeral music.

The attendance at the funeral was very large, the crowd that gathered around St. Brigid’s Church being a very big one.

Father Frederick preached the panegyric at the grave.

Amongst those present were Senior Sergeants Griffiths ( Ashfield ) and Parkinson ( No. 1 Police Station ), Senior-Constables Orr ( North Sydney ), Graham ( Paddington ) and Phelan, and Constable Thomas Moloney ( No. 3 Station ), one of deceased’s oldest and most trusted friends.

THE CONSTABLE AND DOG.

John Docksay, of Annandale-street, Darling Point, is the owner of a handsome retriever dog.

On the evening of October 11 Constable Timothy Starr happened to be in the neighborhood of the place mentioned, and the animal, without preliminary warning or ultimatum of any kind, bit him in the shin, not, however, in such a way as to prevent him from discharging his duty.

At the Paddington Police Court yesterday Docksay was proceeded against for keeping a dog that endangered Constable Starr‘s limbs.

The defendant could not account for the animal’s foolish behavior, though he held the opinion that it only desired to play with the constable on the occasion referred to.

He was, however, ordered to pay £2, with 4s,10d costs, in default levy and distress.

Whilst at Waverley, today, 5/5/2021, I paid my respects to –
SENIOR CONSTABLE TIMOTHY STARR
Marrickville Police – Pneumonia – 6 October, 1905
Resting Place – Waverley Cemetery, Waverley
On 23 September, 1905 the constable was on duty assisting with the recovery of the bodies of two brothers, Richmond Augustus Kirkland (12) and George Nelson Kirkland (14) who had been drowned while fishing in a waterhole at Daley’s Brickworks in Marrickville, when he caught a severe chill.
He ( STARR ) was taken to Lewisham Hospital where it was found that his condition had deteriorated to pneumonia, and he passed away on 6 October.
The Catholic Press of 12 October, 1905 reported on the constables death.
“SENIOR CONSTABLE STARR.
Senior-Constable Timothy Starr, of the Marrickville Police Station, died in Lewisham Hospital on Friday from pneumonia, contracted through a chill he received while recovering the body of one of the boys who was drowned in a waterhole at Marrickville on September 23 last.
Deceased was a strict Catholic, the last rites of the Church being administered to him by the Very Rev. Father Frederick, C.P., who also visited him during his illness.
The late Senior-Constable Starr was a native of the County Clare, Ireland, and was 46 years of age. He came to Australia about 26 years ago, and had just completed 20 years service in the police force.
He was first appointed to No. 3 Station, and subsequently to Paddington, where he was promoted to the rank of Senior-Constable.
Three years ago he was transferred to Marrickville.

His wife predeceased him three years ago, and he has left one child — a little girl about six years old.”
The constable was born in Killaloe, Ireland in 1859 and joined the New South Wales Police Force on 16 September, 1885. At the time of his death he was stationed at Marrickville. His death was recorded in the New South Wales Police Gazette of 27 December, 1905. He is not listed in the official New South Wales Police Honour Roll.
With thanks to Danny Webster for his story.

RUSHCUTTER’S BAY SENSATION

A MAN AND A REVOLVER. EXTRAORDINARY BEHAVIOR. TWO LIVES IN DANGER EFFECTS OF THE WAR FEVER.

Many of the residents of Rushcutter’s Bay, in the neighborhood of the power-house, were startled on Saturday night last by the unusual sound of arms being discharged in that quiet neighborhood. The facts in connection with the occurrence go to show that what might have been very grave consequences were escaped by sheer good luck, two lives having been seriously endangered.

It appears that at about 10.25 p.m., Mr. Benjamin Bernard, a resident of Elizabeth-street, Paddington, and engaged in business at 89½ King-street, Sydney, was walking along Bayswater-road, on his way home by that route. He passed the power house, and reached that open portion of the road opposite Rushcutter’s Bay Reserve. As he neared the hoarding on the right hand side of the road, he saw a man under the lamp post flourishing a revolver, and just when he got within a few yards of him the weapon was discharged in the direction of the reserve.

Mr. Bernard at once remonstrated angrily with the man upon the recklessness of his conduct, and gave him a strong warning not to repeat it, and then proceeded on his journey.

When he had gone 50 or 100 yards, he met Constable Timothy Starr, to whom he related the occurrence, saying that he thought, there was a man running amuck farther down.

The constable proceeded towards the power house, and after he had gone a few moments it occurred to Mr. Bernard that he had better go back, in case his assistance might be required.

He accordingly turned, and crossed over the road towards the Bayswater-road Hotel. As he stepped on the footpath he found himself face to face with the man, who evidently had escaped the constable.

