Abraham commenced the voyage on Wednesday the 2nd May 1838 and arrived at Sydney Cove on Saturday the 15th September 1838 and disembarked from the ship on Tuesday the 18th September 1838,the voyage taking a total of 4 months and 16 days.

    Log Commences
    APRIL 1838
    On the 22nd April 1838, I was appointed by Lord Glenelg (Secretary of State for the Colonies),as Surgeon Superintendent of the Emigrant ship "Woodbridge" bound for Sydney. Being completed with water and provisions the ship was dropped down from Deptford to Gravesend the 22nd of same (April),then the following day,76 persons were embarked and 61 more on the 24th completing the number to be taken on board in the river (Thames). They were chiefly farm labourers from the counties of Sussex and Kent and generally healthy,but a few of the children had a pustular eruption on the face,said by the parents to have taken place after vaccination. In the afternoon of the 25th we got under weigh and again anchored in the sea reach,the winds becoming unfavourable and blowing strong. 26th 4.00pm got up anchor and made sail in the evening,the wind and the tide being against us,the ship was brought up at Mole. At noon on the 27th again weighed anchor,made all sails and having a fair breeze the ship came to anchor off Cowes,Isle of Wight at 11am on the 28th April. On the 2nd May embarked 130 emigrants from Wiltshire,the greater number of these were also farm servants and married with families.The day after the last came aboard I found out that some of the children were suffering from whooping cough,but with one exception, of a mild character. No means could be adopted for the separation from the healthy and I am happy to say no serious consequences followed. Only a few cases subsequently occurred and these were very mild requiring some medical treatment. On the 7th May at 7.00am weighed and made all sail running through The Needles with a modest breeze and fine weather.

    MAY 1838
    During the month of May the weather was fine with moderate breezes. The thermometer averaged at noon,63 degrees,maximum 83 degrees,in latitude 7 degrees north,minimum 50 degrees off Cowes,nine days of which rain fell,chiefly near the equator and in heavy showers of short duration. Winds were 7 days NE,1 day NEbE,1 day NNE,I day NW,I day NNW,3 days SW,1 day SSE,1 day SEbE,3 days E,1 day EbS,7 days ENE,I day EbN,3 days variable with calms. 48 cases were put on the sick list principally obstipatic and dysenteric. Many of the females suffered much from sea sickness,of whom 30 were cured and two children died,one of inanition and the other from dysentery.

    JUNE 1838
    June for the most part ,fine with moderate and variable winds.Thermometer averaged 77 degrees,maximum 85 degrees in a latitude 4 north,minimum 66 degrees in latitude 28 degrees south. 17 days of which rain fell in heavy transient showers with occasional thunder and lightning. Winds 1 day NE,9 days SE,3 days SSE,1 day SEbE and 13 days variable with calms. Added to the sick list 55,cured 54,two children died of dysentery,the same diseases prevailed as the last month.

    JULY 1838 July,on the 21st of this month,finding the bowel affections continuing on unabated and also with symptoms of scurvy making their appearance,I judged it necessary for the benefit of the health of the emigrants to put into some port to enable me to procure fresh provisions. Accordingly I wrote to the Master of the ship requesting him to take her to the nearest convenient harbour for that purpose. On the same day we arrived at Simmons Bay,Cape of Good Hope,where I purchased 2501 pounds of beef and mutton and half that quantity of mixed vegetables,having also taken on board 8 tons of water. No fruit was available. We proceeded on our passage on the 26th. The weather this month was more unsettled,the winds being stronger and a good deal of thick foggy atmosphere. The29th and the 30th days were particularly thick and muggy with torrents of rain and much thunder and lightning, which so injured our remaining fresh beef that a survey was held upon it and 887 pounds were thrown overboard,being unfit for use. The thermometer averaged 60 2/3 degrees,maximum 66 degrees at 29 degrees south latitude,minimum 56 degrees in the latitude 34 degrees south. Nine days of rain fell with the exception of the two days stated above in moderate passing showers. 34 were added to the sick list,32 cured and 4 died,3 children of dysentery and 1 of aptha of the mouth and fauces.

    AUGUST 1838
    August,the weather was very unsettled and the decks were wet ,but no injurious effects to the health of the people. The sick list,remarkably diminished since the issue of fresh provisions. Thermometer averaged 53 degrees,maximum 64 degrees in latitude 39 south ,minumum 49 degrees in latitude 38 south. 19 days of rain fell in transient but heavy showers with occasional hail. The winds chiefly westerly,suddenly shifting around to the north and south,blowing strong with occasional gales and thick weather. The winds were 2 days N,2 days NNE,1 day NE,4 days NW,2 days NNW,2 days NWbW,8 days WNW,2 days WSW,3 days WbS,2 days SSW,1 day SW and 1 day variable and calm. 16 were added to the sick list,19 cured and a married female died from the debilitating effects of sea sickness.

