CALDWELL, of Frodsham, in the county of Chester, gentleman, did write a certain defamatory Letter to

Frodsham, aforesaid, Surgeon, reflecting upon his character. And, whereas the said THOMAS
BOYDELL HULLEY, hath commenced an ACTION, in his Majesty's Court of King's Bench, at

Thomas Boydell Hulley said he was a member of the Royal College of Surgeons in London; had
been assistant surgeon at his Majesty's Royal Hospital, Hazlar, near Portsmouth afterwards first
mate on board his Majesty's ship Victory, and lastly, surgeon of his Majesty's ship Camperdown.
He had examined the body of the deceased. There were no external marks of violence on the head
sufficient (in his opinion) to cause death; but there was a discolouration under the right ear, about
two inches in length and abut one inch in breadth, such as would be occasioned by a blow.
Upon opening the head, he found a quantity of extraversated blood upon the brain sufficient to
cause death. A blow given the ear might be productive of such circumstances. the jury returned a
verdict of Wilful murder against some person or persons unknown.

1834 25 Oct - Manchester Times and Gazette - Coroner’s inquest-caution-on Monday last, an inquest was held before
F. Thomas, Esq., coroner, and a respectable jury at Overton, near Frodsham, on view of the body of
James Corker, who met his death in consequence of a quantity of rubbish falling upon him from the
surface of a rock, while in the act of filling a cart at a stone quarry, on Friday the third instant. It
appeared from the evidence that every effort was immediately made after the accident to rescue the
poor fellow from his perilous situation; and on his being got out it was discovered that he had been
dreadfully injured. Mr R.C. Hulley, surgeon, of Frodsham, was called in to the unfortunate man, and
attended him with the utmost assiduity, until he expired on the Monday morning after the accident.-
Corker's body was, in two or three days afterwards, interred in the parish church of Frodsham,
without notice being given to the coroner, whose duty it is to enquire into the causes of all accidental
deaths; but a complaint being presently made to him of the illegality of the proceeding, he caused the
body to be taken up again, and an enquiry upon view to be had. This should operate as a caution to the
officers of townships where such deaths occur, as well as to the relatives of the deceased; as the
former expose their townships to the hazard of being presented by the coroner, and amerced at the
Assizes, and the latter of having their feelings wounded by the distressing circumstances attended a
public exhumation. On the present occasion it does not appear that the constables of the township were
free from blame.

1835 15 May - Chester Chronicle - GRATIFYING TRIBUTE OF RESPECT.
Robert C. Hulley, Esq. M.D. son of Mr. Hulley, surgeon, of Frodsham, in this county, has lately
obtained his diploma of the University of Glasgow, with a view to establishing himself in practice
in his native county. We copy the following gratifying tribute to his character from the Glasgow
Liberator of Saturday last, the 9th inst.:

"A number of the friends of the above-named gentleman, desirous of conferring on him a mark of
their regard previous to his departure for England, invited him to dine with them in the Royal Tavern,
Argyle-street, on the 4th inst. Mr. Warden in the chair; Mr. John Tait, Croupier.

"Upon the cloth being removed, the chairman rose, and spoke to the following effect: Gentlemen, the toast
I am about to propose, will, I believe, be cordially responded to. We have met this evening to congratulate
our guest on attaining the climax of his profession, the degree of Doctor of Medicine at the University of our
city. From my little experience of the healing art, I cannot be expected to express any opinion on the
subject of our guest's medical qualifications; but from the circumstances he has been deemed worthy of
the diploma which he has received from the University, I am bound to be satisfied that he possesses such
medical talents as will enable him to discharge, in a manner creditable to himself and useful to his afflicted
fellow creatures, the important duties to which his life is to be devoted. And sure I am, unless I have
studied him very superficially, that he is a gentleman who will not be required to be stimulated by the hope
of a fee, when a poor man applies for his professional assistance.
Gentlemen, that we who reside in Glasgow should have caught the contagion of liberal principles is not
surprising, living as we do, in an atmosphere where they are so freely breathed; but the political principles
of our guest were generated in a less congenial atmosphere; he was born and bred in one of the most
aristocratic counties of England, and therefore, I cannot help thinking it creditable to the force of his mind
that it has been able to emancipate itself from the noxious influences with which it was surrounded. But,
gentlemen, though we have often been delighted by the eloquence with which our guest supports the
principles he has adopted - by the glowing and instinctive zeal with which he denounces every species of
oppression and misgovernment, I would not be violating truth greatly, were I to say it is chiefly his private
qualities which have won him the esteem that we are endeavouring to show him this evening. That he
has, in common with every human being, frailties, he himself will be the first to acknowledge: but the bold
relief of his virtues casts these imperfections into the shade. The man who, after becoming acquainted with
Dr. Hulley, can withhold his admiration from the stubbornness of his integrity - the delicate and scrupulous
rectitude which every action of his life displays, must have a mind incapable of appreciating those
inestimable qualities which give human existence it's principle charm.
I do not think that any one, like me, has enjoyed the pleasure of our guest's acquaintance, will accuse me
of exaggeration when I say, that a more honourable heart never beat in a human bosom. It is well known
to you, gentlemen, that these opinions of mine respecting our friend, are not the sudden growth of this
festive occasion, but have been repeatedly uttered by me in his absence, and when we had very little
prospect of a renewal of the pleasure which his welcome reappearance in Glasgow, after a year's
absence, has afforded us. I conclude by proposing a bumper to Dr. Hulley, and may he prove an honour
to the profession which he has embraced."
"The toast was drank with enthusiastic applause, and an eloquent reply made to it by Dr. Hulley, expressive
of the pleasure and benefit he had derived from the society of those with whom it has been his good
fortune to be acquainted.
"The University of Glasgow," and a number of other toasts were then given, preceded and followed by
suitable speeches, which want of space prevents us from particularising. A more intellectual evening we
could not wish to spend. It was enlivened by a number of excellent songs, a good proportion of which was,
at the earnest call of the company, supplied by the poetical successor of Robert Tannahill.

TO THE TRUSTEES OF THE MANCHESTER ROYAL INFIRMARY AND DISPENSARY.
Ladies and Gentlemen,- The decease of the late Dr. Phillips leaving a vacancy in the office of Physician
to the above institution, I beg respectfully to solicit the favour of your interest, in placing me as his
SUCCESSOR.
Being a comparative stranger to you (unaided by family influence, known only by friends made during
my short sojourn amongst you, and trusting solely to my own abilities and enterprise), you will naturally
enquire who the individual is who presumes to present himself before you. I have only to say, that I
have a number of years' extensive practice in the universities of Paris, Edinburgh, and Glasgow: and
attained, in my native place, to all in my profession that the neighbourhood would afford, which not
satisfying my views, I determined to try a more extensive field for my exertions; and I trust it will be some
recommendation, when I inform you, that, during a residence of eighteen months in Hulme, (unknown
in the first instance to any one in that locality), I have arrived at a practice equalled by a comparatively
small number of the faculty in this great manufacturing community.
Should it be my fortune to be the object of your choice, rest assured that those habits acquired by
industry and application will prompt me to deserve your approbation. I have the honour to be, ladies
and gentlemen, your obedient, humble servant. R. C. HULLEY, M. D.
Jacksons Lane, Hulme, January 1 1838. N.B. the ELECTION will take place on the 18th instant.

1838 20 Jan - The Manchester Guardian (also on Jan 24 1838)
TO THE TRUSTEES OF THE MANCHESTER ROYAL INFIRMARY AND DISPENSARY.
Ladies and Gentlemen,- I beg to tender my sincere acknowledgement for the very liberal support you
were pleased to favour me with during my short canvas for the office of Physician to your valuable
Institution.
For so entire a stranger as myself it were presumptuous to hope for success in this my first application,
especially taking into consideration the strong prior claim of the successful candidate, Dr. Pendlebury;
and not wishing to cause unnecessary delay on the day of election, I deemed it the most prudent course
to retire before the polling. But in the event of another opportunity being presented, I shall again offer
myself, when I trust I shall be better prepared; and in the mean times, I shall make it my constant study
to gain upon your kind approbation.
I cannot conclude this brief address without expressing my thanks to the medical board, for the very kind
and polite attention shown to me, and which I esteem the more on account of being totally unknown to
them.
I am, ladies and gentlemen, your obedient servant.

Opening of the Zoological Gardens on Sundays - Dr Hulley was of opinion that they would confer a
great blessing on working classes. Like contriving any recreation, which would number of them from
the gin-shops. It was with this view. He would vote for the original motion, and if unsuccessful in
carrying it, he would join any of them in withdrawing their shares to invest the money in the
establishment of gardens as near the centre of the town, and as convenient for those classes, as
possible.

