Shared note
Notes for JEREMIAH SCRIVENS: When Jeremiah was 20 he was accused by his sister Harriet on 15 June 1837 of ' feloniously stealing on the ninth day of June at Lassington a silver watch the property of George Neal, her husband'. Jeremiah was immediately arrested and sent to Gloucester Prison pending his trial. There he was described as having 'dark hair, grey eyes, a roman nose, ruddy complexion, small mouth, long visage' his body was 'spotted' since childhood and he was 5'9 3/4" tall. He also bore a large scar on his right wrist and a dislocated toe on his right foot ! At Trinity Sessions on 27 June, the charge was heard and the local newspaper, the Gloucester Journal of 07 July 1837, reported the story: "Jeremiah Scrivens, aged 20 was charged with stealing at Lassington, on 9th June, a watch, the property of George Neal. The case against the prisoner was to this effect: The watch was seen by a witness (prisoner's sister) hanging against the head of the bed on the morning of 9th: she went into the garden, and the prisoner entered the house; on her return in about a quarter of an hour the watch was gone. In consequence of suspicions against the prisoner, he was taken into custody about a week afterwards, when he stated that he had not then got the watch, but that Brisol George had had it from him. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty. The Chairman desired them to reconsider the verdict, and again read over the evidence, they however perisisted in their original verdict of not guilty" Jeremiah obviously learned little from his narrow escape and his fascination with watches got the better of him yet again - but this time with far more serious consequences. He was sentenced in October 1837 for stealing again and this time transported to Van Diemans Land on the ship Ganymede..
