MARY JOHNSON, BURGLARY, 11 JAN 1712

 

Mary Johnson of St. James Westminster was indicted for stealing a stuff-Gown and Petticoat, and other things, the Goods of Frances Sterry. The Evidence swore, she found her Chamber-door broke open, and her Goods gone; and having some Information concerning the Prisoner, took her, and some of the Goods upon her. The Fact was prov'd very plain, and she having no body to her Reputation, was found guilty of stealing the Goods, but it did not reach to Burglary.

(Probably Frances Sterry, the wife of George Sterry [1658-1736] of the parish of Southwark St Saviour's, Surrey, on the Ruardean, Gloucestershire Sterry line.)
