Sir Edward Poore, 3rd baronet
Sir Edward died in November 1893. On 4 January 1894, the following article was published in 
'The West Australian,' under the heading "Extraordinary Career of a Baronet":-
'A recent issue of the [Melbourne] Age gives the following account of a miner who died on 
board the steamer Adelaide at Fremantle, recently, and whose papers and effects showed
him to be Sir Edward Poore, Bart.
'When the steamer Adelaide on her last trip to West Australia reached Fremantle, one of the
saloon passengers, a miner, who gave the name of Edward Poore, died in his cabin suddenly
of heart disease. He had sufficient warning of his approaching end to call the steward to bring
him pen, ink and paper, and to write down an address in Victoria to which the news of his 
death should be sent, but he had barely finished when he fell back dead. No one knew the 
man, and the authorities buried him in Fremantle.
'When the news of Poore's death reached his friends in Melbourne his papers and effects
were examined, and they showed beyond all doubt that the deceased was Sir Edward Poore,
baronet, of Rushall, in the county of Wiltshire, England. He was the third baronet, and
succeeded his father on the 13th of October, 1838, being then only 12½ years of age, as
he was born on 6th March, 1826. When he was 18 years of age he was appointed an ensign 
in the Scotch Fusilier Guards, a crack regiment, but he retired four years later. Shortly before
he attained his 25th year he married Miss Frances Elizabeth Moody, daughter of the Rev. 
Henry Riddell Moody, rector of Chatham [sic for Chartham], Kent. In the following year he
made a voyage to Canada, and a son [who later became the 4th baronet] was born to him
there. In 1860 he was in France, as is shown by a passport which bears his signature, a
singularly striking one, and showing little or no alteration from autographs which he executed
not many weeks ago. In 1863 a son, Herbert, was born to him, and subsequently there were
two daughters, Elsie and Catherine; but since then Burke's Peerage is silent to the family
history - chiefly, it may be presumed, because Poore exiled himself from England about that
period. Some time in the early part of the seventies he appeared in Australia. As he admitted
afterwards to others with whom he had become confidential, but never to the extent of
disclosing his real identity, he had left England because he had abandoned his wife and
children, and thrown in his lot with a woman with whom he was infatuated.
'His early days in Australia were devoted to a lavish expenditure of money, no luxury being too
gross for him. Thousands of pounds were squandered in jewellery, especially diamonds, for 
which, right through his colonial career, he manifested an insatiable passion. One single 
diamond that he carried in a ring was of such value that a pawnbroker in the city readily
advanced £100 upon it. This sort of life soon exhausted his supply of ready cash, so he 
embraced the contracting business. His early military training had imbued him with a certain
amount of knowledge of the business of bridge building, son in his contracting efforts he
confined himself almost entirely to that class of work. He threw off entirely the grandiose air
of an English aristocrat, and assimilated himself to the conditions of his new life. A photograph
of himself, taken on one the bridges he was erecting, shows him with a slouched hat and
moleskin trousers, and under the picture, in his own handwriting, is written, "Ned, the Pile
Driver."  There appears to have been a stress in his money matters which stopped his
contracting career and he became an ordinary day labourer, but he again emerged from that
state into affluence. Money flowed in plentifully, and he then sought out as a confidential man,
Mr. Adolphus Dunn, of Malvern, and through him the greater part of his future business was
contracted. Hotel keeping was his next hobby, and he took the Armadale Hotel, at Armadale 
[Malvern and Armadale are both suburbs of Melbourne], but the venture cost him about  
£5,000. Better luck attended him whilst he had the Grace Darling Hotel, in Elizabeth-street
[Melbourne], which he bought into after leaving Armadale; but he only made both ends meet,
so he gave it up and took the New Brighton Hotel, at Lady Robinson's Beach, Sydney, and in 
six months, by dint of terrible bad management and extravagance, he lost £2,000. That was
his last venture as a publican. For all his 68 years he was very energetic, and the news of the
gold finds at Coolgardie allured him to West Australia. As usual, he adapted himself with great
facility to the circumstances in which he found himself, and was soon as much a miner as the
hundreds that surrounded him. He went out to the gold-fields and prospected. He discovered
a reef, hastened to Perth, took up a mineral lease, and then left for Melbourne to form a
company which would supply machinery and work the claim. All the speculators to whom he
put the matter required too large a share in the mine for Poore's tastes, so he bought
machinery himself, and left by the Adelaide for Perth on the 14th November, taking the
machinery with him, but he died as already stated on the 23rd November, just as the Adelaide
reached Fremantle.
