My Great Great Grandmother, Elizabeth Bumpstead, found herself in Camden Town in 1830 with one son and four daughters, the eldest of whom was my Great Grandmother Mary, then 14 years old. One year earlier, her elder son William [presumably the family breadwinner] had been sentenced to Transportation to van Dieman’s Land. Whether Elizabeth was simply running short of funds or had it in her mind to join her son on the other side of the world, on 24th February, 1830 she "entered the Black Cap public house in Camden Town, kept by one Edmund Butt. Whilst on the premises”, it was alleged, "she took four pewter pots and hid them in the petticoat beneath her apron.. She left the premises, unobserved by Mr Butt and went on to the Wheat Sheaf public house, kept by James Scull. There she took another pewter pot, which she added to the collection in her petticoat". On 15th April, 1830, Elizabeth Bumpstead was tried at the Old Bailey for Theft - Simple Grand Larceny - 4 pewter pots, value 2s. 6d., the goods of Edward Butt , and 1 pewter pot, value 1s. 6d., the goods of James Scull - and found GUILTY.. Her sentence was – Transportation for Seven Years. And so, she and her children joined William in Hobart Town. **+
