As a bio, Edward Ned Kelly was born in June 1855 at Beveridge, Victoria, the eldest son of John Red Kelly and his wife Ellen, née Quinn.
As a child, Ned Kelly saved another boy from drowning and after that the boy's family awarded him a green silk sash in recognition of his bravery.
But that was pretty much the only good thing he did. Ned Kelly was a notorious criminal, feared around Victoria and beyond as a robber and murderer.
He had numerous encounters with police and he was famous for using a very distinctive armour that he made himself to get protection against bullets.
I recommend you read facts and his complete bio here: wikipedia.org/wiki/Ned_Kelly