The man instantly raised his revolver, and discharged it at Mr. Bernard’s head.

Mr. Bernard had seen the danger, and ducked to one side, and the bullet whizzed past over his shoulder. The man then passed on, leaving Mr. Bernard for the moment dazed. The latter’s blood, however, was now up, and he determined to close with the man, and for that purpose prepared to rush on him unawares.

Just then Constable Starr, who had heard the shot, flew past in the direction of the man, and immediately got close to him. The man thereupon turned round, and levelled his revolver at the constable. The latter almost instinctively raised up his cloak to ward off, as well as it could, the bullet which he was certain was coming. The trigger was heard being drawn, and the leaden messenger was awaited, but providentially it did not come.

The revolver would not work for just that instant, and before the man could do anything both the constable and Mr. Bernard were upon him, and had him soon pinned to the ground.

Starr quickly took the revolver out of his hand ; but had hardly got hold of it when it went off — fortunately in a safe direction.

The man was then taken to the Paddington Station, where he gave the name of Charles Willis, 29, groom, an Englishman, and said to be in the employ of Mr. McGrath, livery stable proprietor, Castlereagh street, Sydney.

On the way to the station his captors asked him for some explanation of his conduct, but he did not appear to be very coherent, or to quite understand his position.

He talked about being in the Transvaal, and being stuck up by the Boers, whom he had accordingly fired at.

In reply to the constable he also stated that he remembered having ” three rums ” that night, and was not quite sure how he got as far as Rushcutter’s Bay, since he resided in Sydney.

At the Paddington Police Court to-day, before Mr. Isaacs, S.M., Willis was charged with maliciously shooting at Benjamin Bernard, with intent to do grievous bodily harm, and a remand being asked for by the police, the case was adjourned till Thursday next.

The accused is a small man, of rather depressed appearance. There was nothing about him that would suggest him as a formidable opponent for the Boers. His memory of the events of Saturday night is very confused, and he can give no coherent account of the proceedings on that occasion.

The revolver is an old one, and bears on it the imprint, ” Presse, Laloux, and Cie, Liege. ”

Three discharged cartridges were found in it, and one undischarged.

COBAR —

An unusual incident occurred at the Regent Theatre, Cobar, recently, when a lady resident, who was enjoying the pictures, was hit with an egg.  She had some knitting which she was doing, when, to her great surprise, she felt a sudden blow on the chest. On investigation she found she had been hit with an egg. Luckily, the yoke did not break, or her beautiful frock and knitting would have been ruined.

The matter was reported to the police, and Constable Megaw questioned a number of boys at the pictures, without finding who threw the egg.

The police were later informed that two eggs were purchased at a nearby shop while the pictures were in process, and as a result, they expect to be able to take appropriate action against the egg thrower.

For the information of those of us who know Retired Chief Inspector Peter Lindwall from the Warilla days.
I sent Pete & Flo and email yesterday asking how they are because I expected to see Pete at Kevin Monks funeral and thought it strange he didn’t show.
Pete sent me the below message yesterday evening – but I have only just read it now.
He was a bloody great bloke and it is a shame to hear of this happening to him – so I will have to get down there in the early New Year for a coffee with him. ( this, unfortunately, didn’t happen but I did get to speak with Pete about 4 days before his passing, with a phone call ).
Hi Cal,
Unfortunately I’m not travelling too well my self at the moment.
I am sorry but I thought that you would have heard about this.
In December last year ( 2019 ) I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. For the first half of 2020 I was receiving chemo at Wollongong Hospital. All appeared to be going well but after the treatment finished the chemo returned which wasn’t good. I started in a clinical trial at Prince of Wales, Randwick in September which also was going well, but follow up scans showed that the lymphoma had once again returned. There is no more treatment that I can have or the Doctors can do.
I’ve been in and out of hospital for the past twelve months. I came home from hospital on Christmas Eve and hopefully I won’t have to go back in.
I’m feeling okay, some pain around the back and hips, but I am on pain relief medication.
I’m sorry that you didn’t know about this I just thought that the word would have passed around.
It was certainly a shock about Kevin Monk, but unfortunately I wasn’t in a position to attend the funeral.
Feel free to pass this information on to anybody that you think should know.
My mobile phone number is 0409 247 685. It’s okay to give me a call.
Thanks for your concern Cal, we greatly appreciate it.
Regards
Peter

 

 


 

Deepest condolences to Pete’s wife, Flo, son Steve, family and friends.

 

Pete was a lovely bloke who cared for his troops and family.  He was a bloke for whom everyone respected because of his nature.

