21/8/1830 Newcastle Courant Northumberland, England:
NEWCASTLE & NORTHUMBERLAND ASSIZES
JOHN M’GRAW, (36,) and JOHN STOBART, (25,) were indicted for stealing a coat, waistcoat, and a variety of other articles, from the house of John Moor, of Burradon, near Earsdon, on the 16th of April : and HENRY DOWNING, (55,) MARY DOWNING, HIS WIFE, (42,) AND CATHERINE GRANT, (37,) for receiving different portions of the property, well knowing the same to have been stolen.  They severally pleaded not guilty.  Our readers will remember the circumstance of Mr Forsyth apprehending M’Graw and Stobart, on the Town Moor, about 3 months ago.  Some of Mr Moor’s property was found in their possession ; and a few trifling articles on or about each of the other prisoners, which his lordship said, in summing up the evidence, they might very easily have bought, without observing from whom, and without any guilty knowledge that they had been stolen.  M’Graw and Stobart were found Guilty___the other Not Guilty.
The prisoners were then re-arraigned on a second charge of felony and felonious receipt of stolen goods ; but Mr Losh, the crown counsel, having declined to call evidence in the case, they were all acquitted.  His lordship said, he would consider about the sentence upon M’Graw and Stobart, but intimated, that it was very probable they would be sent out of the country.  Death Recorded.

John was 5’5” tall, ruddy fair complexion, light brown hair, hazel eyes, ACJ8 on upper part left arm, scar under right eye near nose.

11/3/1846: TOL Maitland.

There is a death listed on Ancestry, and also on the VIC BDM for a John Stobart who died in 1857, but he was listed as 24 years old.  Nothing found in NSW.
