Details: Capt William Andrew Anglem deserted his command on the 'Lucy Ann' in 1835. Weller's correspondence mentions later, 'Anglem's woman and two children are gone by the 'Sydney Packet' to the Neck (Stewart Island).
Previous to this Capt Anglem had taken some Maori prisoners on board his boat and sailed to Sydney with them. They were held as hostages to prevent attack on Weller's settlement by Maori from Cloudy Bay.
