On This Day ……. 1st April 1854

On the 1st April 1854, Catherine Smith, female turnkey of the Geelong gaol, described a lunatic prison Ann Connelly. The Prisoner was rather violent and was very dirty in her habits, and required attendance as a child. She has been obliged to keep her bed from dysentery, and had to keep one of the female prisoners constantly in attendance upon her. She has been well and carefully treated, the doctor seeing her constantly. She has been confined to her cell for the last fortnight. Her cell was very offensive, notwithstanding all our efforts to keep it otherwise. Staff had to separate her in consequence, and place her in a private cell, which is very small, and exposed to the noise arising from a woman, who is constantly making an uproar.

 

On This Day – 13th March 1867

Convict Elizabeth O’Connor was charged at the Geelong Gaol with disobedience of orders by the Female Turnkey Mary Byrne and was sentenced to 48 hours solitary confinement with bread and water by the Governor.
