At Oxford six prisoners received sentence of death, Thomas Davis, for uttering a Bank of England Note, knowing the same to forged; Thomas Campbell, alias Cammell, for being at large before the expiration term for which he had been ordered be transported; George Hambridge, Anthony Webb, John Webb, and Thomas Andrew, alias Anderson, for sheep-stealing. The five last were reprieved before the Judges left that city;

Thomas Campbell, the felon, who effected very extraordinary escape from Oxford gaol, whilst under sentence of transportation for life for housebreaking about two years since, and who was afterwards taken by Sayers, the officer, and conducted to Bow-street, from whence he again contrived to escape from the strong room with his irons on, - was tried at Oxford on Friday last for that offence, and found guilty.  The prisoner pleaded guilty to the charges preferred against him.
London Courier, 12 Mar 1805.
