1193 Caroline Mc Carthy was indicted for stealing, on the
18th of April, nine loaves of bread, value 6s., the goods
of Mary Tibby.

Mary Tibby. The prisoner called on me and got these loaves
for Stevenson, who is a customer of mine; I do not know
that she came on the 18th April – she came several times
and got several loaves from time to time, and stated herself
to be Stevenson’s servant.

George Stevenson. The prisoner had been one week charwoman
to me in January last, but was not in my service in April
– I never sent her to get these loaves.

Prisoner. I was in great distress, out of a situation, and
would not turn into the street; I took the bread in her name
– I throw myself at your mercy.

Guilty. Aged 18 – Transported for Seven Years.
