James Waters alias Joseph Turnbull, arrested for housebreaking

Description

Name: James Waters alias Joseph Turnbull Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 25 September 1906 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-95-James Waters AKA Joseph Turnbull The Shields Daily News for 25 September 1906 reports: ?HOUSEBREAKING AT NORTH SHIELDS. ACCUSED COMMITTED FOR TRIAL. At North Shields Police Court today, James Turnbull, alias Waters, a young man, was charged with breaking and entering the dwelling-house, no. 2 Camp Terrace, and stealing a silver serviette ring, a lady?s silver watch, a silver spoon, a ring, bracelet, and locket, the property of Eliz. Jackson. Richard Appleby-Jackson, an articled clerk and estate agent residing at no. 2 Camp Terrace, said that on the 29th Aug. last he and the other members of the family left home and returned on the 12th Sept, finding that it had been broken into, and that a number of articles valued at 4 8s had been stolen. On the 20th inst., from what he was told, he went to the police station and there identified a serviette ring, a watch, a spoon, and other articles as the property of his mother. Anna Ramsey, residing in Howard Street, said that while the prosecutrix was from home she kept the keys of the house. On the 4th Sept she went there for the purpose of watering the plants and found everything in order. She locked the house up before she left, everything then being secure. She returned three days later and found the house in a state of disorder. Mary Isabel Davies, a cook in the employ of the prosecutrix, said that while her mistress was away she went to live in Bedford Street. On the 6th Sept she obtained the keys from the last witness in order to do some cleaning. She went next day, and was unable to open the front door because the chain on the inside had been put on, and she was obliged to get assistance in order to force an entrance. When she went into the house everything was in a state of disorder and she immediately informed the police. Michael D. Hart, dealer in second-hand goods, 120 Pilgrim Street, Newcastle, stated that on the 7th inst. the prisoner came to his shop and offered to sell the locket, bracelet and ring produced, which he said belonged to his wife, and upon which he wished to raise some money, that he was out of employment. Witness gave 5s for them. Accused also offered to sell a silver serviette ring, a spoon, and a brooch, which witness declined to buy. A watchmaker and jeweller, belonging to West Hartlepool, said that on Sept 8th the prisoner came to his shop and offered the serviette ring, photo frame and spoon for sale, saying he was ?hard up?. Witness bought the articles for 4s. Later in the day he returned with a lady?s silver watch and offered to dispose of it for 10s. It was, however, defective and he accordingly declined to buy it. Detective Radcliffe deposed to visiting the house in Camp Terrace on the 7th inst and finding the house in a state of disorder. The door leading from the front to the back of the house was fastened and he had to climb through the serving aperture in order to get to the kitchen. Detective Inspector Thornton said that on the 14th inst. he went to West Hartlepool Police Station, where the serviette ring, spoon, photo frame, and watch were handed to him in the presence of the accused, who said they were the things he got from a house in North Shields. Witness told him there was a ring, a locket and bracelet missing from the same house. Prisoner replied that he sold them to a second-hand dealer in Pilgrim Street, Newcastle. On being charged this morning the prisoner made no reply. Formally charged by the Clerk (Col. R. F. Kidd), prisoner had still nothing to say. He was committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions.? At the Northumberland Quarter Sessions The Shields Daily News for 19th October 1906 reports: ?PENAL SERVITUDE FOR HOUSEBREAKING AT TYNEMOUTH James Turnbull, 26, pleaded guilty to having broken into the dwelling-house of Elizabeth Jackson at Tynemouth and stolen several articles to the value of 4 8s. He was sentenced to five years penal servitude, the sentence to run concurrently with a term he is at present serving at Durham.?

THEFT AT CHIRTON. At North Shields Police Court today, Thos. Strong, miner, Chirton, was charged with having stolen from Mr Sisterton?s market garden at Chirton on the 26th ult. a quantity of rhubarb, value 1s, and further with having committed a similar theft this morning. PC R. Askew stated that on the 26th ult., in consequence of a complaint received from Mr Sisterton, he went to the market garden kept by that gentleman. He examined some footprints in the garden and traced them to the fence, where he found a quantity of rhubarb leaves and a miner?s token bearing the number ?34?. This morning at 4.20 witness was concealed in the garden and he saw the prisoner climb over the fence, go to the rhubarb bed and cut a bunch. Witness then came out of his place of concealment, and after a chase, caught the accused.

