A gentleman named Lock, appeared to prefer a charge against a poor orphan, apprenticed to him from the Queen’s Orphan School, with sundry trifling misdemeanours, such as not shutting the door after her, and other things equally grave, for which the poor girl was committed to the house of correction for seven days!
Colonial Times 5 October 1841 p.3
Catharine Keef, an apprentice from the Orphan School to Mr. Stewart, charged with misconduct; she having been recently transferred from the service of a Mr. Lock to the complainant, by whom she has been twice brought before the Magistrate for the same offences, was now sentenced to the house of correction for one month, but promising amendment of conduct, the sentence was remitted.
