Times Jul 30 1819

Chelmsford Assizes

Maria Peacock, a girl of about 20 years of age, was capitally convicted of a burglary in the dwelling-house of John Waterman, in the parish of Hatfield Broad Oak, on the 16th May, in the day-time, no person being therein.

This being the second time the prisoner was convicted of the like offence, the learned judge, in passing sentence of death, held out but small hopes of mercy.
