My ancestor Jonas Anderson was Danish & married English Mary Cutmore on 22nd January 1799 in Saint Saviour's church, Dartmouth, Devon, England ....but Ancestry website, where my DNA is, asks me if the record relating to the imprisonment of a Jonas Anderson relates to MY Jonas Anderson there....but I'm not a fully paid up member of Ancestry to be able to look fully at the records to see if it gives more details about this Jonas Anderson imprisoned Plymouth?, certainly in Devon...
Jonas Andersson with 2 s's is a COMMON name in Denmark & Sweden, but in Devon back then?... it could be a different Jonas Andersson?...
I have no other potential criminals in my tree that I know of (so maybe he was framed?... lol or desperate?)...but I can't help wondering if he could be my ancestor....probably not....but I can't help wondering & wanting to know lol...
Ancestry at least tells me :
'Name: Jonas Anderson
Date of Trial: Apr 1823
Trial Year: 1823
Location of Trial: Devon, England
