AUDACIOUS AND VIOLENT ROBBERY.
Emma Roberts, 18, John Ramsden, 20, Mary Ann Ramsden, 22, Ann Crowther, 21, and Eliza Ogden, were indicted for stealing a purse containing forty shillings, from the person of George Clayton.
The indictment contained a variety of counts in which the different prisoners were charged, some with stealing the property, others with receiving it, and others with “aiding and abetting, receiving, harbouring, and maintaining” those who committed the robbery…..
The Jury found all the prisoners guilty, and after an impressive address from the Chairman, they were each sentenced to fourteen years’ transportation.
