Thanks Kite. Found the record of my ex's gt gt grandfather being acquitted of theft in 1844, following evidence of his father and his father-in-law to be. Unfortunately in 1870 he was found guilty of receiving stolen wearing apparel, stolen from Shepherds Bush & spent 5 years in Parkhurst Prison in the Isle of Wight!
