Details:At Warwick assizes, Joseph Jarvis was tried on an indictment for having in his possesion a counterfeit and forged Bank of England note for 1pound. To this indictment he pleaded guilty; as did John Millwood, for a similar offence. There were indictments against them for forging and uttering the same, which indictments the Bank of England did not prosecute. Sir O. Rooke observed, that on account of their youth (both being lads) the Bank had shewn them mercy, conceiving they were the tools of others. They were sentenced to be transported for 14 years. ( Jarvis was sent to the Hulks however received a free pardon on 4 August 1805)
