RE: THOMAS ROSE

Thank you for your request for research on the above. I enclose print-outs from our microfilm copies of The Shrewsbury Chronicle for 22"d. and 291h. March 1793 concerning the trial of Thomas Rose. I am afraid that at that date the newspaper only recorded the bare details unless the case was very sensational.

Although the trial took place at the Assizes whose records are held at the Public Record Office at Kew (from where I presume you obtained the extract) we do have amongst our Quarter Sessions records, calendars of prisoners held in the County Gaol, including those awaiting trial or transportation as well as those imprisoned. I enclose, on a separate sheet details from these calendars. Later, details of the place of birth of the prisoners were sometimes given but unfortunately not for this period. I have searched the baptism registers of Newport and the adjoining parish of Edgmond for the period 1770-76 but have not been able to find the baptism of Thomas Rose. I have also looked at the I.G.I. for Shropshire which has very good coverage of baptisms for the period but without success. The baptisms you have found at Great Yarmouth seem promising. The letter was very interesting but suggests a very wealthy family. 250 pounds was a very large sum at that date and 5000 pounds a fortune.

I am sorry that we have not been able to be of more help.

Yours sincerely, A Healy Research Service
