Ned Kelly’s Crimes

  1. 1. Ned Kelly’s Crimes <ul><li>By Martin. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t click on the pictures. </li></ul>
  2. 2. Ned’s early life <ul><li>Ned was born at Beveridge, Wallan Wallan in 1854. He was born to 2 Irish Catholics John “Red” Kelly and Ellen Quinn. The couple fled Van Diemens Land (Tasmania) when the Quinn's objected to their marriage and settled in Port Phillip. John struggled to make a living so he had to resort to stealing horses. He was eventually arrested and sentenced but he died serving out his sentence. When John Kelly died Ned became “the man of the family” and tried to supplement his family’s income by taking a job as a timber cutter and a rural worker. Ned’s jobs did not provide a suitable income so Ellen was forced to resort to stealing horses. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Fitzpatrick accusation <ul><li>Fitzpatrick accused Ned and Dan Kelly of trying to kill him when he was arresting Dan. But this accusation was false, Ned was, in fact, 400 miles away but the police would obviously believe Fitzpatrick even though he was labelled a liar. After the accusation was lodged a police man- hunt was issued for the Kelly Gang. </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Hunt <ul><li>A police squad set out to Stringybark Creek where the Kelly’s were ‘supposed’ to be hiding. The Kelly’s were hiding out not far from Stringybark and they did not know that the police were coming after them until some nearby Kelly sympathisers told the Kelly's that their were police nearby. </li></ul><ul><li>So the Kelly gang set out to find the Police and so they did. There were 2 guarding the camp. Ned told them to surrender and make some tea . One obeyed but the other did not; instead he bolted for their rifles but did not get far because Ned put a bullet through his temple killing him. </li></ul><ul><li>When another 2 officers came back the prisoner told his sergeant that they were surrounded but his sergeant thought that he was joking and he went to draw his rifle but was stopped when one of the other gang members shot him dead. The other officer bolted to the cover of a tree but it wasn’t enough cover 1 member of the Kelly gang shot him dead also. The prisoner dashed on to a horse and began galloping away but Ned was quick to react he shot him in the chest and he fell off his horse. Ned could see that he was mortally wounded and was going to die so Ned put him out of his misery. A few days after the murders at Stringybark the police found the bodies. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Ned’s last stand <ul><li>After more bank robberies, the Kelly Gang had their 'last stand' in the small town of Glenrowan, Victoria, where they took 60 hostages in a hotel. </li></ul><ul><li>In the battle with police three gang members - Dan Kelly, Joe Byrne and Steve Hart - were killed and a wounded. </li></ul><ul><li>Ned was arrested and charged with the murder of a policeman. </li></ul><ul><li>Ned Kelly was tried and convicted of the murder </li></ul><ul><li>of Constable Lonnigan at Stringybark Creek and </li></ul><ul><li>hanged at the Melbourne Gaol. </li></ul>
