Yes, it does say 'ragged schools'.  Sounds as though the poor lad had a difficult life.

It reads as though he stole a pair (pr) of blinders and a whip, but I'm wondering if he actually made off with blinkers and a whip.

Not sure of the names of the persons he appeared before.  One  looks rather like Luccock to me, but initials not easy to decipher.

I agree, it seems as though the poor lad was living on the breadline.

Poor little chap was only 13!  I do hope his life picked up after that.  Do you know what happened to him?  I don't know where you could find those records I'm afraid but I am sure someone will be looking at this thread who knows far more than I do, and who will be able to help.
