Margaret Ann O'Brien, arrested for obtaining money by false pretences

Description

Name: Margaret A O'Brien Arrested for: Larceny Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 6 August 1904 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-35-Margaret O Brien The Shields Daily Gazette for 6 August 1904 reports: ?Margaret Ann O?Brien (14), 1 Queen?s Terrace, North Shields, was charged with attempting to obtain the sum of £1 from Messrs Irvin & Sons, with intent to cheat and defraud them, on the 5th August. Remanded for eight days?. The Shields Daily Gazette for 13 August 1904 reports: ?NORTH SHIELDS GIRL SENT TO GAOL At North Shields to-day, Margaret A. O?Brien (14), 1 Queen?s Terrace, North Shields, was charged on remand with unlawfully attempting to obtain from John Thos. Hewitt the sum of £1, the money of Messrs Irvin and Sons, fishing boat owners, with intent to cheat and defraud. She was further charged with obtaining £1 on another date from the same firm. In the first case Mr Hewitt stated that the girl came to the office of his employer on the 5th inst., and said she had been sent by Mrs Davies, the wife of an engineer serving on one of their boats, the Langley castle, and asked for a sovereign. As she had twice previously been at the office for money, supposed to be for Mrs Davies, but which she had never received, witness detained her and sent for the police. Elizabeth Ellen Davies, wife of George Davies, stated her husband was employed by Messrs Irvin and Sons. She had never sent the accused to receive any money at the office. She had only seen her once before and only knew her by sight. Detective-Sergt. Scougal spoke to being called to Messrs Irvin and Sons? office on the Fish Quay and finding the accused detained there. He charged her with attempting to obtain £1 by means of false pretences and she admitted the offence. At first she told him that her sister sent her, but subsequently she said she had gone on her own initiative. On the second charge it was stated in evidence that the accused went to the office on the 29th ult. and asked for£1 for Mrs Davies. This was given to her and she signed the receipt as Lily Muir. Detective Scougal said when charged with the second offence she stated that a man of the name of Cook had sent her and had given her a share of the money. Her story, however, could not be verified. The accused, who was crying bitterly, admitted the theft in both cases. The Chairman (Mr F.R.N. Haswell) said the magistrates had been very much puzzled to know what to do with the accused, as she did not seem to have an idea of what theft was. He added that they were going to inflict a punishment upon her which it was hoped would have the effect of reclaiming her from the career in which she had started. He committed her to prison for seven days on each charge. There were two other cases of the same character against her, but one was withdrawn and other was not gone into". 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.

Robert Lightly alias Golightly

Description

Name: Robert Lightly alias Golightly Arrested for: Larceny Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 27 May 1904 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-29-Robert Lightly AKA Golightly For an image of Lightly's accomplice, Anthony Russell see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/19172779382/in/dateposted/. The Shields Daily Gazette for 28 May 1904 reports: ?TWO MINERS HAVE A NIGHT OUT. FRACAS ON A NO. SHIELDS FARM At North Shields Anthony Russell (27) and Robert Lightly (24), pitmen, Percy Main, were charged with being concerned together in stealing a duck, value 10s, the property of Mr Elwin on the 22nd inst. Joseph Elwin said that at 4.25 am he was awakened by his father, who told him that he had heard three shots fired. He got up and looked out of the window, and saw two men, each carrying a gun, on the field of the farm. He went out with another lad, and on getting up to men he saw that one was carrying a bundle, from which he saw a hare?s head protruding. He asked him why he had shot the hare on his father?s land. They made no reply and walked away. He then gave information to the police. On getting back to the farm he missed a duck. An officer spoke to arresting the defendants and charged them with stealing a duck. Lightly replied that Russell shot the duck and took it away. Russell replied that he burnt it. Mr Duncan, for the defence, said that there was no doubt they shot the duck, but it was not with a felonious intent. It appeared that on the Saturday night they had taken too much drink, and on the Sunday morning they got up at four o?clock and took their guns into the fields. Russell had seen a duck and the temptation had been too strong, and he had shot it. The Bench committed both defendants to prison for 14 days. The prisoners were afterwards charged with threatening Joseph Elwin. The prosecutor said that when he accused the two men of trespassing on the farm they both threatened to shoot him if he did not get out of their way. Lightly said that he would drill rabbit holes into him. Mr Duncan, for the defendants, denied the charges, and stated that Elwin challenged the men to fight. The defendants both denied the charge on oath. They were both bound over in the sum of £10 in their own recognisances and sureties of £10 each, or in default committed for 14 days; they were also ordered to pay the costs for both sides or in default go to prison for seven days. The defendant Lightly was charged with assaulting Elwin by striking him in the chest with his fist and with the muzzle end of the gun. The defendants were next charged with trespassing in search of game at Chirton Hill Farm on the same date. Mr Duncan submitted that the defendants had already been sufficiently punished for their offence, and the summons for trespass ought to be withdrawn, especially as it was taken out against the wish of Mr Elwin. The Chief Constable contradicted the latter statement. Mr Duncan said that Mr Elwin had stated in Court that he did not wish the case to proceed and therefore the summons could not stand. The Chief Constable sad that he himself was the informant in the case and he intended to go on with it. Mr Duncan took the ruling of the Court on the point, and Mr Kidd decided that the Chief Constable was acting within his rights. After hearing the evidence, the magistrates fined defendants 10s and costs or in default 14 days imprisonment to run concurrently with the other commitments?.

