John Clary and Thomas Oldmeadow Fry, both prisoners of the crown, were indicted for attacking one Margaret Read, at the Bulga, and putting her in bodily fear, they being at the time armed with loaded firearms.
There were two other charges against the prisoners-one for robbing the station of Mr. Thomas Parnell, at the Bulga ; and the other for robbing one Dennis Slattery, at the Wollombi.  The prisoners pleaded guilty, and were sentenced, the first to be transported for fifteen years, and the last for life.
Maitland Mercury, 16 Jan 1847.

A singular instance of depravity a youth, occurred a few days since in Lynn, who slaughtered a sheep, took out the inner fat and sold it. The barbarous act was committed in field in the purlieus of the town ; but we are glad to hear the young scoundrel has been taken, and is fully committed for trial. His name is Thomas Oldmeadow Fry, and he is only ? years old.
Huntingdon, Bedford and Paterborough Gazette, 21 Nov 1829.


Sentence of death was recorded against Thomas Fry, for killing a sheep, the property of Mr. S. Orris, and taking the fat, which he offered for sale ; but he was recommended to mercy.
Bury and Norwich Post, 27 Jan 1830.


His Majesty has been pleased to commute sentence of death passed on Thomas Fry, at our last sessions for slaughtering a sheep, to transportation for life.
Bury and Norwich Post, 10 Mar 1830.
