Date: 17 November 1826
Place: Newcastle
Source: NSW Courts Magistrates, Newcastle Police Court: 1823-1825, 1826-1827 (Ancestry)
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.
