Sampson, William Richard (1831–1864)

In 1860 a warrant was issued for the arrest of William Richard Mills Sampson for passing off several cheques which were dishonoured. He was thought to be the ringleader of a gang which were passing themselves off as cattle and horse buyers. At Albury on 17 December 1860, he was sentenced to five years 'on the roads'. The sentence was remitted in January 1864.