1839 12 Apr - Chester Chronicle - CHARGE OF CONSPIRACY- The Queen v. Riley and others.
The ATTORNEY-GENERAL stated the case, which was, that the defendant , Mr. Purcell, conveyancer,
of Frodsham, and some other parties, were charged with making a fraudulent assignment of the effect ts
of the defendant Riley, for the purpose of defrauding R. C. Hully, M. D., residing at Frodsham, of a
judgement debt.
(Incl.) Robt. Churchman Hully, Esq. M.D. Formerly resided in Frodsham, now in Manchester; in Nov.
1835 lent Riley £46; received back £173 - the balance £233. Mr. John Price, clerk to Mr. Foulkes,
produced he assignment from Riley to Darlington, and a copy of judgment in the Exchequer “Hulley v.
Riley.” Witness asked him if Hully had entered int the assignment, or had been applied to, and he said
Dr. Hully would not come in, and he would not pay him anything, and he might work at his body.
Verdict - “Not Guilty”.

1839 12 Apr - Liverpool Mercury Frodsham - As soon as the information arrived by express in this town, on Saturday
last, that Mr Purcell, and the other persons charged by Dr Hulley with a conspiracy, were acquitted,
hundreds of individuals assembled before Mr. Purcell’s house, and demonstrated their joy at the event
by huzzaing, &c.- The church bells also struck up a merry peal, which was continued until two o'clock in
the morning. - Chester Gazette.

1840 21 Nov - Manchester Times and Gazette Manchester Zoological Society -- the fourth general annual meeting.
On the motion of Dr Hulley, seconded by Mr Lilley, the meeting adjourned at a quarter past one o'clock
to the 9th of December next.

1840 12 Dec - Manchester Times and Gazette Adjourned annual meeting of the Prietors of the Zoological Gardens
took place on Wednesday in the Zoological Gardens persuant to adjournment, at Hayward's Hotel,
Bridge-street.
Dr Hulley: I wish to ask, Mr Chairman, who the professors of religion are who have anything to do with
the closing of Gardens on the Sunday.
The chairman: Dr Hulley I think, will see that the professors alluded to hear and those who say that our
Gardens, ought not to be open on the Sunday; and there may of course, be two opinions on that.
Dr Hulley; He had only received a summons last Tuesday night, while others had received them a
week before.
Mr Looney, secretary, said, if Dr. Hulley accused him of any humbug, he begged to say that he was a
bigger humbug himself. (Order, order.) He had a simple duty to perform, to send out the circulars; and
he performed it to the best of his ability. It had happened that Dr Hulley's circular had been misdirected
Great John-street, instead of Saint John-street. There had been such a hubbub at every meeting about
circulars not being sent, that he had this time taken extra pains; he had called them over by the list of
shareholders, stamped them, and sent them all to the Post-office, except three, whose residences he did
not know. He had been to the Post-office about Dr Hulley's circular, and could get no explanation; the
postman said it was directed Great John-street instead of Saint John street; and if there was any error it
had arisen from that.
Dr Hulley then rose and began to read a letter, which he said had been sent to the London papers, on
the subject of the Zoological Gardens.
The Chairman said he could not see what it had to do with that meeting.
Dr Hulley: It has a great deal to do with it. You cannot stop me. These are my own remarks: will that
satisfy you? (Laughter.), The doctor then resumed his reading, but had not gone far before some
political illusions to the state of the poor were introduced. This drew forth loud cries of “Order."
The Chairman. This is not to the point, doctor.
Dr Hulley: I say it is.
The Chairman: I can't allow it, and I will not allow it.
Dr Hulley: You cannot hinder it. (“Order, order.”)
The Chairman; Yes, but I can.
The Doctor went on reading notwithstanding the chairman's interference; the meeting, however, refused
to hear him, and his voice was drowned in cries of "Order, order," Shame!" Some allusion being made
in his letter to a deed of settlement to be brought forward at that meeting, the Chairman said there was
no deed of settlement to be brought forward; that was not correct.
Dr Hulley: No matter; I shall read this letter.
Mr Robert Gallagher: Really, this is very disorderly.
Dr Hulley: I don't care whether it is disorderly or not; I will read it. He then went on reading, amidst great
confusion. He then alluded to his having been accused of using blasphemous language at the last
meeting, and took occasion to repeat the language complained of in an aggregated form, upon which
Mr Robert Gardner rose and asked: Are we really to be permitted to hear anything of this sort? It is an
outrage upon every feeling of decency.
The Chairman: Well, I cannot put him down.
Mr Looney: He cannot be put down, unless he is turned out.
The doctor continued his reading.
Mr T. P. Bunting: Mr Chairman, I rise to order, and am therefore entitled to a hearing before Dr Hulley.
Dr Hulley: You are not.
Mr Bunting: I beg to point out to you that the practice of public meetings, and in which they are supported
by the law, as I have heard it laid down, is, that if any gentleman persists in speaking when the chairman
decides that he shall not have a hearing, it is your duty to put him out; I insist on you doing that duty.
(Applause and laughter.)
The Chairman: I shall be very glad to depute thee to that office. (Great laughter.)
The reading still proceeded. In the course of which Mr Giles observed that if Dr Hulley was desirous of
vindicating himself from the charge of being a Socialist, the best way for him to do it would be through
the medium of the public press.
Dr Hulley, who had interposed one or two irrelevant interruptions in the course of the discussion, here
called out to ask the chairman, whether the animals were to be sold or not? (Laughter).
Mr Andrew Hall moved the thanks of the meeting to the auditors for the past year:- Messrs Absalom
Watkin, Sharrocks, and George Hayward.
Dr Hulley seconded the motion.
Dr Hulley asked what they intended to do with those who were determined not to pay the advance on
their shares?
The Chairman: That would be an after consideration, Doctor.

MR SCHOLEFIELD (THE CHAIRMAN) WERE SERIOUSLY, AND MANY OF THE
CHARTIST DANGEROUSLY WOUNDED.
About eleven o’clock, Dr. Hulli, (sic) who had been on the platform, arrived, and informed us that
he had been engaged for more than two hours in dressing the wounds of Chartists, two of
whom, he said, were likely to lose their intellect and become idiots for life, while many others
were dangerously injured. One man fainted while he was dressing his head. Bedsides those
whom I have seen, and those dressed by Dr. Hulli, there are others here much more
dangerously wounded.

Railton, the latter two were Hall of Science victims, poor Railton, carrying his arm in a sling, got in and

handed to us, in which we give the following extracts: -- " I attended yesterday and had the body
exhumed. The Coroner refuses to have another enquiry. It is my opinion, that the man was murdered.
The inhabitants of all grades in politics are dissatisfied with the decision of the Jury, and have entered

dreadfully bruised, three bruises on the back of the neck, three bruises on the left part of the abdomen,

then labouring under a severe attack of inflammation, which rendered it totally impossible for him to
attend to his appointment.

At the Borough Court, on Friday, a young man, named Edward Margraves, was charged by Mr. R. C.
Hulley, surgeon, with having defrauded him under the following circumstances:- Mr. Hulley stated that
he took the prisoner into his service about six months ago, and that he agreed to give him board, &c.
for his services as bookkeeper, and clothing whilst he remained in his situation. About two weeks ago,
he had provided him with a new suit of clothes; and on discharging him last week, for some irregularity,
the prisoner had taken the clothes with him. He had also ordered a hat, without the sanction of Mr.
Hulley. the complainant did not wish to convict the prisoner, but merely applied for the recovery of his
clothes. The defendant then handed a paper to the bench, which Mr. Hulley had wished the prisoner to
sign, since his discharge, to the effect that he had agreed not to take the clothes with him on leaving
Mr. Hulley's employment. That document, however, he had refused to sign; and there being no felonious
charge against him, he was discharged.

DEFEAT OF O’BRIEN, BAIRSTOW, AND THE OTHER “TORY TOOLS” AT MANCHESTER AND

Dr. Hully proposed, and many others seconded, that three groans be given to Bairstow and O’Brien,
which was responded to in right earnest. Dr. Hully then proposed, seconded by nearly the whole of the
audience, thee hearty cheers for Feargus O’Connor, Esq. which were given, and their stentorian voices,
clapping and stamping, made the building ring. Thus ended O’Brien’s humbug in Manchester. He or
any other may rest satisfied they cannot decoy the Manchester people. The youthful victors went of their
own accord; the Chartists holding their usual meeting at the Carpenters’ Hall at the same time.

