H. C. Wilson (along with his family) was property Manager at Carpentaria Downs in 1908 when Ah Sune the Chinese Gardener and Miss Nellie Duffy were murdered on the 28-9-1908. Billie Wilson (Aboriginal 'boy'), Fanny and Henry Wilson, were all involved in the investigation and trials. Matters were heard in Georgetown before being sent to Townsville. No-one paid for the crimes. There are said to be 27 gravesites at Carpentaria Downs-all burials were 'under suspicious circumstances'.

Billie Wilson was an Aboriginal 'boy' acquired by Henry Charles Wilson and his family. Billy (then about 30) was charged with the murder of Miss Nellie Duffy (governess) on 28-9-1908.

Fanny Wilson, the Manager's wife was held on remand. After a 'third ' and different confession in the Court at Georgetown, the trial shifted to Townsville. Billie never changed the confession as far as his own involvement was concerned.

'The Murder of Nellie Duffy" was written by Stephanie Bennett from Court Records. It's a good read-I won't spoil the rest for you.
