Hi everyone I came across a case in the Criminal Jurisdiction index (Archives Office) of a Susannah ROBERTS who attacked a guy by the name of Randal McCallister with a couple of knives "Susanah Roberts did make an assault and harm the said Randall McCallister did grievioulsy beat, wound and ill treat him with two knives one in each hand"
This attack took place on the 10th of June 1815, Susannah Roberts late of Sydney Spinster.That's all it said though, now this could be one of the Susannah Roberts I have been researching, possibly my ancestor as the other Susannah/Susan Roberts was married in 1812 to Mr. William Hennessy.My one I believe didn't marry until July 1815 to John Rogers
Is there any way of following up on this at all, where wouldthe result be of this attack be recorded, would she have been imprisoned??I had a look in Trove under McCallister and Susannah Roberts but nothing that I could see.Would love to know outcome of this. Many thanks kind regards Dianna
