Commitments to Borough Gaol. Wednesday Henry Dansie, aged 11, Wm. Alexander, aged 15, and John Mast, aged 11 years, by W. Batley and J. Aldrich, Essrs. charged with having stolen, Buflon’s Natural History abridged, the property of Mr. Edward Hunt: Robert Thwaite, aged aged 15, for having stolen two books of Hymns, the property of Mr. Stephen Piper: the aforesaid Henry Dansie and Robert Thwaite stand further committed, for stealing one book of Cowper’s Poems, the property of Mr. S. H. Cowell, of St. Lawrence parish.
Ipswich Journal, 3 Jan 1824.

Henry Dansie and Henry Laws, the former aged 15 years, and the latter 14, were tried for having stolen, on the 27th of December last, a box of paints , and a box value 15s. from the shop of Mr Stephen Piper, bookseller, in the Buttermarket. Henry Dansie was found Guilty, and Henry Laws Not Guilty. The same prisoners Dansie and Laws, together with James Stockings Norman, aged 11 years, were then charged with having stolen from Mr. Piper’s shop, on the 23d of December, a box of paints value 20s. and a book called the Beauties of Basco.  Dansie and Laws were found guilty, and Norman acquitted.  Dansie, though so young, has been in gaol several times, and 12 months ago was sentenced to 3 months imprisonment and a severe flogging for robbing Mr. Robert Harmer’s shop; he seems to have been at the head of a gang of juvenile depredators,  and as he seemed incorrigible, the Court sentenced him to 7 years transportation.