'In all his dealings with people in the colonies Poore never disclosed his rank, except to one
person, his medical adviser, Mr. Fitzgerald; but of late years he had taken to impressing his
crest, a cubit arm, grasping in the hand an arrow, upon all cheques which he signed. One
occasion on which Poore was recognised is mentioned by a friend of his, who was with him
one day in Collins-street [Melbourne]. The friend whilst talking to Poore met a third party,
whom he introduced to Mr. Poore. The stranger looked straight at the man to whom he was
presented, and said, "Ha, Mr. Poore ! Only Mr. Poore?" The latter replied, "Yes; isn't that
enough? What more would you want?" Then in reply to questions by the stranger Poore said
that he had never been in England, and that he did not know Chartham in Kent - the town,
it will be remembered, of which his father-in-law was rector. 
'Among the papers of the deceased is a diary of his life, which has not yet been looked into,
but there are evidences among the collections of articles in his trunks that he had given
unbridled scope to his passions, and to that alone he owed his many reverses. It is not at 
present clear how Poore raised the money of which he got possession from time to time, but
it is believed by Mr. Dunn, his confidential man, that he disposed of some of his estates. It 
is not known whether Lady Poore is living [she was, and lived on until 1926], or whether she
obtained a divorce when her husband left her. The deceased made a[n incorrect] statement
on one occasion that his eldest son Richard, who would have been his heir, died some years 
ago, but there is no certainty about it. Should it prove correct, the heir, according to Burke's
Peerage, would be his son Herbert who was born in 1863, and he will succeed to the title and
and what is left of the estates [but Richard, being still alive, became the 4th baronet]. If the
mine in West Australia proves of any value then the new baronet may be able to rehabilitate
the estates.'
Sir Frederick William Pottinger, 2nd baronet
Frederick was the son of Sir Henry Pottinger, who had received a baronetcy as a reward
for a distinguished career as a colonial governor. His son, however, did not follow in his
father's footsteps and, by 1856, was in deep financial straits. His income did not allow him
to keep pace with his free-spending brother officers in the Grenadier Guards; bookmakers 
and tradesmen were plaguing him for payment of his debts. His fortunes changed somewhat
when he won £500 on a lucky bet on a horse and, determined that his bothersome creditors
were not going to share a penny of his good fortune, he packed his bags, resigned his
commission and caught the next ship from England to Australia.
Because the social circles of Sydney were now closed to him, he set off for the goldfields,
where he had no luck. Tiring of digging for gold, he joined the New South Wales police
as a mounted trooper. Not long after, he heard that his father had died but, since there
was little in the way of money or estates to inherit, and enjoying the open-air life of a 
trooper, he decided to remain where he was, without telling anyone that he was now a 
baronet.
In May 1861, a letter arrived in Sydney addressed to Sir Frederick Pottinger, care of the
Police Department. No one had heard of a Sir Frederick Pottinger, but when the Department's
records were checked, a Trooper Fred Pottinger stationed at the Lambing Flat (now Young) 
goldfield was discovered. He was immediately ordered to Sydney, where he admitted that he
was a baronet. Since it was unseemly that a baronet was a lowly trooper, he was immediately
promoted to Inspector and placed in charge of the whole southern district of New South Wales,
with headquarters at Young and with 100 men under his command.
Meanwhile, the country around the goldfields was the natural habitat of bushrangers (roughly
analogous to British 'highwaymen' or American 'western outlaws'), of whom the most prominent
was Frank Gardiner. Pottinger received urgent orders to clean them out of the area. He 
immediately arrested a squatter named Ben Hall, who was to later become somewhat of a
folk hero in Australia, in the same manner as, say, Dick Turpin or Butch Cassidy. Pottinger
ridiculed Hall's protestations of innocence and threw him into gaol, where he was held for
months before being tried and acquitted. By the time he was released, Hall's wife had deserted
him and his property was ruined through neglect. Thereafter Hall nursed an implacable hatred
of the police in general and Pottinger in particular, and he became a member of Gardiner's gang
of bushrangers. 
