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.-
...and John Taylor, alias Carver, for breaking into the cheese room of Mr John Tucker, of Leigh, and stealing fourteen or fifteen cheeses.  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.
