[Sherratt] Prosecution Brief for Attempted Murder

This is the brief used at the trial of Joseph Sherratt, held at the Staffordshire Assizes in March 1842. Sherratt '... a person of bad character and goes about the country and sleeps in barns......a man of weak intellect (but more rogue than fool) and where offended very revengeful....' was accused of breaking into 69 year old Sarah Smith's cottage at Pool End, Leek Frith, and beating her about the head and body. It seems pretty evident from all the evidence from the various witnesses that Sherratt 'done it' - indeed a note on the front of the brief says 'pleaded guilty' Wonder what became of him? Manuscript on 6 large paper sheets with a 7th as the covering sheet. (ref S396)
