This man was employed as the jailor in the Old Bailey, guarding many prisoners in the cells below the courtroom. He participated in the trial of Joshamee Gibbs, who was mistaken for Jack Sparrow, that took place at the Old Bailey in London.
By 1750, this man was employed as the jailor in the Old Bailey with the duty to guard prisoners in the cells below the courtroom. He once led prisoner Joshamee Gibbs, who was mistaken as Captain Jack Sparrow, out of his cell and into the trial in the courtroom. At one point in the trail, after Gibbs spoke after recognizing the mysterious Justice Smith, Jack Sparrow himself in disguise, the jailor whacked him for speaking out of turn. After prisoner Gibbs was found guilty and condemned to a life in prison, those present at the courtroom angrily reacted over this decision by booing and hissing. While the crowd started hurling groceries, the jailor took Gibbs away to a prison carriage as the Bailiff ordered Gibbs to be transported to the Tower of London. The further fate of this man after the unusual trial remains unknown.
