Perth County Prison, 1851


This is a small page of 'spare' records found whilst looking for Kennedys in the 1851 census. The following were present in the Perth County Prison on the night of March 31st 1851. It is just the one page that contained the Kennedy so I can't provide any further information, if the person you are looking for isn't listed they could still have been in this prison but listed on another page of the census. The page reference I have transcribed below is 387/00 047/00 002.
