Elizabeth Bahone: England Gaol

Elizabeth Bahone was born about 1815 and had a son named John. She used the last names of Garrethy and Tracey as alias'.







These records are from: UK, Licences of Parole for Female Convicts, 1853-1871, 1883-1887 (On Ancestry).

Her 1860 Prison Record from the above incident.



She also had 1 other previous conviction.

There are convictions listed in her parole records:

1858 was stealing from a person at Darby received 1 year.
1865 Vagrancey at Darby received 14 days
1856 Vagrancey at Wakefield 


This was the last record I found for her, I assume she must of died, when is unknown. I tried searching all the last names for her and found very little, without knowing for sure what her maiden was it's hard to track her and I never found a husband or son.


These early records are a gem to find for your naughty ancestor. Maybe someday someone will find her tree I made on Ancestor and they may night shed new light on Elizabeth's life.
