Nathan Joseph

Although Nathan Joseph had only held the license for the Lamb Inn for a short time in 1849, he was an experienced Innkeeper as he had previously held the license for the Traveller's Inn in Singleton. His experience led him to suspect two visitors to the Lamb Inn in September 1849 and he kept a close watch on them. When his wife discovered a valuable shawl missing, Mr. Joseph called in the constables who searched the couple's carpet bags and room. Along with stolen items found hidden in their bed was a leather pouch containing eleven skeleton keys and four picklocks. Maitland Mercury 5 December 1849
