Description:
Public Record Office Victoria holds several records documenting William Patrick Marshall. They are not reproduced in full on this page as they contain many pages and some are duplicated. For instance both the Criminal Trial Brief and the Capital Case File contain a copy of the court transcript and are too large to reproduce.

Central Register of Male Prisoners, VPRS 515/P0000, Volume 74, page 294 shows photographs of William taken both when he entered and left the prison. It also gives a physical description of him.

Bound Circulated Photographs and Criminal Offences of Convicted Persons, VPRS 7856/P0001, includes original photographs of convicted persons, listed offences and prior convictions, place and date of birth, details of arrival in Australia (if applicable), education details, distinguishing physical features, 'VR' number reference and Docket number reference.

Although this record duplicates information found in VPRS 515 Central Register of Male Prisoners,in thios instance, it describes an operation scar on William's right groin that is not mentioned in the Prison Register. The series covers the period 1924-1937 only.


The Criminal Trial Brief, VPRS 30/P0000/2079 Case No. 1925/145, contains witness depositions, the court transcripts, copies of applications for assurance and the police investigation into William Marshall’s previous insurance claims and debts to name just a few of the documents.

VPRS 264, Capital Case Files, consists of files compiled to assist the Governor in deciding whether the royal prerogative of mercy should be applied to persons convicted of a capital offence and given the mandatory death sentence. The Capital Case File for William, VPRS 264/P0001, Unit 7, Case File No. 1925/145, contains correspondence from the Inspector General, detectives, three statements from the prisoner, annual letters from Agnes Marshall professing her husband’s innocence and pleading for his release and the investigation into an incident which occurred while William was incarcerated in Pentridge. There is even an assessment of his intelligence and mental age. Again, the digital images are only a portion of the complete file.

The Capital Sentence File, VPRS 1100/POOO0 Unit 5, File No. contains a letter sent by the trial judge to the Attorney-General officially notifying him of the sentence passed on William Patrick Marshall.

Re: Insurances effected by William P. Marshall

Superintendent Potter.

C.I. Branch

(1) I have to report for your information that the above named man, on the 29/11/24 insured a mare in foal with the Pacific Insurance Co.. Ltd., 18 Queen Street, Melbourne, for the sum of £50:0:0. In the proposal form he stated that he had purchased the mare for £50:0:0 and forwarded a cheque for the amount of the premium. On the 4th December, the company wrote to him informing him that as he had stated he had paid £50:0:0 for the mare, and he was asking £50:0:0 for the insurance, they would only insure it for £35:0:0. On the 5th December, Marshall wrote agreeing to accept £35:0:0 insurance.

(2) Before the company answered that letter, they received a telegram on the 10th December informing them that the mare had died. Their adjuster, on making enquiries, had found that Marshall had only paid £21:0:0 for the mare, and they disputed the claim which was never paid.

(3) On the 13th August, 1924, Marshall insured in the same company a draught stallion for £115:0:0, forwarding a check for £9:12:6. On the 26th December 1924, the company received a letter from Marshall informing them the stallion had died and asking for forms to be filled in and he also enquired why he never received the insurance for the other mare. The Company instructed Dr. Jones, Veterinary Surgeon, to hold a post mortem on the stallion, which the doctor

did, and gave a certificate that the animal died from inflammation of bowels and pneumonia. The doctor removed portion of the contents of the stomach of the animal which were retained by Constable Dwyer. On the 27th December, 1923, Marshall insured his wife in the Commonwealth Life Assurance Society, the corner of Swanston and Collins Streets, Melbourne, for the sum of £250:0:0, and on 9th January, 1925, they received a cheque from Marshall in payment of the premium of £10:15:0, which was handed to the bank and dishonoured. They wrote to Marshall on the 12th January, informing him that the cheque was dishonored, and on the 14th January, he wrote a letter to the Company, requesting them to represent the cheque at the bank and asking to be informed when the cheque would be cleared. They wrote to Marshall on the 21st January acknowledging receipt of the letter of the 14th January and stating that the cheque had been represented. Their letter of the 21st was in answer to one from Marshall on the 18th asking why he had not heard about the cheque going through, and, on 23rd January, the Company wrote to him informing him that the cheque had been represented and met at the bank.

During the recent attempt of prisoner Robert Twomey to escape from the division Marshall showed rare courage and devotion to duty in resisting Twomey and in helping the officers of the prison.

A statement from him covering the events that occurred during that hectic ten minutes is attached.

This statement emobodies the evidence which he will give at the trial of Twomey. It has been tested in every possible way and is believed to be true.

No interference LB Attorney General 21 Jul 1936

Apart from this particular incident he has behaved and worked very well over a period of ten years.

