Title: Isaac Broadhurst - criminal
Post by: casram on Friday 15 April 11 12:01 BST (UK)
Does anyone know where I can find out more details about the crimes of Isaac Broadhurst. He was sentenced to 4 years penal servitude on 25 March 1863 at Presteigne  for larceny and receiving stolen goods. He had previously been sentenced to 15 m hard labour in March 1859 for receiving stolen goods and 6m hard labour in June 1854 for theft.

I have searched the Gales newspaper site but can find not reference to any of these crimes. 

I assume he was the Isaac Broadhurst born in 1828 in Leominster in Herefordshire and whose sister Sophia was transported in 1845 but it would be nice to confirm this.

Hi Casram, your 2011 post has popped to the top as there has been a recent reply. Are you still looking for information on the origin of Isaac, or have you found out lots since 2011. There is a little bit on FindMyPast re his crimes.
