      Ancestry.co.uk has note that a 14 year old Thomas Doick of Sussex was sentenced to imprisonment on 4 July 1839.  Unfortunately my subscription to the site is not sufficient to enable me to view the original document, so I don't know if it is the Thomas baptised in 1823 or another one, nor do I know his crime.