VALE
This morning at 9.15am EDST, Monday the 18 January 2021. The world became a sadder place and contains a great void in the hearts of many.
It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to inform all of the passing of:-
Raymond C. ROBINSON
“Robbo”
19/08/1953 – 18/01/2021
Registered No: 16203
Sergeant Retired, New South Wales Police Force
Class No: 138 14/01/1974 – 25/02/1974 Attested Pro/Constable

25/02/1979 Promoted to Constable 1st Class
25/02/1983 Promoted to Senior Constable
Promoted to Sergeant 1989
Section 66 Inspector
What can I say Robbo was a close friend to myself and many others and a brother of the Thin Blue Line. He will be sadly missed by one and all even those that did not have the honour of meeting him in person. He was a larger than life character and a mentor to many in Law Enforcement and the Motorcycling world.
Robbo has ridden on ahead to check the roads and rides for those of us that will eventually join him.
R.I.P Brother, Til Valhalla
Funeral arrangements will be posted once they come to hand. Please keep Fay, Ashley and Robbo’s extended family in your thoughts and prayers at this of saddest time.

NOTICE.- We, the undersigned, having been induced to leave our native country by the representations and promises made to us to serve as a police force at Sydney, New South Wales, we now find we cannot have those promises realized, and without which our position would be much worse here than in England.

We are further noticed that, on Saturday next, we are to be put on shore to seek lodgings where we can.

We have, therefore, determined to appeal to the public for prompt employment in our respective callings, and we are willing to accept service at moderate wages in Sydney, or in the country, as may be required.

We are assured by our legal adviser, Mr. Ryan Brenan, of the firm of Brenan and Russell, that parties employing us do not run the slightest risk, and we are willing to allow our wages to accumulate, for a reasonable time, to protect our employers, should they entertain any doubt on the subject.

THE BALLOON RIOT IN THE DOMAIN

DEATH OF THOMAS DOWNS.

The boy Downs having died in the Infirmary on Wednesday morning from injuries received on Monday afternoon, by the falling of one of the upright poles erected in the Domain for the purpose of sustaining the balloon of M. Pierre Maigre during the process of inflation, an inquest was held on his body, shortly after mid-day, at the Three Tuns, King-street, before Mr. J. S. Parker and a jury of thirteen. John Kelly, Edward Atkinson, and Joseph Prior, three seamen of H.M.S. Juno, who were brought up at the Central Police Court on Tuesday, for riotous conduct in the Domain on the previous evening, and had been remanded till Friday, were brought before the Coroner in custody, it having been alleged that they took an active part in knocking down the pole which inflicted the deadly wound on the deceased boy.

The first witness examined was Emanuel Benjamin, residing in Clyde-street, Miller’s Point, who deposed that deceased, Thomas Downs, was his stepson, and that he was about eleven years old. Deceased obtained permission from his mother on Monday to go to the Domain to see the balloon ascent ; he was to return in an hour, but did not ; went to the Domain at 10 o’clock at night to seek for him ; then heard that two boys had been hurt, and taken to the Infirmary ; on enquiry there, found that his step-son was one of them ; identified, the body lying dead at the Infirmary as that of his wife’s son.

Donald McIntosh McEwen, a duly qualified medical practitioner, stated that, on Tuesday morning, between 9 and 10 o’clock, he made his usual visit to the Infirmary, and then saw the deceased, who had been attended immediately after the accident on the previous evening, by Drs. Nelson and McFarlane, in conjunction with the house surgeon ; examined deceased, and found him in a state of insensibility, with a very serious fracture on the left side of the head, extending from the forehead to the vertex ; about the vertex there had been several pieces of bone removed ; from the substance of the skull saw the place they had been taken from ; produced the pieces ; the injury he described would be quite sufficient to cause death, and such an injury would be inflicted by one blow from a heavy substance ; there was a clean cut extending from about the middle of the frontal bone to the vertex ; there was no coagulated blood on the surface of the skull ; the wound must have bled freely; a stick in the hand of a powerful man would make such a wound and fracture on a child of such tender years. On being recalled, the same witness stated that there were no other marks of violence on the body but the one he had described ; the evidence he gave was from what he bad seen, not from anything he had heard.

