Catherine Frances Ambrose1

F, b. between 31 August 1852 and 1853, d. 1911
  • Catherine Frances Ambrose was born between 31 August 1852 and 1853.1
  • She was the daughter of William (Patrick) Ambrose and Margaret Reimen/Raymond.1
  • Catherine Frances Ambrose was baptized on 11 September 1853 in Queensland.1
  • She was arrested with her brother William and step father David Kynoch. David Kynoch was charged with the theft of three calves from William Merritt. The Darling Downs Gazette reported:- "David Kynoch, Catherine Ambrose, and William Patrick Ambrose, were charged with feloniously stealing three head of cattle the property of William and Alfred Merritt, at Highfields. Mr. Boyle for the defendants. J. B. Barry said he was a constable stationed at Ipswich ; he went to the prisoners' house, at Perseverance Station, on Wednesday last, and found the two younger prisoners on the premises ; they were step-children of the prisoner Kynoch ; told the girl he was a detective constable, and asked her to show her father’s brands ; she brought about eight or ten from the dairy, and when be asked if there were not two or three more she replied, ' no ;' afterwards searched the dwelling house, and found the CAW brands, now produced, under the bed; Alfred Merritt was present when the brands were found, and Catherine Ambrose said, "If Mr. Merritt will not press the charge against my father he can have all the horses and bullocks we have ; we did not know that the calves belonged to Mr. Merritt when we brought then up the range, from Luke's waterhole ." asked her if the brands now produced were those used in branding the cattle, and she replied, 'Yes they are ;" he (witness) said to her "You knew they are not your own cattle, although you did not know they were Mr. Merritt's," and she said " Yes; I have been very foolish, and I am sorry for it; " We drove the cattle to the yard at Perseverance Station, kept them there one night, and then drove then over to the farm, which is about ten-miles nearer to Toowoomba ; they remained there three or four days, where they were branded by herself, her brother, and a man named Paddy O'Neil ; he (witness) had compared the brands now produced with the brands upon the cattle, and found them to correspond; arrested Catherine and William Ambrose on Wednesday evening, and had shown them the cattle this (Friday) morning'; they were identified by them as the cattle they had branded; and Catherine said it was her father who had assisted to brand them, and not Paddy O'Neil as she had first stated; arrested the prisoner David Kynoch outside the Court that morning, and after reading the warrant to him he said, ''the cattle are mine "took him into the yard to look at , and he said " Yes, those are the cattle ; I branded them and they are my property." By the Bench: The cattle were found in a paddock nearly adjoining the prisoners farm on Reedy Creek and were identified by Mr. Merritt as his property Wm. Merritt, examined by Detective Barry, said he missed a mob of cattle from his paddocks about five weeks ago ; there were several milking cows with their calves among the mob, they were returned about nine days afterward with the exception of three unbranded calves, almost eight or nine months old ; saw them next in a paddock near Reedy Creek, where they were fresh branded ; the cattle outside the Court were those he had referred to, and were the property of himself and his son ; met the prisoner Kynoch on the Highfields road on Thursday afternoon and he said, "This is a very bad job, Mr Merritt, cannot we arrange the matter' he (witness) told him that the case was totally out of his control, and prisoner replied, “I will do anything if you will stop the proceedings. If there are any of your calves among them you can take them and I will give you anything I have; we did not know the calves belonged to you at the time they were branded; they were branded by myself, and I took them from my own paddock and put them into Cameron's paddock.' Alfred Merritt corroborated the evidence of the apprehending constable. At the close of the examination Detective Barry applied for a remand until Tuesday next, for the purpose of producing further evidence. . On the application of Mr. Boyle, bail was granted to the prisoners Ambrose, themselves in £20, and two sureties of £10 each, but the Bench refused to admit Kynoch to bail."
    in July 1869.2
  • Catherine Frances Ambrose was a witness in the trial for the murder of Michael Klein by John Alexander Herrlich on 12 February 1870 in Cedar Scrub. The Darling Downs Gazette reported:- : "John Alexander Herrlich was brought up at the Police Court on Tuesday last, charged with the wilful murder of Michael Klein at the Cedar Scrub, near Perseverance Station, on the 12th day of February last. The prisoner appeared to be suffering from extreme exhaustion, and was accommodated with a seat during the examination. Sub-Inspector Harris conducted the case for the Crown.
    Acting Sub-Inspector McCarthy said he apprehended the prisoner between 10 and 11 o'clock at night on Friday, the 8th April last, at a house on the Highfields road, about twelve miles from Toowoomba ; produced the warrant, and said to prisoner- "The charge against yon is that, on the 12th day of February last, you did unlawfully kill one Michael Klein near the Cedar Scrub at Perseverance Station ;" prisoner paused for a few seconds, after which he said, "I came to these people to give myself up ;" witness brought him next day to Toowoomba, and confined him in the watch house. By the Bench: I arrested the prisoner between 10 and 11 o'clock at night at Jost Kahler's house on the Highfields road ; four other men were present, namely, Murray, Heinrich Kahler, Jost Kahler, and another German, whom he (witness) did not know. Examination by Mr Sub-inspector Harris continued: On 12th April witness and Acting-Sergeant Shea proceeded again to Highfields, and saw the gun now produced taken from beneath some bark at the rear of Heinrich Kahler's house and in close proximity to where the prisoner was apprehended; believed the gun to be loaded in both barrels, as the nipples were capped and the ramrod would not go down the whole length of the barrel ; could not at present say what the barrels contained. The Court adjourned for a few minutes in order to give Sergeant Shea sufficient time to draw the charges, but as the operation occupied the court some considerable period, the gun was taken to the watch-house, and subsequently unloaded in the presence of McCarthy. The Police Magistrate having read over the evidence of the previous witness, inquired of the prisoner whether he had any intention to ask questions, and the prisoner replied that the only questions he would ask would be put in the Court. Catherine Frances Ambrose, daughter of Mrs. Kynock of Perseverance Station, said she had known the prisoner for some time past ; remembered seeing him at his hut in the Perseverance Scrub about December last, and had a convention with him in reference to the Kleins ; he said, "When will the Kliens be out again,'' and witnessed answered, "They will be out next week ;" prisoner then remarked, "If I catch them taking away any more of my cedar, this time by God I will shoot him ;" Michael and George Klein were the only persons taking cedar from the scrub at that time, and to the best of her belief she thought he intended to shoot Michael Klien: knew the gun produced, having seen it frequently in the prisoner's possession; know it particularly by the stock, as the witness lent him the tools to make it with ; had no doubt whatever that the gun belonged to the prisoner; saw the dead body of Michael Klien being conveyed from the scrub in a spring cart on the Sunday after the murder. William Kane said that in the month of January last he was in the employment of Mrs Kynoch, of Perseverance Station; was sent to the Cedar Scrub at that time by Mrs Kynoch for a load of cedar, and saw the prisoner; when he first came up to witness he said, "You knock off; I will not allow any person to take that cedar; I have been down to Ipswich and received legal advice to arrest any teams that come to the scrub to take away cedar." Witness told him that he had received an authority from Michael Klein to take away a load; and he replied, '" will not allow Michael Klein or any other person to take cedar from there, and if Michael Klein docs so I have advice what to do, and I will do it if I swing by the neck the next minute." Michael Klein was a carrier working at the scrub about that time, and witness had seen him removing timber on several occasions previous to the time now mentioned; saw the body of Michael Klein lying dead in a cart, when it was being brought from the Cedar Scrub, about nine or ten weeks ago; knew prisoner quite well, and seldom, if ever, saw him without a gun; believed the gun now produced to be the one usually carried by the prisoner. Dr Roberts said that about 2 o'clock on the morning of the 13th of February last he held a post mortem examination on the body of a man named Michael Klein, at the Perseverance Cedar Scrub ; the body was quite cold having been some time dead; on the right side of the lower part of the breast bone there was a gun-shot wound ; the edges were blackened with gunpowder, and the charge had entered the body by this wound ; it had then carried away a portion of the heart, passed through the right lung, and out at a second wound in the back, between the blade bone and the right side of the spine ; the wound in the back was slightly above the wound in the breast ; the effect of such a wound would be instantaneous death ; the wound might have been caused by a bullet, or a charge of shot discharged at very close quarters, and from the appearance of the wound witness would say that the shot must have been fired within two feet of the body; the deceased was a remarkably healthy looking man. Terence McCall said he was a carrier, residing at Highfields, and on the 12th day of February last he was getting cedar from the Perseverance Scrub; knew the prisoner, and saw him about 1 o'clock on the afternoon of that day passing through the scrub; he was then carrying a gun the same as that now produced; witness had often seen the gun in prisoner's possession. Constable McCafferty said that he accompanied Dr Roberts to the Perseverance Scrub, on the night of the 12th February last, and on the morning of the next day, between I and 2 o'clock, Dr Roberts made a post mortem examination on the body of a man named Michael Klein; witness assisted in removing the clothing from the body, which he now p[roduced, as well as a number of bullets received from the Police Magistrate a few days afterwards. On the application of Mr Sub-Inspector Harris the further hearing of the case was adjourned to Thursday, at 10 o'clock."3

