Contributed by D Wong on the record of her husband James Lockwood the younger.

1836: Married Mary Fagan at St James, Sydney - they had 5 or 6 children all born in Paddington, Sydney - 2 dates listed for Rosanna Lockwood born 1856 and one in 1857 - Rosanna died in 1858.

14/5/1855 Empire, Sydney:
Mary Lockwood was charged by her husbad, James Lockwood, with being an habitual drunkard, and neglecting to take care of her children.  Prosecutor stated that the defendant was constantly drinking; every night on his return home he found her in a state of intoxication; she had sold the greater part of the furniture in their house at Paddington, to enable her to gratify her inclination; the baby in her arms was dying by inches in consequence of her manner of living.  This was corroborated by Dr. Rutter, who had examined the child, which he said was wasting away to a skeleton, for want of its natural means of support.
The woman denied the charge, and accused her husband of cruelly treating her, but this charge was denied.  She was required to find sureties for her good behaviour for six months, or in default thereof to be imprisoned for that period.

26/5/1855 Empire, Sydney:
Anne Lockwood, a child of twelve months, died in the hospital prison of Darlinghurst. The medical dispenser of the gaol so reported the matter as to cause the mother, Mary Lockwood, to be brought before the coroner and a jury, on a charge of having accelerated the child’s death by ill treatment and neglect.  The woman was confined there for six weeks for drunkenness and gross abuse and neglect of her children, of whom the present deceased was the youngest.  She has been an habitual drunkard about two years….the jury persisted in returning a verdict, “Died by the visitation of God.”