On 13 June 1862, Gardiner and eight men, including Hall, held up, at Eugowra Rocks, a stage 
coach laden with gold from the diggings bound for Sydney. Several policemen were wounded in
the hold-up and around £14,000 in gold and banknotes were stolen. Pottinger quickly organised
a posse to give chase. He split his forces into two, commanded by himself and Sergeant 
Sanderson. Sanderson's force, while losing their quarry, recovered half of the loot. Pottinger's
party caught up with three of Gardiner's gang and captured two of them, but the third, Johnny
Gilbert, escaped, but not before Pottinger had recovered £1000 of the amount stolen. With his
two prisoners, Pottinger set out for Forbes, 150 miles away. 
Meanwhile, Gilbert had galloped to Gardiner's hideout and, once there, a rescue party was
organised. Gardiner's men ambushed Pottinger's party the next morning and rescued their
comrades. Pottinger got away into the surrounding bushland, where, realising he still had the
£1000, he decided his duty was to save it, so he galloped away, leaving his men to their fate.
His men, however, were not harmed by the bushrangers who, having achieved their aim, fled
into the surrounding scrub.
In order to regain his lost prestige, Pottinger began an all-out war against the bushrangers. He
led strong parties into the surrounding ranges and tracked down their hideouts. He bullied 
farmers into acting as spies and burned Ben Hall's old homestead to the ground. From an 
informer, he discovered that Frank Gardiner paid regular visits to his mistress, Kitty Brown, at 
her cottage near Wheogo. One night, after dark, Pottinger and eight men quietly surrounded 
the house. A horse was heard approaching and when only about five yards from him, Pottinger 
fired a shot at the rider but missed. It was, indeed, Gardiner, who immediately fled. Pottinger 
then entered Kitty Brown's cottage, where he ordered his men to arrest Kitty's 15-year-old 
brother.
Two contemporary ballads commemorate this event…
     Up started then Sir Fred and his men,
     With cocked carbine in hand,
     And called aloud on the 'ranger proud
     On pain of death to stand.
     But the 'ranger proud he laughed aloud.
     And bounding rode away,
     While Sir Frederick Pott shut his eye for a shot,
     And missed in the usual way.
     In slumber sound a boy they found,
     And brave Sir Frederick said,
     'By a flash in the pan we missed the man
     So we'll take the boy instead!'
Smarting under such attacks, Pottinger redoubled his efforts to break the Gardiner gang. He
arrested a young stockman , 'Flash Dan' Charters who admitted to being present at the
Eugowra Rocks robbery and implicated nine other local men, who were quickly rounded up
and sent to Sydney for trial at which six of the prisoners were acquitted, two given life
sentences and the remaining man was hanged.
Although these arrests did not stop the outlaws, the country became a little quieter, but
Ben Hall and Johnny Gilbert were still around to plague Pottinger. In January 1865, Pottinger
arranged to ride a friend's horse at a race meeting to be held at Wowingragong, near Forbes.
Hearing of this, Hall and Gilbert vowed to attend the meeting and shoot Pottinger as he rode
in the race. Pottinger was warned of their presence but made excuses to do nothing to
capture them. Pottinger was branded a coward by a local settler, who wrote a lengthy
complaint to Police headquarters in Sydney.
As a result of this complaint, Pottinger was suspended from duty and called to Sydney to face
an inquiry. Crossing the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, the coach in which Pottinger was
travelling stopped for refreshments at Wascoe's Inn, near Springwood. Pottinger volunteered
to get the lady passengers some peaches from an adjacent orchard. When the coachman 
called out 'All aboard!', Pottinger came running with his bag of fruit. To save time, and no doubt
to also impress the ladies, he tried to vault the fence but fell and crashed heavily to the 
ground. An elaborate silver-mounted pistol he carried in his breast pocket exploded and a bullet 
ploughed into his chest. He was rushed to Sydney where he died on 9 April 1865.