Croft, for the purpose of laying before the rate-payers the counsel's opinion relative to the legality of the
five Shilling rate; and, also, for carrying out the objects of the Rate-payers Association. (Incl.) Dr Hulley

council and the board of guardians.

1846 Oct 9 - Manchester Times and Gazette - Ward Meetings -Representation of St John’s Ward - nomination of a
Candidate. Mr George Alcock nominated Dr Hulley. Mr William Ashton seconded the nomination. Dr
Hulley stated that it would be the height of his ambition to reduce the extravagant salaries of the public
servants, for he felt them to be an iniquitous oppression. The first thing he should do, if elected, would be
to ascertain what was the amount of the services rendered by Mr Heron, for his £1500. Dr Hulley was in
favour of an equalisation of the price of gas, and was also favourable to improvements being effected
gradually. A show of hands was then asked of those parties who were favourable to the return of Mr
Smith. In our opinion about 40 hands were held up for Mr Smith. The show was then taken for Mr
Bowker, when 36 hands were counted. Some gentlemen insisted that only 31 hands were held up for Mr
Smith and that consequently the majority was in favour of Mr Bowker. The chairman then requested
those in favour of Mr Smith to stand up on the right side of the room, and those in favour of Mr Bowker to
stand on the other, so that the actual position of the vote might be without difficulty ascertained. This
created dissatisfaction among the friends of Dr Hulley, who insisted that the hands should be counted,
and that they would not have fair play if the room was divided into two sides. A scene of considerable
confusion and uproar followed, in the midst of which the meeting broke up, without any decision having
been come to, shortly before 11 o'clock.

(held in a large, low room adjoining the bowling green of the Shakespeare Inn on the Stockport road.
Mr. BRIGHT addressed the meeting for about an hour.)
DR. HULLEY then came forward, amid some confusion, to put some questions. he said he was a friend
to Mr Bright, and was one of his canvassers; and he only supported him because he was a bold,
straightforward, noble character. (Hear.) His (Dr. Hulley's) class of people were politicians of a most
notorious kind; they could either put a member in or kick him out, just as they thought proper. - ("Oh!
oh! " and laughter.) The questions he was about to put affected all the community. The first was, was
Mr. Bright in favour of a new poor-law system, partially or generally?
DR. HULLEY: Are you in favour of the power of the three commissioners?
DR. HULLEY: Are you in favour of the plurality of votes in vestries?
DR. HULLEY: Are you in favour of the new poor-law separation of man and wife?
DR. HULLEY: Are you in favour of our boards of guardians being empowered to borrow heavy loans of
money from the government to build workhouses (I would say English bastilles) and schools and the
like, with our money?
DR. HULLEY said he was perfectly satisfied, as far as he was concerned; but he would vote with the
party to which he belonged. - ("Oh," and laughter.)
DR. HULLEY said he was confident that all would run the right way, that were for Mr. Bright: and
nobody else. - (Three cheers were then given for Mr. Bright and three cheers for Dr. Hulley.)

asserted that his party (the party interested in his questions, and the responses thereto) could put in or

INSOLVENT COURT, LANCASTER
December 5th, 1851
---------------------------
Re - ROBERT CHURCHMAN HULLEY
---------------------
[From the Short-hand Notes of T. M. Bussey.]

ON Friday, Dec. 5th, ROBERT CHURCHMAN HULLEY, described in his schedule as formerly of 25, St John- street, and late of 49, Great Jackson-street, Manchester, Doctor of Medicine, came up for hearing before J. Addi- son, Esq. Judge of the County court of Lancaster. His debts amounted to £514; his only assets were, excepted articles £2.10s.7d;;and two debts described as doubtful, amounting £180. The causes of Insolvency, as stated in his schedule, are attributed to losses in Railway speculations and bad debts; also ill health, through rheumatic attacks since 1847. His schedule also shewed that his professional income since 1844, averaged £300 a year, and that he lost by Railway speculations between 1844 and 1849 inclusive, £700. There appeared, also, a sum of £90, paid to the Insolvent as compensation for
an injury alleged to have been received by him in the collision in the tunnel on the Birkenhead, Lancashire and Cheshire Junction Railway, in May last - he was severely examined on this point. His statements, as will be perceived below, were, in almost every point, directly contradicted by other witnesses.

