Alexander 8 months inprisionment and Frank 2 months for felony and grand???? Destroying a will

William in 1834 age 23 sentenced to death for burglary changed to transportation for life. He was born about 1811 perhaps a different family.

The probate record makes sense as one of her sons was called Charles William John Scorey.
Gees......Alexander given the death penalty - scary stuff.

Going to look into the free ancestry trial

Do you have access to Ancestry ?

England & Wales, Criminal Registers, 1791-1892

moonstar Report 8 Apr 2013 14:13

Tenerife Sun

Tenerife Sun Report 8 Apr 2013 14:12

There is something about her in a Hampshirenewspaper in 1838 but although I should be able to download the page the site won't let me do it at the moment. I will keep trying.
