GEORGE THOMAS CURL sworn.
I live with my aunt, I left all the things in the indictment at the corner of Norris-street, Hay market, on the 21st of April, on Thursday, about a quarter past eleven o'clock; I recovered them in about an hour after, in Great Earl-street, the prisoner had hold of the basket; I asked who it belonged to; and the prisoner said to him; it was standing in the street; I told him it belonged to me, I lost it in such a place; he said it belonged to his master, Mr. Paine, Piccadilly, he wanted me to go to Mr. Paine's with him; he took up the basket, I laid hold of it, and said he should not go till I got a constable; I sent for one, but could not get one. He again took up the basket, and I went to lay hold of it, and he knocked me down, I fell against the other witness's knees, Thomas Roberts , who came up, and we secured him I took the bread and the basket to the Justice's with the prisoner, view a gif image of the original file
See original and they said, I might keep the basket, the bread would be of no use.
(The basket produced and deposed to by knowing it by sight a year and a half, ever since he lived with his aunt.)
Court. Does any body else carry bread, besides yourself, in this basket? - Yes, the man servant does.
Was there the same quantity of bread in it when you found the basket as when you lost it? - All, except a penny brick; I am sure it was the same bread and basket.
THOMAS ROBERTS sworn.
About a quarter after twelve I was coming from Great Earl-street, and I saw the prisoner at the bar and this boy having a scuffle about this basket of bread; I said nothing at all, nor interfered till the prisoner knocked the boy down; he gave him a blow on his forehead, and I catched him as he was falling; then he asked him if he would give him his basket, and go away quietly; I advised him so to do, but he would not; he said he lived with Mr. Paine, and he would take me along with him, if I would go with him; afterwards he made some objection, and said he would go to Litchfield-street; I took him there, the magistrate told the lad to take the basket home, and put a mark upon it, that he might know it again.
Court to Curl. Did you mark the basket? - The officer that went home with me put six notches on it, just by the handle.
I was going along, and out of place, and I met a baker, and asked him, if he could inform me where I could get work; he said he would, if I would go along with him; we went into a public-house, and had some beer and gin, and coming along afterwards, he asked me to carry his basket for him.
The prisoner called one witness to his character.

Sarah was baptised 1772 in England.
At age 18 Sarah was arrested for stealing from Mary Smith's shop 14 yards of lace 3-13-6, 18 yards of lace edging 1-0-0, 3 yards of muslin 7/-, 4 pairs stockings 7/-, 4 linen handkerchiefs 4/-, 1 printed shawl 8/-, 9 yards Irish linen cloth 16/6 and 1 muslin apron 6/-. She appeared at Hartfordshire Assizes on 3 March 1790, found guilty and sentenced to death by hanging. Since they needed women in the penal colony NSW she along with others had her sentence commuted to 'transportation beyond the seas" for the term of her natural life.
12 months later she left Plymouth aboard "Mary Anne" 300 tons in the "third fleet" on 16-2-1791 (11 ships and 200 convicts). They arrived Sydney Cove 9th. July 1791. After 3 years she married Thomas Hoskisson at St. Phillips Church Sydney by Rev. Richard Johnson the first Chaplin of the colony. Thomas could read and write and we think he changed his name from Hodgkis who was sentenced at Maidstone Kent and transported for 7 years. He was aboard "William Ann" part of the third fleet. They lived together for some time before being married. They farmed along the Hawkesbury river at Green Hills (Windsor) and had 3 children. Sarah was pardoned 27-7-1798 by Governor Hunter after recommendations from Rev. Richard Johnston. In August 1799 Thomas and a friend were murdered by aboriginals whilst hunting in the lower Blue Mountains. These aboriginals were seen later carrying the blankets and firearms stolen. Two were caught and killed by other settlers who were charged with murder but local judges could not decide their fate and later they were freed from bail by English decision.
Sarah recieved compensation from Governor Hunter in the form of a land grant of 60 acres at Petersham Hill.
In 1880 she was pregnant to John EMBRY and gave birth to a girl Child.
Four years later she was married to Thomas Upton at Windsor by Samuel Marden the second Chaplin to the colony. They took up farming at McHillar on a gift deed of 25 acres on the Hawkesbury River.

