History of the crime of robbery, trial and sentencing

Monday 24 March 1817: The newspaper advised that Henry had been committed to Fisherton Goal, Salisbury and Winchester Journal

Monday 21 July 1817: Had his sentence dealt within the Salisbury Assizes. Salisbury and Winchester Journal

28/07/1817: Henry Angel and George Sheryer were convicted for robbing Harry Witt, on the Highway. It appeared that the prosecutor, who is a baker, residing at Hale, on the 18th of March last took the sum of 6l 10s at Salisbury, for some potatoes which he had sold there, and on his return home, stopped at the George, in Dowtown, where he sat next to the prisoners, and he gave Angel some beer, informing him that he had been to Salisbury and got the money for the potatoes (which Angel, appeared, had helped him to dig) and he added that the money was in his watch pocket.

Between 11 and 12 o'çlock, he left the George in the company of Jacob Spratt and the two prisoners, as all the party lived near together. Whilst proceeding on their way, the prisoners lingered behind, and as soon as Spratt left Witt, in order to go to his house, the prisoners followed Witt, overtook him, knocked him down, and robbed him of the money in his watch pocket.

No words passed during the robbery, but as soon as Witt was released, he said "it was very hard for one neighbour to rob another". In the summing up, the learned Judge made appropriate comments, in the course of which he said, the guilt of Angel was much aggravated by the circumstance of his having been a servant to the prosecutor, whom it was his duty to have protected.

Further to the story: The next day he (Harry Witt) saw Henry Angel thrashing in a barn and said to him "I say, you might as well give me back that money you robbed off me last night".

"AN OLD COLONIST GONE.-The late Mr. Henry Angel who died at Lake Albert, near Wagga, at his residence on the 7th instant, at the age of 91 year, was a colonist for over 60 years, having arrived in the colony in 1819. He first settled in Kiama as a farmer. In 1824 he went with Humo and Hovell's party on the expedition overland to Hobson's Bay. He was one of the first men who crossed the River Murray and was always foremost in any difficult situations or hardships on the journey. Mr. Hume, in his reports of the expedition, frequently mentions the name ot Henry Angel, and speaks highly of his courage and determination. He appears always to have been a man on whom great reliance was placed by the explorers iu any difficulty or hardships.

Mr. Angel afterwards followed the occupation of a farmer and became a squatter on the Murrumbidgee. He eventually settled near Wagga, and became possessed of a considerable landed estate. He was noted in the district for his strict integrity. ln 1832 he married Mary Brooker. There were l6 children of the marriage, eight of whom and the widow and 70 grandchildren survive their father.
