3 individual petitions (prisoner [x2] and John Mackie/John Mackay, shoemaker, the prisoner’s father) on behalf of William Mackie/William Mackay, out pensioner from 2nd Royal Scots Greys/Royal North British Dragoons, now sometimes shoemaker of Falkirk, Stirlingshire, convicted at the ‘last’ Circuit Court at Stirling on 20 April 1826, for stabbing and wounding one of his neighbours during a quarrel. There is a covering letter to a petition on behalf of the commander in chief, Horse Guards; a certificate of character/service from General Sir James Stewart, Baronet and a covering letter to this certificate from William Reddoch. It is requested in the petitions that the prisoner’s wife, Janet Hulley, may accompany the prisoner and be granted a free passage. Grounds for clemency: first offence, wounded neighbour during a quarrel out of the most provoking of circumstances, was intoxicated, accidental crime, the man he assaulted recovered, pleaded guilty, the judge did not hear all the facts about the case, previous good character, his services to army and country, lost an eye during service at Waterloo, receives an army pension, has other family members who have served his majesty, supports his aged parents, a favourable character reference from his Colonel, very patriotic, a young man, married and he has a trade. Initial sentence: transportation for life. AK 3. [Scot]
Date: 1826 May – 1826 June.