    SEPTEMBER 1838
    September,on the 15th,the Woodbridge anchored in Sydney Cove and the morning of the 18th,the emigrants were disembarked. With the exception of one child,all were healthy. The weather this month was generally fine,with light and moderate breezes,no rain. The Thermometer averages 50 1/2 degrees,maximum 67 degrees in Sydney Cove,minimum 48 degrees in latitude 40 south. 2 added to sick list,29 discharged,one of whom was a married woman died of dysentery.
    The Sydney Gazette dated Tuesday 18 September 1838 in the Ships News Column stated:"The emigrant ship Woodbridge is a vessel well adapted for the conveyance of settlers to our shores,her between decks,being more than seven feet in height,and very spacious. The emigrants on board appear to be in a mostly healthy state,and their berths and other accommodation do great credit to the commanding officers on board,and also the Surgeon Superintendent,Alexander Stewart,Esq.,R.N. The only deaths on board this vessel during her passage were eight young children.(In actual fact the deaths were 8 children and 2 married women). Messrs R.Campbell & Co.are her Agents.The emigrants will be landed this day,and as they are principally agricultural labourers,there will be a good opportunity for the settlers to provide themselves with such as they may require." The article went on to say the Woodbridge was due to leave Sydney Cove in about a fortnight.

    Saturday 20 February 1847
    SHEEP STEALING.
    Patrick Gannon was charged with stealing 157 sheep, on the 15th May, 1846, the property of Dr. Mitchell, of Sydney, from Stanope, near Black Creek.
    Mr. Purefoy appeared for the prisoner, and made an application for the postponement of the trial, on the ground that several material witnesses for the defence had been unable to attend, and he had affidavits to prove all proper exertion had been made to ensure their attendance. He was instructed to state that had these witnesses been in attendance, he could have proved that the prisoner spent the whole of May in Sydney, and could not therefore have stolen the sheep near Black Creek, above a hundred miles from Sydney.
    The Attorney General opposed the application, on the ground that he had already consented to one postponement of this case from Friday last to that day, and surely four days were ample to get up witnesses from Sydney. By a postponement till the next Sydney Circuit Court, as applied for, the crown would be put to a great deal of unnecessary trouble and expense, and possibly the ends of justice defeated by the impossibility of again getting all the crown witnesses together.
    His Honor dismissed the application.
    The Attorney General having detailed the principal features of the case, called Richard Hetherington, who deposed that he was overseer to Dr. Mitchell, on his station called Stanhope, near Black Creek. About two or three days prior to the 17th May, 1846, he counted the sheep on the station ; on that day he was at Lothbury, the head station , when he received information of some sheep having been stolen. He went to Black Creek, and from thence constable Smith accompanied him to Morpeth, where they arrived about nine o'clock in the evening of that day, and proceeded to Mr. Chapman's, a butcher there, where he picked out 58 of the stolen sheep. The next morning he saw the sheep at the Maitland police office, where constable M'Guinness gave 154 of them up to him. He did not on the 18th see the parties at Morpeth in whose possession the others were.
    Henry Smith deposed that he apprehended the prisoner at Black Creek ; prisoner said he was going to Beardy Plains, New England ; he said he knew nothing of the sheep.
    Michael Chapman deposed that he was a butcher, living at Morpeth; witness's father was also a butcher there ; his father purchased 58 sheep on the 16th or 17th of May last; witness recollected Mr. Hetherington coming next day ; it was between ten and eleven on the morning of Saturday when witness's father bought the sheep ; he bought them from prisoner at the bar, who gave his name as John Healy ; witness was positive as to his identity ; 3s. each was the price paid for them ; witness thought that a high price for such sheep as they were ; witness wrote out a receipt, to which prisoner put his mark, and his father then paid the money, 8 14s. ; witness then put the receipt in a drawer. Witness had never seen prisoner before.
    Cross-examined : As soon as the prisoner had put his mark to the receipt, witness's father paid the money, and witness put the receipt into a drawer, no one touching the paper but him- self and the prisoner ; the name, Anthony Chapman, now on the receipt was not in his handwriting, nor did he know how it came there. He could not remember from whom
    they had bought the last lot of sheep previous to purchasing those ; 3s. was a fair price for them. He never said he did not know the man again. He saw him the same afternoon as he was going towards Maitland. After that he did not see him till October last, at the police
    office.
    Anthony Chapman deposed that he was a butcher, living at Morpeth, and was the father of the last witness ; witness recollected buying sheep on 16th May last; he bought 58, at 3s. each; the prisoner at the bar was the man witness bought them from ; it was between eight and nine o'clock in the morning when he came, and he was enquiring the way to the boiling down establishment, and saying that as he had lost the steamer for Sydney he should drive the sheep there and sell them for what he could get ; witness asked what he would sell some to him for; prisoner said 3s. per head ; witness turned the sheep into his yard, and picked out 58, out of about 150. Witness paid prisoner 8 10s. for the sheep witness's son drawing up a receipt, to which prisoner put his mark, and then witness took the receipt into his shop, and placed it on a file. Witness wrote his name on the receipt at the time, without any particular motive. Witness gave up the sheep at the police office the next Monday morning, having assisted the constable to drive them up.
