Charles Pearson, arrested for stealing from offices

Description

Name: Charles Pearson Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 15 November 1907 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-117-Charles Pearson An image of his accomplice Stephen Fitzgibbon is available www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/24620365114/in/album-72157.... An image of his brother, Thomas Pearson, is also available www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/25158947272/in/album-72157.... The Shields Daily News for 16 November 1907 reports: ?THEFTS FROM OFFICE ON THE NORTH SHIELDS FISH QUAY. At the North Shields Police Court this morning - before Lieut.-Colonel F.R.N. Haswell, Coun. G. Addison and Mr G.H. Stansfield - Stephen Fitzgibbon (17) of 15 Bird Street; Thomas Pearson (16) and Charles Pearson (19), also of Bird Street, were brought up in custody charged with various thefts. Fitzgibbon and Thomas Pearson were charged with larceny from back yards, being called upon to answer three cases, while Fitzgibbon and Charles Pearson were charged with three thefts from offices on the North Shields Fish Quay. Evidence having been given in support of all the cases, the defendants were formally charged. They admitted the thefts and had no excuse to offer. Chief Constable Huish told the magistrates that other charges could have been preferred against the accused. Altogether there had been eleven offices broken into on the quay. They were each committed to prison for 14 days in each case, which means Fitzgibbon will receive three months? hard labour and the two Pearsons 6 weeks each. Chief Constable Huish mentioned that the elder Pearson was in the habit of carrying about with him loaded firearms. A six-chambered revolver had been recovered from his house.? These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 in the collection of Tyne & Wear Archives (TWA ref DX1388/1). This set contains mugshots of boys and girls under the age of 21. This reflects the fact that until 1970 that was the legal age of majority in the UK.

Name: Mary A. Marr Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 6 June 1906 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-41-Mary A Marr For an image of her daughter Alice Maud Marr see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/16935100722/in/album-72157.... For an image of her son Charles Marr see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/16567211557/in/album-72157.... For an image of her daughter Mary Ellen Marr see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/17084333602/in/album-72157.... The Shields Daily News for 6 June 1906 reports: "THEFT OF A SAILOR'S BAG AT NORTH SHIELDS. At North Shields Police Court today Charles Marr, Mary Ann Marr, Mary Ellen Marr and Chas. Marr were charged with being concerned together in stealing a sailor's bag of clothing etc, valued at 2, the property of John Partis Gibson, a seaman. Supt. Jamieson of the BTP prosecuted. The prosecutor said that on the 7th May he joined the s.s. Camelia, which was then lying at the Commissioners? Staithes. He was proceeding to the docks with his bag and when passing the North Shields Railway Station the defendant Chas. Marr came up to him and offered to carry his bag for 1d. He said he would give him 3d if he carried it to the docks and he agreed to do so. He gave him the bag and told him he was going to make a purchase. On reaching his vessel he failed to see the boy and gave information to the police. He went to sea the same day and had just returned. Two pawnbrokers? assistants spoke to receiving a portion of the stolen clothing from two of the female defendants. Sub-Inspector Leitch said that on the 8th May, from information received, he made enquiries and proceeded to the North Shields Railway Station, where he found the boy Marr and questioned him. He told witness he took the bag home, being unable to find the man who had engaged him at the dock. He went to the house occupied by the defendants and spoke to Mrs Marr with regard to the bag. She told him it was in the cupboard. He took possession of it and found that it contained only a small portion of the stolen clothing. He mentioned this circumstance to her and she said it was just the same as it was when it was brought in the previous day and that it had not been touched. He searched the house and found a portion of the property and he recovered the remainder from the pawnbrokers. He added that the boy told the truth at once and had given him every assistance in recovering the property, while the mother had given him a great deal of trouble. Formally charged, the mother, Mary Ann Marr, said it would not have happened had it not been for need. Charles, who made his 13th appearance, was given the option of a fine, he having assisted the police, and he was mulcted in 1s without costs. Marry Ann Marr, whom the magistrates considered was the chief instigator in the theft, was committed to prison for 14 days, while Mary Ellen Marr was sentenced to 7 days imprisonment. Because of her youth, Alice Marr was discharged." The Shields Daily News for 24 January 1907 reports: "THEFT OF DOOR MATS. MOTHER AND DAUGHTERS SENT TO PRISON. At North Shields Police Court today Mary Ellen Marr (21), Alice Maud Marr (17), sisters, and Mary Ann Marr (44), their mother, were charged with having stolen an indiarubber door mat, valued at 1 4s, the property of Joseph Ostens, from the doorway of his house, 34 Grosvenor Place, on the 17th inst., or with having received the same, well knowing it to have been stolen. They were further charged with having stolen a similar mat, valued at 1 3s, from the doorway of No. 32 Grosvenor Place, on the 17th inst., the property of John R Sutherland. There was a third charge against Mary Ellen and Alice Maud of having stolen on the 21st ult., from the porch of Percy Park House, Grand Parade, Tynemouth, an indiarubber mat, valued at 1 10s, the property of Mr A. O. Carr, JP. In the first case, Detective Sergeant Hall said that on the 18th inst. he arrested the accused at their residence in Church Way. He found the mat produced cut to pieces in the kitchen. Afterwards it was identified by the prosecutor as his property. In the other cases, evidence was given to the effect that the two other mats had been similarly treated, and that one of them had been disposed of at a marine store dealer's for 3s 6d. Previous convictions against the accused were put in by the Chief Constable (Mr J. H. Huish) and the magistrates committed the mother to prison for 14 days on each of the two charges preferred against her and sent the daughters to gaol for 14 days on each of the three charges preferred against them."

