That's not impossible Derek but if she did it wasn't the CRs posted above as the age is wrong per the corresponding newspaper articles.

Well, it's probably a good thing that her reputation will remain untarnished! (unless you find anything else) :-)

Barry, do you have any reason to believe your Mary Ann led a life of crime, or did you just happen across the records?

Barry

Barry Report 8 Mar 2013 20:01

I doubt the criminal record relates to the same person. Although, if this is the right one she was a widow by 1861:

Mary Ann Haley

"Hi thanks for info but is this the Mary from my tree does it give any more information?
My Mary was married to John Haley and she lived in Shipley and Bradford

Barry"

Barry, see my comments above. You only get the bare minimum information on the criminal registers, I'm afraid.

Barry

Barry Report 8 Mar 2013 19:47

ok probably not the same person

I've had a look in the newspaper archives for articles that relate to those trials. There seems to be a woman of that name in the Leeds area who was a serial offender (petty crimes).

She is described in one article as "a young woman known to the police" - I don't think that description would be used for a woman born 1812!

From the innformation you have provided how is anyone able to "check if this is the right person"

MC has given you the CR details, but this could be any Mary Ann Haley as no age or marital status is given - nor an address to see if she was there on the 1871 census!

Hello
was hoping someone who has access to the criminal register could do a look up for me.
Its for a Mary Ann Haley born 1812 Haliday.
The convictions are for 1869 and 1871 she was married to a John Haley and they lived in Shipley/Bradford.

Would like to check if this is the right person.

Thanks :-)
