Details: Peter Egan, per Recovery, charged with theft from a fellow prisoner. Nicholas Heally, Acting Overseer of the Prisoners Barracks states - The greater part of the prisoners who arrived last week in the Liverpool Packet were sent up the river yesterday to their respective destinations; one of them before he went away told me he had been robbed in the course of the morning of his bag containing clothes; yesterday about 12 olock I saw Egan going towards the privy with a bag in his hand. I followed him but the place being very dark I did not see anything in his possession after I was inside. I however was certain he had taken a bag there. I therefore directed a Wardsman to keep Guard at the door and not to suffer any person to pass in or out. I went for a constable who returned with me and we went into the Privy accompanied by the wardsman. After some search the wardsman found secreted down different holes a bag and other wearing apparel now produced. The Wardsman at the Barracks states - I was directed by the overseer not to let any person pass into the Privy yesterday whilst he was absent. I obeyed his orders - when he returned with a constable we searched the Privy and found the articles now before the court. Charles Merriott a constable states - I was called on yesterday by the overseer of the prisoners Barracks to search the privy for some stolen articles. I went and found a wardsman keeping the door. We all went in and after a while the wardman with the benefit of a light found the articles before the court. The prisoner in his defence states - I did not take any bag into the privy, it was a shirt which I had borrowed from Davis. Robert Davis states - I lent Egan a shirt to wear yesterday afternoon whilst he washed his own. It was about four oclock I let him have it. Peter Egan sentenced to 50 lashes and hard labour in the gaol gang for six months

Details: Peter Egan per ship Recovery and John Coakley both in government service charged with endeavouring to sell a government bed tick and blanket which had been purloined from James Bull assigned servant of Captain John Pike. .....William Cooper states - Yesterday Egan came to me and offered a bed tick for sale; it had the Kings mark on it and I therefore declined the bargain; to the best of my opinion the bed now before the court is that which was offered to me. Chief Constable George Muir states - when the government servants who arrived in the Liverpool Packet on Sunday last landed, I took the numbers of their bedding. The bed tick No. 56 belonged to James Bull who came by the vessel. I was told yesterday by the overseer of the prisoner s barracks, that Coakley had just come down the river bringing a bed with him which he believed to have been stolen. I went and took possession of it. It consisted of a bed No. 56 and a blanket, the corner of the blanket where I suppose the number to have been is cut off. Egan states - I got the bed tick from Coakley and offered it for sale at his request. Coakley states - the late owner of the bed tick and blanket gave them to me up the river in exchange for some tobacco. Sentences: Peter Egan 50 lashes; John Coakley 25 lashes.
