Winchester Assizes Summer of 1813
« on: Tuesday 27 October 20 15:39 GMT (UK) »
Does anyone know whether the trial information is available for the Winchester Assizes for summer of 1813? I'm trying to find additional information about Ann Doswell who was sentenced at that trial. I have all the Hampshire Chronicle articles but they are skimpy. I'm hoping to find additional information about Ann such as age, parents, etc. She was sentenced to six months imprisonment at Bridewell. The coroner's inquest was in March 1813 - would there be records anywhere for the coroner's inquest? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks

Assize records are at The National Archives

https://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/help-with-your-research/research-guides/criminal-trials-assize-courts-1559-1971/

May take a bit of digging around, but probably start with ASSI 25/10/5

Gales 19th Century Collection has an item "Calendar of the Prisoners for the Summer Assizes Holden at the Castle of Winchester on Tuesday, July 27th 1813". (Source Library - National Archives, Kew)

It doesn't add to what you know other than providing age of prisoner - "Ann Doswell, 24"

Thanks hanes teulu - That is a crucial piece of information for my search. It looks like this Ann Doswell was not my three times great-grandmother! My Ann would have been only sixteen in 1813.
