William and John Tess Imprisonment
« on: Monday 28 September 20 12:50 BST (UK) »
Hello
William Tess 1799-1862 was in prison twice.  Both Trials at Maidstone Kent . First for 4 months in 1855 and then tried on 14 March 1859. Given  6 months for stealing and because of previous offence . His son John Tess 1834-1918 was in prison for 2 months --trial 13/3/1859--so perhaps working with father. Criminal record on Ancestry .
 Wonder if there was a newspaper report as would like to learn more about the crime . Grateful for any information.
Thanks