Description

Wilhelmina Fletcher (30), a married woman, was charged with having, between Aug.17 1905 and Aug. 14 1906, stolen a silver watch and gold albert, a silver brooch, three fancy quilts, half a dozen tea spoons, half a dozen pillow cases, three linen sheets, three blankets and other articles, valued at 6 10s, the property of Jane Robertson, a widow, living at 58 Stephenson Street. The prosecutrix said the accused and her husband had a furnished room taken from her. She missed some bedclothes and taxed the accused with having taken them and she admitted having done so. Sergt. Hall said the accused went to the police station and gave herself up. From what she said witness went to 58 Stephenson Street and ascertained from the prosecutrix that the accused statements were true. Witness recovered the property which had been pledged for 1 19s 3d. The accused said she had been short of money but she intended to redeem the goods. The Deputy Clerk (Mr A. E. Kidd) said that this was a plea of not guilty and the court would have no alternative to committing the prisoner for trial. Subsequently she pleaded guilty in order that she might be dealt with summarily and expressed her sorrow. The husband came forward and said he was somewhat irregularly employed but he had invariably been in a position to give his wife sufficient for domestic requirements. There were no children. The Chairman: ?Does your wife drink?? The husband: ?Occasionally.? The Chairman, addressing the accused, said the Bench would credit her with the fact that she had given herself up to the police and would deal leniently with her. They would commit her to prison for one month in the second division. Applications by the pawnbrokers for the refunding of the money advanced on the goods were granted in this case.?

Name: Thomas Newham Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 2 May 1905 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-71-Thomas Newham The Shields Daily News for 9 May 1905 reports: "At North Shields Police Court to-day, Thomas Newham (48), clerk, 44 Adelaide Street, South Shields, was charged with having obtained, by false pretences, 1 4s, the moneys of Messrs Wawn and Son, fruiterers and potato dealers, South Shields on the 23rd February 1903. Mr T.V. Mabane prosecuted and Mr A. Whitehorn defended. Accused pleaded guilty. Prosecutor said that up to February of 1903 the accused was in his employ as a clerk. He gave him notice but he pleaded to be permitted to remain in his situation. Witness consented, but on the 21st February he discharged him, giving him his wages. Subsequently he ascertained that he had appropriated 24s which he had collected from a customer, and he (witness) had a warrant issued for his arrest. Decective Sergt. Scougal having given evidence as to charging the accused and receiving a confession of guilt, Mr Whitehorn addressed the Bench in mitigation of punishment and suggested that as the prosecutor did not press the charge and the prisoner was deeply sorry, the magistrates might deal with the case under the First Offenders Act and bind him over to come up for judgement if called upon. His sister, whose husband had a little property in the town, was prepared to stand bond for him. She offered to pay Mr Wawn the 24s out of her own pocket shortly after the warrant was issued, but the prosecutor said it was too late, and that the law would have to take its course. The magistrates bound the accused over in 5 and a surety of 5 to come up for judgement if called upon."

