18/6/1833: A prisoner of the Crown named Patrick Taffe, was consigned to the treadmill for 21 days, by the Police Bench on Friday last, for illegally levying on the goods and chattels of a person named Challinor, by which the said goods were sold,  the said Patrick Taaffe having no legal authority whatever to prosecute a warrant of distress.

Patrick died at the Kent Street property in 1841.  There is some discrepancy in his birth year, some records say he was born in 1791 and was 50 years old when he died, or he would have been 56 according to his trial records.
