From Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  UNKNOWN. When goods have been stolen from some person unknown, they may be 
  so described in the indictment; but if the owner be really known, an 
  indictment alleging the property to belong to some person unknown is 
  improper. 2 East's P. C. 651 1 Hale, P. C. 512; Holt's N. P. C. 596 S. C. 3 
  Eng. Common Law Rep. 191; 8 C. & P. 773. Vide Indictment; Quidam.
