22/10/1839 Colonial Times:
William Carr and John Hatch, were indicted for stealing on the 29th of August, two sheep, the property of Mr. Edward Luttrell, of the Black Brush.
Mr. Luttrell stated, that on returning from town, he saw the prisoners in custody; he had lost two sheep about that time, and the next day he saw their skins hanging up, quite fresh, in a hut occupied by the prisoners. (The skins were produced and identified.)
Peter Devereux, an intelligent lad, thirteen years of age, testified to seeing the prisoners putting two sheep into two bags.
The prisoner Hatch called a person, named Crump, to prove, that he had bought some kangaroo of him, - but the Jury found them both Guilty, and they were sentenced to be transported for life.
His Honor intimated, that, as their police characters were not bad, they should experience the benefit of their previous conduct.
John Hatch was then sent to Port Arthur for 3 years.
22/11/1839: John Hatch died at the Colonial Hospital aged 40
