    CAMBRIDGE CHRONICLE & JOURNAL: Cambridgeshire Assizes Concluded. William Flavell, aged 17, and Thomas Bowers, aged 15, stood charged with stealing ten pigeons from the dove house of Mr William Hall, of Landbeach. Mr Hall, the prosecutor, stated that on Monday the 24th of February last, in consequence of information he received from his servant Hinton, he went to his dovecote. The door was open but did not appear to have been forced. The pigeons were very much disturbed. Hinton found a sack containing eight dead pigeons and two live ones. He went in search of the robbers, and saw two lads in slop-frocks, about the size of the prisoners. On the Thursday following, they sent to prosecutor, who went to a house in the village. Witness produced the sack, and prisoners said that was the sack in which they took the pigeons out of the dovehouse. They confessed the fact to the Rev. Wm. Leworthy, the magistrate, who used no threat or promise. It appears that these two prisoners were encouraged in their depredations by two men in the neighbourhood, of the names of Taylor and Sanderson, who bought pigeons obtained in this manner at a penny a piece. The prisoners were found guilty, and sentenced to six months imprisonment.
