Criminal Records

Criminals and family members who found themselves on the wrong side of the law.

This is a list of people who we know appeared before the courts in England in days when minor offences were harshly punished e.g. 7 years transportation for stealing a cheese.

The list comes from a combination of 4 sources
England & Wales, Criminal Registers, Hampshire 1791 to 1892
Calendar of Prisoners at Winchester Goal 1788 to 1847 (our thanks to Carol Medlicott of HGS for this information)
Proceedings of the Old Bailey