William Mortimer, inspector of the police force, and in charge of the C division, was next examined, and detailed at some length the riotous proceedings he had witnessed ; his attention was particularly called to some sailors belonging to H.M.S. Juno, forcing themselves over some iron fencing round the balloon ; he remonstrated with them, and got them to go back again ; about 7, when the balloon become inflated and rose two or three yards in the air, a rope fastened to the top of it became entangled ; some one cried out ” Cut the rope ;” M. Maigre was at that time in the car attached to the balloon ; it began swaying about, and the gas was escaping ; saw some sailors and soldiers, with other parties, pulling the balloon down ; his attention was called to a great number of persons rushing towards a tent in which the Governor and his suite had been sitting; followed and saw M. Maigre running, with a body of police around and protecting him, to get away to a place of safety ; on returning to the spot where the balloon was, having been away about four or five minutes, found the enclosure full of people, and among the most prominent saw some sailors of H .M. S. Juno, and some soldiers, who had surrounded and got hold of Captain McLerie, the Inspector-General of Police ; noticed the prisoner John Kelly; he, with other sailors, was pulling the balloon towards the fire, and they eventually burnt it ; saw the same prisoner most active in pulling down a tent in which the spirits of wine had been kept ; it was also destroyed ; about an hour after his attention was called to the same prisoner, who was engaged with other sailors destroying the fencing, chairs, and seats, throwing them into an immense fire ; Captain McLerie and he did all they could to prevent mischief ; he had been roughly handled, and threatened to be thrown into the fire by Kelly and others ; saw one of the poles pulled down with a great crash ; didn’t know by whom it was done ; also saw the second pole come down, a few moments after ; the sailors appeared to be a little groggy ; there might have been eight or nine of them ; had no doubt as to the identity of Kelly ; he was taken into custody and removed to St. James’ watch-house, where witness identified him as the leader of the mischief ; from the density of the crowd was surprised that so few people were injured by the falling of the poles.

William Hamilton Galbraith, a medical practitioner, had been in the Domain on Monday afternoon ; saw a machine miscalled a balloon, suspended from two pair of spliced poles ; saw it burned, together with a tent and its contents ; saw a soldier of the 11th upset an iron furnace in which was some ignited straw ; some sailors and others drew the balloon across the fire and set it in a blaze ; the tallest prisoner was the most conspicuous amongst them ; saw the poles pulled down by several persons whom he did not know ; there were boys and a woman among them assisting in pulling, and crying out cut the ropes ; took particular notice of the prisoner ; be ran bodily against the pole as soon as the ropes were cut, and by his main force shoved the pole down ; when the pole fell, heard a scream, and cries of Oh ! Oh ! ran to see what had happened ; found two boys lying, one with a severe cut in the head and quite insensible ; examined the wound and found there was a fracture of the skull, about four or five inches long : it was bleeding very much ; he breathed heavily ; heard afterwards that he was taken to the Infirmary ; did not see the prisoner cut any rope ; the poles would not have fallen had the ropes not been cut ; saw sailors, or men dressed like sailors, drawing out sheath knives about the pole ; immediately afterwards the ropes were adrift.

By the prisoner : At what time did you see me ? Answer : About seven o’clock. Had no doubt as to the identity of the prisoner.

Robert Hobbs deposed that he went to the Domain on Monday morning about half-past six with tents for the accommodation of visitors, and remained there till ten at night ; identifies the prisoner Atkinson ; saw him kick the furnace, and some sparks flew from it ; he did not kick it over; at the same instant the mob around said set fire to the balloon, which was no sooner said than done ; prisoner drew the balloon to the fire and set it alight, then drew it to the tent, with the assistance of Kelly and others, and set fire to the tent. The witness next described the pulling down of the poles ; the prisoner Atkinson let go the guys ; could have seen clearly had any one pushed at the pole when it fell ; did not see any one pushing it ; saw a soldier or marine about at the time the balloon and tents were burned ; he took a very active part in it ; did not see the second pole fall, nor did he hear any one call ” Get out of the way” before the first pole fell ; saw a man dressed as a sailor of the Juno, who was pockmarked; he took an active part in pulling down the poles ; could identify him.

By the prisoner Atkinson ; It was between half past 7 and a quarter to 8 that he saw the prisoner at the balloon ; recognised the prisoner by his dress and present appearance; he was a little excited from drink ; saw no sheaths or knives with the sailors.

George Nelson spoke generally as to the conduct of the crowd, and from the falling of the poles, from the position the boy was in, did not think he could have had anything do with the pulling at the pole which fell on him ; saw no one shove the pole, nor did he recognise the sailors now present as being there ; several sailors were throwing chairs and other things on the fire ; saw sailors with others pulling on the ropes, but did not see them do more than others did ; gave the alarm to the police that a boy was killed ; could not identify a single individual that was there.

At this stage of the proceedings, the enquiry was adjourned until next day ( Thursday ), at 12 o’clock, and the jurors bound over in the sum of £20 each for their appearance.

