‪#‎OnThisDay‬ in 1870 bushranger Frederick Wordsworth Ward, also known as Captain Thunderbolt, was shot dead.
Ward was the last professional bushranger in NSW when he was killed by Constable Alexander Walker near Uralla. He had escaped from Cockatoo Island while serving a sentence for horse theft in 1856 and settled in the Hunter Valley before taking up bushranging.
Image is from Colonial Secretary: Special bundles, 1826-1982 "New South Wales Police - List of Offenders known as Bushrangers killed or wounded in the colony of New South Wales from March 1862 to 7 June 1870". NRS 906, [1/2326.2; p.90]

On this day in 1813 Blaxland, Lawson & Wentworth departed Sydney on an expedition to find a route over the Blue Mountains.  The trio reached Mt York on May 28 and three days later arrived at Mt Blaxland.  At this point they turned back to Sydney having sighted the plains beyond and found a passage over the Blue Mountains. http://gallery.records.nsw.gov.au/index.php/galleries/westward-ho-a-trip-over-the-blue-mountains/westward-ho-crossing-the-blue-mountains/

‪#‎OnThisDay‬ 24 June 1914 Samuel "Jewey" Freeman was arrested at Strathfield Railway Station while attempting to board a train for Melbourne. A few weeks earlier, Jewey along with Shiner Ryan, successfully pulled off the "Eveleigh Heist", when they robbed the Eveleigh Railway Workshops of their payroll and escaped using a get-away car for the first time in Australia.

The NSW Government's archives & records management authority.
Introduction
We are the NSW Government's archives and records management authority - we manage the NSW State archives collection and set the rules and provide guidance on the management of official records.

The State's archives are a unique and irreplaceable part of our Australian cultural heritage. They document the business of government in New South Wales - and its interaction with people and groups in our society - from the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788 until today. 

Archives are the 'raw material of history' and form part of our collective memory. The records appear in all formats - files, photographs, maps, posters, plans, films, sound recordings and electronic records.

People use the State's archives for many reasons. Public, academic, family and local historians, social and scientific researchers, people establishing their rights and entitlements, authors, the media, students - all are among the regular users of the State's archives. Government agencies, too, make extensive use of the archives.
