On the night of the 17th October, 1820, the house of Mr. Cotton was broken into by four men, with their faces blacked, who with threats and imprecations, possessed themselves of very considerable property.

At the ensuing assizes for this county, Samuel Grimwood, Thomas Last, and James Rozier, were capitally convicted of this burglary, and received sentence of death. Grimwood was executed at Ipswich, April 28, 1821; the others were reprieved for transportation.

Caught for burglary with Thomas Last (aggravated I believe) James descendants were to become the Richard Terry Family of Pyengana - Tasmania fame. The pub in the paddock where the pig slurps beer. Also Ted Terry - listed in wikipedia as a sportsman and another champion axeman
