This Index has been transcribed from the Summary Convictions Registers for Gloucestershire 1853-1879 and relate to people in Gloucester Gaol. The Gloucester Record Office references are: QGc9/1 to QGc9/9.
The database is complete and out of nearly 25,000 entries 3217 have been identified as having links to the Forest of Dean.
The registers contain a large amount of text that has sometimes been difficult to interpret, especially the names of employers and relatives. There are also many instances where a person’s abode and other locations are spelt in a number of different ways compared to the modern equivalent.