Edward Ambrose1

M, b. 7 November 1844, d. 30 April 1914
  • Edward Ambrose was born on 7 November 1844 in Sydney, New South Wales.1,2,3
  • He was the son of George Ambrose and Hannah Crane.2
  • At the age of 15 years, Edward Ambrose married Ann Jane Duff in 1860 in Hartley, New South Wales. Hartley is a small town south of Lithgow in the Blue Mountains. Edward and Ann were married at a very young age and their first three children were born at Hartley. They then moved north west to Molong where three more children were born, then to Gulgong, before heading further north to Inverell and Vegatable Creek or Emmaville between Glen Innes and Tenterfield where children were born between 1876 and 1880. Their last child was born at Rylstone near Mudgee in the Hunter Valley in 1882. Their son Edward was married in Tenterfield in 1883, and their daughter Anna married James King in Inverell in 1890. Sometime before 1904 they moved to Queensland, most likely in the early 1890's as their daughter Emily married Alfred King there in 1896.
    It is possible they were aquainted with the King while they were living at Hartley as James King and Hannah Harton were married there in 1855 and lived there until at least 1876 when they moved to Rylstone.1,4
  • On 7 November 1904,his wife, Ann Jane Duff died in Clermont, Queensland, at age 62.5,6
  • Edward Ambrose died on 30 April 1914 in Queensland at age 69.7,8
  • He was buried in Crow's Nest Cemetery.7
