Newgate Prison Register

William Moorby - June 1796.

Can anyone suggest what the notes before his name mean, please?

Thanks, Stan, but it's actually the one three lines above that that is my query - William Moorby.

You can see the 12months referred to in the first part of the sentence. 

William Woods a bit below gets 6 months.

Thank you, again.  I had seen the trial in the Old Bailey some time ago and 'earmarked' it because at the time I could find no connection with the research I was doing.  Recently, however, I found that my 'known' ancestor applied to become a Freeman of the City of London and there named his father as William, a tin plate metal worker.
