Walter George Benton1

M, b. 7 February 1858, d. 4 February 1905
  • Walter George Benton was born on 7 February 1858 in Cudworth, Warwickshire, England.1
  • He was the son of George Benton and Sarah Astbury.1
  • Walter George Benton's birth was registered in the in Aston,Warwickshre Registration District in the March 1858 Quarter.1,2
  • He immigrated on 17 December 1881 to Moreton Bay, Queensland, with William Astbury and Mary Ann Benton. Mary and William both aged 25, travelled on the Glamis which sailed from Plymouth on 15 Sep 1881. Also on board were Mary Ann's brother Walter 23 and sister Sarah 20 with her husband Abraham Wootton 31.3
  • Walter George Benton appeared on the Legislative Assembly - Aubigny Electoral Roll in 1900 living at Bald Hills, Pechey. His qualification to vote was that he was a resident of the area.4
  • He was a member of the first Crow's Nest Band in 1902; Band members were Raymond White, Frederick Williams, Alf Colthrup, James Gleeson, Walter George Benton, Norman White, John William Brass, Thomas Askin, Alfred William Blinco, Tim Gleeson, Anthony Lavery, James Connolly, James Nathanial Cole and HENDY.5
  • Around in 1902Walter George Benton selected 100 acres of land, Portion 64V Pinelands Scrub (Gossow Road) between the Plainby and Haden roads. It was mortgaged to Edward Wilcox of Toowoomba. After improving his selection, he leased the land in 1903, firstly to William Kelly who rented the selection for 20 per annum with an purchase price of 250 pounds. This contact was cancelled when William Kelly could not raise the money and Walter stated he had found another buyer.
    Walter did not live on the selection but earned his living by scrub cutting and doing general agricultural work. He sometimes worked at the local sawmills. Walter kept his clothes and tools at the home of Thomas Neilson, the manager of Blinco's Sawmills at Crow's Nest.1,6
  • He appeared on the Electoral Roll in 1903 living at Queensland. He was a farmer.7
  • On 28 January 1905 Walter travelled to Toowoomba to pay the interest owing his loan. At the time he told Mr Wilcox that he was negotiating the sale of the farm for £125 and would inform him when the sale was effected.6
  • On 2 February 1905 John (James) Ryan allegedly visited the A.J.B. Bank in Toowoomba where he opened an account, deposited a cheque for £7 10s, deposited £5 and took £2 10s and a cheque book away with him. On the same day was alleged to have visited an ironmongers shop in Ruthven Street where he bought gelignite, a coil of fuse and three dozen detonators for which he paid cash. Before leaving he asked the assistant to fill out a cheque for £125 in favour of W. Benton. Later that day he returned and asked to have a snake skin tanned and sent out to J. Ryan, Crow's Nest
    John (James) Ryan.8
  • Walter George Benton is believed to have died on 4 February 1905 at age 46. Earlier that day he called at the farm of Jacob Hirning to collect his mare and foal before going about the district where his work took him. Later, around 6pm he rode away from Thomas Neilson's home on the mare with the foal following. He was seen half an hour later as he passed the Kelly house on his way towards the Ryan house.
    A few weeks passed before it was realized he was missing resulting in an extensive search of Pinelands scrub. The remains of several small fires were brought to the attention of the police. On examination small pieces of bone, possibly from a human foot, a buckle, buttons and rivets from trousers, nails and eyelets and tacks from boots and other items were also found. James Ryan was charged with Walter's murder on 18 February. Ryan had wanted to buy the selection from Water who's asking price of £125 was beyond Ryan's means.
    The case went to the Supreme Court resulting in James Ryan being convicted of Walter's murder "with the recommendation to mercy on account of no one seeing the murder done". He sentenced Ryan to be hung by the neck. The sentence was commuted to penal servitude for life. The curator of Intestate Wills sold Walter's property for £250 and obtained his remains for burial by his sister Mary Ann Astbury. A year later more bones and further evidence connected with murder were found on his property.9,10

    Mrs Asbury, a widowed sister of Benton, lived with the family at Bald Hills, near the scene of the alleged crime. Her eldest son went on Sunday and asked Ryan if he had seen his uncle. Ryan said, "No," and also said he was anxious to know himself, as he had purchased a farm. The boy again questioned Ryan on Monday, and receiving a negative reply reported tho matter to the police.
