History[edit | edit source]

In February 1863, the publican's wife, Susan Brennand, testified at an inquest held at the Grand Junction Hotel, on the death of Thomas Crowley:

Susan Brennand, of Bungaree, deposed as follows- My husband keeps the Horse and Jockey Hotel. Never saw the deceased before last Saturday morning. He was in the bar about mid-day, just going to sleep. A Mr Underwood came in and the two men now present (Marr and Ryan) came into the bar. They never spoke to any one, but looked round and both fell upon the deceased, but Ryan let him go. Marr stuck to him, and ill-used him by kicking him and kneeling upon him. He kicked him about the mouth. Then Mr Underwood said "For God's sake don't kill the old man." Then Ryan took a stone out of his left hand pocket and struck Mr Underwood with it. It knocked Underwood down. Immediately after he took another stone out of his pocket and flung it at me. I dropped down behind the counter and it grazed the top of my head. Ryan then turned round on his heel and said to me "You ----- take that," and then ran away, both Marr and Ryan. I then went to the door and shouted murder. Deceased got up and told me he was not hurt, only his ribs. He remained about a quarter of an hour, and had a wash. He then went towards Mr Tonks'. He was not sober, but he could walk straight. I saw deceased dead very soon after in Lee's yard or stable. Soon after l saw Mr Hill arriving, and told him what Marr and Ryan had done to the deceased. I pointed them out to him, and he took them into custody.[1]

Crowley later attacked the local baker, George Duke Lee with a pitchfork, and was killed by another man, Thomas Rutherford, who hit him over the head with a plank.[1]
