James Dingle was a participant in the major robbery of the Bank of Australia premises in September 1828. Dingle was eventually arrested, tried and found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment, initially at Norfolk Island. He escaped from Norfolk Island in 1833 and was assumed to have drowned at sea. One of his cohorts in the robbery was John Wilford Creighton. Both James Dingle and John Wilford Creighton married the same girl, Anne Toole, daughter of Bernard Toole, another convict. John married Anne in 1826, and he drowned in January 1828, along with Bernard. James married Anne in 1829.
