  • To the Right Honourable Viscount Melbourne, His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Home Department

    The Petition of John and Frances Crudginton on behalf of Daniel Crudginton

    The humble petition of John Crudginton and Frances his wife sheweth that their eldest son Daniel Crudginton was convicted at the Middlesex Sessions on Monday the 7th of April inst before Benjamin Rotch Esq for stealing a pair of shoes in the Parish of Christ Church Middlesex (valued at 2/6) and sentenced to be transported for 7 years.

    Your Petitioners beg to state they with their Witnesses attended at the Sessions House on Monday morning and saw the Prisoner in Clerkenwell Prison at 1 o'clock at which time no bill was found and your Petitioners were informed that he would not be tried that day, your Petitioners and their witnesses went home to dinner and our Prisoners Mother returning in the afternoon to see if a bill was found when to her great surprise and distress she was informed her son was tried and transported by half past 3 o'clock on the same Monday afternoon.

    Your Petitioners (although poor people with a family of 6 children excluding the Prisoner) would have obtained him professional assistance and had many respectable Witnesses to speak to his Character some of whom have known him from his cradle which he lost the benefit of through the cause above stated.

    Permit your Petitioners to sate that the Prisoner is now in his 18th year is by trade a Shoemaker and a good workman and never up to this transaction had a dishonest act laid to his charge but on the contrary he was always industriously inclined and done his utmost to assist his Father in bringing up Petitioners large family as we could have fully proved.

    Your Petitioners under these circumstances fervently hope that your Lordship will be pleased to take this case into your Lordship's most gracious consideration and that by being entirely misled by being informed that he would not be tried on the Monday by his not having the benefit of Counsel being deprived of the evidence of his friends and always borne a good character for honesty and industry he will be an object to which your Lordship will be pleased to extend mercy but if your Lordship cannot grant him a commutation of sentence your Petitioners sincerely pray that your Lordship will be pleased to permit him to remain in the Country that your Petitioners may not have their feelings further wounded by the expatriation of their son

    And your Petitioners
    As in duty bound
    Shall we Pray

    April 1834

    We the undersigned join in the Prayers of the Petitioners can vouch for the truth of the foregoing statements and humbly recommend the youth to the mercy of your Lordship

  • Morning Post  Friday Oct 27 1837 :

    Distressing Circumstance

    On Monday morning last, two children, a boy and a girl, the former two and the other four years of age, strayed from the house of their parent, a poor woman named Crudgington, at No 1, Collingwood terrace, Dog row, Mile-End-Road, and have not since been heard of, the enquiries of the agonised mother who has six other young children, having proved fruitless.

    She is a very poor woman and the circumstance has  caused a good deal of excitement to the district, and much commiseration  for the distressed parent.

    The children have both light hair and fair complexions. The girl answers to the name of Caroline Crudgington. It is to be hoped that if any person has seen two children answering the above description early information will be given to the afflicted mother.
