I have recently found in the 1851 census JOHN BUNNER who I believe could well be my JOHN BANNER born in about 1832 in Bromsgrove Worcs. He is listed as being held at the county goal and house of correction in west Worcester. Source of information is HO107/2042 folio 358 page 11 How can I find out why he was in there? What he had done? Length of time served? Any help and advice would be gratefully received