SECOND DAY.

Yesterday, at noon, the inquest was resumed at Mr. Driver‘s, King-street.

Mark Levy, furniture dealer, George-street, examined : Went to the Domain at 4 o’clock to see the balloon ; saw some men-of-war sailors there, who were the worse for liquor ; recognised the two shortest prisoners now before the Court as the men ; saw the sailor Atkinson pulling away the other, who gives his name as Prior, and persuading him to come away ; Prior wanted to fight some one ; they were disposed to be quarrelsome, and persuaded them to go away ; then saw Atkinson and Prior go out of the gate ; did not see them go near the pole ; it is possible that they might have got back to the pole without his seeing them ; saw lots of boys there, and it was his opinion they did most mischief ; was almost positive that the seamen now before the Court had no hand in pulling down the poles ; believed the people were quite as much excited as the sailors ; followed the body of the boy, and as he got outside the gate, saw the prisoner Kelly standing talking to some other sailors ; this might have been about 200 yards from the pole ; it is possible he might have come from the pole after it fell ; thought however, that he did not ; cannot say whether he was in liquor or not.

By a Juror : Was within a few yards of Atkinson when prisoner pulled him away.

By the prisoner Atkinson : Saw him first about four o’clock.

Samuel Redshaw, a police constable, stated that he did not see the first pole pulled down ; saw the second, however ; the prisoner Kelly was pulling a rope attached to it, and calling for help ; was about ten yards from him ; many civilians were assisting equally as bad as the sailors.

James Burt, sergeant of police, detailed the burning of the balloon, chairs, &c. With reference to the pulling down of the poles, he stated that there were civilians, as well as sailors and soldiers engaged in the work ; believes he saw the prisoner Prior there doing as the mob did ; the prisoner Kelly was not there to his knowledge ; had he been, thinks he must have seen him ; although he said that sailors and soldiers took an active part in the affray, he meant that they were more prominent by their dress ; the people were quite as much engaged as they.

William Carruthers, civil engineer, residing in Woolloomooloo, was in the Domain on Monday afternoon. His evidence presented no new feature, the chief point in it being, that before the pole came down a general shout having previously been given that it was falling, and to look out for it – it was almost impossible to say who was to blame in the matter, as it seemed a general thing. Dr. Duigan informed witness, after he had examined the boy, that he ( Thomas Downs ) could not live. Did not, on Monday, see any of the prisoners then before the Court.

This closed the evidence, and the jury shortly after returned the following verdict :- ” That the deceased, Thomas Downs, aged 11 years, came to his death by the falling of a pole in the Domain, on Monday evening the 15th instant, which was thrown down by a disappointed and excited crowd of people, out of whom it is impossible to single out any individuals as the ringleaders, or as throwing down the poles ; and we unanimously consider that, if any person is to blame, it is Monsieur Maigre, the perpetrator of the sham balloon ascent, which we consider caused the death of the said boy. We wish this to be considered a censure upon Monsieur Maigre. ”

SECOND COURT.

Before Mr. Justice Milford.

INDECENT ASSAULT OF A CHILD.

Patrick Connery, indicted at the last sittings, was placed in the dock to stand his trial for that he, at Paddington, on the 13th day of October, 1859, did unlawfully and indecently assault one Mary Ellen Burke, a female child under the age of twelve years.

Mr. Butler conducted the prosecution against the prisoner, who was not defended by counsel.

The prosecuting counsel addressed the jury, and briefly stated to them the circumstances of the case.

Sergeant Samuel Redshaw, of the Sydney Police Force, deposed that he had arrested the prisoner on the fourteenth October last. Witness told him what was the charge against him. Prisoner said that the charge was a made up affair between the mother, the daughter, and the old woman Connolly.

The witness was cross-examined by the prisoner, but nothing of importance was elicited.

Mary Ellen Burke, the child referred to in the indictment, aged about seven years, was brought into court, but as she did not appear to have received any instruction whatever upon religion, her evidence could not be taken.

Catherine Connolly deposed that she knew the prisoner ; at the time that prisoner was arrested she was stopping at the house of Mr. Burke, the publican – the father of the little girl, Mary Ellen Burke ; witness one day went up stairs, and went into a room wherein there was only a basin stand and a box. This was three or four months ago. Mrs. Burke’s child was there, and the prisoner was also in the same room. [ Witness then proceeded to describe circumstances which amounted to a direct proof of the charge against the prisoner. ]

The prisoner had been drinking that morning, and seemed much the worse for liquor. Witness went down immediately, and told the parents ; the father questioned the child, and, on hearing what she said, struck Connery with a billet of wood when he came down stairs ; Mrs. Burke had sent witness upstairs for the child. Witness was cross-examined by the prisoner, but her evidence was not thereby affected. Cross-examined by the Judge, witness described the nature of the washhand-stand on which the child was sitting when witness went into the room ; the little girl was sitting on the top of it ; the prisoner had owed witness a pound for a long time, and witness used to ask him for it ; about a fortnight before this occurred Burke was bouncing the prisoner, and saying that he would not give up the property to him.