    Inquiry showed that Benton left Nelson' s house, Crow's Nest, where he had bean residing, on tho evening of February 4. He was going to Ryan's, and said he would not be long. He was then wearing dungaree trousers and Blucher boots, and was on horseback. Ryan admitted being in Benton's company on the night in question when he purchased the selection. One hundred and twenty-five notes were paid to Benton, but Ryan says he never saw deceased afterwards. Next day he found the horse in his paddock, the saddle being against a tree. Tho police found a new four furrow plough at this spot. Ryan used the horse and saddle for some days.
    Detective Henderson, Constable Kingford, and a tracker arrived by Monday night's train. Sub-lnspector Malone, Detective Newman, Sergeant Poultey, and two trackers on Tuesday morning, riding from Murphy's Greek, Police from outside stations and Sub-Inspector Geraghty arrived on Tuesday night. On Wednesday attention was concentrated at the selection. A police camp was formed there. At 2.30 in the afternoon Geraghty and, tracker found the remains of a fierce fire in tho scrub on a selection in view of the house, and near a big fallen box tree, which was very dry. Timber had been conveyed to the spot, and piled over the fork of the tree and the large limbs. The ashes had been carefully swept and carried away. Forty yards distant the remains of another fire were found, and nearly in a gully where a little work had been done in making a dam. The remains of several other fires were close by. Tho police collected the ashes and kept a pole. The remains were sent to Brisbane for analysis. Trousers' buttons and brass eyelets from boots wore found amongst the ashes. Ryan moved about all Wednesday and Thursday, and offered no assistance, Yesterday morning the police considered them selves warranted in effecting his arrest with out waiting for the result of the analysis. Accused was lodged in Crow's Nest watch house. Ryan is of the bush type, of stalwart build, and fair complexion. His wife is also a typical western woman.
    Sunday.
    James Ryan appeared at the Crow's Nest Police court yesterday morning, charged with the wilful murder of Walter George Benton, when charged the accused did not make any reply.
    Acting Sergeant Henderson gave evidence at the arrest of the accused on a charge of suspected murder of Benton. When arrested the accused said: "I knew you would have to do this; I expected it. The case is very black against me." Witness said to accused: "The grounds I have for your arrest are that there have been several articles found in the life down the gully." Witness added.
    The police found tho heel of a boot, riveted button, similar to buttons on the trousers worn by Benton on the 4th, and a piece of dungaree, the same material as the trousers Benton wore on the 4th; also boot strings, a pair of tweezers, apparently a knife, and a burnt collar stud." Accused said: "Can I ask you a Question?" Witness replied "Yes." Accused said: "Can you tell me if they found an arm. or a foot, or any part of Benton?" witness replied: "They found no arm or foot, but found a human bone or bones." About 9 o'clock on Saturday morning witness saw the defendant at the watch house, and said: Ryan from information received since I charged you on suspicion of murder, I now charge you with the wilful murder of Walter Benton at Pinelands on the 4th February." The accused made no reply.
    Accused was asked If he had any questions to ask and he said "Yes." Addressing witness he said: "What l said t0 you was ' What is it they have found?' "
    Witness: ' Yes you said that , and followed up by asking if an arm or foot had been found.''
    Accused: " I asked you first what they found, and you answered "The answer is not in evidence"
    Witness said that no time had elapsed between asking of the two questions, which were as in his evidence. On the application of the police, the accused was remanded for eight days.12
  • Ryan's case was heard at the police court in Toowoomba where he was found guilty of the murder of Walter Benton by the jury "with a recommendation to mercy on account of no one seeing the murder done" and sentenced to be hanged by the neck. However Ryan's solicitor contended that as the body had not been found there was reason to believe there was only circumstantial evidence as to Benton's death. The Full Court upheld the original ruling stating there was enough evidence to convict Ryan. An appeal to the Supreme Court failed. James Ryan's death sentence was later commuted to penal servitude for life.1
  • James Ryan was initially incarscerated at St Helena island which closed in the 1930's. His place of death is not known. What become of Rose Ann and the children is not known.1
