Hi all. I have found a reference to a person through Archives as being a " prisoner of Debt" in His Majesty's prison. Does anyone know if it is possible to obtain this person's prisoners records. They refer to the late 1860's.
Also, his occupation was given as a lighterman - does anyone know what this is? ( I have an idea but would like to know for sure ) Cheers, Margaret