Mary Burke, the mother of the child Mary Ellen Burke, deposed that she remembered the day that something was done to her daughter. She was upstairs that morning with her brother ; they both once came down together : they had then some money, which the child said Paddy ( the prisoner ) had given to them ; witness was in the front room sewing, and after that sent the woman Connolly up stairs for them ; the woman came down stairs saying the child was destroyed ; witness saw her husband, just afterwards, striking the prisoner with a billet of wood; there was no difference existing between witness’s husband and the prisoner, except that Connery held a mortgage over the house. The prisoner had drunk something that morning, but was not drunk ; witness was not drunk. Cross-examined by the prisoner : witness admitted she had once been placed in gaol by her husband, and that prisoner had bailed her out ; witness had never expressed a determination to be revenged upon prisoner; the witness Connolly was drunk on that day, at the time she came down stairs, and made the statement against the prisoner Connery. The counsel for the Crown begged to withdraw the case.

The jury ( by the direction of the Judge ) returned a verdict of not guilty, and the jury intimated that the prisoner left the Court without any stain upon his character.

WATER POLICE COURT.- Friday.

Before Messrs. S. North and J. McLean..

Sydney James Dalton was arrested by Samuel Redshaw, sergeant in the city police, charged with being in the dwelling-house of Rose Strange, for an unlawful purpose, on the 7th instant. The complainant Rose Strange, resides in Windmill-street, and only knew the defendant few days before she charged him with this offence.

It appears that he lodged in a house next door to the complainant, kept by a Mrs. Jacques, and about a quarter-past 2 a.m., on the morning of the 7th instant, the complainant was awoke by hearing a noise at the window shutters. She struck a light and saw defendant through the window, and asked him who he was and what he wanted, and he replied he would soon let her know. She went to the room in which her son slept, and roused him, and when they returned to complainant’s room Dalton was in the act of getting in at the window, whereupon, her son shoved him back, and he then went back to the house where he lodged.

On the following day, Mrs. Strange saw Dalton, and said if he apologised for what he had done, she would let the matter drop ; but he laughed, and said he was drunk at the time.

The prisoner, in defence, stated that when Mrs. Strange saw him the next day, that he said if he had been guilty of any ungentemanly act he was sorry for it.

The Bench ordered him to enter into his own recognisance in the sum of £50, to be of good behaviour for twelve months.

NEW SOUTH WALES PARLIAMENT.

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 4.

 

INQUEST AT LIVERPOOL

Mr W FORSTER asked the Colonial Secretary,

” 1. Has any communication been made to the Government, or to the Attorney General, relative to the alleged sudden and mysterious death of a man named Hart, a few weeks since, while in the service and upon the premises of Captain Moore, J P , of Liverpool ?

2. Was any inquest held upon Hart’s body, or magisterial investigation made at the time into the circumstances of Hart’s death ?

3. If so, by whom, when, and where?

4. Was there any post mortem examination, or was any – and, if any, what – medical man present at such inquest or investigation ?

5. What was the result?

6. Has any further enquiry been ordered, or is any intended, by the Government ?

Mr COWPER answered generally, that a communication was addressed to the Government and a magisterial inquiry held, the result of which he held in his hand, in the form of a police report.

It was as follows – ” John Hart, aged seventy-two, labourer, place of death, Asylum, Liverpool.

The deceased has been in the employ of Samuel Moore, Esq, J. P., Liverpool, for many years, but for some time past was not able to do much work.

He was very much addicted to drink, and on last Monday he got drunk, and a man named George Fagan gave him a slap on the face for making a noise in the yard, afterwards putting him into an outbuilding to sleep.

Yesterday morning, Captain Moore sent for me for the purpose of giving the deceased into custody for protection.

I saw that the deceased was very ill, and I sent a constable to Dr Smith for an order for his admittance into the Asylum. Dr Smith gave an order, and I had him removed there immediately, and he died this morning.

Dr Smith made a post mortem examination, and found that he died from apoplexy, and that the slap on the face did not hasten his death.

 

Samuel Redshaw,
245,
senior constable,
24th September, 1862 “.