Having appeared in Court:--

Mr. Sowley, Barrister, said: I attend here to oppose the Insolvent on behalf of Mr. Gamon. (To the Insolvent ): Now, Mr. Hulley, it’s a very unpleasant question for me to put to you: but do you believe in any future state of rewards and punishment ?
Insolvent : I do.
Mr. Sowler: have you not been a leader of the Socialists in Manchester ?
Insolvent: no, I never entered one.
Mr. Sowler: I asked if you had ever been a leader of the Socialists ?
Insolvent: never in my life.
Mr. Sowler: Have you ever attended any meeting of the Socialists in Camp-Field ?
Insolvent: I was never at a Socialist meeting in my life.
Mr. Sowler: Have you ever advocated the doctrines of Socialism on any other occasion or at any other place?
Insolvent: No, I have not.
Mr. Sowler: Then I am clearly to understand that the oath you have now taken is binding on your con-
science ?
Insolvent: Yes.
Mr. Sowler: Now I understand that you were at Chester Races in the May of this year, when an accident happened in the tunnel at Sutton ?
Insolvent: I was.
Mr. Sowler: Did you sustain any injury ?
Insolvent: Yes.
Mr. Sowler: Of what sort ?
Insolvent: Dislocation of the ankle and concussion and spitting of blood.
Mr. Sowler: I believe you have been afflicted with chronic rheumatism for some years?
Insolvent: I have.
Mr. Sowler: Do you know of a person of the name of Tassie ? (Peter Tassick in 1851 census)
Insolvent: I do not.
Mr. Sowler: Who is he ?
Insolvent: He lives opposite me. He is a low character, and keeps a Beerhouse.
Mr. Sowler: He is here to day, I believe ?
Insolvent: Yes.
Mr. Sowler: I believe you were in the first train in the collision ?
Insolvent: I was not.
Mr. Sowler: Then, in what train ?
Insolvent: I was in the middle train, I believe.
Mr. Sowler: Now on the morning after the accident, did you call at Tassie’s house ?
Insolvent: I did not.
Mr. Sowler: Did you not call at Tassie’s house and tell him of the accident ?
Insolvent: In fact, he is a character I never associate with.
Mr. Sowler: were you tipsy that morning?
Insolvent: I was not.
Mr. Sowler: Did you go home in a cab with three hams ?
Insolvent: I went home in cab, but I took no hams with me.
Mr. Sowler: Did you go to the Liverpool Railway Station to meet your Aunt ?
Insolvent: No I did not.
Mr. Sowler: Now, on that night were you in Tassie’s house ?
Insolvent: I was not.
Mr. Sowler: Were you in Tassie’s house at all, about the period of the accident in the tunnel?
Insolvent: I was not.
Mr. Sowler: You were not ?
Insolvent: I cannot say that I was there for some days after. I will swear that I was laid-up, six weeks by the accident, and was attended by a medical man.
Mr. Sowler: Will you swear that you were not in Tassie’s house ?
Insolvent: to the best of my knowledge I was not.
Mr. Sowler: Will you swear that you were not ?
Insolvent: I cannot swear that I was not, because I have attended the family.
Mr. Sowler: Did you get tipsy at Tassie’s ?
Insolvent: Never in my life.
Mr. Sowler: Did you go to the Elllesmere Inn, in Water street, with Tassie ?
Insolvent: Never, except to attend Mr. Jones, who has departed.
Mr. Sowler: Where did he go to ?
Insolvent: He’s dead.
Mr. Sowler: Was he the landlord of the Earl of Ellesmere Inn?
Insolvent: Yes.
Mr. Sowler: Di you meet Tassie there ?
Insolvent: No.
Mr. Sowler: Did he not, in a jocular way, say that if you were in the tunnel you ought to claim compen-
sation ?
Insolvent Never.
Mr. Sowler: did you claim compensation?
Insolvent: I did.
Mr. Sowler: How much did you claim ?
Insolvent. (To the Judge) Are these questions that I am to answer ?
His Honour: Yes.
Insolvent: I received £90 ; my claim was for £150.
Mr. Sowler: did you not tell Tassie it was your intention to claim £150 ?
Insolvent: Tassie called at my house frequently when I was in bed, and wanted some of the money, but
I would not give him any.
Mr. Sowler: Why did Tassie call, if he knew nothing about the claim for compensation ?
Insolvent: He frequently called and asked how much money I had got; I thought it impudent to ask me such questions when I was dangerously ill in bed. Tassie asked me what I received; I would not satisfy him, and he met me, called me every villain that was, because I would not give him that money.
Mr. Sowler: It’s not the first time you’ve been called a rascal.
Insolvent: I’m a better man in Manchester than you are.
Mr. Sowler: You had better not indulge in such personalities. How did it happen that Mr. Tassie called on you at all, if he was not aware of your claim fro compensation ?
Insolvent: I cannot tell; many people call at my house.
Mr. Sowler: How did he know about it ?
Insolvent: I cannot tell; it was generally known that I was one who met with an accident.
Mr. Sowler: Do you mean to tell his Honour that you never mentioned to Tassie anything about this accident ?
Insolvent: No, I never did.
Mr. Sowler: do you mean to swear that you never mentioned anything at all about this accident ?
Insolvent: I mean to swear positively I did not.
Mr. Sowler: Do you know how Tassie happened to know you had a claim against the Company ?
Insolvent: I cannot tell.
Mr. Sowler: Can you tell how it happened that he was entitled to a share in the compensation ?
Insolvent: I know nothing about it - I know nothing of Tassie.
Mr. Sowler: You mean to swear that nothing in the world took place between you and Tassie, to induce Tassie to believe he was entitled to sme share of the compensation ?
Insolvent: No.
Mr. Sowler: Did you ask Tassie when the Board of Directors met ?
Insolvent: Never.
Mr. Sowler: did you read to Tassie the notice of your claim to the Company ?
Insolvent: No.
Mr Sowler: Did you sign that in Tassie’s presence, and send it off to the post ?
Insolvent: I am not aware that I did; Tassie might be in the house, but I cannot tell if I signed it in his pres-
ence or not.
Mr. Sowler: When did you take to your bed after the accident ?
Insolvent: I took my bed about the same time - I couldn’t walk.
Mr. Sowler: Did you go home straight to bed ?
Insolvent: I did.
Mr. Sowler: And you were never out in any part of Manchester between the time of taking your bed and the accident happening ?
Insolvent: I was out the first two or three days - I was lame and couldn’t walk - I took a cab everywhere I
went - I went out and found I was not able to attend to my business, and then I was laid-up. I was very ill : my ankle was dislocated ; and there was spitting of blood at the same time. The medical attendant of the Company visited me.
Mr. Sowler: How soon after did he visit you ?
Insolvent: It might be a fortnight or three weeks after. the Company wrote a very respective letter to me, and Mr. Harrison waited on me.
Mr. Sowler: So it was a fortnight or three weeks before a surgeon attended you at all ?
Insolvent: He had notice given him : but in consesequence of so many being injured, it was impossible to
attend on all.
Mr. Sowler: How many persons were injured - were they all living in Manchester ?
Insolvent: No.
Mr. Sowler: How many were there living in Manchester ?
Insolvent: I cannot say.
Mr. Sowler: You told me that so many persons were injured, and had to be attended to, that the surgeon couldn’t come sooner to you.
Insolvent: I did not say so.
Mr. Sowler: You derived some property, I believe, from an aunt or a sister ?
Insolvent: Yes, in 1845.
Mr. Sowler: From whom ?
Insolvent: The little I had I got from my sister.
Mr. Sowler: How much did she leave you ?
Insolvent: Very little.
Mr. Sowler: She left your niece, Sarah Hulley, some property ?
Insolvent: I think she did.
Mr. Sowler: You cannot remember, perhaps, that your share was nearly £3000.
Insolvent: It was nothing at all of the sort, or else I wouldn’t be here
Mr. Sowler: There was a field on Frodsham Marsh left you ?
Insolvent: No, sir.
Mr Sowler: What ! none let to John falconer for £15 a year ?
Insolvent: That has gone out; I have nothing to do with it.
Mr. Sowler: Was there not a field in Frodsham left to you, let to Falconer ?
Insolvent: I am not aware of it. (A Will was here handed to the Insolvent.)
Mr. Sowler: Is that your sister’s will? Look at the writing in the top corner.
Insolvent: I should say that that is not my sister’s writing in the corner at the top.
Mr. Sowler: Is that your sister’s will ?
Insolvent: I am not aware that it is.
Mr. Sowler: have you ever seen it before ?
Insolvent: I never have.
Mr. Sowler: Upon your oath, have you ever seen it before ?
Insolvent: No I have not.
Mr. Sowler: Will you swear that you did not take this very document to Mr. Nicholls’, the attorney’s office, in Manchester ?
Insolvent: I am not aware that I did.
Mr. Sowler: Will you swear that you did not ?
Insolvent: I cannot swear.
Mr. Sowler: Now on your solemn oath, did you or did you not ?
The Insolvent made no reply.
Mr. Sowler repeated: Upon your solemn oath, did you or did you not ?
Insolvent: I did not.
Mr. Sowler: Now, I give you another opportunity. -Did you or did you not, ever take this document to Mr.
Nicholls’ office, in King-street, Manchester ?
Insolvent: I cannot say that I took that same document.
Mr. Sowler: Now, no prevarication.
Insolvent: I cannot say.
Mr. Sowler: Did you or did you not ?
Insolvent: I did not that I am aware of.
Mr. Sowler: Did you or did you not ?
Insolvent: I should say I did not.
Mr. Sowler: Were you not trustee under your sister’s will ?
Insolvent: I was.
Mr. Sowler: Now, I ask you again, did you or did you not ?
Insolvent: I did not.
Mr. Sowler: Did you not only take it, but ask him to make a copy of it for Mr. Barlow ?
Insolvent: I cannot recollect that I did.
Mr. Sowler: Yes or no ?
Insolvent: Mr. Nicholls was my sister’s solicitor.
Mr. Sowler: Did you or did you not ?
Insolvent: I should say I did not.
Mr. Sowler: Did you or did you not ?
Insolvent: I did not.
Mr. Sowler: Now, again, about this field at Frodsham - Was not one field let to Mr. John Falconer and another let to Mr. William Lewis ?
Insolvent: They came into my possession; but they were not let to them when I had them.
Mr. Sowler: Did they ever come into your possession ?
Insolvent: They have been and they have gone out.
Mr. Sowler: Tell me how they have gone out ?
Insolvent: It is a family matter; I shall not answer the question.
Mr. Sowler: I beg your pardon, you will. We suspect there are a good deal of family matters in this business that want bringing to light. How did they go out of your possession ?
Insolvent: Through Railway speculations.
Mr. Sowler: To whom did they go ?
Insolvent: One of the family.
Mr. Sowler: How did you get the money ?
The Insolvent made no reply.
His Honour: Has they been your sister’s ?
Insolvent: They had.
Mr. Sowler: To whom did they go ?
Insolvent: They went to the trustees of my brother’s family - the trustees of my niece and nephew.
Mr. Sowler: And the advanced you the money ?
Insolvent: Yes.
Mr. Sowler: How much ?
Insolvent: I don’t know any sum they advanced me; I had to give them up.
Mr. Sowler: How much money did you get from the trustees?
Insolvent: I cannot tell; I got into great difficulties, and signed over.
Mr. Sowler: who were the trustees ?
Insolvent: Mr. Speed, of Liverpool, his sister, and someone else.
Mr. Sowler: Upon your oath, were you not a trustee ?
Insolvent: I was not.
Mr. Sowler: What was Speed the trustee of ?
Insolvent: My brother’s estate.
Mr Sowler: Who was the other trustee ?
Insolvent: there were two brothers and the sister.
Mr. Sowler: Were you included in the trust at all?
Insolvent: I was not.
Mr. Sowler: You’ll swear that ?
Insolvent: I will.
Mr. Sowler: You came into possession of your sister’s furniture ?
Insolvent: Yes.
Mr. Sowler: What was it worth ?
Insolvent: I have entered it in my schedule ; mine and hers as £119.
Mr. Sowler: Was it not inured for £500 ?
Insolvent: It was insured when my sister was in Manchester, but is not now.
