Old Bailey - (t18140420-12)
297. JOSEPH LAD was indicted for feloniously stealing, on the 26th of March , one silk handkerchief, value 5 s. the property of William Jordan , from his person .

WILLIAM JORDAN . I am a bombazeen manufacturer . On the evening of the 26th of March, I was in Holborn about seven o’clock, I perceived my handkerchief being torn from my pocket; I immediately seized the person by the collar that I suspected doing it. When I had hold of him he gave it to the prisoner at the bar; I let go of the person that I had hold of, and followed the prisoner. I seized him by the collar and demanded my handkerchief; he said, if it was mine I should have it. He took it from his pocket and said he had just picked it up in the street. I took him into a shop and sent for a constable. That is all that passed.

JOHN MOBES . I am a constable. I took the prisoner in custody. This is the handkerchief. The prisoner said he picked it up in the street.

Prosecutor. That is my handkerchief.

Q. Are you sure that you saw the other lad give the handkerchief to the prisoner - A. Yes, I am sure of it.

Prisoner’s Defence. I saw the gentleman lay hold of the lad by the collar; he came after me and took me in custody. I picked the handkerchief up off the pavement.

GUILTY , aged 18.

Transported for Life .

London jury, before Mr. Recorder.

In the colony, Joseph married Elizabeth Everingham.
They married August 26th 1837, at Windsor.
Elizabeth was born in the colony (1805) and was the daughter of Matthew Everingham (First Fleet Convict, ‘Scarborough’, 1788) and Elizabeth Rymes (Second Fleet Convict, ‘Neptune’, 1790).
Elizabeth was a much married young lady.
Her previous marriages were to Charles Butler (Convict, ‘Morley’, 1817) in 1822, he was executed for murder in 1826. She then married John Harman (Convict, ‘Minerva’, 1821) in 1827.
John Harman died in 1835 and she subsequently married Joseph Ladd.
It would appear that after some time this marriage broke down and Elizabeth was ‘married’ to George Bowd (Convict, ‘Ocean’, 1815), records state in 1856, however, this was before the death of Joseph Ladd.
