THOMAS JOHNSON was charged with stealing two
silver tea-spoons and a pair of silver sugar-tongs from the
Crown and Thistle Inn, North Shields, on the 21st April
Mr Otter stated the case. The facts were short and
plain. The prisoner was discovered coming out of the front
room of the Inn, and on being searched the property was
found in his possession. The prisoner was found guilty
and a previous conviction was recorded. To be transported
seven years.
Note. Thomas was convicted on the same day and by the same court as Andrew Holmes, and yet and was deported on the Joseph Somes some time earlier?
