Jane Foster CUMPSTONE born c. 1825

Today I found an unusual record for (1/2/2) Jane Foster  CUMPSTONE age 14 b. c 1825  who appeared before the Lyndsey Sessions in Lincolnshire at Kirton on 5th July 1839 charged with larceny.  It described her  ‘ degree of instruction’ as  ‘Imp’

She was acquitted  ‘no bill’ (Source Citation: Class: HO 27; Piece: 58; Page: 235)

Jane died a spinster in January Q 1874 at Hull in the East Riding of Yorkshire.  She appears in my book ‘The Cumpstons of Hull, Master Mariners and their families’ on page 38, the grand-daughter of William Cumpston and Millisint Watson. 

She was the daughter of William George Cumpston and Jane Lidgett.  Her brother George Lidgett Cumpston emigrated to Australia in 1852.   http://www.cumpston.org.uk/#/australia-trees-census/4535704801
