SMH date 6th June 1846:
The Council then opened lenders for the supply of road metal, when
the offer of Mr. Samuel Ogden to deliver stone from the Pennant Hill Quarry, at the Parramatta
Gaol, (where it is be [sic] broken by the hard-labour confines) at the rate of 3s. 6d. per ton, was

SMH dated 7th July 1848: Samuel Ogden was indicted for stealing, at Pennant Hills, a
quantity of stone,  the property of J. W. Curran.  Not guilty ; discharged. The prisoner was
defended by Mr, Holroyd, who, on the termination of the trial, made application for a copy of the
proceedings, which was refused by the Court.

Samuel, son of James died at Gladesville in 1878 [ref 9422/1878]
Maria, daughter of [unknown Tunks and Esther A, died Parramatta 1885  [ref 8381/1885]

SMH dated 15th November 1885: Last Friday was tho usual day for general motions, but almost
all the whole of tho time was taken up with a long and technical argument upon the construction
of Borne words in the will of Mr. Samuel Ogden. These words are simple enough, being just
these, "my sons," "my daughters," "my children," and "as aforesaid." People generally 'detest
legal verbiage and the endless repetition of " tho said " this and " the said " that ; but here tho
destination of an enormous property depends upon the proper position of tho above words " as
aforesaid." In this case there were several children of the testator, some specially mentioned in
his will and some not, and the question was whether tho latter should take any benefit under the
will in the case of the children specially mentioned dying. Tho Court said that tho construction of
the words "as aforesaid " depended upon tho context in which they happened to occur. In that
portion of tho will immediately preceding tho paragraph now under consideration there was a
clear intention to give tho property to two sons, two daughters, and a grandson ; in the event of
their dying, to " the survivors of my children as aforesaid," i.e, to the survivors of those children
specifically mentioned. Tho other children, therefore, will take nothing.
