See A History of Enfield: 1837 to 1914: A Victorian suburb by David Owen Pam
p45 The commissioners of the Metropolitan Police in 1835 had not extended their area of jurisdiction beyond Hackney and Newington, although the police patrols, like Watkin, a Waterloo man who lived in a wooden cottage in London Road.

On the east side of London Road, opposite the police station, stood the Patrol Cottages where there formerly lived patrolman Watkins, a Waterloo man, who became part of the Metropolitan Police force in 1836. which had met since 1873 in a room in Ordnance Road...

Burglary of Sir Henry Meux, Bart, at Theobald?s park, Herts.
On Monday morning the circumstances of the robbery was communicated to Watkins, an active officer belong to the mounted Bow Street patrol, stationed at Enfield, who pursued his inquiries about the two suspicious men, and by great perseverance traced them to their residence in Middlesex-street, Somers Town. On searching their houses Watkins found nearly the whole of the stolen property.

There are two possibilities for a Richard Watkins serving at Waterloo, taken from the Waterloo Medal roll (see National Archives). A Richard Watkins of the 1st Life Guards also received the Peninsular Medal with one clasp - Toulouse.

First name(s) Richard
Last name Watkin

First name(s) Richard
Last name Watkins
Year 1815
Rank Private
Regiment 6th (or INNISKILLING) DRAGOONS

The first one is likely to be correct because when Richard Watkin married Catherine Russell in 1816, the marriage was witnessed by a corporal in the 1st Life Guards. See notes relating to marriage.

COAL AT MOGGILL-
Mr. Lumsden has for some time past employed two Welsh miners in sinking a pit shaft at Moggill. They have already sunk beneath the level of the Brisbane, and have gone through a thin vein of most excellent coal, with strong indications of the presence of the mineral still deeper. The sinking will be continued, and the miners expect before long to find a thicker seam.

The Moreton Bay Courier Wed 15 Sep 1858
KILLED AT MOGILL
An inquest was held yesterday, at Moggill, by the Coroner, K. Cannan, Esq., on the body of a miner named Jones. The following evidence was taken :-Thomas Jones deposed : "l am the son of the deceased. I am a miner, my father was a miner ; have been fourteen months in Moreton Bay. I had been working with my father yesterday sinking a shaft. I was on the top, my father below ; he was boring for blasting the rock. About half-past one, I heard a loud explosion. I was at the top. There was nobody else below but my father. I went down into the pit in about two minutes. My father was sitting down on the side of the shaft. He said he was alive. There was too much smoke to see it all. I called for help. They came and lowered the bucket. I put my father into it, and he was drawn up. I then saw he was very much hurt. He lived till about half-past four, quite sensible all the tiime. No doubt the charge of powder had become ignited by hammering the needle down; such accidents often happen in Wales where we came from; it was not from carelessness. There was about three ounces of powder in the hole. My father has been working here nine months, and six months out of the mine been blasting." The jury returned a verdict of "accidental death".

CAUTION
The undersigned cautions the public not to give credit to his son Henry Phillips as he will not be answerable for the same.
JAMES PHILLIPS Feb 4 1839

The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser Wed 27 Feb 1839
A young man, named Henry Phillips, of respectable appearance and address, was brought up with a sailor, both being found sleeping in an unoccupied house in Elizabeth street, by Serjeant Higgins, on Sunday night. Phillips stated, that he was out of employment, and had no place to sleep in, but that he was going on board ship to work. Captain Innes observed, that it was a pity a young man of education, who had moved in a respectable sphere of life in the colony having once belonged to the Colonial Survey Department should be in such a miserable plight, but he (Captain Innes) feared, that the cause of his present destitution was the too prolific source of wretchedness in the Colony, namely,..the grog bottle, discharged, with a reprimand.

ASSAULT.
David William Ruddell, on bail, was brought up again to answer the charge of assaulting his father-in-law, John Gillespie, settler, residing between Kabra and Stanwell. Mr. Lyons appeared to prosecute, and Mr. Pattison to defend.
The Police Magistrate : How is Gillespie now?
Mr. Lyons : He is here, Your Worship, He called at Dr. Macdonald's this morning, but he was told be should not be able to see the doctor until half past ten o'clock. He does not know himself that he is any worse.
The Police Magistrate : Is he any better?
Gillespie : Yes, sir, I think I am. I don't feel ?.
The Police Magistrate: You don't feel ill?
Gillespie: I feel ill, but I don't think it's dangerous.
The Police Magistrate : I think we will deal with the case.

Counsel having addressed the Bench, and the magistrates having consulted for fully a quarter of an hour, the Police Magistrate said : David William Ruddell, having heard the evidence that has been given against you, and knowing as you must that you have not told the truth, you will not be surprised when I tell you we find you guilty. The assault was a cowardly one, and there is nothing we can see to justify you in lifting your hand to a man of the age of your father-in-law, and certainly not in using the weapon you did. However, in consideration of the fact that you have been imprisoned for a week, we will let you off with a further term of imprisonment of fourteen days. You will be imprisoned and kept to hard labour for fourteen days.
Ruddell : Your Worship says I have not told the truth. If I never see my God I have sworn the truth. The Police Magistrate : I have nothing more to say about it.

MOUNT MORGAN, January I.
A report was made to the police at half past two this morning that a man had been murdered at Mount Morgan West. On the police proceeding there they found the dead body of a man named David Ruddle, death having evidently resulted from a gunshot wound. A man named Hugh Grier, a miner, was arrested on a charge of having murdered Ruddle. Grier, who was once a hotelkeeper out west, is of a quiet disposition. Ruddle was a comparative stranger here. It is stated the two men met in a hotel, when Ruddle made some particularly insulting remark about Grier's wife. The body of the dead man was removed to the Morgue. Grier will appear at the Police Court on Monday.

Morning Bulletin Thursday 17 March 1898
The sitting of the Supreme Court in criminal jurisdiction was continued yesterday, when the case against Hugh Grier for the murder of David Ruddle was concluded. The jury after half an hour's deliberation found the prisoner not guilty, and he was discharged. The verdict was received with applause, which was at once suppressed by the officers of the Court.
