Mary Gibbons 1812 48 years old


Loyal Member
I am looking for an account of court proceedings for a Mary Gibbon who was part of a riot in Sheffield. Newspaper reports I have seen briefly (Leeds Mercury) imply that riot was led by a number of men who were from the Workhouse. However an intelligence letter sent implied she was the leader. I know she was found guilty of rioting and stealing breeches and was sentenced to 12 months hard labour. I'd like to find out more about her, whether she had family an occupation and where she lived. anyone have any more detail about her?