Mr. Sowler: Do you remember that this endorsement was on the policy, “The within name Miss Sarah Hulley being now dead, the interest in this policy will, in future, be vested in Robert Churchman Hulley, M.D., who has removed the within named property to a private dwelling -house, brick and slated, being No. 25, in St John’s street, where the same continues to be insured by this policy, and not elsewhere” ?
Insolvent: Yes.
Mr. Sowler: For how much was that insured ?
Insolvent: I think it was either £30 or £500.
Mr. Sowler: What became of the furniture ?
Insolvent: I had an action at law for advocating Free Trade principles. I got into a law suit, and was prosecuted by Mr. Chew, who sits beside you, for £200, for telling him that he was expelled from the Independent Order of Odd Fellows for fraud. He recovered £200 damages. He brought an action for libel against me. That is the way in which my difficulties commenced at first.
Mr. Sowler: What became of your furniture ?
Insolvent: It was sold in St. John’s-street, on the 20th December, 1850. Some part of it went to my house.
Mr. Sowler: What was the value ?
Insolvent: I should say about £50 worth went there - to Great Jackson-street.
Mr. Sowler: Did not your sister give to a nephew, John Hulley, by will £200; and to a niece, Sarah, £200.
Insolvent: She did.
Mr Sowler: Where is that money ?
Insolvent (To the Judge) Am I obliged to answer that ?
His Honour: If you received it you are.
Insolvent: I used a little more of the trust money than was my own, and gave up the money. The children have not suffered one farthing by me.
Mr. Sowler: Have they attained their majority ?
Insolvent: The eldest has. I am not a trustee under the will now, but I was.
Mr. Sowler: How came you to be deprived of that trust ?
Insolvent: I had been spending some of the money.
Mr. Sowler: Did you renounce or were you opposed?
Insolvent: I had been spending some of the money, and I gave up the trust to my co-executor, under an in-
strument called power of attorney.
Mr. Sowler: The earliest debt in the schedule is dated 1811. Now, on the 19th of August , 1845, did he
give you £100 for it ?
Insolvent: I think he did.
Mr. Sowler: Didn’t he pay you the whole of the money ?
Insolvent: No: I don’t know whether I received £100 myself or not, but I cannot charge my memory with it.
Mr. Sowler: upon your oath, cannot you give a better answer than that ?
Insolvent: I cannot; but I should say I did not receive the whole; I cannot say that I got £100.
Mr. Sowler: You said you did a little while ago; what did you mean by it ?
Insolvent: these transaction were so long ago that I cannot remember.
Mr. Sowler: Now, was not that very money paid to you in Mr. Nicholls’ office ?
Insolvent: I cannot say; my memory is not as good as it has been. I will swear that I have no recollection
of it.
Mr. Sowler: On the 9th of May , 1846, was the property in Stock-street, Cheetham, on mortgage to Miss
Hulley sold ?
Insolvent: it was.
Mr. Sowler: For how much ?
Insolvent: £420, to Mr. John Barlow.
Mr. Sowler: Was not the £420 paid to you on the 24th July 1846 ?
Insolvent: the whole of it was not paid to me.
Mr. Sowler: How much ?
Insolvent: Mr. Nicholls’ charged about £50 or £60 for his services.
Mr. Sowler: How much money did you get ?
Insolvent: I think there was £400 paid.
Mr. Sowler: Did that go in Railway speculations too ?
Insolvent: Yes; it all went in that and the law suit.
Mr. Sowler: Had you any property in Heathfield ?
Insolvent: No.
Mr. Sowler: There’s £150 down in the schedule, lent to Mr. Heath, of Heathfield. Was not the property on
Heathfield sold ?
Insolvent: It was.
Mr. Sowler: did you get anything from it ?
Insolvent: No.
Mr. Sowler: Was not the mortgage on your estate for this property paid by Mr. Heath ?
Insolvent: It was not.
Mr. Sowler: Did Miss Hulley lend Mr. Hath £5000 ?
Insolvent: She did a little; I can’t say how much; she lent him merely on note of hand.
Mr Sowler: will you swear to that ?
Insolvent: I will.
Mr. Sowler: Will you swer there was no mortgage on the property to Mr. Heath ?
Insolvent: No, there was not.
Mr. Sowler: Will you swear that positively ?
Insolvent: I will.
Mr. Sowler: Were you not manufacturing cloth ain Great Bridgewater-street ?
Insolvent: never.
Mr. Sowler: had you any looms there ?
Insolvent: No, nor anywhere else.
Mr. Sowler: do you know anything about looms ?
Insolvent: Not a word.
Mr Sowler: Did you not tell Mr. Wood to go and value this property ?
Insolvent: No, never in my life. I had no property to value.
Mr. Sowler: Now, mind; I have a document in my hand. Was not the sum of £600 lent to Mr. Heath by Miss Hulley, and was it not paid after her death
Insolvent: I cannot tell. Some of that money at the present time has not been paid.
Mr. Sowler: haven’t you had it yourself ?
Insolvent: No.
Mr. Sowler: Have you had no part of it ?
Insolvent: I may have had a little part of it, but I cannot say how much precisely.
Mr. Sowler: And do you still persist on saying that this money was not lent on mortgage ?
Insolvent: I will swear that it is not.
Mr. Sowler: And, that that mortgage was not paid after Miss Hulley’s death ?
Insolvent: I will swear that it is not paid off yet.
Mr. Sowler: What became of your furniture in Great Jackson-street ?
Insolvent: At the time I was involved in recovering this £150, I had an assize trial in London. The record
was withdrawn by Mr. Cooper, my solicitor, without my sanction, and the bill was £48.
Mr. Sowler: What became of the furniture ?
Insolvent: I sold the furniture to carry on the action.
Mr. Sowler: Who to ?
Insolvent: Brokers and different persons. Some things were pawned.
Mr. Sowler: Among other things did you pawn two gold watches ?
Insolvent: I dare say I have.
Mr. Sowler: Upon your oath have you not, at Mr. Hunt’s ?
insolvent: I will not answer that.
Mr. Sowler: You must - at 2, Cumberland-street, you know ?
Insolvent: I pawned one for £2 and lost the ticket, and I cannot get it.
Mr. Sowler: Did you pawn two ?
Insolvent: I only had one.
Mr Sowler: Will you swear that you did not pawn two gold watches ?
Insolvent: I will.
Mr. Sowler: Only one ?
Insolvent: I have pawned it at different times.
Mr. Sowler: is it the same watch, then pawned over and over again ?
Insolvent: I won’t swear that it was or it was not.
Mr. Sowler: To whom did this furniture of yours go?
Insolvent: I cannot name anybody to whom I sold it. I sold my furniture about two years ago.
Mr. Sowler: To whom ?
Insolvent: I sold it.
Mr. Sowler: To whom ?
Insolvent: I decline to answer, unless his Honour wishes.
Mr. Sowler: To whom did you sell it ?
Insolvent: I will not tell you.
His Honour: Tell us as well as you are able.
Insolvent: I had a sale. I had a little furniture on the 20th December, 1850, and out of that I sold for £119. I had very little left, which went into the small house.
Mr. Sowler: How much was left after the sale ?
Insolvent: I cannot say.
Mr. Sowler: You took some of the furniture to a smaller house; what became of that ?
Insolvent: I have sold it since.
Mr. Sowler: You told us you had a sale in December, 1850; do you mean to swear that the furniture was not sold in 1849 ?
Insolvent: No, it was sold in 1850. (see Manchester Guardian 15 Dec 1849, Manchester Times 19 Dec 1849)
Mr. Sowler: Who is Mr. Willoughby, your detaining creditor ?
Insolvent: He lives at Cheetwood Hall.
Mr. Sowler: Is it Mr. James or Mr. Joseph ?
Insolvent: Mr Joseph.
Mr. Sowler: did he ever take the benefit of the act here ?
Insolvent: Not him, it was one of his brothers.
Mr. Sowler: Have you ever sent anyone here to take the benefit of the act ?
Insolvent: Yes, I sent John Brown. I lent him money to the amount of £30.
Mr. Sowler: What became of him ?
Insolvent: He was remanded for two months.
Mr. Sowler: Was that on your retainer ?
Insolvent: he was remanded, but on what his Honour didn’t say.
Mr Sowler: Was his petition, first of all, dismissed ?
Insolvent: I cannot say.
Mr. Sowler: How many times did he petition ?
Insolvent: Twice.
Mr. Sowler: Was it not dismissed in the first instance ?
Insolvent: that’s two or three years ago.
Mr. Sowler: You say that Mr. Willoughby is your detaining creditor; how did the debt accrue to Mr. Willoughby ?
Insolvent: It was money borrowed at different times.
Mr. Sowler: Is Mr. Willoughby here today ?
Insolvent: I cannot say.
Mr. Sowler: What security did you give him ?
Insolvent: I have given him I.O.U.’s at different times.
Mr. Sowler: The very day before you came here, did you give Mr. Willoughby a promissory note for £27 ?
Insolvent: I owe him £27, and he’s got security for it.
Mr. Sowler repeated: Did you give him, on the day before you came here, a promissory note for £27 ?
Insolvent gave no reply.
His Honor: Did you ?
Insolvent: I did a little before; I’ll not tell your Honor a falsehood. Perhaps a day or two before.
Mr. Sowler: Was that not for the purpose of supporting Mr. Willoughby’s proof of the debt ?
Insolvent made no reply.
His Honor: He put you in friendly, I suppose ?
Insolvent: Yes, your Honor, I’ll tell the truth.
Mr. Sowler: You confess, then, that this was a friendly arrest. Now, did Mr. Willoughby ever advance you one farthing of that £27 ?
Insolvent: Yes.
Mr. Sowler: What is Mr. Willoughby ?
Insolvent: A private gentleman.
Mr. Sowler: in no way of business ?
Insolvent: I am not aware that he is.
Mr. Sowler: Don’t you know that his father is agent of the New Quay Company, at Manchester - does not his father maintain him ?
Insolvent: I am not aware of it.
Mr. Sowler: You sold a horse, just before you came here, for £18 ?
Insolvent: yes, I did, sometime before.
Mr. Sowler: How long ?
Insolvent: I cannot exactly call to my memory.
His Honor: A week, or a fortnight ?
Insolvent: About, perhaps.
Mr. Sowler: is there any account of that in your schedule ?
Insolvent: it is in the schedule.
Mr. Sowler: To whom did you sell the horse ?
Insolvent: To Mr. Burgess, a gentleman, living at Hulme.
His Honor: It is put here as having been sold on the 14th of May.
Mr. Sowler: To be sure.
His Honor: And he came here on the 13th of November.
Mr. Sowler: This Insolvent, your Honour will bear in mind, has denied that he is the owner of any
machinery in Great Bridgewater-street ; and, also, every thing that I have asked him about Tassie and the claim for compensation. I now propose to call Mr. Wood and Mr. Tassie to prove these facts.
MR. ROBERT WOOD, of Manchester, Auctioneer, was then called by MR. SOWLER, and having been
sworn, said : - On the second of November last, the Insolvent called upon me to value some furniture in his house in Great Jackson-st. I did not value, but took an inventory of it. I have the inventory in court. The furniture would be worth from £50 to £60. the same day I saw the Insolvent’s books in Oldham-street. They were in the Doctor’s possession: examined them, and found they contained entries of his professional business. [These books the Insolvent did not file with his Schedule.] Insolvent told me that he was in difficulties, and would go to Lancaster. he also told me that he had twelve power looms, but did not say where they were, and wished me to value them without seeing them, but I refused. Power Looms complete are worth about £10 each. I was at Insolvent’s house on the 12th November last,
and there were present, Insolvent, Willoughby, the detaining Creditor, Mr. Burgess, Mr. Taylor, and myself. A horse was then sold to Burgess by Insolvent for £18,and £14 was paid for it, and Insolvent said he had had £4 before. The horse was not delivered to Burgess, and I never saw it. Considered the whole transaction to be a subterfuge. At the same time Insolvent gave Willoughby a promissory note for £27 but received no cash. The note and receipt were written by Taylor. This happened in the afternoon of the day Insolvent went to gaol. There was a cab waiting for him, and he went by the Night Train to Lancaster to be arrested.

