Patrick Ross, Irish Rebel, per Atlas II, 1802. Tried Limerick, Life.
Present in 1811 Muster.
Trial of Insurgents, &c.
This day the Court assembled at 10 o’clock, when John Lynch, Thomas Shanks, John Morgan, Laughlan Doyle, Timothy Malahoy, John Brown, James Conroy, and Patrick Ross, stood indicted for feloniously entering the house of Thomas Neal, of Richmond Hill, Settler, on the 22nd of February last, and taking therefrom one bushel and one peck of wheat, his property.
The evidence for the Crown being called, John Kable deposed, that he was at the house of Thomas Neale on the 22nd of February; that about 4 o’clock in the afternoon, 3 men surrounded him as he was going out, one of whom had a musket in his hand and the other a cutlass; they desired him not to be discouraged, for that they would not molest him if he made no resistance: Conroy and Lynch he identified to be two of the said three men. They then entered the house, and asked the deponent if he had any thing for them to eat, he gave them a piece of cake, they demanded meat, but the deponent answered, that there was none in the house; they then took about a peck of wheat: William Lane at this time entered the house, with a bushel of wheat in a bag; this they took from him, ground it, and cooked two pots of dumplings, taking away such of the meal as remained uncooked. Eight others had entered shortly after the three first, of whom he identified Shanks, Ross, and Morgan. They staid in the house some time, took two muskets and a quart pot away with them, leaving the deponent, Thomas Neal, and two other men who were in the house, tied hand and foot. All the delinquents went away together, and Lynch it was that had taken down the muskets.
Thomas Neal deposed, that on the said 22nd of February, upon his return home, he saw some men in the house dining; they desired him not to be alarmed, for they would not hurt him. His testimony exactly corresponded with the former, as to their conduct in the house.
He also deposed, that one of the muskets taken away by the prisoners, who were eleven in number, was his property. He then positively identi?ed Shanks, Lynch, Conroy, Brown, and Morgan.
William Lane deposed, that he was at the house of Thomas Neal when the above felony was committed. That one the Muskets taken by them was his property, and that after they had ground and cooked a part of the wheat, as before stated, they took away the remainder, leaving him and three others bound hand and foot. Lynch, Conroy, Brown, and Shanks, he positively swore to.
The evidence being closed, the Court, after some minutes deliberation, returned a verdict, - all Guilty- Death!
It seems they were all reprieved.
