Verdict Guilty
Sentence Transportation; No Punishment > sentence respited

JOSEPH MANNIKEY and THOMAS KINCAID were indicted for feloniously stealing, on the 4th day of October, one live goose, value 2 s. the goods of Thomas Humphrey.


I live at Mile-end, I lost a goose, I was at market; when I returned I discovered I had lost a goose.


I live at Bethnal-green, I am a cow-keeper, I was looking out of my stable, and saw the two young men take Mr. Humphrey’s goose out of an out-house, it was taken out by means of a stick put over the fence, where he keeps a great many, and they cut its throat in a ditch, and hid it under weeds. I sent to Mr. Humphrey, it was about nine o’clock in the morning; I saw them taken, I am certain they are the two men.

- PRESTON sworn.

I saw the prisoners taken, I saw the goose taken by Fairfax, with its throat cut.


I am quite innocent, I know nothing of the matter.



Tried by the second Middlesex Jury before Mr. Justice HEATH.
[Kincaid: Transportation. See summary.]
[Mannikey: No punishment. See summary.]

Joseph Mannikey was not transported.