Chief Constable Huish told the magistrates that other charges could have been preferred against the accused. Altogether there had been eleven offices broken into on the quay. They were each committed to prison for 14 days in each case, which means Fitzgibbon will receive three months? hard labour and the two Pearsons 6 weeks each. Chief Constable Huish mentioned that the elder Pearson was in the habit of carrying about with him loaded firearms. A six-chambered revolver had been recovered from his house.?

SOLDIERS COMMITTED FOR TRIAL AT NORTH SHIELDS. Frederick Jones (19) and John Thomas Ingleson (19), soldiers, stationed at Earsdon, were brought up on remand at North Shields today charged with breaking and entering on the 30th March a dwelling house, situated at 9 Lovaine Terrace and stealing 16 knives, a cruet, clock, pair of scissors, case of needles, silver tray and two salt cellars valued at 3 7s 6d the property of the executors of the late Thomas Williamson. They were also charged with breaking and entering between 10pm on the 29th ult. and 7.45am on the 30th ult. a confectioner?s shop in Queen Alexandra Road and stealing two loaves of bread, valued at 7d, the property of Messrs Patterson and Reed. George Anderson, a cashier, identified the goods as the property of the executors of the late Mr Williamson. PC John Dixon stated that at 2.50am on the 30th ult. he found a window broken at 9 Lovaine Terrace. He lifted the sash and upon shining his lamp around the room he saw Jones behind a bookcase and the other man crouching in a corner. Witness arrested defendants and on searching them at the police station found the goods mentioned in their possession? Det.-Insp. said that on the morning of the 30th, from what Jones told him, he examined Messrs Patterson and Reed?s shop and found a large stone, which exactly fitted the break in the window. Afterwards witness jointly charged both men and Jones replied, ?We did it? and Ingleson said, ?I say the same?. When formally charged with the first offence Jones said, ?We took them? and Ingleson said, ?We wanted to get in there mostly to get some clothes?. Replying to the second charge, defendants both said they wanted something to eat. They were committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions and the magistrates complimented PC Dixon upon his smart capture. On the recommendation of Chief Constable Huish, the Watch Committee have granted the merit badge to PC Dixon.? The Shields Daily News for 9 April 1915 reports: ?SHOP BREAKING BY SOLDIERS AT NORTH SHIELDS Frederick Jones, 19, and John Thomas Ingleson, 19, privates in the Duke of Wellington?s First Riding Regiment, stationed at Earsdon, were charged with having broken into the unoccupied house of the late Mr Thomas Williamson, Lovaine House, Lovaine Terrace, North Shields on March 30 and with having stolen various goods, valued at 3 7s 6d. They were also charged with the theft of two loaves of bread from the confectionery shop of Messrs Patterson and Reed at North Shields on the same date. Accused pleaded guilty. An officer from the prisoners? regiment said they were indifferent soldiers, because they had repeatedly absented themselves without leave. The officer knew nothing about the men?s records and said that was a matter that was not very carefully gone into at this time. The Chairman said he observed from the depositions taken at the police court that Jones said, ?We wanted money and clothes. I have soldiered for six months for a shilling. I got 90 days pay stopped.? The officer said it was true that Jones had lost a great deal of his pay but that was for absenting himself from his regiment. The balance of the account was on the other side. Jones, who was convicted of wilful damage at Dublin in May last, was sentenced to six months? imprisonment with hard labour on each charge, to run concurrently. Ingleson was sentenced to four months imprisonment with hard labour?.

