24/9/1792 Caledonian Mercury Midlothian, Scotland:
Court then proceeded to the trial of John Douglas, alias John Currie, shoemaker, Catherine Dawson, his spouse, and Thomas Dick, were accused of stealing a number of articles of wearing apparel from and ale-house where they had been drinking, and being habit and repute common thieves. Catherine Dawson proferred a petition, submitting to manishment from Scotland ; and Douglas, her husband, confessed his guilt : He was sentenced to be whipt, and they were banished for five years.
The Court went to trial upon Thomas Dick, who, upon the proof of habit and repute, turned out to be a notorious offender, and to have undergone several punishments here as well as Edinburgh, of which he was a native. He was condemned to be whipt and transported for fourteen years, (looks like, hard to read) under the certification of death in life of return in that period.