Cross-examined by Insolvent

Have you not written to me for £2 since I came here?
Witness: Yes, and little enough too, for the trouble I’ve had in dancing after your business for two or
three weeks.
Insolvent: Did not my servant girl give you half-a-crown to send me some postage stamps ?
Witness: No: she gave me sixpence, and I put two stamps on two letters for you, and the other four I
enclosed in the last letter. You told me before you came here that the best portion of your furniture was
in custody of a lady who is kept by a friend of yours,.and that you had every confidence in the gentleman himself, but none in the woman. (Laughter.)
On MR. PETER TASSIE*, of Great Jackson-street, Beerhouse-keeper and Mechanic, being called, - Stated, - I have known Insolvent intimately for thirteen months, and by sight for two years. He lives opposite my house; I know that Insolvent carried on business as a Cloth Manufacturer in Great Bridgewater-street, and had Power Looms of his own there.

[Here the Insolvent desired his legal adviser to admit three looms, and afterwards nine looms, but he declined, stating that he would not be privy to any perjury.]

Insolvent told me he had removed the whole of his sister’s furniture from his house in St. John-street, to Great Jackson-street, with the exception of a small quantity, which he was obliged to sell, as he had no room for them. I went with him to Hunt’s, the Pawn-brokers in Cumberland-street, about six months ago, to enquire about a gold watch, the ticket of which the Doctor had lost. We were unable to find the watch. The Insolvent then told me that he had two gold watches and other property there. In March last, Insolvent told me that he and another Trustee had money in the Funds and that the other Trustee did not know that he drew it. That he must attend personally to draw it, and intended to go to the Exhibition, and would draw it then. In May last, Insolvent also told me he was going to Frodsham, to draw the rents of two fields there, and wanted me to go with him. He told me his share of Mr. Churchman’s property was £3,000. In May last, Insolvent went to Chester Races, and wanted me to go with him. I saw him the morning after his return, and he told me that he was in the first train in the collision in Sutton Tunnel, but that he was so drunk he knew nothing about it, and that he rode home in a cab with three hams. Insolvent was then as well as he is now, and did not walk lame. He always walked with a stick. Insolvent said he was going to meet his Aunt at the Railway. The same evening Insolvent came to my house drunk, and said his Aunt had not come. The day after, Insolvent’s Aunt came, and I saw Insolvent again at night, and he said he had seen her off by the train. Insolvent was tipsy that night. I walked with him the next day, or day
after, to Manchester, and he was not lame at all, and we went to the Ellesmere Inn, in Water-street, and the talk there was of the late Railway accident, when witness remarked in joke to the Insolvent “Doctor, you were there you should send in a claim for compensation.” Insolvent said he would, and asked me how much should he ask. I replied “ you know best yourself”. He then said he would ask for 150 guineas. At that time Insolvent was as well as ever I had known him, and had not mentioned one word before of any injury whatever. Afterwards, he complained of the severe internal injury he had suffered. A few days later he sent for me and read to me his application to the Railway Company. He was then well, and walked out with me, and asked me when the Board of Directors met. He was confined to his bed on the Monday or Tuesday following and lay there about four weeks. He afterwards told me that he had not come to any arrangement with the Railway Company. I thought the whole matter was a joke.

Cross-examined by Insolvent
Did you ever borrow any money from me ?
Witness: Yes, and I have lent you money. I am surety for you to a loan society, and yet, you say that you did not
associate with me, and that I was a low character.
Insolvent: Did you not send to my servant to get some of my old clothes ?
Witness: No, I did not. I would not wear them.
His Honour then asked Insolvent if he had anything to say to the Court, but he declined to address it.
Mr. Sowler: I do not know what to desire your Honour to do with this petition; it certainly is the most disgraceful
case I have ever known and I must leave it in your hands.
His Honour instantly dismissed the petition.

J.B. NORMANTON, PRINTER, 5, LOWER KING STREET

1851 09 Dec - Liverpool Mercury Lancaster Insolvent Court. At the insolvent court, held on Friday, before J. Addison,
Esq, Judge,
Robert Churchman Hulley, of Great Jackson-street, Manchester, a person well known throughout the
county as a free-trade agitator, appeared for examination. He was described in the schedule as a doctor
of medicine and it was also stated that his insolvency had arisen from railway speculations, bad debts,
and ill-health.
Mr Sowler, barrister, opposed on behalf of Mr Gayman, a solicitor, of Manchester, and subjected the
insolvent to a very lengthy examination, in the course of which he stated that he was at Chester races, in
May last, and was in the middle of train in the Sutton Tunnel, when an accident occurred. Was injured
in the accident, and claimed compensation from the company. Fixed the amount of compensation at
£150, but only received £90. Would swear that he was injured in the accident, and that he was laid up for
six weeks with a dislocated ankle and internal injuries. It appeared in the course of the examination that
the detaining creditor was Mr Joseph Willoughby, described as of Cheetwood-Hall, gentleman; that a
day or two before insolvent’s arrest he gave Mr Willoughby a promissory note for £27 for the purpose of
supporting proof of that debt, and that at the same time, insolvent sold horses for £18, which had been
entered in the schedule as having been sold in May. Insolvent has denied ever having anything to do
with power-looms, and to ever having told a man named Tassie that at the time of the accident in Sutton
tunnel occurred he was tipsy, and took no notice of anything, and that he went home in a cab drug with
three hams. Tassie had never remarked to insolvent in a joke that he was in the tunnel, and ought to
claim compensation.
Mr Sowler, to rebut the insolvent’s statements, called Mr Robert Wood an auctioneer, of Manchester,
who deposed to having been told by the insolvent, that he had 12 power-looms, which he wished
witness to value for him.
Peter Tassie, of Great Jackson-Street, Manchester, beerseller, proved that insolvent had carried on
business in Bridgwater-street, Manchester, as a cloth a manufacturer, where he had 12 power-looms
complete. In May last, insolvent went to Chester races, and told witness that he was in the first train in
this Sutton tunnel collision, but did not know anything about it, as he was drunk. Insolvent was then quite
well, and was going to meet his aunt at the railway. A few days afterwards witness was with the
insolvent at the Earl of Ellesmere Inn, when the late accident was talked of. I'm witness remarked that as
insolvent was there he should send in a claim for compensation. He said that he would, and would ask
150 guineas. At that time, he was as well as ever witness knew him in his life, and had not mentioned
one word of his having received any injury and whatever. He afterwards complained of the severe
internal injuries he had suffered. His honour dismissed the petition.