At North Shields Police Court today, James Lee, alias John Lee (42), fitter, Manchester, was charged with having obtained, by means of false pretences, food of the value of 2s and 5s in money from Isabella Bowmaker on the 8th ult. Prosecutrix who resides at Coulson?s Bank, Clive Street, said that the accused came to her house and asked to be taken in as a lodger. They came to terms, the prisoner promising to pay 14s per week. He said he was busy altering a weighing machine on the Penny Ferry landing and would be engaged at least a week. He stayed until the following day and after he had had his dinner he borrowed 5s from her, saying he had to get some ironwork at the North Shields Railway Station. He went out and did not return. Afterwards she made enquiries and ascertained that his representations were false. Alex. Roberts, bridgeman at the ferry landing, said there were no weighing machines on the landing. Inspector Thornton gave evidence as to arresting and charging the prisoner, who admitted his guilt. There was a second charge against him of having obtained, by means of false pretences, 2s from Robert Atkinson, on the 4th ult. Prosecutor said the accused came to him and told him that the firm with which he was employed in Sheffield had failed to send him certain tools and he wished to wire them and his wife. He pulled some money out of his pocket, accused having asked for the loan of 1s 6d, and when he saw a two shilling piece, he remarked: ?Make it 2s?. He did so and never saw him again. Chief Constable Huish put in a record of convictions against the prisoner, who had suffered imprisonment for fraud in various parts of the country. Accused said he intended to refund the money after he had obtained employment. The magistrates committed him to prison for 3 months in each case?.

