Jonathan Lock was convicted of stealing, on the 16th Dec. last, three geese, the property of John Smith, of Larling, farmer. The prisoner was further convicted, jointly with his son, Robert Lock, of having stolen, on the 31st of December last, a pig, belonging to Mary Ann Towler, of Rockland All Saints. And the said Robert Lock was also further convicted of stealing three planes, from William Cocking, of Great Ellingham, on the 1st of March last. The Jury recommended Robert Lock to mercy, which the Court intimated they could not listen to, in consequence of his being an old offender. Both were sentenced to seven years' transportation. There were other indictments against the prisoners, which were abandoned.

Marriage
Text:

On 26 January 1824, Maria married carpenter Robert Lock at St John's church, Parramatta, the first official Aboriginal- British marriage in the colony. The marriage was even more unusual in that Robert, an illiterate convict, was assigned to Maria. In addition the couple were promised a grant of land and a cow. It required many years of struggle with the colonial administration, for Maria to get the promised land. In the meantime she and her husband settled on the land of the Native Institution at Blacktown.
