Another notice from the Staffordshire Advertiser of March 1853:
SARAH BROWN, 30, indicted for stealing one hen fowl, the property of William Durbin at Westbromwich, on the 25th February, was found guilty, and sentenced to 3 months’ imprisonment, with hard labour. The prisoner whose husband was transported 4 years ago, had an infant in her arms, and said she had 3 small children besides.
So, whose were the kids? Who ended up with them?
