BUSHRANGERS AT CIRCULAR HEAD

Contains excerpts from the inquest held at Stag Farm into the death of Alfred Philips.
The Hobart Courier of the 28th September reported the victim of the murder was a young man named Alfred Philips a former letter carrier in Hobart and that he was on the “eve of marrying a respectable and amiable young lady“, which I have reason to believe was Ellen, the eldest daughter of John and Eliza.
HORRIBLE MURDER AT CIRCULAR HEAD Source: http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article2242400
On the evening of 14 Sep 1853 two ex Norfolk Island convicts determined to find the home of John Stagg House and rob him. They first went to the home of his brother Jonathan House, perhaps confused by the names.
THE CIRCULAR HEAD MURDERERS .- A reward of £200 and a conditional pardon has been offered for the capture of Henry Bradley and Patrick O'Connor, the ruffians who committed the cow- ardly murder at Circular Head. Of this sum, £100 is offered by the Crown, and £100 by the inhabitants of the District.
Three days later the schooner 'Sophia" with the culprits on board landed in the Western Port District of Victoria from whence they commenced to commit "many diabolical outrages in different parts of the colony" which included the shooting near Brighton of a ploughman and the theft of two plough horses as well as the shooting of a gardener near Kilmore. On the 27th September they were finally caught, having in an exchange of gun fire, shot a policeman the previous day.
They were tried in Melbourne on October 19 for the shooting of the policeman and hanged on the 24th in front of Melbourne goal.
O'Connor was 23 years of age and Bradley 21
Joyce Davison, wife of George (grandson of Matilda House) recalled one of her husband's aunts telling of how her mother recounted bush rangers coming to the house when she was young. Apparently the old woman was unable to talk about the incident without crying.
Lottie and Bill reunited circa 1959
