Why did Ned Kelly become a bushranger?

Kelly was twelve when his father died, and he was subsequently required to leave school to take on the new position as head of the family. Shortly after this, the Kellys moved to Glenrowan. As a teenager, Ned became involved in petty crimes, regularly targetting the wealthy landowners.

The story goes that Ned Kelly was influenced to become a bushranger. His family was not particularly liked by the law, and so when he was persecuted by a few of the policemen, he reacted and decided to become an outlaw. He figured that if he was going to be charged for something, he would give them a real reason.

Kelly became a protege to another bushranger, Harry Power who was a notorious bushranger of Victoria, originally transported to Van Diemen's Land in 1841 for stealing shoes. Upon his release, he continued his life of crime, which landed him in Pentridge Gaol. He became a bushranger when he escaped from Pentridge in 1869. At first he worked solo, but decided after while that he would like an accomplice. A friend of his named Jack Lloyd had a nephew, Ned Kelly, just 15 years old and already embittered by frequent run-ins with the police. Lloyd recommended the young Ned Kelly to Harry Power. Power became a mentor to Ned Kelly, taking him on as an apprenctice in 1870, and teaching him the finer points of bushranging. This was probably the greatest catalyst to Ned a kelt becoming a bushranger.

Ned Kelly gradually progressed to crimes of increasing seriousness and violence, including bank robbery and murder, soon becoming a hunted man.

What did Ned Kelly do?

Ned Kelly was an Australian bushranger, and arguably one of the best known as he was said to nobly help out the poor (this is a myth). He formed the Kelly gang with his brother Dan Kelly, Steve Hart and Joe Bryne.

Kelly was particularly famous for the siege at Glenrowan when he held an entire town hostage. Following the murder of police informer Aaron Sherritt on 27 June 1880 Ned Kelly's gang expected a large number of police to travel to Glenrowan by train. They tried to get the townsfolk to help lift the rail tracks to cause a derailment, hoping to kill a large number of the expected police. Not many townsfolk were willing to assist, and people were gradually rounded up and held in the Glenrowan Inn so that they could not warn the train.

After several hours, the Kelly gang allowed the more trusted hostages to go home at nightfall, as the train was running late. Local schoolteacher Thomas Curnow was one of those released, and when he heard the approaching train in the early hours of June 28, he ran quickly to warn of the danger ahead.

Wearing their famous armour, the Kelly brothers held a shootout with police. Several hostages were injured in the gun battle and two later died from gunshot wounds. The other Kelly Gang members were killed, and Ned was shot twenty-eight times in the legs, which were unprotected by the armour.

He survived to stand trial, and was sentenced to death by hanging, which occurred in Melbourne on 11 November 1880.