William Townsley, labourer, arrested for stealing jewellery

Description

Name: William Townsley Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: not given Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-81-William Townsley This image of Townsley seems to have been supplied by the Gateshead Constabulary to the police at North Shields. An image of his accomplice, Luke Swailes is available here www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/27190318155/in/album-72157.... The Shields Daily News for 29 September 1906 reports: ?THEFT OF JEWELLERY AT NORTH SHIELDS. TWO MEN COMMITTED FOR TRIAL. This morning at the North Shields Police Court, before Captain J. Sanderson and Mr G.H. Stansfield, Luke Swailes (60), general dealer and Wm. Townsley, a young man, both of Gateshead, were charged with stealing, on the 27th of November 1905, from Welbury House, Preston Park, three bracelets, a neck chain, locket, ring and brooch, value 20, the property of Ethel Annie Freeth. Swailes was further charged with receiving from Wm. Townsley a gold expansion bracelet and watch value 6, the property of Alfred John Freeth, well knowing the same to have been stolen. Mr G W Chapman represented Swailes. Ethel Annie Freeth said that on Sunday, November 26th, she left her watch and bracelet in a drawer in the bedroom, together with the other articles mentioned in the charge. On the afternoon of the next day she missed them and gave information to the police. Elizabeth Irvin, dressmaker, 84 Grey Street, said that in November last she was employed at the Elms, Preston Park, which was next door to Freeth?s house. On the afternoon of the 27th, she saw a man prowling about in front of the sitting room window and took good notice of him. On January 30th, she identified him among six men at Gateshead Police Station and now identified him as the prisoner Townsley. Edward Surtees Chisholm, manager of the New Gateshead Inn, North Street, Gateshead, stated that he had known the prisoner Swailes for several years. He was a respectable general dealer. He came to witness?s house one Tuesday in November or December and offered him the watch bracelet for 2. The witness bought it for that sum which he thought was a fair price. Detective Radcliffe said he was present at the Gateshead Police Station when Miss Irvin identified Townsley. The prisoner said ?I can soon get out of that, I was in hospital at the time.? On Friday 21st, he arrested Swailes on a warrant. When witness read the warrant over to him he said, ?He (Townsley) must be a scoundrel. This is some more he has put on to me.? Later he said, ?I have only to say that Townsley is a thorough scoundrel. I am as innocent as a child unborn.? Witness showed him the watch bracelet and told him that that was what he was charged with receiving. He replied, ?I have never seen it before.? In the cell he said, ?I think the best thing in a case of this kind is to plead guilty. Chisholm knew as well as I did that I got it from Townsley. He asked me if it was straight and I told him he would not get it for 2 if it had been.? Neither of the prisoners, when charged this morning, had anything to say. The prisoner Swailes gave evidence on his own behalf. He said that he was 50 years of age and a general dealer and lived at 4 Towns Street, New Gateshead. About Christmas the accused Townsley came to him. Previous to that he did not know the man. Townsley asked him if he would buy a bracelet, as he wanted the money to go to Scotland. Asked where he had got it, he said he found it sometime since at Jesmond on a seat. He asked 2 for it, and witness telling him that all the money he had upon him was 35s, Townsley at once handed it over for that price. At Chisholm?s bar next day witness offered it for sale to him and he bought it for 2. Witness thought that would be about the value of the article and did not for one moment imagine it had been stolen. From what he was, however, told later he has very reason to think that the bracelet had been stolen. Afterwards from time to time witness advanced Townsley?s mother small sums of money. Eventually he stopped lending her money, whereupon she made a charge against him to the Gateshead Police. He was tried on that charge at Durham Assizes and acquitted. When charged last Friday week with the offence now being dealt with he did deny that he bought the bracelet from Townsley. He did this because he was afraid of getting Chisholm into trouble. Later he admitted that he had sold it. Cross-examined by the Chief Constable (Mr. J. H. Huish) Swailes admitted that when arrested he did not know that the bracelet was in the hands of the police. The prisoner Townsley reserved his defence. Both prisoners were committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions. Townsley who was in charge of warders, was conveyed to Newcastle Gaol to await trial. Swailes was admitted to bail in his own recognisances of 50 and one surety of 50. Townsley is at present undergoing a sentence of three years penal servitude for burglary at Hedgeley Heath and was brought before the magistrates on a Home Office order." The Shields Daily News for 19 October 1906 reports: ?William Townsley, 22, labourer, pleaded guilty to having stolen 20 worth of jewellery at Tynemouth on Nov. 27, 1905, the property of Miss Ethel Annie Freeth of Preston Park, North Shields. Luke Swailes, 59, dealer, pleaded not guilty to a charge of having received the jewellery, well knowing it to have been stolen. Mr Griffith Jones prosecuted and Mr Mundahl defended the accused Swailes. The jury found Swailes guilty and he was sentenced to three months? hard labour. Townsley, who is currently undergoing a sentence of three years? penal servitude at Stafford Prison, was sentenced to a similar term, to run concurrently with the sentence he is now serving?.