His crime was a particularly bad on - attempting to poison his wife for the sake of insurance money. She will not believe him guilty and has visited him and corresponded with him regularly. It is unlikely that he will offend again.

The officers of the prison have asked me to put his case before the Honorable the Attorney General with a recommendation that some portion of his sentence be remitted as a recognition of his conduct during his imprisonment as outlined above.

Advised RB(?) 21/7

In view of theses special circumstances I recommend (1) that Marshall be released on his own bond, such release to take place after trial of Twomey: or (2) that his sentence be reduced from twenty years to fifteen years.

William Patrick Marshall states:-

I am a prisoner in "B" Division, Pentridge. I remember Saturday 27/1/36.

chief warder Topham unlocked my cell in the usual way. I do not know what the time was. It was between 7 a.m. and 7.15 a.m. The nightduty sentries had left the Division. I went through the entrance to the division, and up to the Chief Warder's office. When I was half way to the Chief Warder's office I heard a scream but took no notice, thinking it was a prisoner in the observation cell. When I got to the Chief Warder's office I heard more screams, and ran back to the Division.

I looked for Chief Warder Topham, but could not see him anywhere. The only person I could see in the Division was Prisoner Robert Twomey. Twomey occupied cell No. 132 on No. 6 tier "B" Division, and is one of a few prisoners ususally let out a few minutes before the others by the Chief Warder so that they can assist in the early morning work of the Division.

When I went back to the Division, on hearing the screams, I saw Twomey at the door of his own cell. He pushed the trap-door up and ran across the tier to another cell. He had a bunch of keys in his hand and was trying to take the lock off the cell door. I walked up to Twomey's cell - No. 32, opened the trap-door, and saw Chief Warder Topham lying on the cell fllor. He was lying stretched out on his back on the cell floor. His feet were near the door and his head about the middle of the cell. He was motionless, and I thought he dead. I shut the trap-door. I could see Twomey at the same cell lock, and watching me. I ran to the telephone to give the alarm. Before I reached the telephone Twomey struck me on the neck from behind. He threw his arms around me from behind and dragged me back and said to me: "What are you doing here?" You f-----g bastard!" We struggled for a while, and then Twomey said to me: "Into a cell you go." By this time we were opposite cell No. 151. This is occupied by a prisoner named Gordon, and was unlocked, as he is another of the men let out early. Twomey pushed me in and slammed the door.

Gordon said to me something like: "What's up?" I said: "Twomey has gone mad." The Chief Warder is locked in Twomey's cell and looks as if he is dead." At this stage Prisoner Douglas Robertson - another of the men let out early - pushed Gordon's cell door open and came in. I do not know where he came from. Robertson said: "What's wrong Bill?" I said:" Chief Warder Topham is in Twomey's cell. He is either knocked out or dead." Robertson said: "I wont be in anything like that." Gordon said: "Neither will I" and slammed the cell door shut. This imprisoned the three of us in the cell, as we could not open the door from the inside. Immediately after this I heard a lot of noise coming from the direction of the Dome. I could hear scuffling and scraping of boots. I heard sharp sounds like shots. These sounds may have been made by the broom handle which I saw later, broken up, in the Dome.

The next I heard was almost directly after. Someone ran past the cell we were in calling out: "Where's that Marshall?" I knew it was Twomey's voice. He then came to the door of the cell we were in and said: "Is Marshall in there?" Robertson said: "Yes! He is in here." Twomey pushed the cell door open and and said to me: "Come out here and give me a hand to open this lock." I made no reply, and Twomey caught me by the shoulder and dragged me out of the cell. I said: " I know nothing about locks." Twomey continued to pull me along 6 tier towards the cell he wanted opened. When we were opposite the door of my own cell - No. 149 - he pushed me in. I fell on the floor. Twomey shut the door and bolted it. As I lay in the cell I heard Twomey say to Prisoner Robertson: "Come on Robbie and give me a hand to unlock this cell." Robertson said something to the effect that he would not have anything to do with it. I could still hear someone making efforts to open a cell lock. I heard the 7.15 a.m. bell ring and heard someone run from the direction to which Twomey had gone, and continue running towards the entrance gate. I got up off the floor, and sat on my stool with my head on my hands, leaning on the table.

Then

William Patrick Marshall.

Then Warder Lee opened my cell trap-door and said: "What's the matter with you? Where's the Chief?" I said: "He's in a cell over there," and indicated the cell. Warder Lee opened my cell-door and said: "Come and give me a hand to take him to the office."

