Mary Welsh

Evidence Type: Newspaper Report
26 August 1826


MARY WELCH, Government servant to Mrs. WYLDE, was brought forward on Tuesday last upon returning home after a month’s seclusion in the Factory, for behaving in a riotous and improper manner, and being highly elevated from drinking. — The forlorn maid was sentenced to another seclusion of two months among the third class of Factory ladies.

THOMAS GROVER, the Government servant of Mrs. WYLDE, being ordered by his mistress to go to the Factory and bring home MARY WELCH, was charged with not only allowing MARY WELCH to get drunk,  but also himself — thus inducing insolence, and riotous behaviour  — sentenced 14 days to the treadmill.
