1828 Census Index
Daniel Ferguson, per Three Brothers, 12 Quarry Gang.

Daniel Ferguson, an aged man, holding a ticket-of-leave, was charged under the following circumstances: It appeared, from the variety of evidence adduced, that the prisoner had been in the habit of supplying Mr. Dixon, the flour factor, with firewood, and, a few days back, delivered a load of wood at the wharf, for which he received the accustomed receipt, being somewhat intoxicated at the time. Watching his opportunity, he again removed the greater part of the wood away in his boat. The offence being clearly proved, he threw himself on the clemency of the Bench, who, in consideration of his extreme age and apparent infirmity, sentenced him to be confined for ten days and return his ticket.

THE Ticket of Leave granted to the following Person has been cancelled, for the reason set against his Name; viz : —
Three Bees, Daniel Ferguson, for stealing wood.
