Committed to our county gaol, John Whitehouse, for stealing a brown gelding, the property of John Jones, Thomas Glover, for stealing a black mare, the property Edward Pugh, of Leighton, Montomeryshire….
Staffordshire Advertiser, 7 July 1821.

Many of the capital convicts received sentence of death at the conclusion of their trials.—Last night John Whitehouse, Thomas Glover, for horse-stealing; James Morris, Matthew Stevenson, John Lumax, Joseph Bentley, and John Cox, for burglary ; and James Adkins, for stealing 40s in a dwelling house; were placed at the bar, when the Judge (Garrow) addressed them in the following terms: “It is a very melancholy conclusion to the labors and duties which have been gone through in this place, to be called upon, in addition to those who have individually had their respective sentences at the conclusion of their trials, to see so large number yet remain to receive theirs ; and the more especially almost every one of you are very young in point of years, yet have been long engaged in the practice of robbing and plundering your neighbours. Some of you have been guilty of robbing one unfortunate man twice. You will do well to put yourselves in a state of preparation for receiving the execution of that sentence, which the law compels me to pass upon you. I have, in a life of long professional practice, seen too much to expect any great efficacy from the exhortations customary these occasions. I shall not, therefore, drag thro’ that ceremony. Your being sentenced to death will probably have more effect on the surrounding audience than any thing that I could say. I shall therefore proceed to pass the dreadful sentence of the law without further preamble.” His Lordship passed sentence of death in the usual terms.
Staffordshire Advertiser, 8 Sep1821.
