What was her crime?
« on: Monday 09 April 12 08:24 BST (UK) »
Need help to read the crime for which Patience Langtree was imprisoned. She was sentenced to 9 months on 3rd April 1843 in Somerset and was 21 years of age.
All help appreciated.
Josie.

Thanks all.
Suppose today it would be child neglect.

Although it was after 1843 this is what the Offences Against the Person Act 1861 states;
Exposing Children whereby Life endangered.
27  Whosoever shall unlawfully abandon or expose any Child, being under the Age of Two Years, whereby the Life of such Child shall be endangered, or the Health of such Child shall have been or shall be likely to be permanently injured, shall be guilty of a Misdemeanor, and being convicted thereof shall be liable, at the Discretion of the Court, to be kept in Penal Servitude for the Term of Three Years, or to be imprisoned for any Term not exceeding Two Years, with or without Hard Labour.
