James Watson was one of four Spenceans (followers of Thomas Spence, a leading English revolutionary of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries), charged with High Treason following the Spa Fields Riots of December 1816. Watson was on trial during June the following year and was acquitted. The other three were released without trial.
