Fowl Stealing. – Maria Bird, wife of John Bird, of Thorpe Morieux, labourer, was charged by Mr. Henry Hunt, of the same place, farmer, with having on the 18th October last, at Thorpe Morieux, unlawfully stolen one fowl, value 2s. 6d., his property.

Mr. James Hunt proved missing some fowls, and he believed the remains of the fowl produced were part of one that was lost.

Eliza Salmon, prosecutor’s servant, stated that defendant was at her master’s house and expressed a wish for some fowls. She afterwards saw her lay her hands on a fowl, and go into a meadow to count some stockings which was an unusual occurrence. She was gone about ten minutes. The head of the fowl and feathers produced were those of a fowl that was in the meadow.

Policeman Barnard stated that from information he received he went to defendant’s house and questioned her. She fetched a pan containing the head and feet of a fowl, and part ofa fowl was being stewed in a saucepan. Defendant stated that a dog had dropped it, and she brought it home. She afterwards said it was a fox.

Defendant wishing the case to be summarily dealt with she was fined £2, including costs.

Six weeks allowed for payment.
