    Default Larceny in Oxfordshire

    I have some sketchy details of a George POTTER aged 15 imprisoned for larceny on 1 Jul 1837 in Oxfordshire.
    How can I find out more information? How long was he in prison? Could he have been transported ?

    From Jackson's Oxford Journal, Saturday 8 July 1837 (under the heading 'BANBURY, July 6'):

    'The General Quarter Sessions of the Peace for the Borough of Banbury were held at the Town Hall on Saturday last . . . when the following prisoners took their trials:--

    [some other cases omitted here]

    'George Potter pleaded guilty to an indictment for stealing copper straps and rivets, the property of
    Mr. R. Edmunds. Sentence -- Three months' imprisonment in Oxford Castle.'
