Some Selected Reports from the Salisbury and Winchester Journal

Monday, November 30th, 1812


FRAUDULENT MARRIAGE:- Whilst our laws severely punish private thefts, where little comparative injury is sustained, it is to be lamented that the infamous bigamist, who, by daringly violating the sacred institution of marriage, plunders a woman of her whole property, and at the same time reduces her to the lowest slate in society, too often escapes with a punishment very inadequate to his villainy. It is also much to be lamented that any female, possessed of property, will rely on the statements of a stranger, instead of availing herself of the experience of her best friends; by which fatal error they become victims of these men, and of their own perverse credulity. A case came on Saturday before the Magistrates of Bow-street, which fully proves the truth of these observations:- About a year ago a smart looking fellow, who called himself Charles Henry, and passed for a surgeon, formed an acquaintance with Miss Catherine Wyatt, a daughter of Charles Wyatt, Esq. of Ealing, now Member of Parliament for Sudbury. The young Lady has a fortune of 10,000 independent of her father. She was weak enough to suffer this acquaintance to grow into a close intimacy, and to meet the man privately, without any other knowledge of him than he assured her he was heir to a large estate in Ireland, his native country. At length she eloped from her father's house, and was married to Henry at Christ Church, Surry, by banns, of which Mr. Wyatt had no knowledge, and therefore could not forbid the marriage. Considering his misfortune irremediable, he acquiesced to it, and advanced money for the honourable support of his daughter and her husband; but on enquiring after Henry's connections in Ireland, he learnt that he had absconded from Sligo, and deserted a young woman to whom he was there married; in consequence of which he was taken into custody. On his examination at Bow-street, Mrs. Shaw, sister of the prisoners first wife stated that she was present at his marriage with her sister Miss Robinson, at Sligo, on the 5th of February 1808. The ceremony was performed after the manner of the Church of Rome, the parties being Roman Catholics, in a private room, by license of the Bishop of the Diocese, and the prisoner then called himself Thomas Henry, though he had married Miss Wyatt by the name of Charles Henry. Mr. Graham asked the prisoner if he had any thing to say in his defence: he said he wished for another examination, that he might have assistance of Counsel : Mr. Graham said, that the assistance would be of no avail, as the charge against him was positive. The prisoner asserted that Charles Henry was his real name, but afterwards owned that he had dropped the name Thomas and taken that of Charles about three years ago, which was evidently for the purpose of concealment. He said, "he thought nothing of his marriage in Ireland, as he was not really a Roman Catholic." On this impudent declaration, Mr. Graham immediately committed him for trial at the next Assizes for the county of Surry.


DARING ROBBERY.- On Tuesday evening, the 17th inst. as Mrs. Irving, landlady of the Bell and Crown Inn, Taplow, was crossing her garden, about eleven o'clock, she was struck violently on the back part of her neck, by a tall stout man; she fell into the fellow's arms, who seized her hand, and drew off her rings; attempting to cry out, she received a second blow from another man, which struck her against a tree, she fell on the ground, at which time she supposes her pockets were cut off, containing 93 in notes, 6 in silver, tied up in a canvas bag, and about 30s and some halfpence, loose; a bodkin and tooth-pick case marked 'I. I.' and the mourning ring of her lately deceased husband. She was taken up quite insensible, being found by her servant, who was directed by her groans, about twenty minutes after she had left her house. Mrs. Irving had been paying some money to Mr. Clare, cyder merchant, in the course of the evening, and it is supposed the robbers must have observed her fold her bag with the property stolen, and then secreted themselves in the garden, prepared for plunder.

