    • Arrived Swan River 23rd October 1829 and was indentured to Colonel Peter Latour who planned an ambitious emigration scheme on 100,000 acres of land in the Leschenault area. The scheme came to nothing, and within a year most settlers were freed from their indentures.
      -----------------------------------

      In April, 1833 "William Lewington was charged with firing a pistol at Robert Maydwell with the intent to do him some bodily injury." Lewington claimed provocation because his father in law, Maydwell, had tried to persuade his daughter to leave him. Several people attested to the prisoner's excellent character and he was found, after the jury had retired for a short time, not guilty.

      In October of 1833, Wm. Lewington was charged with assaulting and ill-treating his wife. The magistrate bound him over to keep the peace for 12 months. In April, 1843 William Lewington, a market gardener, was in court for failing to pay the promised amount of half a crown to an intelligent, young, educated native named Mooyan. A pony had been delivered as requested, but Lewington maintained that it had been done voluntarily and that there had been no promise of payment. Another native youth, also educated , supported Mooyan's claim and the Commissioner ordered the defendant to pay the sum demanded and costs. Lewington was severely censured for his attempt to defraud Mooyan of payment for his services. The Commissioner continued, "there was nothing more essential to the interests of this community than to impress the natives with confidence in the good faith of the whites." The case was noted as being the first instance in the colony where a native had figured as a plaintiff.