John Clark

Description

Name: John Clark Arrested for: Loitering Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 9 March 1905 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-67-John Clark-1 The Shields Daily News for 9 March 1905 reports: ?SUSPICIOUS CONDUCT AT TYNEMOUTH. A POLICEMAN COMPLIMENTED. At North Shields Police Court today, John Clark (54), no fixed abode, was charged with loitering in Tynemouth Terrace back lane for the purpose of committing a felony. PC Telford said that shortly before 11 o?clock yesterday morning he saw the accused going about Front Street in a very suspicious manner. He was examining the shop doors and walked slowly in the direction of Tynemouth Terrace. He went up the back lane and entered two separate back yards. Witness spoke to him and questioned him. He said that he had gone into the yard to get a drink and had got one at the tap. Witness took him back to the yard and there was no tap. The man then said that he had got a drink from the tub. There was a young woman looking down from one of the windows and she said she had seen the defendant looking about the yard in a suspicious manner and on seeing her he had cleared out. Witness, not being satisfied with the man?s story, took him into custody. Prisoner now said that he had been looking for work at Whitley. The magistrates remanded the accused for eight days in order to make inquiries. The chairman complimented the officer for the quiet and careful way in which he had attended to the case?.

Inside the Southwick Engine Works, Sunderland

Description

Lowering a crankshaft into position at the Southwick Engine Works of George Clark Ltd, Sunderland, April 1955 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/13527E). Sunderland has a remarkable history of innovation in shipbuilding and marine engineering. From the development of turret ships in the 1890s and the production of Doxford opposed piston engines after the First World War through to the designs for Liberty ships in the 1940s and SD14s in the 1960s. Sunderland has much to be proud of. Tyne & Wear Archives cares for tens of thousands of photographs in its shipbuilding collections. Most of these focus on the ships ? in particular their construction, launch and sea trials. This set looks to redress the balance and to celebrate the work of the men and women who have played such a vital part in the region?s history. The images show the human side of this great story, with many relating to the world famous shipbuilding and engineering firm William Doxford & Sons Ltd. The Archives has produced a short blog to accompany these images. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share these digital images within the spirit of The Commons.

'Muristan' under construction at Readhead's shipyard

Description

The cargo ship ?Muristan? under construction at the shipyard of John Readhead & Sons Ltd, South Shields, 4 November 1949 (TWAM ref. 1061/1084). This set celebrates the achievements of the shipyard of John Readhead & Sons. The firm has played a significant role in the North East?s illustrious shipbuilding history and the development of South Shields. The company began in 1865 when John Readhead, a shipyard manager, entered into business with J Softley at a small yard on the Lawe at South Shields. Following the dissolution of the partnership in 1872, it continued as John Readhead & Co on the same site until 1880 when the High West Yard was purchased. After Readhead?s four sons were taken into the business in 1888 the company traded as John Readhead & Sons becoming a limited company in 1908. In 1968 the company was absorbed by the Swan Hunter Group and in 1977 became part of the nationalised British Shipbuilders. In the same year the last vessel was launched and the site was sold off in 1984. Readheads was prolific and built over 600 ships from 1865 to 1968, including 87 vessels for the Hain Steamship Company Ltd and over forty for the Strick Line Ltd. The shipyard also built four ships for the Prince Line, founded by Sir James Knott. The firm built vessels, which were involved in the major conflicts of the Twentieth Century. During the First World War they built patrol vessels and ?x? lighters (motor landing craft used in the Gallipoli campaign) for the Admiralty. During the Second World War the firm built tankers for the Normandy Landings. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons.
