Links to the KellyGang

Murders at Stringy Bark Creek at Wombat Creek 26/10/1878 Sup Sadleir did not know me at this time (RC1883) Autum 1879 Hare visited me on several occasions in the two or three months before he left. I gave him some good information. He saw me as the most reliable men he knew. (RC1404)

Hare said that I did not come from Beechworth (RC1440)

Nicolson replaced by Hare 2/6/1880 I wrote a number of letters to Ass Com Nicolson dated, 26/2/1880, 14/5/1880, and 20/5/1880. (RC2597) see also text (RC755) (RC2991)

One of my letters informing about the KellyGang making armour was sent to Sup Hare /Nicolson on 20/5/ 1880. (RC2nd reportXIII) (See also RC950) (JJK)

Nicolson kept a number of my letters when he left Benalla (RC1444)

Death of Aaron Sherritt 26/6/1880 On 25/6/1880 I went to visit Hare in Benalla and told him about the KellyGang and that they were likely to break out soon and about them making armour.(RC16566) Glenrowan Siege 28/6/1880


I wrote to Ass Com Nicolson on 13/7/1880 and again on 16/3/1881. (RC2997)

CB William's (not William Charles Balfour) application for a share of the reward was rejected by the reward Board but they recommended that he was worthy of special recognition for services rendered during the period of the search for the outlaws. There is no other reference to 'CB William' on this site

I was in fear and terror later on. (RCApp1)
