Hi
Birmingham Central Library have newspapers on line. You just need your library card to access them. The Times goes up to about 1985 but the area covering Birmingham is only up to about 1900? You would have to go to the library I think to see later years.

Hi lyn had a look on this for you and found a marr for these Joseph Holyoak and Mary Ann Bidgood it was Mar Qaut 1860 in Bridgewater, so in all probability the Children showing on 1861 Census would have had a different birth name. There is also listed on Ancestry for Mary Ann Holyoak at Somerset Asises 2 terms of Imprisonment, in 1863 and also 1867. she was in prison on the 1871 Census in Surrey. I have only got a basic Ancestry sub so perhaps someone can check these Prison terms for you. Alan.

Hi Lynn, I have found Mary Ann Holyoak convicted at Wells, Somerset on Larceny Simple, before conviction of felony. Felony is 3 and Laceny penal service 7yrs. I am trying to download it for you but I am struggling. Carol

It's ok Lyn. I have emailed you with it. Can't understand why it is too large as I have attached newspaper clippings before?

Here's the wording for those eager to see:)

Somerset Spring Session
Mary Ann Holyoak, 29, labourer, was indicted for stealing ten yards of cloth, value £5, the property of Charles Orledge, draper, of the Market Place, Shepton Mallet. The prisoner was found guilty as several former convictions were admitted by her she was sentenced to seven years' penal servitude.
