Old Bailey:
JOHANNA QUIN, Theft > simple larceny, 29th October 1829.
Offence: Theft > simple larceny
Verdict: Guilty
Punishment: Transportation
JOHANNA QUIN was indicted for stealing, on the 9th of September, 1 half-sovereign, and nine half-crowns, the monies of Bridget Lycett.

BRIDGET LYCETT. I am single, and live at Mr. Stanley’s - the prisoner was there, minding a room for some persons who were out; she slept in the same bed with me - I had a box in that room, and 3l. 12s. 6d. in it - it was locked; I missed one half-sovereign, and nine half-crowns from it on the 9th of September - I had the key in my pocket tied to my side; I had left the box locked, but I found it unlocked - I told the prisoner I missed the money, and that she was the thief; she denied it - there was no one else to take it.

CATHERINE STANLEY. I am mistress of the house the prisoner was employed to mind - the room was open in the day; I never gave the prisoner directions to have any key made.

WILLIAM PERRY. I am in the service of a gentleman- my brother keeps a smith’s shop in Blandford-mews, On the 9th of September the prisoner came while I was there, and asked for a key for a box; I shewed her a large bundle - she selected one, and went away for three or four minutes; she then came back and said it would go in, but would not turn - I picked her out two or three more; she took them, came back, and said neither of them would do - on the Monday following the officer came to me; I went and saw the keys, which I believe were what I gave her - one of them locked and unlocked the box.

EDWARD BURRIDGE The prosecutrix applied to me on Saturday, the 12th of September; I took the prisoner at the house, and said it was on suspicion of taking money- she said, “She can’t swear to money;” the prosecutrix said she knew she had taken it - the prisoner said any body else might have taken it; I then went and got the keys, and this one opens the box.

Prisoner. I leave it to your mercy.

GUILTY. Aged 20.
