      David Dunkley

      Dunkley, David: David Dunkley was
      tried in Leicester in March 1818 for
      robbery. He was sentenced to seven years
      transportation arriving in Hobart Town
      on the Lord Melville in December 1818.
      Aged 28 yrs, native place, Flore in
      Northampton. His convict record lists
      him as a sawyer (CON31/9;CON23/1).

      A daughter Esther was born in 1830,
      father David Dunkley, a dealer, and
      mother Ann.

      David Dunkley was a cart
      manufacturer and a general dealer of
      Liverpool Street, Hobart Town in the
      1833-1835 directories. In 1832 D
      Dunkley supplied 4,500 ft of timber to
      the Public Works for the Female Factory
      in Hobart Town (CSO1/773/16514, p
      39).

      David Dunkley, widower, married
      Elizabeth Dutton the widow of Henry
      Dutton, a carpenter, on 21 November
      1836 at Trinity Church.

      David purchased three acres of land
      known as Dunkleys Point where he lived
      until his death in 1860. David was
      thrown out of his chaise cart, falling on
      his head and died a few days later.
      Dunkleys Point is where Wrest Point
      Casino is today. He built the Duke of
      Wellington Hotel on the corner of
      Barrack & Macquarie Street, Hobart in
      1846. The name of the hotel, plus
      'Dunkley' and the date 'AD1846', can be
      seen carved into the stone work on this
      hotel which is still licensed today.

      Elizabeth Dunkley later owned the hotel.
      She died in 1880.

    Serious Accident.-An accident which we fear will result fatally happened yesterday evening to Mr. David Dunkley, of Sandy Bay, one of our oldest colonists. Mr. Dunkley drove in his light chaise cart through the Sandy Bay gate between seven and eight on Wednesday evening and passing his own house it seems his horse turned up the lane leading to Mr. Flexmore's. The gate across the lane was fastened and in turning round the horse fell throwing Mr. Dunkley out who fell on his head. On recovering his senses Mr. Dunkley called for assistance and was taken home where he has the attendance of Dr. Crowther and Dr. Bright, but the injuries we understand are of so serious a nature as to leave little hope of recovery.

      To the editor of the Port Phillip Herald
      Sir,
      ' I am requested by Mr. David Dunkley, of Hobart Town, to write to you respecting a horse, described as under, stolen from a paddock, the property of his late brother, Henry. The horse has been traced some part or the way to Port Phillip. Mr. D. Dunkley also requests me to state, that he is at present in this colony, winding up the affairs or his brother, who was murdered in his bed on the 14th September last, by one or his own servants, assisted by his own wife, under cirumstances of unparalleled barbarity. The woman having been induced to make a confession, and the body having been found, there is no doubt that the murderers will undergo the last punishment of the law.'
      The Cornwall Chronicle, Launceston, Tasmania, Saturday, 26 November 1842

      GUNNING. (From our Correspondent.) HORRIBLE MURDER OF A HUSBAND BY HIS WIFE. ?Mr. Waugh, coroner for Goulburn, and Mr. Surgeon Cartwright, attended here today. An inquest was held by the former on the body of Henry Dunkley, who for some years resided in this neighbourhood, and whose sudden disappearance, about twelve days ago, caused some suspicion. Dunkley having friends residing in Goulburn, their suspicions were awakened a few days ago upon hearing that his wife, in company with a ticket of leave holder named Beech, offered for sale at the steam mill of Messrs. Bradley and Shelly a load of wheat; one of the friends, who had known Dunkley for a great many years to be in the habit of not only transacting his own business, but of driving his own dray, was induced to put some questions to the pair then in charge of the wheat and dray, and the answers to the questions being by no means satisfactory, he felt it his duty to mention his suspicions to the police authorities of Goulburn. A constable was dispatched to Dunkley's residence, on reaching which and interrogating his wife she confessed that her husband had been murdered by the ticket of leave man Beech, who had been in Dunkley's service only a short time. From what has transpired today, there is not perhaps on record a more revolting murder than that just committed here. It would appear that Dunkley's wife and the scoundrel Beech commenced by a crime closely allied to murder, and then the putting the husband out of the way presented itself to them as the crowning of their future plans. This was accomplished in a room in which the unfortunate man slept. Beech with a heavy axe struck his victim on the neck and breast, and the force of the blows broke even his backbone, the blood pouring out and besmearing the bed and the wall near which it lay; at this part of the horrible tragedy the abominable wife took from underneath the bed a vessel, and held it so as to receive the gore from the mangled body of her husband, in order to prevent any traces of the blood being discovered. The body was next sewed up in a sack, and carried to the brink of a neighbouring waterhole, near which a hole was dug, and the body placed in it. The murderers then repaired to the house, and endeavoured to remove from the bed, walls, and floor every trace of blood, which being done, they prepared and partook of a hearty breakfast of tea, bread, bacon, and eggs. The occurrence has caused quite a thrill of horror in this quarter, poor old Dunkley having been so well known and generally liked. The woman and her paramour are both in safe custody. It appears it was also their intention to have murdered an old man, a hired servant on the farm, who they believed was not without some suspicion as to the way in which his employer had been put aside. It is said Dunkley has left some property, and that he had a brother living in Van Diemen's Land.

