The British Newspaper Archive reveals that the Governor murders of the Mawbey family was reported in newspapers throughout the UK.
Evening Telegraph, Angus, Scotland, Wed 29 August 1900 - Fearful outrage by blacks
Gloucester Citizen, Gloucestershire, England, Wed 29 August 1900 - An Australian tragedy
Manchester Courier and Lancaster General Advertiser, Greater Manchester, England - Murder by Australian blacks
Worcestershire Chronicle, Worcestershire, England, Sat 1 September 1900 - Family murdered by blacks
In the course of my research, I also found the atrocity mentioned in a Russian newspaper.
I have yet to determine if the story appeared in the London Times.
