DANIEL LOW and JOHN FOX were indicted for feloniously assaulting William Izod , on the King’s highway, on the 10th of August , at St. Leonard, Shoreditch, putting him in fear, and taking from his person, and against his will, one watch, value 40 s., his property .
WILLIAM IZOD . I am a baker , and live in Harlequin-street, Hoxton. On the 10th of August, about half-past eleven o’clock in the morning, I was going through Spital-square , and was met by three men, the prisoners and another. I am sure of their persons. Low came before me, and threw me back against a window, and drew my watch out, I laid hold of him. Fox was close to him. Fox was on one side, and the other man on the other. Beaumont came up; I said to him, in their presence,
“This young man has robbed me of my watch.” I had hold of Low at the time. He said directly that he had not got it. Beaumont said
“You have, for I saw it in your hand after you took it from him.” He took him in custody. Fox ran away when I secured Low, but the beadle met and stopped him.
Cross-examined by MR. NORRIS. Q. Fox did nothing - A. No; he was close to the others. I saw them all three talking together for several yards before they came up. Fox was stopped ten or eleven houses from where I was robbed. He walked away, but when there was a cry of Stop thief! he ran.
JAMES BEAUMONT . On the 10th of August I saw the two prisoners and another, all three pressing against Izod. I saw Low take the watch from him. I immediately came up, collared Low, and said he had stolen the old gentleman’s watch; he denied it. I saw it in his left hand, and saw him put it behind him, he let it fall, and I picked it up. Fox walked away with the other. I saw them all three pressing on the old gentleman.
Prisoner. LOW. Q. Did not a man in a brown coat pick it up and give it to you - A. No; a man in a brown coat was in their company, he was going to pick it up. I asked what he was going to do with it. He said I will give it to you. I thanked him, and picked it up myself.
WILLIAM IZOD . The watch is mine.
LOW’s Defence. He charged me with it, but I am innocent. Nobody was near me.
LOW - GUILTY . - DEATH . Aged 17.
FOX - GUILTY . - DEATH . Aged 18.
First Middlesex Jury, before Mr. Justice Best.

In the colony, Daniel married Elizabeth Brooker in 1826.
Daniel and Elizabeth were granted permission to marry by Rev. Therry of Sydney on 23 Oct 1826. The permission document recorded that Daniel was aged 23, arrived on the ship Grenada 2, had a life sentence and was at the time, bonded. Elizabeth Broker [sic] was 18 and born in the colony.
Elizabeth was the daughter of Jonathan Brooker (Convict, Atlantic, 1791) and Mary Wade (Convict, Lady Juliana, 1790).

Daniel and Elizabeth had a daughter Sophia, born 1828.  However, I can locate no record at all of the family in the 1828 census or indeed of any further family.  Did they change surnames?
