The business of the Assizes for the county of Wilts commenced at Salisbury on Monday last. ...
The trials of the prisoners were then proceeded on and sixteen were capitally convicted, viz.-
...Philip Poore, for stealing part of three flitches of bacon and three cheeses, the property of Mr James Bailey, of Downton; ... Sentence of death was passed on them, also on James Rawlins, convicted of sheep stealing, at the last Summer Assizes, but whose judgement was then respited. Rawlins, Poore, Fisher, Bolton, Neale, Thomas Jones, Poticary, and Taylor, were, however, all reprieved before the judges left the city.
