Thanks to TM – we now have letters from Rev Fulton at Castlereagh House in 1822 and 1824 – in which he gives details of the transactions between himself and Patrick McNally. Seems Major Druitt who was chief engineer for the Colony, had contracted Patrick to build a fence around Rev Fulton’s Glebe. Fulton had a school called CASTLEREAGH HOUSE.

This fence building contract led to trouble with Patrick and others being accused of stealing 5 pigs. Patrick was to be acquitted of this crime but on reading further into it – it appears that he spent a least some time in County Gaol as a result , that financial difficulties were experienced by Judith and the children and that it resulted in their leaving the Hawkesbury and moving into Sydney Town. The illustration below from the Western Sydney Libraries is not what  I expected. I expected a two storey grand residence but there it is. Now Patrick was to build the fence but somewhere in that happening came the ” pig stealing” from Mr John Harris , a settler.

Who knows what happened ? Who knows what it led to ?

In the interest of the Poet who is Melinda, this does in all probability place her near the ACADEMY which housed Charles Tompson Jnr. The Native Minstrel, a boy born in the colony as was Melinda and of a similar age to her brother and sister William and Mary.
