The Times

Tuesday 2 February 1819

The weavers and spinners charged with a combination to raise their wages (taken up during the late turn-outs), and who traversed the indictments against them from the last to the present Sessions, have all been found Guilty, and the majority of them sentenced to two years' imprisonment in Lancaster Castle; the others to one year in the same prison. Among the former are Kay and Pilkington, who were taken into custody during the disturbances at Burnley. Crooks and Gorton, two of those concerned in the attack on Gray's factory, were sentenced to three years' imprisonment each.
