  • James Martin Grehan died on 28 December 1938 in Genreral Hospital, Toowoomba, Queensland. He died from injuries he received as the result of an accident. The Telegraph reported " Evidence that a man whom he had found lying at the side of the Hampton-Ravensbourne Road near a damaged truck on the afternoon of December 27, 1938, had asked to be dragged into the shade and allowed to die in peace was given by Roland James Dunn in the Coroner's Court today when an inquest was held by Mr. J. E. Landy. P.M.. on James Martin Grehan, whose death occurred in the Toowoomba General Hospital on December 28, 1938, as a result of injuries which he received in a motor accident the previous day.
    Senior Sergeant W. Quinlan examined the witnesses. Witness stated that at about 3.30 p.m. on December 27 he was driving in a car along the Hampton-Ravensbourne Road. He discovered an injured person whom he now knew was James Grehan. The man was lying in the gutter at the side of the road about five yards past a guide-post. A man who was with witness at the time went to a store nearby to communicate with the ambulance. The injured man when spoken to said, "Drag me into the shade and let me die in peace." There was a truck nearby and from what witness saw he considered that the deceased, James Grehan, had been driving the vehicle which had collided with a post. The post was bent out of alignment. The injured man when questioned by an other man said that .he might have been driving fast, and after others had had a look at the vehicle he said the steering might have locked. From what he had seen there was no evi dence or inference that there was anyone else implicated in the matter. Witness had heard that Jamea Grehan had since died, and from what witness knew he would say that his death resulted from an accident, Constable W. S. T. Banks said that he had made enquiries from which he was satisfied that there were no circumstances of a suspicious nature. The deceased died in the General Hospital, Toowoomba, about 9.45 a.m. on December 28, 1938. Witness tendered a copy of the certificate showing the cause of death."4,5

James Matthias (Graham) Grehan1

M, b. 1850, d. 22 July 1938
  • James Matthias (Graham) Grehan was born in 1850. He was the son of Patrick Grehan and Mary McGrath.1
  • He possibly immigrated to Moreton Bay in 1862. A Matthew Greham aged 17 was amongst the passengers aboard the Theresa which sailed from Plymouth on 26 April 1862. A Catherine Greham aged 28 was also aboard the ship.2
  • In October 1870 Matthias obtained a license to cut timber, including cedar and pine wood.3
  • On 30 August 1871 The Darling Downs Gazette reported:- " Monday, August 28.
    (Mr W. Beit J.P took his seat on the Bench). Matthew Grehan v W. Gilles jun. - The defendant, a boy from ten to twelve years of age, was charged with illegally selling horses, the property of the complainant. Mr Hamilton for the Defendant. Wm Leath said that on Friday the 18th instant he saw the defendant riding a horse which he believed to be the property of the complainant; could not swear to the brand, and would not undertake to swear to the horse if he saw it again. Case dismissed. Matthew Grehan v Ellen Gilles - The defendant in this case was charged with illegally working the same animal. Mr Hamilton for defendant. Matthew Grehan, said that on Sunday the 20th instant he saw the defendant riding the horse at his father's place at Highfields which belonged to him; never gave permission to use the horse, either on that day or at any other time; the horse was now in the bush, and usually ran about two miles from the defendant's home. Mr Hamilton said that the complainant was bound to produce the horse and to prove that it was his own property; he (Mr Hamilton) would perhaps on the production of the horse be in a position to prove that the horse did not belong to the complainant, or that a question of ownership which was involved would be fatal to the case. The further hearing was then adjourned to Monday next, in order to allow the complainant an opportunity of bringing in the horses."4
