INFO WITNESS IN COURT CASE. Reported in the newspaper, Whitstaple Times and Herne Bay Herald, Sat., 2 Nov 1872. " HYTHE. The Borough Quarter Sessions were held on Monday last. . .. Maria Austen, single woman, was indicted for stealing a black silk dress, three white petticoats, six white bodies, a night gown, and other articles, together of the value of £8, the property of Roger Rainey, a widower and a gunner in the Coast Brigade Royal Artillery, stationed at Fort Moncreiff, on 28th July, 1872. --Mr. Croft prosecuted, and called Roger Rainey, who said that the prisoner had been living with him as a servant for four or five weeks. She was to mind the children. He made no arrangement to give her any money for her services; she had her food. He had two boxes which he kept locked in his room, containing wearing apparel and other articles. On July 29, he missed the articles. He did not give any of them to the prisoner. --Mary Ann Rainey, a daughter of the previous witness, said that the prisoner lived with them as a servant, and had her meals with them, but went away to sleep. She had never seen her father give the prisoner any clothes, except the dress she was then wearing, and a petticoat and jacket. -Supt John Friend proved to going to the Prince of Wales public house, Dymchurch Road and finding the prisoner there. He charged her with stealing a gold ring and various other articles belonging to Roger Rainey. She said that Rainey had given them to her, and she had witnesses to prove it. He asked her where the ring was, and she took it off her finger and gave it to him. He asked her for the dress and other things. . .. Mrs. Stone, the landlady, went upstairs and brought the things. . . and gave them to the witness. --For the defence, Thomas Kemp Stone, father of the landlord of the Prince of Wales . . . stated that he heard Rainey say that he was going to make the prisoner his wife, and saw him take the ring and put it on prisoner's finger, telling her that the wearing apparel he had got she was welcome to. --Thomas Watson proved seeing Rainey put the ring on the finger of the prisoner, and Rainey called him (witness) as a witness to it. --The jury retired for a short deliberation, and . . . found the prisoner not guilty. --The Recorder said he quite concurred with the verdict, and requested Mr. W.S. Smith (the Clerk of the Peace) to take the necessary proceedings for indicting Rainey for perjury. (BrNewspapFMP.)
