5/10/1844 Parramatta Chronicle, NSW:
Catherine Lynch was indicted for stealing an iron pot, the property of Henry Lodge, gardener, residing in Smith-street, Parramatta, on the 14th August. The iron pot was missed from Lodge’s yard, and was sold the same day by the prisoner to Catherine Pritchard, for a shilling. Guilty.  Sentence, six months in the 3rd class of the Female Factory.

26/1/1846 Sydney Morning Herald:
Charles West (a negro) was indicted for having, on the 1st January last, burglariously entered the premises belonging to one Thomas Small, at Kissing Point, and then and there beaten one Ellen Lodge.
It appeared from the evidence that Henry Lodge was gardener in the service of Mr. Small, and Ellen, his wife, acted as laundress ; that the prisoner was also employed by Mr. Small.
Further, it appeared that on the night in question the man Lodge was brought to his house from a tavern in the neighbourhood, so drunk that he knew nothing of what passed afterwards, until aroused by cries of murder. From the evidence of Ellen Lodge, it appeared that after her husband had been got home, she went to bed, but was alarmed hy the prisoner cutting down two slabs of the hut, and effecting an entry, and then threatening her, and biting one of her fingers to the bone, which led to the loss of the finger.
The prisoner, in his defence, attempted to set up some familiarity between himself and the female.
The Jury, after a few minutes’ consideration, found him guilty of burglary and beating.
The JUDGE told the prisoner that from the books before him there did not appear to be any statute exempting him from capital punishment ; he should remand him for sentence in order to ascertain if there were later authorities in the colony ; in the mean time, he informed the prisoner, that if he was obliged to pass the sentence of death upon him, he would promise that the sentence would be commuted to transportation for life or some lesser period.

31/3/1852 Sydney Morning Herald:
IF this comes to the notice of Mr. Henry Lodge, or any of his family, Ann Higgs, a relation of theirs, wishes to hear from them.
Crown-street, Woolloomooloo.
