The information of John Millet of Iron Acton, no occupation given, in case concerning theft of clothes from a washing line, heard by Justice Thomas Liston on 12 December 1761
Summary of statement: John Millet says that last night at about 7 o’clock he came home from Bristol to his house in Iron Acton when his wife told him that she had lost from the line in the entry to his house two shirts, one shift and a cap which were hanging out to dry. She considered them to have been stolen. John Millet immediately made a search at several public houses in the neighbourhood and, in the Rose & Crown in Rangeworthy he met William Hall (a stranger) who he charged with stealing the items and John Millet found two shirts and one cap upon him