    Cross-examined : On his oath, witness never said to any one he should not again know the man he bought the sheep of ; witness never saw prisoner after the sale till he saw him in the police office, and he then knew him again immediately ; no one ever said anything to witness about the danger of receiving stolen property.
    John Duggin deposed that he lived at Morpeth, and was a dealer in horses, pigs, cows, and other matters ; about four in the afternoon of the 16th May, he met the prisoner in the bush at the back of Morpeth, driving sheep ; prisoner asked him the way to the boiling down establishment, and said he had missed the steamer, and would sell the sheep for what he could get ; witness asked their price, and he said he had sold 53 to Mr. Chapman for 3s. per head, and would sell to him for 2s. 9d. ; witness picked out fifteen sheep, and prisoner then said he should have the remainder, 83 in number, at 2s. 3d. No one was present. The sheep were delivered to witness at Mr. Davis's yards, in Morpeth, witness assisting in driving them in. Mr. Ingall witnessed the payment of the money to prisoner.
    Cross-examined : Witness never saw prisoner before ; he was sure it was on Saturday, the 16th May ; prisoner told witness he would take 6d. less than Mr. Chapman had paid him ; witness never bought sheep before. Witness had attended sheep sales before, but could not remember what he saw them sell for ; in all, 98 sheep were delivered and paid for altogether ; witness resold 15 to Davis at 4s. each ; and 83 to Burgess at 2s. 9d. each. Witness considered he paid dear enough for the sheep. Witness paid prisoner in Mr. Ingall's presence, at Hook's public-house, soon after the delivery. Witness learned from Michael Quin that the sheep had been stolen, and witness gave information to the district constable. Witness had never said he should not know the man again if he saw him ; witness would swear the prisoner was the man.
    Thomas Ingall deposed that he was overseer to Mr. Close, of Morpeth ; witness recollected Duggin buying sheep one Saturday morning, in May last ; witness knew they were afterwards given up ; Duggin met witness, and told him he had been buying sheep ; witness walked with him to Davis's yard, and saw the sheep there, and the prisoner at the bar sitting in the midst of them ; witness did not then speak to the prisoner, but in the afternoon Duggin called witness into a room in Hook's public house, where he found prisoner ; and Duggin, writing out a receipt, paid prisoner 10 odd for the sheep, to which prisoner put his mark, and witness his name as witness.
    William Burgess deposed that he was a publican at Hinton. In May last he was a butcher, and bought sheep from Duggin on the 16th or 17th, on a Saturday ; to the best of witness's belief prisoner was then with the sheep, as if he were the shepherd.
    James M'Guinness deposed that he was district constable at Morpeth ; witness recollected getting some sheep on Sunday, 17th May last, claimed by the witness Hetherington as being Dr. Mitchell's ; witness got 58 from Anthony Chapman, 83 from William Burgess, and 14 from Davis ; witness took possession of them the following morning.
    This closed the case for the prosecution.
    Mr. Purefoy raised an objection that there was no distinct proof that the sheep sworn to by Hetherington at the police office were the same as those sold by some person to Duggin
    and Chapman.
    His Honor overruled the objection.
    Mr. Purefoy, in addressing the jury for the defence, said he did so under great embarrasment. From what had passed at the commencement of the trial, the jury were aware that the prisoner laboured under peculiar disadvantages, from not having been able to procure, in time, several witnesses who could distinctly have proved the impossibility of his being guilty of stealing the sheep. He had no hesitation in telling them that his defence would consist in proving an alibi; and he need not inform them that an alibi was either the strongest or the weakest of defences. He would beg them to remember how frequently it proved that persons were mistaken in a man's identity ; and without going so far as to impute wilful falsehood to any of the witness's for the prosecution, he felt confident that if the prisoner could have procured all his evidence in time, the jury would infallibly conclude with him, that these witnesses were mistaken in what they affirmed so positively. The learned gentleman then went through the evidence, commenting strongly on the variations in the evidence of the Chapmans, father and son, and concluded by calling James Reynolds, who deposed that he now resided in Sussex-street, Sydney, where he kept an eating-house. Witness knew the prisoner, and recollected seeing him in Sydney in May last ; prisoner came to witness's house, in Bathurst-street, on the 2nd of May, and remained there till after Homebush races, on the 28th. Prisoner lodged with witness all that time ; prisoner was then ill, and troubled with constant spitting of blood ; indeed witness at the time thought him in a decline. Throughout that time he never was one night absent from witness's house ; had he been witness must have known it ; he slept on the sofa, in the parlour. On the 4th May witness accompanied prisoner to Messrs. Lyall, Scott, and