EXECUTION of LIEUT. GAMAGE.- On Monday morning, at eight o'clock, a signal gun was fired from his Majesty's ship Griffon, in the Downs, and the yellow flag hoisted to the fore-top-gallant-head, as preparatory to punishment. At nine, the signal was made for two boats from each of the men at war to range in a line parallel to the Griffon, to witness the execution. After the boats had got into their station, the shrouds of the ships at anchor were manned, and at ten o'clock the fatal gun was fired, and the unhappy man was immediately hoisted up the foreyard-arm, where he remained suspended for three quarters of an hour, when his body was lowered down and delivered to his friends, to be interred in the burying-ground of the Naval Hospital at Deal. The unfortunate Officer, since his condemnation, does not appear to have entertained the most distant idea of receiving a pardon, but has constantly been brooding over his expected fate; and so much had he anticipated his fatal exit, that he, in a great measure, refused the sustenance necessary to keep him alive. Indeed it is thought, had the execution of his sentence been much longer delayed, exhausted nature would have put a period to his sufferings.


Two men, named Brown and Jameson, were brought up to receive judgement, being convicted at the last assizes for the county of Lancaster for buying and selling guineas for more than their current value, and they were severally sentenced to six months imprisonment in the Castle of Lancaster.
John Hornbrook[?], convicted at the last assizes for the county of Devon of writing a libellous letter to a Mr. Carpenter, a Magistrate in that county, was sentenced to be imprisoned six weeks in the same prison.
Peter Wheeler and William Smith, alias Andrew Wilson, who were found guilty of a conspiracy to defraud Mr. Gibson, one of their copartners in trade, were both sentenced to be imprisoned eighteen months in Newgate, and within the first month of that imprisonment to stand upon the pillory, at the Royal Exchange.
John Agg, the Proprietor and Editor of a periodical publication called Town Talk, who was convicted at the late assizes for Surry, of having published a libel on Captain and Lady Emily Best, was also brought up for judgement, and sentenced to pay a fine of 50 to the King, to be imprisoned nine months in Newgate, and to enter into recognizance for his good behaviour for three years.
MOST MELANCHOLY CATASTROPHE. - On Tuesday morning last, Sophia Edwards and Mary Nest, two female servants of the Rev. John Gibbons, of Brasted, Kent (one aged 22, the other 19 years), were found drowned in a pond in the garden, belonging to the Parsonage House at that place; and the same day an inquest was taken on their bodies, by R. Crow, Esq. Coroner, when the following circumstances were disclosed :- Mr.and Mrs.Gibbons had been from home several weeks, leaving their house to the care of these females, who, during the absence of their master and mistress, had the misfortune to break some articles of furniture, and to spoil four dozen of knives and forks.- Upon the return of Mr. and Mrs. Gibbons (on Saturday, the 14th), the servants were severely reprimanded for what had happened, and one of them received notice to leave her place. They both appeared to be very uncomfortable during Sunday and Monday, and on the latter day, the footman heard them in conversation respecting Martha Viner, a late servant in the same family, who had drowned herself in the pond in the garden; and observing one to the other, that she had done so through trouble. - The elder then said to the younger - "We will have a swim tonight, Mary !" the other replied - "So we will, girl." - The footman thought they were jesting, and said - "Aye and I will swim with you." Sophia Edwards replied - "No, you shan't, but I will haunt you." After this conversation, they continued about their work as usual, and at six o'clock asked the footman to get tea for them; while he was in the pantry for that purpose he heard the kitchen door shut, and on his return into the kitchen they were both gone. The footman afterwards thought he heard them up stairs, and therefore took no notice of their absence, until eight o'clock, when he told his master and mistress. Search was made for them about the house, garden, and neighbourhood, during the whole night; and early on Tuesday morning the same pond was dragged, which had so recently been the watery grave of Martha Viner, when, shocking to relate, both their bodies were found in it, lying close to each other. - The Jury returned a verdict of - Lunacy.

SUICIDE - The body of Mr. Pomroy was yesterday taken out of the river Thames, into which he had thrown himself from Blackfriars-bridge. He was a partner in the iron-foundery, in Bear-lane, Black-friars. Some recent disappointments in trade are supposed to be the cause of this fatal event.

