Information submitted by Malcolm Coeshaw

I had such a surprise to find details on your site of my wife's great grandfather, Samuel Curtis, punished for stealing 26 hen's eggs in July 1870. Could I possibly ask you if you have any other details concerning Samuel Curtis and explain what type of sentence is "3" as stated on the offence details. In about 1886 Samuel met a lady, Alice Clover or Glover*, who was around 25 years younger than himself. They had three or perhaps four children together, one of which, Herbert Curtis, was my wife's grandfather. Unfortunately, in 1904 Alice left Samuel for a younger man. A year later Samuel murdered Alice in Wrotham, Kent, and was hung for her murder at Maidstone Prison in December 1905.