Co.'s, on whom he had an order, which they accepted in witness's presence. On the 8th or 9th of May witness accompanied prisoner to Dr. Bland's, whom prisoner afterwards visited alone several times. On the 15th May prisoner accompanied witness to the public-house kept by Charles Turner, where witness in the course of the evening bought a heifer with five legs, two pounds of the purchase money for which was advanced by prisoner for witness. Several persons were present at the purchase. Prisoner then assisted witness and other persons to get the heifer out of the loft in which she was, and witness leaving her below, returned the next evening, which was Saturday, still accompanied by prisoner, to fetch the heifer home, which they did. On the next day, Sunday, prisoner dined with witness. On the Monday and throughout the ensuing week witness was only occasionally in his house, but he was positive he saw prisoner each day. Witness's wife was yery near her confinement.
    Cross-examined : Witness had been living in Sydney about eighteen months ; did not come free to the colony ; had been punished twice for drunkenness while an assigned servant, but had received no other punishment. Witness never saw the prisoner before May last; he came to witness's house enquiring for board and lodging ; witness had been married nearly two years. Early last year some stolen property had been found in witness's house, which had been put into his hands to sell on commission ; was not certain of the month, but thought it was in February. Without the receipt for the money now before the Court, witness could not positively swear it was on the 15th of May he bought the heifer, unless he had recourse to his books ; witness swore he knew nothing of any alteration in the date of the receipt from the 10th to the 15th. Charles Turner had come up with witness, and left for Sydney again that morning ; witness would swear that Turner did not return, so far as he knew, because he could not recognise the prisoner ; Turner had recognised the prisoner in the cell, and left a statement to that effect with the lawyer. Turner did not know the man, witness believed, till he saw him when witness bought the heifer. This witness was further cross-examined at great length by the Attorney General.
    Catherine Bird deposed that she lived in Kent-street, Sydney ; witness's husband was a plasterer ; witness knew prisoner, having washed for him while living at Reynolds's, the last witness ; that was in May last, from about the 4th till the latter end, after Homebush races. Witness saw him frequently, every day she thought, during that time ; witness went to Reynolds's every day to fetch washing, and generally went into ask prisoner for his, his illness making him require clothes often washed.
    Cross-examined : Witness never saw the prisoner till he lodged at Reynolds's; was certain it was in May because of the prisoner paying her for his washing immediately after the Homebush races ; Mrs. Reynolds generally sent witness into ask prisoner himself for his washing ; he was generally lying or sitting on the sofa. Witness never found him out of the house. Witness could not remember any particular lodger she washed for in April, in June, or in any particular month, except this one. Witness still washed for Mrs. Reynolds.
    John Turner deposed that he was solicitor for the defence on behalf of Mr. Dillon, of Sydney, Charles Turner made a statement to witness yesterday that he had seen prisoner, and recollected perfectly his being present at the purchase of the heifer by Reynolds, and his advancing two pounds.
    This closed the case for the defence.
    The Attorney General addressed the jury, and said the present was a most embarrassing case, and no one regretted more than himself that the parties spoken of were not there to be examined and cross-examined. The evidence that had been adduced to prove an alibi was of very little weight ; Reynolds was evidently not a person whose testimony was worth anything, as the jury could judge from his history and admissions of his present life. And Catherine Bird, whom he should rather suppose mistaken, might have been easily misled by hearing the matter talked over at Reynolds's. With regard to the receipt put in, even if the 15th May were its true date, still how often were receipts given days after the actual purchase of articles. While on the other hand there were four respectable witnesses, who positively swore to the prisoner's identity with the thief, and who had such opportunities of seeing him, that they could hardly be held to be all labouring under mistake. And if the jury should find it impossible to refuse credence to the witnesses for the defence, and should find the prisoner guilty, they might rely he felt assured, on his Honor's instituting an enquiry, among the witnesses spoken of, into the truth of the alleged alibi. The learned gentleman then went into a severe examination of the evidence of the witnesses for the defence.
    His Honor then charged the jury, dwelling minutely and clearly on the evidence throughout, but leaving the decision on its conflicting nature to the jury, who might, he said, without any disrespect to the bench, conclude that on such questions the opinion of twelve men, chosen from various classes of the community, was of greater value than that of any individual, moving in a sphere less practically qualifying him to distinguish clearly.
    The jury retired for a short time, when they returned with a verdict of guilty.
    His Honor passed sentence of twelve years' transportation on the prisoner, expressing his entire concurrence in the verdict of the jury.
    The court then adjourned till ten o'clock on Thursday.
