Thank you Trevor- that is great! I don't suppose the records show who stood the sureties for him? Just a long shot!

Were the quarter sessions held at shrewsbury please? Or at another location in Shropshire.

Have you thought of obtaining a press report of the trial? The British Library are likely to hold a copy of the relevant newspaper. They will conduct a 20 minute search free of charge, so if you can give the as much detail as you can - where, when and suggest a local publication likely to have a report - it will increase the chances of a successful result in the time available. They will then, for a modest fee, provide you with a copy. Whether it will provide the information you seek is anyone's guess.

I suggest you ask for the copy to be on A3. I unwisely requested A4 with the result that the print was so reduced that I require a magnifying glass to read it! Lesson learned.

Thank you for the advice. I have heard from the shropshire archives who tell me they have the Shropshire chronicle on microfiche and it is a reasonable train journey from Cheshire for a day out! So will see how I get on!  many many thanks
