Prison Register Lookup Request - 1858
« on: Monday 10 August 20 06:36 BST (UK) »
A Wexford newspaper report in February 1858 has an Edward Roche sentenced to 3 years hard labor for larceny.
There is
- No address
- No age
- No description of what he was accused of stealing, or where.

I wonder if someone with access to the prison registers can provide any of these details?

I know from the fact that he was later sentenced to transportation for a repeat offense that he is not one of "mine", but it would be useful to know where this fellow was from!

Thanks
