A RETURN OF ALL PERSONS

 The following information has been transcribed from a booklet, owned by the Webmaster, it has been transcribed  by me, verbatim.  I have proof read several times, but as always I would be happy to accept any reasonable requests to re-check my transcribing.  No other information is given, I have 'drained it dry'.

Arrested, Committed, or Detained, in England, on Treasonable Charges, in the Year 1817; distinguishing, such as were committed on charges of High Treason, from those committed on suspicion of High Treason, or for Treasonable Practices; and also distinguishing such as were committed by warrants issued by His Majesty's Secretaries of State, from those committed by Justices of Peace; together with the Names, Additions or Descriptions, of the said Persons, their occupation, ages and placed of abode, respectively, at the times of their being arrested as far as the same are known; - and, a return of the different prisons to which they were first committed, and afterwards removed, and of the Authority or Order by which such of the said Persons as were not brought to Trial, were released from confinement, together with the respective dates of their arrest and release; distinguishing such as were required to enter, and did actually enter, into recognizance's, before Justices of Peace, for their appearance after being released, and such whose recognizance's were afterwards vacated, and the dates of their being so vacated, at the desire or on the motion of His Majesty's Attorney General.