The children of Thomas Cubitt born 1578 have been traced down to the present day by a GRU researcher that showed me there is no CUPITT connection as shown by the other GRU researcher.
Ann Agnes HOLMAN born about 1814 St. Pancras London UK was the daughter of William Holman and Mary Ann Boxley.
Ann married John CANN, a baker on 28 Jul 1842 Old Church St. Pancras London England UK.
John and Ann had three children in London and another two in Australia after they all emmigrated.
John Kennedy CANN born 14 Aug 1843 London.
William Henry Walter CANN born 13 Aug 1845 London.
Jane Mary CANN born 22 Nov 1847 London.
The family arrived at Adelaide South Australia where Ann gave birth to Anne Adelaide CANN born 03 Sep 1850.They then all headed off to the Victorian Gold Fields and their daughter Mary Charlotte CANN was born 11 Mar 1854 at Richmond.
They then set off for the Blackwood Gold Fields, arriving in 1856. John operated the Staff Of Life bakery at Kangaroo Flat Blackwood and by 1859 was the proprietor of Kangaroo Inn at Mount Blackwood. In 1861 he was the hotel keeper of Southern Cross Hotel which he then purchased in 1862. He died 18th April 1883.
Ann Agnes HOLMAN lived for some additional years and ended up Muttaburra Qld Australia. (The home of the dinosaurs.) This mystery has yet to be uncovered. She died 23 Jul 1895 and was buried in Muttaburra cemetery with a headstone "Annie Agnes CANN" aged 81 years site 12.
Johns eldest son John Kennedy CANN was an excellent blacksmith and coachman establishing a mail coach service. On the 26th of March 1869 he married Rebecca Olivia May PERRY at St Stephens Church Richmond.
John K. CANN, as well as the coach service was also now running the Royal Mail hotel in Golden point, but in 1877 he took over the running of his father's hotel in Blackwood.
John K. CANN and Mary had seven children, and a Victorian dynasty was established.
Edward HOLMAN born about 1760 in Stoke Albany of county Northampton England UK.
He married Elizabeth OGDEN born about 1760 in Belton of county Rutland England UK.
Banns were read at Stoke Albany Northampton by the curator Mr. Clarke on three consecutive Sundays 10th, 14th and 24th October 1779.
They had at least one child :
William HOLMAN christened 21st September 1781 at Stoke Albany Northumberland. He died in September 1847 in West London.
He married Mary Ann BOXLEY daughter of Thomas BOXLEY and Jane ?.
Mary was christened 29th October 1781 at St. Anne of Soho Westminster London UK.
They were married in 1808 at St. Giles in the field Cripplegate England.
This journal links with another for William Holman.
George Boxley HOLMAN was born 04 Jun 1811 London England UK. He was Christened 23-7-1811 Old Church St. Pancras London UK.
He married Sarah YOUNG 05 Mar 1837 at St. Marys Steps Exeter Devon UK. She was born about 1818 at Marlow Devonshire UK. George worked as a Carpenter for all of his life.
They had three children :
Ann Agnes HOLMAN born 1838 Devonshire UK.
George HOLMAN 1842
Alfred James HOLMAN Camden Middlesea England.
It is interesting to follow the Census records that showed how they moved around the London area for work.
1841 census HO 107/685-16 page 11 has George aged 30, a carpenter living at Chapel Street St Pancras Marylebone London and his wife Sarah aged 20 and daughter Ann 18 month old.
1851 sensus HO 107\1496 page 926-2 has George living at number 3 Union Street St Pancras Marylebone London aged 39 with wife Sarah aged 32 with daughter Ann aged 11, son George aged 7 and son Alfred aged 2. Also in the house were 70 year old carpenter George Smale a carpenter and his wife Elizabeth aged 68.
1861 census RG 9/132 page 2 has George living at number 4 Southampton Terrace St. Marys Islington Finsbury, aged 49 with his wife Sarah aged 42, son George aged 19 and working as a Shopman at Buttermans, and son Alfred aged 12 working as a Hatter.
Next door at number 3 was a Henry HOLMAN aged 34 a plumber and painter with his wife Lucy A. aged 29 and daughter Emily aged 5. In the house with them was a Muriel Brown aged 65 a bag maker, Narriel Brown (daughter) aged 30 a needlewoman, Emma Brown aged 22 a shoemakers forewoman, Joseph Brown aged 4, Hannah Clarke aged 54 a nurse and domestic, Henry Tristram aged 48 an engineer and surveyor with his wife Jane aged 47 and his son Francis aged 32 a house decorator.
I assume Henry Holman may be a younger brother for George and that they were all together to work at a common site.
1871 census RG 10/213 p 21. Has George aged 59 living at number 5 Bidboro Street St. Pancras Marylebone London. with his wife Sarah aged 52 and son Alfred aged 24 and working as a carpenter with his father.
George died 06 May 1886 Hackney Greater London UK aged 75. At the time of his death he lived at 151 Nevill Road Stoke, Newington.

Can this be true? A GRU researcher has linked William Cupitt 1620 ILKESTON Derbyshire England ( see journal) with the Cubitt name :
Ralph CUBITT born c1490 South Walsham, Norfolk, England. married ??

James CUBITT married Dorothy GRYME born c1525 Southrepps, Norfolk, England UK daughter of Thomas GREEN c1500 and Joan USHER

Edward HOLMAN and Eliza/ OGDEN (OGDAN) had bans read between 10th and 24th October 1779 at Batton Rutland Stoke Albany Northampton England.
Edward and Elizabeth are again noted as parents for the christening of William HOLMAN 21 Sept 1781 Stoke Albany, Northampton, England.
William married Mary Ann BOXLEY ( date & place to be found) born 29 Oct 1786 Saint Anne Soho, Westminster, London, England. Their son George Boxley HOLMAN b. 04 Jun 1811 London England UK shows how the Boxley name was transfered down the generations of the Holman family in Australia.
