  • 25 Oct 1883, INSOLVENCY COURT. WEDNESDAY, 24TH OCTOBER. (Before Judge Noel.)
    Re Robert T. Crofts, of Melbourne, provision merchant.— An examination was held in this estate, Mr. Braham appearing for the trustee. The insolvent stated that he had carried on business as a provision merchant in Swanston-street for about twelve years. He was unable to give a statement of the average amount of his weekly receipts, because bis business was a credit one, and he had not kept his receipts for money paid. At the time of the sequestration of his estate he was possessed of some land at Beaconsfield. He had spent £800 on improvements in connection with this property. The leases of two blocks of the land were held by the London Chartered Bank as security for money lent to him. The same bank also held as security an additional piece of land comprising 40 acres.
    Witness had also held some property in High-street, Prahran, but at the time of his insolvency this was registered in his wife's name, she having obtained it from the trustees of witness's former insolvent estate.
    A short time previous to the sequestration of his estate witness had purchased 25 shares in the Benalla Estate Company, which was established for the purpose of mining. These cost him £19 cash, the balance due, £20, not having been paid. He had also bought some shares in the Dark River Company at a cost of £10. Witness had had dealings with Mr. Max Roth for about nine months preceding his insolvency, which for the most part consisted of accommodation bills and the exchange of cheques. The court ordered the insolvent to file a verified account of his dealings with Mr. Roth within ten day, after which the examination was adjourned.24

  • 26 Sep 1885, AN EXPENSIVE JOKE. A peculiar case, arising from the recent strike of the drivers of the Melbourne Tramway and Omnibus Company, came before Mr. Panton, P.M., and several justices, at the District Court on Monday. Robert Francis Crofts, a driver who did not belong to the Coach-drivers' Union, proceeded against two union drivers, named J. P. Burns and H. M'Donald, for having unlawfully assaulted him. Mr. Gillott prosecuted, and Mr. M'Kean appeared for the defence. Crofts said that he was driving an omnibus on the Port Melbourne line on the evening of the 11th inst, and the defendants got on the box seat beside him. They were smoking cigars, and as the omnibus passed under the railway culvert near the Falls-bridge they each put their burning cigars on one of his hands. The consequent pain was very great, and almost caused him to drop the reins. Mr. M'Kean said that no ill-feeling existed between bis clients and the complainant. They gave him some cigars soon after they got on to his omnibus. What they did was a practical joke, and one frequently perpetrated on omnibus drivers. The Bench considered that it was not a joke, but a most serious and cowardly act. The defendants were each fined £3, with 20s. costs, to be levied by distress.11
  • 19 Sep 1891, SUICIDE AT PORT MELBOURNE.
    A man named Francis Robert Crofts committed suicide in a most determined manner by hanging himself to a bedpost at his residence, No. 21 Pickles-street, Port Melbourne, on Sunday night. The deceased went to bed about 11 o'clock, and on Monday morning a lodger named Scolly went into his room at 8 o'clock to call him, and found him hanging quite stiff and cold to the foot of the bed. The rope by which the deceased had hung himself was twisted, into a most scientific nooze, and had been greased so that it would tighten round his throat easily. When the body was found the legs were bent at the knees so that the feet might be clear of the floor. A scrap of paper was found in one of the pockets, on which a farewell was written to the deceased's friends. An inquest was held at the Floodgate Hotel, on Tuesday morning, by Dr. Youl, Mr. A. J. Bain being foreman of the jury, when a verdict was returned that Crofts hung himself when suffering from excessive drinking.12