The hon. Colonial Secretary stated further that, in consequence of a letter sent by Mr. Charles Luke Bayly, a second investigation was held before Mr Jones and another magistrate, with a similar result – the medical evidence proving death to have been caused by sanguineous apoplexy, and in no way brought about by the slap or blow which the deceased received.

Two PERSONS DROWNED BY FLOOD WATERS.-

The Coroner of Parramatta and Liverpool held an inquest at the Court-house, Liverpool, on the 24th instant, on the body of a man named Sidney Baldwin.

Samuel Redshaw, the senior-constable in charge of the Liverpool Station, deposed that at daylight on the 24th instant, he was in company with Mr. Thomas Thorn, searching for the body of deceased at Heathfield, about eight or nine miles down the George’s River, and found it in a paddock lying face downwards ; it was wet and covered with mud, and appeared to have been left by the flood waters as they receded ; it was then about 6 o’clock a.m. ; had the body brought to the police station.

Dr. Strong deposed that he had externally examined the body, and found it to present all the indications of death from drowning.

Thomas Thorn, farmer, Heathfield, deposed that he and deceased a little after daybreak on the 23rd instant started together on horseback towards a ridge, where some of witness’s cattle and horses were standing in the flood waters ; their horses got into a hole, and threw them both off into deep water ; both swam for it, holding their horse’s bridles; deceased said to him, ” I must let my horse go, it will be drowned ; ” witness then took both horses himself ; when he got standing ground he looked round for deceased, but he had disappeared beneath the water.

William Hart, a seaman, identified deceased as a shipmate of his by the Strathnaver, from England, in November last ; deceased came out as an able seaman, was 23 years of age, and a native of Manchester, England, where he had friends.

Verdict- ” Accidentally drowned. ”

Samuel REDSHAW

Kevin Banister

Rookwood cemetery today, 6/1/2021. Paid my respects to-

Senior Constable Samuel Redshaw, #245
Born c1832, Derbyshire, England.
Died 16/8/1886 at Parramatta NSW, cause unknown.
Buried Rookwood, NSW.
His headstone has been vandalised with graffiti.
It also overlooks the “Old Anglican War Lawn Cemetery” which makes it very easy to find.

Grave location:

Old Anglican Section, EE, zone B, plot #183. GPS -33.866970, 151.053185.

That gps will take anyone to his headstone so much so that one can download it to a smart phone with location/gps turned on, fire up google maps and walk to its location on the map. Use it all the time for Rookwood. So accurate that I have stood on top of an unmarked grave. (Posted earlier for an unmarked grave of a Police Officer). Hope this helps.

 

 

Nothing further, than what is recorded above, is known about this man at the time of publication.

North Curl Curl SLSC
We were delighted to present the inaugural Ross Lambert Perpetual award this year to Dominique Melbourn.
This award is presented for outstanding contribution in representing NCCSLSC as the best individual junior competitor at carnivals.
At State Championships 2020 Dom won gold for each of her individual water events of Swim, Iron, and Board, just managing to stay ahead of her team mate Olivia Clues.
Dom has consistently been at the pointy end in Surf Life Saving events. Gracious in defeat and magnanimous in success, Dom is polite and thoughtful to others. And when not in the water at carnivals, she is on the ropes supporting our beachies or cheering on her team mates, who altogether make an incredible team. Whilst this is presented to one individual it is equally a reflection of the exceptional peer, club, and coaching support at NCCSLSC.
.
This award is in honour of Ross Lambert, Nippers President in the 1987-88 season.

Man said to have hindered police

SYDNEY, Friday. — A teaching brother pleaded not guilty in Central Court today to a charge of hindering police who had arrested a drunken Aboriginal woman in Sydney on November 30 last year.

Before the court was Brother Thomas Charles Hammerton, 39, a De La Salle teaching brother attached to the St Vincent’s Presbytery, Redfern.

Sergeant Ross Lambert said that as the woman was being placed in the police van, Brother Thomas had tried to grab, her. He said that Brother Thomas had yelled,”Watch the racist police.

Watch. Watch”.

He told Brother Thomas to go away but he lunged again and tried to take hold of the woman.

Brother Thomas said he had told the police to treat the woman with dignity and respect.

He said the police pushed and shoved the woman like a “sack of potatoes”.

He said he had then said to them, “Hey, are you a racist or what?”

Mr Berman, SM, adjourned the hearing until March 16 and allowed Brother Thomas to go free without bail.

When I was attached to 7 Division general duties in the 1960s, I bumped into Mick Trevor fairly regularly working at various events eg. Randwick Races, SCG rugby league. Mick was a sergeant in those days and was a gentleman.

