Having served his time in Van Diemen's Land Thomas Farrell (also known as John Farrell) became a Police Magistrate in Castlemaine by 1853. Farrell moved to Ballarat in 1854 and worked at the Eureka hotel. He was arrested along with James Bentley, his wife Catherine and hotel servant William Hance for the murder of James Scobie. Initially, the aforementioned were all released due to lack of evidence, however, a witness later appeared providing enough evidence to have all four persons retried for the murder of James Scobie. Farrell, Hance and J. Bentley were all sentenced to serve 3 years of hard labour.
