Old Bailey:
THOMAS TEASDALE, JOHN WALTERS, Theft > grand larceny, 10th September 1788.

Offence: Theft > grand larceny
Verdict: Guilty
Punishment: Transportation

THOMAS TEASDALE and JOHN WALTERS were indicted for stealing, on the 25th of August last, two copper saucepans, value 2 s. and a tame Canary bird, value 1 s. the property of John Love .

On the 25th of August last, between six and seven in the morning, I was going to work, and I saw the prisoner, Teasdale, coming from the prosecutor’s with a saucepan in his hand; he said, he was going to get it tinned; I took him back; and saw the prisoner, Walters, ascending out of the prosecutor’s area, climbing over the rails; I took the prisoners into custody.
I stopped Walters, and saw Teasdale in custody of Hammond, with a saucepan; and I saw another saucepan in the area, with a string fastened to it, and to the rails; I drew it up, and Walters was stopped, and a bird was found in his breeches.
I apprehended the prisoner, Walters, and searched him, and found a bird in his breeches.
(The things produced and deposed to.)
Each transported for seven years.

Thomas Teasdale was also on board. He died 24/1/1793.
