At the Preston Quarter Sessions last week, Thomas Mawdsley, John Tassiker, Thomas Norcross, William Hoole, and J. Houghton, the Houghton poachers, were all found guilty; the first four were sentenced to seven years transportation, but as several respectable persons gave Houghton a good character, the Court considered his case deserving of mitigation, and sentence him to two years’ imprisonment only in Lancaster Castle.
Thomas Norcross was listed as 20 years old on arrival and was transported for ‘poaching and stealing a gun’.
Thomas was 5’6½” tall, single, brown hair, light grey eyes, illiterate.
