Wilts Lent Assizes
George Carey, a travelling tinker, was convicted of stealing, the house of Thomas Gough, at Tockenham, ? sovereigns and six half-crowns. Gough and his family had left their home to attend their labour, and when they returned they found that the house had been broken into, and the money gone. The prisoner having been seen near the house, suspicion fell upon him. He was pursued, taken, and the money recovered.—Verdict, transportation for life.
