Ancestry links Gloucestershire, England, Gaol Registers, 1815-1879

Ancestry identifies them as "Web", a name index with links to, in this case the Gloucestershire Archives Genealogical Search for gaol records from Gloucestershire County Council.

You can click on the link to pay and look at the official record, but, before doing so I suggest searching with the name and year to see if there's a newspaper article on the case at the British Newspaper Archive or Findmypast's newspaper collection.

I tried a search on Reid and found a Michael Reid committed on 8 Aug 1860. The newspaper search found an eight paragraph article in the Gloucester Journal for August 18, 1860
