Abstract:

"The great case of the six Dorchester labourers, George Loveless, James Loveless (his brother), Thomas Standfield, John Standfield (his son), James Hammett and Joseph Brine, who in 1834 were sentenced to seven years transportation to Australia for administering unlawful oaths, is only partly rescued from the comparative obscurity to which legal historians had long consigned it. The case was omitted from an adequate report, even in the New Series of the State Trials, which were devised in 1875 to fill the gap left from the year 1820, at which Howell's reports ceased." -- page 1.