Warder Lee opened cell 132. Chief Warder Topham was trying to stand up and I saw a bruise on the left side of his head. I heard him say: "I have just come to." He was very dazed and could not stand. With Warders McMillan and Lee, I helped Chief Warder Topham to his office. Warder Lee said: "Stay here and look after the Chief. We will look for Garton." I stayed with Chief Warder Topham till he was taken away.

As a result of the attacks that Twomey made on me I felt soreness and stiffness in my back and neck, and received treatment for these injuries at the gaol hospital.

I have read this statement. It is true and correct.

The Attorney-General

Dear Sir,

I am taking the liberty of writing to you re my husband, William Patrick Marshall, who 6 years ago received the outrageous sentence of 20 yrs imprisonment for attempting to poison me. I have never believed in his guilt & there has never at any time been any ill-feeling between us. I cannot see where justice is being done to anyone, especially to me, the unfortunate victim of the offence, in keeping my husband in prison & leaving me to battle with our child who has been deprived of both father & mother as I have had to leave him in the country while I work in the city being unable to find work in the country. At present I am in employment but expect at any time to be dismissed & as my child grows old the more it costs me to keep him. My husband had never been in any trouble previous to this & I feel sure that had I been a witness at his trial the verdict would have been different. I feel confident too that if he was given the opportunity to make a fresh start in life he would give no further trouble. I would be deeply grateful if you would have his case reviewed & see if you could not do something to help us. If you could not help me obtain his immediate release could not something be done to have his sentence reduced. This seems a dreadful sentence when men who have even taken life have received much shorter sentences.

Trusting that you will give the matter careful consideration & do what you can to help me in this terrible trouble.

I am

Yours respectfully

re William P. Marshall

For conduct and industry see report of the Governor of the Prison (attached).

Marshall is 28 years of age, married with one child.

He is below average intelligence (Quotient 82, mental age 13 years 1 month).

But he is sufficiently intelligent to do well as a workman in occupations where no great planning skill is required and to manage his affairs prudently.

This intelligence is offset to a certain extent by his belief in his own ability. His actions show that he believes himself to be a shrewd and capable man. In reality he has a large amount of low cunning.

The family history shows that the father died when he was 15 years of age, the mother being left with 8 children, the youngest an infant, the eldest 17 years of age.

In addition the 820 acre farm was mortgaged for £900.

Marshall worked on this farm until he was about 20 years of age when he commenced for himself, sometimes dealing, sometimes share farming, sometimes working for wages.

He rapidly got into debt for it seemed as if his temperamental failing lured him into operations beyond his capacity to manage.

At this stage of my interview with him I found great difficulty in believing what he told me, but finally he confessed to me, almost entirely without emotion, though sometimes with a trace of pride in his astuteness that

(1) following on an accident in which his legs were injured when working at a weir he was paid a considerable sum of money as compensation. He admits that he "wangled" this money and that he threw his stick away and went to work immediately he got the money.

00264-P0001-000007 William Patrick Marshall page 9 edit.jpg 2.

(2) he poisoned his stallion by placing liquid strychnine in its drinking water, and that he arranged to be 30 miles away when the stallion died to establish an alibi. He got £116.12.6 for this.

(3) he had it in his mind to insure his 7 months old baby for £1,000 and then insure it for the insurance money. He said that his mother was against insuring the baby and that he gave way to her so as not to arouse suspicion.

(4) then his thoughts turned to his wife. She was already insured for £250. He arranged for a further sum of £1000. The rest of the story is told in the depositions. He said that it was liquid strychnine that he placed in the medicine on each occasion.

It would require more time interviewing this man than I have at my disposal in order to deal adequately with him, but sufficient has been elicited to show that, morally, he is practically dead-capable of any crime if only it would lead to his monetary advantage.

He has asked that the fact that he has confessed to me should not be made known to his wife. I gave him an assurance that it would not. It seems that she still believes him.

My name is William Patrick Marshall. I reside at Seaton. On Tuesday 10th February 1925 I was interviewed by Constable Downey about Poison being in Some Medicine that I bought at Maffra. I made a statement about it. and when I gave it to him he said it is stated against you that there was Poison in a bottle of Medicine you got for your wife when she was at Cowwarr about a fortnight ago. can you explain anything about that. I said yes I will give you a statement about that.

The facts are. I always use a lot of Strychine with my horses I give it to them to eat in ther feed I also put it in Medicine which I have taken myself and I never found it to do anything any ha-- when my wife was sick in Cowwarr I put a very little bit in her Medicine. but this time it was Chrystals and perhaps it did not Melt and she got to much in one dose. I always found that when I gave it to a horse or took it myself it never done anyharm and always proved good I had a good bit of experi---- with Strychine my Father always used on his raceho--- and it always did them good.

I written this statement myself and it is the truth
