Notley, Joseph (1837–1932)

Mr. Joseph Notley, who died at West Wallsend, N.S. Wales, recently, aged 94 years, played as a boy with Fred. Ward, who afterwards became the bushranger, 'Thunderbolt.' Mr. Notley always maintained that Ward turned to crime through an accidental encounter with a number of horse thieves. Mr. Notley's account was that Ward assisted the thieves to take some stolen horses to Sydney, but was himself ignorant that they had not been lawfully come by. A native of the Lower Hunter district, Mr. Notley saw the beginnings of much northern settlement.
