4/1/1840 Warwick and Warwickshire Advertiser Warwickshire, England:
John Green and Moses Palmer were caged with having stolen, at Sutton Coldfield, 52 five pound bank of England notes, and 5 ten pound bank notes, the property of John Gerrard. The prosecutor, a farmer living near Worcester, stated, that he was at Rugeley fair on the 21st of October last.  On coming back, when he got to Lichfield, he went to a public-house to enquire for a return chaise to take him to Birmingham.  The prisoners were there, and said there was a light cart at the door, and he might go with them…... they later robbed him.

John Green arrived NSW per Maitland 1840.

Moses Palmer was 40 years old on arrival - native place: Crick, Northamptonshire.

Married, a widower, with 1 child.
