'A Lost Child
Mrs Annie Bass, wife of Andrew Bass, a pile-driver, at present lying dangerously ill in the Alfred Hospital, has reported to the police that on the 9th inst. a girl named "Tottie" Mitchell, 18 years of age. whom she had previously known as a domestic servant employed by a friend, induced her to permit her little girl, Clara, who is three years of age, to go with her for a while to 36 or 46 Madeline-street, Carlton. The girl and the child have both disappeared, and the mother is anxious to obtain tidings of her child, and would be grateful to anyone who would give the police any information likely to assist them in their search for her.'

From Ancestry

1861 departed Victoria for Otago per Genii, born about 1835 (as Walter Penketh)

1862 departed Victoria for London per Swiftsure, born about 1831 (as W Penketh)

1863 arrived Melbourne per Morning Light from Liverpool, born about 1831 (as Walter Penketh) and under the same number 4499 - Alfred Penketh 36y; Hughes family, James 25y, Ann 25y, Eliza infant, John 41y, Ann 15y


Note - have not seen any evidence of further troubles with the law, can you maybe link to the site with the claim?

From Grey River Argus, Volume VII, Issue 464, 5 January 1869, Page 2

'A young man named Walter Penketh, better known as Wat. the Baker, died here on Monday morning, after only a week's illness...


This is probably him in Victoria in 1860

'If Walter Penketh, late of the Dredge, Geelong, will call at the Supreme Court Hotel on Monday, 26th inst., he will hear of employment'
