Does anyone know if mugshots were taken in 1843, I found a court session for Middlesex where William Rawlings born 1806 did six months in Newgate for larceny. He stole a packet of tea!

Thanks Sue

I think it unlikely as early as that - I've seen some from the 1880s, but not from Newgate. I found his record on Findmypast - not sure how big the packet was to contain 35 ounces of tea - seems a strange amount!

Thanks Pat, now I know what you meant about him having a checkered past!