ACCUSED COMMITTED FOR TRIAL. Reginald Ashley Staines (30), chief steward, of 23 Milton Terrace, was brought up on remand at North Shields today, charged with having obtained by false pretences on the 22nd Nov. from Joseph Randell, the sum of 15 and on the 23rd ult. a further sum of 7 from Joseph Randell and Ed. Perris and on the same date in a like manner, the sum of 5 from William Manson Bews, with intent to cheat and defraud. Mr Frankham of Newcastle defended. Joseph Randell of 40 Drummond Terrace stated that in the early part of November last defendant came to his shop and made reference to some previous groceries and wanted to open an account. On the 22nd October he ordered goods to be sent on board his ship. On the 22nd Nov. he wanted to cash a cheque for 15. He said he had got married and wanted to go to Liverpool and witness gave him the 15. Next day he again came to the shop and asked witness to cash another cheque for 7 and he said he would send his account from Liverpool in settlement for some goods. Witness cashed the cheque. He presented the cheques on the 22nd and 23rd Nov. and they were returned on the 24th and 25th. Mr Frankham: Defendant has had other dealings with you for groceries and provision? ? Yes. Mr Frankham: Have you cashed other cheques for him? One, for 10, which was honoured. Mr Frankham: If he had asked for the loan of a certain sum, would you have give him it? ? No. Mr Frankham: He never attempted to conceal where he was going to? ? No. Mr Frankham: You made no effort to get in touch with him? ? Yes. Mr Perris went to his mother?s and could not get his address. William Manson Bews, a tailor residing in Linskill Terrace, said that on the 23rd October the defendant came to his shop and ordered a frock suit, a jack suit, a double-breasted suit and a cap. He was dressed in a naval uniform and said the things had to be delivered to the Northumberland Arms. On the 22nd November he again came to the shop and asked for his account. He told witness he was a little short of cash. Witness gave him 5 and the defendant made out a cheque for 22 12s, in payment of the clothes and the money. The cheque was presented at Farrow?s Bank, Newcastle on the 24th and returned on the 26th. Witness still had all the clothes with the exception of the uniform. George Graham Campbell of Farrow?s Bank said that no the 24th November the cheque produced, for 15, was presented and returned, marked ?N.S.?. On that date the defendant only had 3 19s 6d in the bank. On the 25th November cheques for 7 and 22 12s were presented but the defendant only had a balance of 1 19s 6d then. Detective-Sergeant Radcliffe stated that from certain information received he went to Brighton, on the 3rd inst. and took the defendant into custody from the Brighton police. He was brought to North Shields and when questioned replied ?The only thing I can say is, the cheque must not have been met?. When charged later he made no reply. The defendant pleaded not guilty. Mr Frankham said the defendant had not the slightest intent to rob anybody of money. He had a banking account and being newly married and unwell, had gone away and given these cheques. He had about 16 on board the ship and the officers were owing him about 30. The defendant gave a cheque for 1 on the 13th November as a donation to the YMCA. He had not tried to cover up any tracks and the officers on board HMS Satellite knew where he was. The defendant, in giving evidence on his own behalf, said he was chief steward on HM Yacht Medusa II. The ship came into port on the 19th November and he had leave granted because he had been ill and he was going to be married. After the marriage he went to Liverpool and was there two days and he then went to London and Brighton. He sent his medical certificate to HMS Satellite. When he got the money from Mr Randell and Mr Bews he understood he had sufficient money in the bank to meet the cheques. Money was owing to him on board the ship but he could not say how much. He had no intention of defrauding the people. The defendant was committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions?. On 6 January 1916 at Northumberland Quarter Sessions Reginald Staines was acquitted on a charge of obtaining money by false pretences from tradesmen at North Shields. These images are taken from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 (TWAM ref. DX1388/1). This set is our selection of the best mugshots taken during the First World War. They have been chosen because of the sharpness and general quality of the images. The album doesn?t record the details of each prisoner?s crimes, just their names and dates of arrest. In order to discover the stories behind the mugshots, staff from Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums visited North Shields Local Studies Library where they carefully searched through microfilm copies of the ?Shields Daily News? looking for newspaper reports of the court cases. The newspaper reports have been transcribed and added below each mugshot. Combining these two separate records gives us a fascinating insight into life on the Home Front during the First World War. These images document the lives of people of different ages and backgrounds, both civilians and soldiers. Our purpose here is not to judge them but simply to reflect the realities of their time.

These images are taken from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 (TWAM ref. DX1388/1). This set is our selection of the best mugshots taken during the First World War. They have been chosen because of the sharpness and general quality of the images. The album doesn?t record the details of each prisoner?s crimes, just their names and dates of arrest. In order to discover the stories behind the mugshots, staff from Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums visited North Shields Local Studies Library where they carefully searched through microfilm copies of the ?Shields Daily News? looking for newspaper reports of the court cases. The newspaper reports have been transcribed and added below each mugshot. Combining these two separate records gives us a fascinating insight into life on the Home Front during the First World War. These images document the lives of people of different ages and backgrounds, both civilians and soldiers. Our purpose here is not to judge them but simply to reflect the realities of their time.
