175094 Canny Ann - 27 April 1831 - HRA Vol.1 XVI
1st. In the Case of Mr. Reid, it appears that a free Woman named Ann Canny threatens to bring an Action against him for false imprisonment, having been Sentenced by Mr. Reid (who was called upon to act at Newcastle during the temporary absence of the regular Magistrate) as a Vagrant, and living in a State of Adultery, for three Months to the 3d Class of the Female Factory, as a house of correction. Roger Therry, Esqr. who, in the absence of an Attorney and Solicitor General, has been employed to defend this Case, States it as his opinion that it is inexpedient to proceed to trial. The Magistrate he Considers has Manifestly exceeded his jurisdiction, as the facts disclosed in the deposition do Not appear Sufficiently Strong to Warrant even a Commitment to a house of Correction. Under these circumstances, he recommends that Amends Should be tendered to this Woman to the extent of 15 or even 20, as, in the event of an Action, she may not only be Awarded damages to that, and even to a large Amount, but also very heavy Costs would be incurred....Extract from Minute No. 20, of the Proceedings of the Executive Council, on the 27th April, 1831.
