The Bushrangers - Part 27 - Frank Gardiner's Exploits at Lambing Flat and Forbes

After the rescue of Manns and Darcey, Gilbert rejoined Gardiner, O'Meally, and others in the neighbourhood of the Weddin Mountains; and while the police of the district were engaged on the trials at the Special Commission in Sydney, Gardiner and his gang carried on their depredations, still pursuing their old plan of dividing forces and appearing alternately on the Lachlan and the Goulburn sides.

The Bushrangers - Part 26 - Eugowra Escort Trial - Evidence of Dan Charters, The Informer

The trial of the Eugowra escort robbers furnished the citizens of Sydney with one of the biggest sensations that had ever been provided for them in the criminal sphere, and very little else was talked about in the city during the several days over which it extended.

The Bushrangers - Part 23 - The Notorious Piesley - An Old Cockatoo Hand Out with Gardiner

From the very first of Gardiner's road adventures in the West he was associated in the police and press reports with another notorious criminal named Piesley, who was also an old Cockatoo hand.* Piesley had been sent to Cockatoo for cattle stealing, or a similar offence, and had either escaped before his sentence had expired or been released on a ticket-of-leave, as was Gardiner. He returned to where his parents lived, in the Abercrombie district. During the years 1860-1 many robberies…

The Bushrangers - Part 22 - "The King of the Road" - Exploits of Daring Frank Gardiner

The mere mention of the name of Frank Gardiner in any part of the Western or Southern districts of New South Wales was sufficient to set any of the residents in those districts in the early 1900s talking of the "old bushranging days". For Christie, alias Clarke, alias Gardiner, has been ever looked upon as the "father" of that bushranging which was followed by so many young men during the decade commencing in 1860.

The Bushrangers - Part 21 - The Last of the Port Arthur Convicts

Williams and Flanagan were old Van Demonian convicts. They were drawn to Port Phillip, or Victoria, as it was then being called in official circles, by the gold discovery, but, being averse to dig themselves and no doubt ashamed to beg, they sought to make an easy living by taking what others had earned. Their impudence and daring were conspicuously exemplified by a series of highway robberies on the St. Kilda Road.

The Bushrangers - Part 20 - Day, The Blacksmith Bushranger - Robbery of the Bathurst Mail

William Day was an old convict, sent to Van Diemen's Land from the old country under a heavy sentence. Having gained his liberty he made his way to New South Wales, and joined a motley crowd on the "rush" to the Turon goldfields. He settled at Sofala, where between blacksmithing and fossicking he managed to live in comparative comfort, it being generally understood in the locality that he had amassed quite a little fortune. But the old instinct was still apparently strong within him; he…

The Bushrangers - Part 19 - The Jew-Boy's Gang and The Robber of the Caves

One of the more notorious of the bushrangers of the forties was a convict Jew named Davis, who made his escape from an ironed gang working near Sydney, and "took the bush", being soon joined by a desperate character named Ruggy, an Irishman, and two other runaway prisoners. Shortly after the gang commenced operations in the Brisbane Water and Hunter River Districts, three recruits joined, the latest addition being a youth of weak intellect, who had been led away by Davis' florid descriptions…

The Bushrangers - Part 18 - "Scotchey", Witton & Co.

Between 1842 and 1844, two convicts named "Scotchey" and Witton absconded from Waugoola, and with others kept portions of the Lachlan district in a state of continual alarm by their outrages. They were wild, reckless, bloodthirsty fellows, and would stop at nothing to gain their ends.
