Early years Insp Montfort explained my relationship to Patrick Quinn.(RC3212) Teenage years First run in with the law Some might say that I have an impressive criminal record. When they want to get you, that will get you.

On 30/9/1860 I was charged with charged with violent assault - and sentenced to 6 weeks in Kilmore

On 30/8/1861 I was charged with horse stealing - discharged in the Clunes court

On 29/03/1862 I was charged with violent assault but discharged in the Kilmore court

In February 1864 I was charged with horse stealing at Beechworth and sentenced to 12 months see (RCApp10)

I was accused of strucking William Skelton a violent blow on the head with a bullock yoke in 1865(Ensign4/10/1872).(Argus4/10/72) (Argus8/10/72)

I was accused of assaulting Const Hall (Argus30/8/70)

I was arrested (Argus1/9/71)

I was supposed to be the murderer of Ah Woo at Myrtleford in 1871. It was another James Quinn, he was executed (Argus11/9/71) (Argus17/10/71) (Argus11/11/71) (Argus14/11/71)

I was done for assaulting my sister Margaret Quinn.(Ensign19/4/1872)

Jack Quinn and I, lived on the Black Range Creek

Fitzpatrick Incident 15/04/1878 I was with Mrs Kelly on the night of 16/4/1878 when Sgt Steele and his party came to arrest her. (RC8821) Gold mining and making whiskey near Stringy Bark Creek

Mansfield Murders 26/10/1878 I was in the Beechworth gaol undergoing a sentence of three months’ imprisonment for a violent assault on a man at the recent Benalla agricultural show. (Argus11/11/78) Escape north Euroa Robbery 10/12/1878 Mass arrest of the sympathizers On 2/1/1879 Commissioner Standish ordered the arrest of about 20 sympathizers including my self. He took that action under section 5 of the Felons Apprehension Act. Most of the sympathizers were held in Beechworth goal.

I was arrested near Benalla by ... He had been staying at Mrs Kelly's old home at about this time (Argus4/1/79) (Argus6/1/79) (OMA7/1/1879)

We were held without ever being given a chance to defend them selves. We were remanded in custody for periods of 7 days. Only one of the sympathizers was effectively represented by a lawyer. The magistrates repeated the remands each week for over 3 months before the sympathizers were finally released. See (OMA11/2/1879) (OMA13/3/79) (Argus26/2/79) (OMA27/2/79)

At the start, the arrests had public support in Melbourne but that turned into general contempt for the police. The mass arrests resulted in fewer people being prepared to assist the police or to supply information about the KellyGang

Jerilderie Robbery 10/2/1879 I may have dealt with Jacob Wilson for assisting the police (RC4457) Later in 1879 There was a report that on the night in June when Const Gascoigne and his seach party came into the Strathbogie Ranges I got four bottles of brandy from a local pub (RC9614 ) Early in 1880 Jacob Wilson says that John Hart and I gave him a hard time on 3 April. I dont think that we did, but even so he was breaking the law. You can hear his version if that interests you; the ranting of an old man. (RC4457) Glenrowan Siege 28/6/1880 Was I at the siege?
