Martin Byron's impounded a horse at Chiltern on 13/2/1876 and in March of that year my house was burnt down

In about March 1879 Mrs Byrne went to see Arron Sherritt’s parents and accused him of spying for the police. She then charged Aaron with stealing a horse called Charlie which he had given to Joe Byrne's sister Kate a few years before. Aaron got off the charge. Mrs Ellen Byron gave evidence for Aaron Sherritt. (See RC14528 and RC12184)

On one occasion Arron Sherritt's mother said she received a letter from Mrs Byrne to go and see her, and Mrs. Byrne told her then that Joe Byrne and Dan Kelly called at the Black Dog Creek. Joe Byrne gave a letter to Mrs Byron to deliver it to Mrs Byrne. Mrs Byron, not being on good terms with Mrs. Byrne, she sent the letter by her husband to Mr Batchelor, who lives next door to Mrs Byrne. He delivered it to Mrs Byrne. Det Ward had enquiries made, and found that Mr Byron was at Batchelor's just about the time. (RC14190)
