Convicted for Poaching. There is a petition for clemency for another person, George Smart, alias George Smith, who was also convicted with Charles Young, which gives some details of the case.

National Archives – Petition record - HO 17/4/10 - Date -1833 Mar 1 – 1833 Apr 30.
6 individual petitions (all from George R Testing, Curate of Maiden Bradley Mere, Wiltshire) and 1 collective petition (2 churchwardens and the gamekeeper to the Duke of Somerset) on behalf of George Smart (alias George Smith) convicted with Charles Young at the Wiltshire [Lent] Assizes at Salisbury in March 1833 for poaching and assault on gamekeeper William Hill. Gaoler’s report; character not known. Grounds for clemency: previous good character; never associated with poaching in the past; curate willing to re-employ him; convicted on suspect evidence - identified by one uncorroborated witness, Philip Barber when other witnesses claimed Smart at home; suggestion that culprit is Isaiah Snook who has similar build and wears similar clothes. Initial sentence: 14 years transportation. Annotated: magistrate John Ravenhill submits his report on the case, he thinks the witness is mistaken and the prisoner worthy of mercy; ordered to penitentiary 27 March 1833. AS 10.
