Peter WINBERRY (as all records are under) was assigned to John Henry Smith, Publican, at Maitland.
26/2/1835: When his master John Henry Smith was transported for an affair against the law it left Winberry and other servants, free to roam. No one thought of his assignees.
Peter made his way to Sydney, where he stole items of clothing from a very drunk John Byrne/Birne. He was found guilty and sentenced to be sent to a Penal Colony for 3 years. He was sent to Moreton Bay.
15/6/1837: Indicted for assaulting and carnally knowing, Mary Pheny, an infant under 10 years of age, and daughter of a soldier of the 4th Regiment stationed there. Lack of evidence saw the charge dismissed, however, he was then charged with assault with intent, found guilty - to be worked in irons for 2 years.
1845: TOL Moreton Bay.
Found no other records of him.
The sentence of 7 years (as above) may be incorrect as the newspaper reports of his crimes, states he was sentenced to Life.