1854 07 Feb - Liverpool Mercury - Court of Passage. The business of this court was opened yesterday morning, before
Edward James, Esq, Q.C. assessor. Hully v. Saul and Martindale. The plaintiff in this case was Mr Robert
Churchman Hully, a surgeon, belonging to Manchester, and the defendants Messrs Saul, Martindale,
and Co., emigration agents, Waterloo-road. On the 5th of July last, the plaintiff entered into an
engagement with the defendants to go out to Quebec as surgeon on board the ship Milliceti, for the sum
of £25 and a free passage, payment of £10 to be made before the vessel left Liverpool, and the balance
in Quebec.
On the 25th of July, he took his testimonials before the government agents, to get them passed, and
afterwards left them for safety with Mr Saul. These testimonials consisted of a surgeon's diploma, a
physician's degree, and all his certificates. The defendants paid him £10 in advance., but a
dispute occurred between the parties, relative to a claim put in by the plaintiff for compensation for the
time of detention from the 5th to the 25th. The present action was brought to recover the diplomas,
and such damages at the hands of the jury as might be awarded for loss sustained by the plaintiff
through such detention. Mr Aston appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Milward for the defence.
A witness, named Roberts, proved that the plaintiff empowered him to call upon Messrs. Saul and
Martindale on the 27th of July, to inform them that the plaintiff was willing to fulfil his engagement on
being paid detention money; to this Mr Saul objected, and refused to deliver up the diplomas.
Mr Milward, for the defendant contended that that the diplomas were left with the defendants as a
guarantee for the special performance of the agreement; and also that the defendants were not liable, as
they were merely acting as agents for Messrs. Sharples and Jones, the owners; and called Mr Joseph
Martindale, who said that the plaintiff came to him on the 28th July, and asked him for some money, as
a favour. They advanced in £10, and he left his testimonials as security for the completion of the voyage.
The custom was that the surgeon was engaged sometimes by the owners, and sometimes by the
brokers. The Milliceti was detained about 24 days, and the passengers received detention money.
Witnesses were called to give the average length of time usually allowed for detention, among whom
were Mr Johnson and Mr Hill, passenger agents who were of opinion that 14 days was a reasonable
period for detention. Mr Aston contended that the testimonials were not left as a pledge for the
performance of the agreement, as the £10 advance was specially noticed in the agreement as payable
before the vessel left Liverpool. The assessor submitted the question for the consideration of the jury,
whether the sixth plea which had been entered - namely, the refusal of the plaintiff to proceed - had
exonerated the defendants from the agreement. The jury were at the opinion that the plaintiff was not
ready to proceed, and therefore a verdict was entered for the defendants.
Upon that issue, Mr Milward said he might state that Messrs. Saul and Martindale were willing to give up
the documents any day he wished to call for them, and he might keep the £10. The assessor then
submitted the second claim to the jury, relative to the damage sustained by the plaintiff for their
retention, and the question turned upon the reason why the documents were left, the plaintiff saying that
he had left them for his own convenience, but the defendants alleged they had been left as security for
the £10 and the performance of the voyage. If the jury should be of opinion that the documents were not
left as security, he should recommend them to award such damages as would ensure their return to the
plaintiff. The verdict of the jury was for the defendants. The judge then recommended an arrangement
to be entered into, and Mr Milward repeated his previous offer, and a general verdict was entered for the
defendants.

1859 22 Jun - Bendigo Advertiser (Victoria, Australia. : 1855 - 1918) Wednesday 22 June 1859 p 3 Article
DREADFUL ACCIDENT TO TWO MINERS.
A dreadful accident occurred early on Friday morning to two miners, Peter Tong and Jits. Williams,
working on the Union Lead Back Creek. The night shift, on leaving, reported that a blast they had put in
missed fire.
The two men who relieved them went down the hole, and commenced drilling out the charge, when a
terrific explosion ensued. Williams's skull was frightfully injured, part of it was blown away, part was
compressed inwards, and portions of the brain oozed out. Tong's right hand was blown away, and his
left was completely shattered. Drs. Carr, Bunco, Brett, and Hulley, immediately rendered their
assistance. They at once pronounced their opinion that there was no hope of saving the life of Williams.
The poor man died the same evening at about seven o'clock. Tong's right arm was at once amputated
below the elbow, as also portions of the left hand.
We visited him on Sunday morning, and found him cheerful and progressing. He is now in Dr. Brett's
private hospital Williams is said to be a single man, but Tong has a wife and family, residing on Ballarat.
A feeling of general sympathy is everywhere expressed at this lamentable affair. The survivor Tong
believes that, instead of missing fire, the fuze was only an unusually long time in burning. He
attributes this to its bad quality, and says that if gutta percha had been used, the accident would not have
happened. - Maryborough and Dunolly Advertiser, December 14.

FATAL ACCIDENT. —CARELESS USE OF FIRE- ARMS.
An inquest was held by F. M. Laidman Esq., District Coroner at Maryborough, on Monday, on view of
he body of John Smith, who died in the Maryborough Hospital on Saturday last. From the evidence of
Wm. Jewell and Wm.Taylor, it appeared the deceased, in company with witness and others were on
their way from Armstrong's to Lamplough, the New Rush, on Thursday last. While camped on the road
deceased challenged Jewell to shoot at a mark. Jewell took the gun — a double barrel one —and fired,
and deceased fired also. Jewell charged deceased with over loading the gun as it went off with such a
very loud report. On examination it was found that one of the barrels was burst. Jewell said the gun was
of no further use, and took it by the barrels and knocked the stock against a tree. Directly he did this the
gun went off again. The barrel that was supposed to have gone off at the first report had not gone off, but
went off directly it was hit against the tree. The contents of the barrel lodged in deceased's hips. When
they saw that he was wounded, Jewell procured a horse and rode for a doctor. He returned with Dr.
Hulley, who also gave information at the inquest, to the effect that when he was called by Jewell he
found deceased suffering from a guns-shot wound in the hip. Deceased told him that the gun's going
of was purely an accident. Deceased was conveyed to Lamplough, and on the next day (Friday) to the
Maryborough Hospital, where he was admitted on Saturday morning, and died on the same afternoon.
Dr. Dunn, the Resident Surgeon in his evidence, stated that the death of deceased was hastened by his
removal, and that he should not have been removed in the state that he was in. The jury returned. the
following verdict :-" That the deceased died in the Maryborough Hospital on Saturday, the 10th inst.,
from injuries accidentally caused by the explosion of a gun. We do not think that there is any blame to
be attached to the witness Jewell, and that the occurrence was purely accidental" —Maryborough and
Dunolly Advertiser, December 14.

2011 19 Apr - reply to above:

Hello Lindsay
Many thanks for sending the Glasgow University record of the above. I had wondered for many years
whether he had told the truth when he declared himself a student of that university because, as his Notes
in the above FT state, he didn't reply to numerous requests by the British Medical Association for details
of his qualifications. That, together with the fact that he failed his interview in 1835 at Apothecaries' Hall
for his Certificate of Qualification gave rise to some doubts. His record in previous and subsequent years
wasn't that of a typical family doctor, either!

I googled Donnelly New South Wales and came up with the following:
The Donnelly Mine is an open cut and underground gold mine located just off the Yanda Creek
<http://www.bonzle.com/c/a?a=p&p=209000&cmd=sp&c=1&x=146%
2E1415&y=%2D31%2E6466&w=40000&mpsec=0> in central New South Wales a distance of about
530km west-northwest from Sydney <http://www.bonzle.com/c/a? a=p&p=1383&cmd=sp&c=1&x=146%
2E1415&y=%2D31%2E6466&w=40000 &mpsec=0> The Donnelly Mine is at an altitude of
approximately 272m. The nearest populated place is the town of Cobar <http://www.bonzle.com/c/a?
a=p&p=1162 &cmd=sp&c=1&x=146%2E1415&y=%2D31%2E6466&w=40000&mpsec=0> which is
33km away with a population of around 4,100 The nearest sealed road to Donnelly Mine is the Barrier
Highway <http://www.bonzle.com/c/a?a=p&p=168937&cmd=sp&c= 1&x=146%2E1415&y=%2D31%
2E6466&w=40000&mpsec=0> (13.1km away).

