Notes for Mary Bateman

Mary Bateman and Elizabeth Durand, teenage prostitutes, met a tipsy biscuit maker's servant at Wellclose Square, London, on the evening of 19 Apr 1788 and took him back to their lodgings at Long Alley off Cable Street in the East End.

The man admitted at the trial that he had been so drunk that he did not remember exactly what happened or when he left the house. He later missed his watch, valued at 3 pounds, and a constable was sent to the house the next morning. The timepiece was found hidden in the bed of the landlady Elizabeth 'Bet') Sully ¿(also Second Fleet)¿, who was convicted at the same trial for receiving stolen property. Durand gave evidence against Bateman in return for immunity from prosecution. She said they had 'decoyed' the man to Sulley's residence which was a 'house of ill fame'. Mary Butler and Mary Randall had been sentenced to transportation for months previously for an offence committed in similar circumstances at Bet Sully's house. The watch stolen by Bateman was deliberately undervalued at 39 shillings by the court to avoid the imposition of a death sentence. She was sentenced to seven years' transportation. At the time of committal she had signed a statement with a mark X denying her guilt. Age given as 15, she was sent from Newgate Gaol to the ship 'Lady Juliana' on 12 Mar 1789.