      Australasian Chronicle, Sydney, NSW, Tuesda, 4 October 1842

      AN OLD-TIME TRAGEDY. (BY WONGA WONGA).

      The Gunning tragedy of 1842 has been revived through the visit to the district of Mr. Henry D. Dunkley, of Victoria, a nephew of the late Mr. Henry Dunkley, of Wargallah Estate, Gunning. The Dunkley family is well known in Victoria and Tasmania. The only member of it who sought his fortunes in this State was the unfortunate Henry, who was so foully done to death by his wife and her accomplice, Beech. Wargallah was a typical homestead of the early days?a fine stone house, convict built, with the less pretentious overseer's residence not far away. The master (in those pre-democratic days the term "boss" was not in vogue) was foreman of the jury which sat at the Berrima Assizes. He was never known to miss a "sitting," and before leaving home, mounted on his trusty pony, with quart pot, tucker box, and tether (the indisputable paraphernalia of the traveller of the early days), always gave full directions about the working of the place. Mr. Clarke was overseer. The homestead always has an attraction for the overseer's family, and Mrs. Clarke was no exception to the rule. Going to the "house" one morning she was surprised to hear from Mrs. Dunkley that the master had gone to Berima. Returning home, she told her husband. For some time the friendliness between Mrs. Dunkley and Beech had been noticed by the Clarkes. Knowing that the Asizes were not sitting, and their not being told of Mr. Dunkley's departure, aroused the suspicion of the Clarkes, and they determined to keep both eyes and ears open. On the following morning Mrs. Clarke again visited the "house," and was met by Mrs. Dunkley, who excitedly told her that she was afraid that the master had met with an accident, as the pony had been found by Beech that morning standing at the gate, with saddle, bridle tether, etc.

      On the next afternoon Clarke received an order from Mrs. Dunkley to kill a certain heifer. He demurred on account of the "cask" being half-full of meat, and also because that was the master's favourite heifer. The Clarkes, convinced that something was wrong, concluded that it was a ruse to get them taken up for cattle-stealing, thus disposing of them.

      The next act in the sordid drama was the hiring of a young man, who came along looking for work, and the departure for Goulburn of two teams of wheat, the culprits in charge of one and the hired man with the other. They camped for the night at the Run of Water (Yarra), a few miles out of Goulburn. Lying awake during the night, the young man overheard a conversation which made his "flesh creep," and decamping into Goulburn he informed the police, who immediately proceeded to the Run of Water, and effected an arrest. A full confession was made of one of the most revolting murders ever committed. Public opinion was so outraged that although a petition for a reprieve was drawn up in favour of the woman, who was enciente, it was not a whole-hearted one, and the law took its course.

      On the morning of the execution she donned a black silk dress, and on mounting the scaffold asked the hangman not to "tread on her train."

      The remains of poor Mr. Dunkley were found sewn up in a bag, and buried under flood wash, near the creek, by the late Mr. Cooper.

      He was buried on the hillside in Gunning Police Paddock, and on the stone the following quaint epitaph was inscribed:-

      Sacred To the Memory of Henry Dunckley,

      Who was cruelly and barbourously murdered by his wife and servant man on the 13th September, 1842,

      Aged 40 years.

      In the prime of life I was cut down

      By a treacherous woman's hand;

      Our hearts the mournful tribute pay

      Which pity must demand.

      Erected by his affectionate brother, Mr. David Dunckley.

      Goulburn Evening Penny Pos, NSW, Saturday, 13 January 1917



      Henry Dunkley was buried in the then Gunning police paddocks but his grave now rests in what has become the village sewerage works - an exquisite insult. The railway arrived in 1865 and Gunning station was a vital link for goods, equipment, machinery and people.