What of the other main characters in this story?
Ben Hall was betrayed, ambushed and shot and killed by police on 5 May 1865. Johnny Gilbert
suffered a similar fate on 13 May 1865. Frank Gardiner was luckier - he had been captured in
1864 and sentenced to 32 years' in prison. After serving ten years, he was granted an early
release provided he left the country. He went to the US where he is believed to have died in
Colorado around 1904, the only Australian, as far as I know, to ever be exiled from his own 
country.
Sir Charles Pym, 2nd baronet
Sir Charles died as a result of being run through by a rapier following an argument in a tavern
on 4 May 1688. A contemporary pamphlet, published on 1 June 1688, gives the following
details of the indictment and the facts of Sir Charles's death:-
'[The] Clerk [read the indictment]: You Gentlemen of the Jury, look upon the Prisoners at the
Bar, and hearken to their Charge, they stand Indicted by the names of Rowland Walters,
Dearing Bradshaw and Ambrose Cave, Gent. for that they, not having the fear of God before
their eyes, but being instigated and seduced by the Devil and their own wicked hearts, on the
fourth day of May, in the Fourth year of the Reign of our Sovereign Lord King James the
Second, in the Parish of St. Nicholas Cole-Abby, in and upon Sir Charles Pymm, Bar., 
Feloniously, willfully, and of their malice before thought, did make an Assault; and that he,
the said Rowland Walters, having then and there in his right hand, a certain Rapier made of
Iron and Steel, of the value of about 5 s[hillings] and thrust him the said Sir Charles Pymm in
and upon the right side of him the said Sir Charles Pymm, a little above the right Pap, did
strike and thrust as aforesaid, giving him the said Sir Charles Pymm, a little above the right 
Pap, one mortal Wound of the breadth of one Inch, of the depth of ten Inches; and that they
the said Dearing Bradshaw and Ambrose Cave, were present, aiding, abetting, and assisting
him the said Rowland Walters in the perpetration of the said wilful Murther of him the said Sir
Charles Pymm; so that they three, the Prisoners at the Bar, with malice fore-thought, did 
intentionally Kill and Destroy, and Murther him the said Sir Charles Pymm…………'
The actual details of the killing were outlined to the Court as follows:-
'My Lords, this Murther fell out on the fourth day of May last after this manner, viz. The said
Sir Charles Pymm, one Mr. Mirriday and Mr. Neale, and Sir Thomas Middleton and others
dined at the Swan Tavern upon Fish-street-hill; after they were come into the House, they
went up stairs, after which the Prisoners at the Bar came into the House, and took another
Room to Dine of Beef and other things. But one of Sir Charles's Company desired to have a 
Plate of it; upon which Mr. Clowdsley told them some Gentlemen had bespoke it for Dinner,
but he said he would get them a Plate of it, which was sent up, and ordered to be reckoned
into Mr. Walters the Prisoners Bill; after Dinner they drank their Healths, and returned them
thanks for their Beef; and towards the Evening Sir Charles Pymm and his Friends came down
stairs and met the Prisoners at the bottom, and Mr. Cave asked them how they liked the 
Beef that was sent up; upon which one in the company answered , and told them, they did
not send it, for they had paid for it; upon which farther words arose, and Mr. Bradshaw drew
his Sword and fell upon Sir Charles Pymm, but he got out into the Streets, after which Mr.
Walters came forth, and plucked Sir Charles Pymm by the arms, and forced him to fight with
him, saying, here is my hand, and here is my Sword; and as soon as he was in the Street,
he received this mortal Wound, and so fell down dead; and after this Mr. Walters took him
by the nape of the neck, and dashed his head upon the ground and cried out, God Damn you,
you are dead; and said farther, let the Sword alone in his body. My Lords, this shall be
proved to be done, without any manner of provocation; and if so, I hope your Lordships
will find him guilty of willful Murther.'
Because the prosecution were unable to satisfy the Court that the prisoners had acted
with premeditation (the Judge described the incident as a "hot and sudden Frolick"), Walters
was found guilty of manslaughter only, and the other two prisoners were acquitted.
