Map title: The Groundplot of George Worrell's premises, Campbelltown; with the adjoining Lands, as far as appears to be connected with the Death of Frederick Fisher.

This map is part of NRS 292: Papers relating to the prosecution by the Attorney General, of George Worrell for the murder of Frederick Fisher at Campbelltown.

The documents comprise depositions, evidence and exhibits submitted before the Campbelltown Bench of Magistrates and correspondence and notes made before the then Acting Attorney General (W.H. Moore) regarding the case. The papers apparently represent Moore's brief for the case, which was heard before the Supreme Court at Campbelltown on 2 February 1827.

We'd love to hear from you if you use our photos/documents.