 

 

I Knew Mick Trevor well. He was my boss at No.15 division and was my boss at 3 man station Malabar substation of 15 Div.
Mick was a shy bloke with subtle humour. Was in the Police choir at some stage. He was also a good wrestler as was Stan Franklin and Jim Armstrong. Last saw and spoke with Mick was when he was an Inspector at Central Police Stn. No.1 Div. Late 70s. Was a good man. Rest in Peace.

Suicide Verdict Follows Shooting Fatality

Coroner Inquires Into Death of Clement Boon

After conducting an inquest at the Court House yesterday into the death of Clement Alexander Boon, the Corner ( Mr. W. H. Hall ) found that the deceased died from injuries wilfully infected by himself with a .22 calibre rifle on April 15.

Boon was found lying in the back yard of his aunt’s home at 517 Chapple Street on that day. There was a bullet wound in his right temple and a .22 calibre repeating rifle was lying beside him. At the time of the accident there was no one but deceased present on the premises.

From evidence stated yesterday, deceased, appeared to be in excellent health and spirits prior to his death. He was described by several witnesses as “happy-go lucky”, although he was never known to have confided in anyone.

Dr. Keith J. Wilson, medical practitioner, told the coroner, that when he answered a call to 517 Chapple Street about noon on April 15, he found the deceased lying on the ground outside the back door of the premises.

Deceased was then alive, although unconscious. He was conveyed to Hospital, where he was examined by Dr. R. T. Bull.

Dr. R.T. Bull said yesterday that when he examined deceased he found he had a circular wound above the right temple region of the scalp. The wound was bleeding profusely and deceased’s breathing was stertorous. He died at 2.30 pm. that day.

The Acting Government Medical Officer. Dr. T. L. Dunn said that he conducted a post mortem on the body of deceased 9 am on April 16. He found that there was a small punctured wound in the scalp about quarter of an inch in diameter. There was no sign of powder marking on the skin nor singeing of the hair, although there was blacking within the wound. Internally the skull was fractured round the cranium. There was a small piece of lead lying under the scalp. Between the two holes in the skull there was a tunnel 2 inches wide, which traversed the brain, causing it to become very confused.

Explaining why there were no powder marks or blencing. Dr. Dunn said the barrel of the gun must have been held so firmly to the scalp that the gases and powder of the bullet followed the bullet into the cranial cavity. The passage of the bullet and inter-cranial pressure that brought about by the expanding gases caused the extensive brain damage and haemorrhage which were the cause of death, Dr. Dunn said.

The rifle which was found beside the deceased was identified yesterday by Donald. J. Tyson,. of 517 Chapple Street. Tyson said he had occupied the same room as deceased for the past six years. The rifles, his property, was unloaded when he put it between the wardrobe and the door of the room after using it on March 29.

Mervyn L. Sanderson, storeman, of 571 Chapple Lane, said that he had a few drinks with deceased and some other men at the Victoria Hotel about 5 p.m. on April 14. He noticed deceased was rubbing his eyes, which appeared to be watery. Witness said, “What’s the matter, are you short of money?” Deceased said, “No, I’ve got plenty of dough. I’m getting as bad as a baby, crying when I’ve had a few drinks.” Deceased mentioned that he was going to be married soon and had a “real nice girl.” witness said.

Clara Bertha Gilby, ,shop assistant, of 555 Chapple Street, said she had known deceased for a period of 14 years. She became engaged to him in July of last year. She said deceased had never at any time intimated to her he was about to take his own life.

Deceased’s aunt, Mrs Jean S. Tyson of 517 Chapple Street, said he had resided with her for the last six years. About noon on the morning of the fatality she, went across the road to a shop.

Before she went she told deceased to look after the dog and not let her follow her. She was away about 10 minutes when the dog entered the shop. When she returned witness went round to the back of the house; she called the deceased and received no answer. She walked further into the yard and found him on the ground. Witness said, “Whatever happened. Clem,” but deceased only groaned in reply.

Constable Michael J. Trevor told the coroner that from his investigations he had learnt that deceased was of a happy disposition, and a moderate drinker. He was about to be married and was waiting to obtain a home. Deceased had been a member of the Army in the last war, but had never been overseas.

Keith James Balman, who had identified the body to the coroner, said he had known deceased for 28 years.

In his summary, Mr. Hall said he could find no direct evidence as to how deceased met his death, but guided by the evidence of Dr. Dunn’s post mortem, he concluded that deceased died from haemorrhage and brain injuries wilfully inflicted by himself with a .22 calibre repeating rifle at 517 Chapple Street on April 15.