  • He testified when Joseph Cossart and William Richard Wilkes appeared in court on on 17 November 1871. William Wilkes and Joseph Cossart were charged with removing timber from a Crown Reserve without have a license. On the 18th they appeared in Court. The Toowoomba Chronicle and Advertiser reported:-""Joseph Cossart and William Wilkes appeared in custody charged with stealing timber, the property of Martin Meldon. Mr. Ocock appeared for the complainant. It appeared from the evidence that Meldon missed some cedar logs from Perseverance Scrub which he claimed as his properly, and saw one of the logs on a dray. He applied for and obtained a search warrant, and on Saturday last he in company with Constable Delamer went to the above scrub, where they saw two drays loaded with cedar In the possession of Joseph Cossart and William Wilkes; of these logs Meldon claimed one on one dray and three on the other as his property Cossart and Wilkes were apprehended and taken to the Toowoomba lockup, and the drays were also taken into Toowoomba. Meldon, In his evidence before the Court, said he knew the timber was his by a particular mark, that he valued it at £10, that It might have been cut seven or eight months, that he helped to cut the big log with Matthew McDermott, and the other logs with Joe Hoey, Jenkins, and other men. Henry Kahler deposed to cutting timber for Meldon, with other men, seven or eight months ago, and helping to brand the logs in the latter end of April- three of the logs on the dray outside the Courthouse was part of the timber then cut and branded. Matthew McDermott corroborated the evidence of Meldon, and stated the big log outside the Court was one that he helped Meldon to cut six or seven months ago. Matthias Graham deposed: l am a carrier; I employed Cossart and Wilkes to take the timber outside the Court from Perseverance Scrub to Mr Cocks' saw mill to Toowoomba ; I helped them to load it, and told them to deliver it at Cocks' yard to my order; the timber was felted by Harry Wynyard over three years ago; his brands were on the timber at the butts of the logs; the butts have- been cut off; I purchased the timber from Wynyard about three years ago; I did not see the timber, but he authorised me to take the timber with his brand ; I saw his brand on the logs now outside the Court; I saw Meldon and his men cutting the part of the big log now outside the Court on which the brand was; I believe the timber outside the Court to be my property. Cross-examined by Mr. Ocock I have known Wynyard four or five years ; he lived at Highfields when I purchased the timber; he did not deliver any Umber- he told me to take It; I paid him £1 for the timber; Wynyard did not tell me bow many logs he had In the scrub ; I saw these logs In the scrub eight or nine months ago; Meldon's men were there at the time- Harry Kahler was one of them ; I saw them cutting the butt of the big log and gave them notice not to touch any timber with the WH brand; they cut off the butt;, Wynyard is in the colony ; I saw him not long ago; he Is out of town now ; I hold a timber license which I renew half-yearly. The witness was told by the Police Magistrate that he could refuse to answer any question that might incriminate himself Martin Meldon recalled: I did not fell the tree from which the large log was taken ; there Is not a tree standing in the scrub that is any good: I believe they have all been felled over seven years; by cutting the log I mean I cut the tree Into lengths fit for removing; I did not cut off any brands to my knowledge ; I cut the logs believing them to be the property of the Government and I being duly licensed to cut and remove timber; Graham never cautioned me not to cut off brands; he offered to purchase from me the very timber he now claims. The prisoners were discharged from custody."5,6

  • On 17 November 1871 the Darling Downs Gazette reported:- "Martin Meldon v. Matthias Grehan. — The defendant in this case was charged with illegally detaining four logs of cedar of the value of £10, the property of the complainant. Mr Hamilton for the defendant. After the evidence of several witnesses had been taken, Mr Hamilton informed the Bench that the Town Police Act does not apply to Perseverance Scrub, and the case was dismissed."5
  • In December 1871 James Greham served a summons against William Gillis for unpaid labour. The claim for 13s 9p was not defended and no summons was served.7
  • On 10 May 1873 The Darling Downs Gazette reported :- "Friday, May 9. Before the Police Magistrate.