EXECUTION.- On Friday se'nnight, Robert Ferguson was executed at Inverness, in pursuance of his sentence, for the murder of Capt. C. Munro, late of the 42d regiment of foot. So uncommon a spectacle in that part of the country attracted a great concourse of spectators, whom the criminal addressed in the Gaelic language, acknowledging the justice of his sentence, and attributing his depravity to the ignorance in which he was educated, and his consequent early neglect of all moral and religious duties. He have the signal for his being turned off, and behaved to the last with great fortitude. When cut down his body was given to the surgeons for dissection.

FALMOUTH, Nov. 26. The Duke of Montrose packet from Corunna, in five days, arrived yesterday. She brings no news. She was detained some time for a Courier from the army, who had not arrived. The Duke of Kent packet, from this port, had not arrived at Corunna some hours before the Montrose sailed.
The Sandwich packet, from the West Indies, arrived on Monday last.
The Marlborough packet is hourly expected from Lisbon.
No accounts having been received of the Swallow packet, from Jamaica and the Leeward Islands, which became due on the 3d inst. it is feared she has foundered at sea, or been taken by the enemy.

PLYMOUTH, Nov.27. We are assured that ten sail of the line, fifteen frigates, and twenty, large gun-brigs, are to be fitted for the American station directly, Le Rhin , of 44 guns, now in the Sound, is one of the frigates. The Admiralty have adopted a very wise regulation in increasing the crews of the 44 gun frigates with forty additional hands, the 32 gun frigates with thirty additional hands, and gun-brigs in proportion, to meet, on equal terms, the large American frigates.
Several transports, with cavalry, from Portsmouth, bound to the Peninsula, to reinforce Lord Wellington, put in here on Monday. The men are in high spirits, and the horses in excellent condition.
On Tuesday arrived the Armide, of 44 guns from off Quiberon, having landed the French Officer whom we formerly mentioned to have gone on board the Armide for that purpose; but who he is, or what may be the object of his adventure, we are wholly at a loss to tell.
On Wednesday came in the Mary, Wood, Hope, Drake, and the Daphne, Harris, all from Newfoundland: they sailed 28 days since, in company 24 sail, under convoy of the Isis, of 50 guns; 15 of them parted a few days since in bad weather, the remainder are gone up Channel with the Isis, and passed the Sound last evening.
On Thursday came in a vessel from Bourdeaux, having on board 24 Englishmen who were put on board her at sea by a French privateer of 18 guns and 150 men: they composed the crews of the Mary, Cray, from Honduras, for London, the Endeavour, of Jersey, Le Fevre, and another vessel, both from Newfoundland, which were captured by the same privateer last Monday. The Mary sailed from Honduras, with 11 other vessels, under convoy of the Frolic, of 18 guns, Capt. Winyeates; soon after, six of the convoy parted company; and on the 18th of October, the Frolic, with five of the fleet, fell in with an American frigate, on which a signal was made for the ships to disperse, and the Frolic gallantly fought the American in close action one hour and a half, when she became dismasted and unmanageable, and then struck; the frigate's main and mizen topmasts were shot away during the action, and, from the well-directed fire from the Frolic, it is supposed that her loss in killed and wounded was very great: the Frolic had lost her topmasts before the action, and was under jury-masts: Captain Winyeates was made into the Frolic in the West Indies, and it appears has done great credit to his promotion.
Came in the Philemon, Paul, from Bourdeaux, detained by the Wizard sloop of war.
The privateer that captured the Mary and other vessels sails remarkably fast, and has been chaced by the Rota frigate, but she could not get up with her.

PORTSMOUTH, Nov. 28. Several ships of the West-India fleet, which sailed from hence on Friday the 20th inst. under convoy of the Victorious and Coquette, have put back, in consequence of their having lost sight of the convoy on the following day. The Master of one of these ships reports, that on Saturday morning he could perceive only 20 sail of the convoy (which consisted of 50 sail), and on Sunday morning only four vessels were in sight. He looked out in vain for the Commodore; and as it continued to blow a heavy gale from the eastward, he thought it prudent to put back.
