12 Aug 1819:
John Lulham and James Lulham were indicted for feloniously stealing, at Palmer, in this county, on the of April last, 24 sheep, the property of Richard Verrall. Mr. Long conducted the prosecution. It appeared in evidence, that on the morning of the day mentioned in the indictment the Prosecutor, a respectable farmer, missed the sheep in question, from a flock consisting of 120.
The next day the Prisoners were found selling their plunder to a butcher a few miles distant, one passing himself as a farmer and the other as his drover.
The evidence of the Prisoners’ guilt being clearly made out, they were found Guilty, and received sentence of Death, and they were taught to expect no mercy.
