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.
Salisbury Journal, 17 Mar 1834

During the week, the following convicts have been removed from our county gaol, at at Fisherton Anger, and put on board the Leviathan hulk, in Portsmouth harbour, in order for transportation; namely, Jonas Backhouse, horse-stealing; Charles King, Enoch Heaven, sheep-stealing; Daniel Sprowles, stealing a pewter jug and basin, life.—John Telling, stealing hay; Edward Johnson, stealing trousers; George Hitchins, receiving stolen property; George Fisher and Thomas Squire, poaching in the night —seven years each.—Also George Carty convicted at the Lent Assizes, 1834, for house-breaking, and sentenced to one year’s imprisonment to hard labour, and and then to be transported for life.