He died on the 10th May 1862 at Donnelly so there should be a death cert for him somewhere.

2011 20 Apr - reply from Lindsay Yeates:

Dear Ray,
I think that I might have solved the problem.
(1) From 1788 the "colony" in Eastern Australia was known as "New South Wales" -- with the western
half of the land mass known as "New Holland"..
(2) In 1824, what is now called Tasmania became independent of New South Wales, and was initially
known as "Van Diemen's Land".
(3) On 1 July 1851, what is now known as Victoria, centred on Melbourne (which had been known as
"Port Phillip District"), was declared an independent colony. [this would explain the "Victoria, New
South Wales, Australia" bit]
(4) On 20 July 1851, gold was discovered in Victoria.
(5) There is a very famous gold-mining town in Victoria, originally known as Goldborough, from which
an enormous amount of gold has been taken over the years.
(6) In 1859, Goldborough was renamed Dunolly. [this would allow us to have (albeit a little
geographically imprecise) the "Dunolly, Victoria, New South Wales, Australia"].
Anyway, I am almost 100% certain that it would be the place in Victoria; and, moreover, I am almost
100% certain that it is not the mine near Cobar.

Also, have no access to Ancestry.com <http://Ancestry.com>. But when I put in "1862" as year of death
and "Dunolly, Victoria, Australia" as place of death. A record came up.

Anyway, must get back to my work . . . .

2011 20 Apr - reply to above:

Hello Lindsay
Thanks for the detective work It certainly appears to fit together. I tried to find his death on Ancestry today
but it only showed his baptism, Cheshire Voters' Lists and a few other bits and bobs. I am not signed up
to the highest level so on my next visit to our local library (if it is not closed due to the economic cuts!!) I'll
check the Ancestry Library edition there.

2011 25 Apr - further message from Lindsay Yeates:

Dear Ray,
Forgot to mention . . .
I very strongly suspect that, rather than being a "Doctor of Physics", he would have been a "Doctor of
Physic" -- which is an archaic manner of referring to a university qualified (rather than qualified through
an apprenticeship) man who specializes in the application of medicines (viz., physic), rather than the
performance of surgery.
Apparently, it still obtained in 1841 at Cambridge University:
<http://books.google.com.au/books?id=9h8CAAAAYAAJ&dq=%22doctor%20of%
20physic%22&pg=PA27#v=onepage&q=%22doctor%20of%20physic%22&f=false
<http://books.google.com.au/books?id=9h8CAAAAYAAJ&dq=%22doctor%20of%
20physic%22&pg=PA27>>

Also, I am almost certain that the first testamur he received from Glasgow would have said "Chirurgiae
Magister" (Master of Surgery), and the second "Medicinæ Doctor" (Doctor of Medicine).

Therefore, given the times, and given the absence of precise English "labels" on either of the testamurs
of his degrees, "Doctor of Physic" would have been an entirely reasonable English generic description
of his vocation.
Cheers,
Lindsay

2013 Jan - Extract from a Dissertation submitted for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy

James Braid: Surgeon, Gentleman Scientist, and Hypnotist by Lindsay Bertram Yeates, History and
Philosophy of Science, School of Humanities, Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences, University of New
South Wales, Sydney Australia

Chapter Nine: page 337
(relating to Braid and the Meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science (Manchester,
June 1842)
Braid performed various experiments with different subjects, but he was unsuccessful with Townend’s
son, attributing his failure to the lad’s “excitement” and failure to maintain the ‘double internal and
upward squint’ once his eyelids were closed. Braid sought audience volunteers. The only offer came
from local surgeon, Dr. Hulley.‡ Braid, who was acquainted with Hulley, rejected his offer because
“[his] mind… would be actively engaged in studying the phenomena, instead of becoming passive”.

Appendix Fourteen: Biographical Details of Selected Participants page 794
Hulley, R.C.: Robert Churchman Hulley (1809-1862), C.M. (Glasgow, 1834), M.D. (Glasgow, 1835),
L.S.A., M.R.C.P.S. (Glasgow), a surgeon and doctor of physic. His grandfather, his father and his brother
were also medical men. In 1851, he sought to be declared insolvent through ill-health, bad debts,
gambling and railway share speculation.
A member of the Chartist Movement, he was an advocate of social reform in the 1840s and 1850s.
Having left Manchester, Hulley died in Australia, at Dunolly, Victoria on 10 May 1862 (he was mentioned
in a press report of a shooting death as already practising medicine in Dunolly in late 1859).

Hello Stephen
Thank you for your reply. Here is the information which I attempted to send, edited in view of the
additional references added to the Hulley entry.
John Nevitt Hulley is shown as being settled in Australia by 1858 and marked "dead" on the Victorian
Medical Board list of 1862 file. My records show that he died in Manchester in 1840!! Source:- 1840 Jun
5 - Liverpool Mercury - Deaths - at the house of his brother, Dr Hulley, St John-Street, Manchester, Mr
John Nevett Hulley, surgeon, late of this town.
His younger brother Robert Churchman Hulley - also a surgeon - emigrated to Australia sometime in the
1850s (date unknown) and died in Australia, at Dunolly, Victoria on 10 May 1862 - source - Somerset
House Will and Admin indexes. A Dr. Hulley (no first name) was mentioned in a press report of a
shooting death as already practising medicine in Dunolly in late 1859.
RC Hulley was a bit of a dodgy character as may be gathered from his various exploits:

1840 12 Dec - Manchester Times and Gazette: AGM of the Zoological Gardens of Manchester - crossed swords with the
proprietors;

1851 05 Dec - appeared at the Insolvency Court, Lancaster. His attempt to be declared bankrupt was dismissed, the
Crown barrister declared the case to be “the most disgraceful case I have ever known” ;

1842 26 Feb - Manchester Times and Gazette: "..... followed by Dr Hulley, who commenced an attack upon the Anti-
Corn-Law League, and Mr Cobden". Hulley was a fervent member of the Chartist Movement ;

1854 07 Feb - Liverpool Mercury - Plaintiff in case of payment of passage to New York;

1855 27 Sep - Co-defendant in Chancery case concerning the Will of his sister Sarah Hulley. (he stole the inheritance
that was meant for his nephew and niece, children of his late brother John Nevitt Hulley);

From the above information, I have concluded that Robert C. stole the identity of his dead elder brother
John Nevitt when he emigrated to Australia in order to hide the truth about himself and his court room
exploits in England. His true ID only came out after his death when his niece administered his estate.

Regarding the additional references added to his entry in the AMPI, some of these are very useful in
that they help to show when Robert Churchman Hulley came to Australia. The last UK reference I have
for him is on 02 Nov 1855. He was registered in the Australian Medical Journal in 1858; he arrived
before 18 November 1858 (see Argus (Melbourne dated 18 Nov 1858). I was aware of the newspaper
report dated 22 June 1859 but would be interested in his AMJ registration entry and the Argus
(Melbourne) report.
The reference to John Hulley dated 27 Dec 1862 should be omitted from the AMPI entry. This John
Hulley was a son of John Nevitt Hulley born in 1832 and went on to establish the British Olympic
movement at his Liverpool gymnasium in 1865. I have a website which covers in full his life and times
- see <http://www.johnhulley-olympics.co.uk>.
Both Robert Churchman Hulley born 1809 and John Nevitt Hulley born 1803 are shown on the
Cheshire03 Family Tree on my website at www.hulley.info <http://www.hulley.info>
I hope that this information will be useful for your purpose.
Best wishes

3. From SD to RH

Dear Ray,
Many thanks for your long and informative email. Congratulations on unravelling the mystery of the 'John
Levett Hulley' in Victoria.
I have added two entries to AMPI database to accommodate this situation, so there are now the following
records on the website:
John Levett Hulley (1) = the original JLH who died at Manchester in 1840 John Levett Hulley (2) = the
false identity established by RCH Robert Churchman Hulley = the surgeon who died at Dunolly in 1862
I have deleted from the record for JLH (2) (the original AMPI record) the reference to the report in the
Australian Medical Journal of his registration by the Medical Board of Victoria - it is superfluous given the
official record, which appears in the Victoria Government Gazette of January 1859.
It is a pity there is no record available of the qualifications with which RCH alias JLH (2) was registered in
Victoria.
If anything further comes to light at this end I will let you know
Kind regards,
Stephen
