Oldbaileyonline newspaper
« on: Friday 21 October 16 07:33 BST (UK) »
Hi Everyone

I was wondering if someone may be able to help me out.

I have found two entries on Ancestry for the following. One as a victim and the other as a witness, all other details are exact. When I click on the information, I can't  access the news clipping. Does anyone have access to the OldBaileys please.

I have a James Burgh Long with a court date
10 Jun 1850 in London, England
Role:    victim
Collection:    Proceedings of the Old Bailey
ID:    t18500610-name-797
Reference Number:    t18500610-1183

regards

The Proceedings of the Old Bailey does not refer to a newspaper :-\

It refers to court documents! The Old Bailey is the Central Criminal Court of England.
The session papers are available here:

(click on Search Pages)

Briefly, it's one court case:
1183. JAMES CAMPBELL, SYDNEY ROBERT SPARKS, CHARLES STANLEY , and EDWARD WRIGHT, junior, unlawfully obtaining money by means of false pretences, 5l. from James Burgh Long.
Garrad (Suffolk, Essex, Somerset), Crocker (Somerset), Vanstone (Devon, Jersey), Sims (Wiltshire), Bridger (Kent)