    Matthias Grehan, farmer of Highfields, was charged that at Highfields, on the 6th day of May, 1873, he did unlawfully rescue or attempt to rescue certain property, to wit, a team of bullocks levied on by William Smith, bailiff, of the Court of Requests at Toowoomba. William Smith deposed : I am bailiff of the Small Debts Court in Toowoomba; on Tuesday last, the 6th instant, by virtue of two executions (produced) proceeded to where the defendant's drays were camped and levied upon one team of eight bullocks, together with yokes, bows and a timber trolly, to satisfy the demand named in the executions; at the time of levy defendant was not present ; three hours after defendant came to the drays ; I told him what I had done; I read the executions to him and told him the full amount, and unless the money was paid I should take the team to Toowoomba ; defendant replied, 'I have lodged the necessary securities for an appeal, and my solicitor has instructed me not to allow you or any other man to touch any of my property ; I said, 'If you attempt to resist me in the execution of my duty you must put up with the consequences ; he again distinctly refused to allow me to take his team ; I then left him, telling him I should take further proceedings ; I had seized the team ; I had no instructions from the Registrar of the Court that the execution had been satisfied ; I asked the defendant if he had brought anything to show me ; there was a man with him ; in consequence of what defendant said I gave up possession ; could not take the team by force ; from what defendant said I was satisfied would not be allowed. Cross-examined by defendant : I got the executions on the 5th instant I saw the teams on that day, but did not know they belonged to you ; I afterwards got information that the team I levied on was your property ; you did not say you had more property besides the teams I could levy upon ; I did not turn horses out of your paddock to bring into Toowoomba. It appeared that security upon the appeal was given on the 6th, and the defendant therefore was I ordered to pay a fine of 20s and 4s 6d costs ; in default, 7 days in gaol."8
  • On 10 March 1875 The Darling Downs Gazette reported:- "William Gillies appeared to answer charges of assault on the person of Matthias Grehan while he was acting as bailiff of the Small Debts Court. Mr C. Hamilton for the defence. There being no proof of the appointment of Grehan as bailiff, the case was dismissed without costs.9 "
  • At the age of 29 years, James Matthias (Graham) Grehan married Emma Louisa Grant in 1879 in Queensland.1,10
  • Conditional approval for James Matthias (Graham) Grehan's selection of landwas given on 24 November 1888. James selected 40 acres of land at Ravensbourne. "For the agricultural township farms adjoining the village of Ravensbourne there was great competition, many of the portions being applied for from four to ten times over. The ballot had to be resorted to in no less than 50 cases; this, with the refunding of the amounts paid by the unsuccessful applicants, necessarily occupied  a deal of time, and it was not till half-past 6 O'clock that the business was concluded, and the court closed. By 7 o'clock the whole of the refundments had been paid over to 115 applicants. The 76 portions adjoining the village of Ravensbourne, granted at the land court, were  apportioned among 62 selectors, so there is every probability of the village settlement of Ravensbourne proving a success. The total area granted at the court was 5025 acres among 68 applicants."11
  • On 3 May 1892 The Darling Downs Gazette reported:- "SATURDAY, 1st. OCTOBER. (Before Captain Goodill, P.M.) LARCENY OF BEEF
    James Matthias Grehan, on remand, was charged with stealing a bag of beef from the Toowoomba railway platform on the 19th September last. After the evidence taken on the previous occasion had been read over,Mr. Inspector Graham called Edmond Boland, who deposed that he was a butcher residing in Toowoomba on the 9th September last sent 1 bag of beef to Grantham, and another on the 19th to John Molen. at Grantham ; sent it to the railway station and delivered it there to be for warded to the address ; was told it had not arrived; received no letter; whatever from accused respecting that meet; the bag was similar to that produced ; accused had beef of witness before ; held the railway people responsible for the beef; did not remember selling any beef to accused for perhaps a couple of years. Charles Voclker deposed that he was a butcher employed by Mr. Boland ; got in structions from him to pack a bag of meat for Grantham; it was a bag like that produced. William Burke, clerk at the railway station, deposed to receiving a bag of meat from Mr. Boland on 19th September, addressed to Mr. Molen, Grantham ; the bag was put on the platform and afterwards found to be missing.
    Accused, on being asked to plead, pleaded not guilty. The Bench considered the charge fully proved, and ordered accused to pay ,£10, in default to be imprisoned for two months."12
  • On 25 June 1892 James applied for a Victuallers licence for his premises at Hampton. The Darling Downs Gazette reported:- "I, MATTHIES GREHAN, of Hampton, Contractor, hereby give Notice that I intend to apply at the next Quarterly Meeting of the said Licensing Authority for a Provisional Certificate under the said Art, for the premises belonging to me and situated on Hampton in tho Police District of Crow's Nest. The said premises are partly erected, and will, when finished, be in all respects in accordance with the requirements of the said Act and plans in the office of the Clerk of Petty Sessions, Crow's Nest Dated this 21st day of June, 1892. MATTHIES GREHAN."13
  • On 4 July 1896 The Darling Downs Gazette reported " Re the appeal of Jno. McLaughlan for a determination of the value of improvements on agricultural farm No. 2141, forfeited by James M. Grehan. The Land Board found that the improvements on this selection, the value of which is claimed by James Matthias Grehan, are valueless to the present selector, John McLaughlan."14
  • Emma had several children during the early 1900's. The father's name were not listed on the birth records.

  • James Matthias (Graham) Grehan died on 22 July 1938 in Brisbane, Queensland.16,17
