Christina Haggerty, arrested for stealing money

Description

Name: Christina Haggerty Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Arrested on: 9 February 1916 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-266-Christina Haggerty For an image of her accomplice Sarah Dowd see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/23045026252/in/dateposted/. The Shields Daily News for 9 February 1916 reports: ?ALLEGED THEFT IN BOROUGH ROAD. Today at North Shields ? Sarah Dowd (32), 8 Norfolk Street, and Christina Haggerty (36), Brannen?s Lodging House, South Shields, were charged with stealing on the 8th inst. a purse containing 5 in Treasury notes and 4s 6d in money, from a foreign seaman. Sergt. Spindler said that at 9.30pm he was on duty in the Borough Road, and the prosecutor had hold of the two women, whom he accused of robbing him of his purse, with 5 in Treasury notes, 4s 6d in money and some coins. While the prosecutor held the women, witness looked round on the ground with the help of his flash-lamp, and found the purse open, 4s 6d in silver and some coins but not the Treasury notes. Accused were remanded for eight days.? The Shields Daily News for 11 February 1916 reports: ?ALLEGED THEFT FROM THE PERSON. Sarah Dowd (32) of 8 Norfolk Street, and Christina Haggerty of Brannen?s Lodging House, South Shields, were brought up on remand at North Shields roday, charged with having stolen from the person of Dionesios Macres, a purse, valued a 6d, containing five 1 Treasury notes, 4s 6d in silver and nine coins, while in Borough Road, about 9.25pm on the 8th inst. The Chief Constable (Mr J.H. Huish) said the prosecutor had gone to sea and the charge was withdrawn.? 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.

Peter Taylor, coppersmith, arrested for stealing from his employers

Description

Name: Peter Taylor Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Arrested on: 13 May 1915 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-260-Peter Taylor The Shields Daily News for 21 May 1915 reports: ?STEALING AND RECEIVING. MAN AND WOMAN SENT TO PRISON AT NORTH SHIELDS. At North Shields today, Peter Taylor, a coppersmith, of 26 Whickham Street, Sunderland, was charged with stealing, between February 15th and May 12th, from a foundry in Lawson Street, 28 brass flanges, 25 brass bosses and a quantity of copper pipe ends, valued at 11, the property of James Hogg and Sons and Caroline Allen of 99 Church Street, Monkwearmouth was summoned for feloniously receiving the same, well knowing the same to have been stolen. Mr P.M. Dodds prosecuted and Mr L. Wolff, of Sunderland, defended the female defendant. Mr P.M. Dodds stated that Taylor had been employed by James Hogg and Sons for three months and during the last two months they had been missing brass and copper from the foundry in Lawson Street. Suspicion fell on Taylor and he was kept under observation. Det. Mason said that he had drilled a hole in a partition to watch Taylor and at 12.20pm on the 15th inst. he saw him pick up three brass flanges. He put one in his pocket and two down his trousers. He intercepted defendant and when charged he replied ?I don?t deny stealing it.? Defendant also said he sold the brass and copper to defendant Allen. He did not know how much he had stolen, but Allen said she would buy anything up to an anchor. Witness then went to Sunderland and charged Allen, and she said Taylor had been telling lies, as she did not know they were stolen. She admitted buying flanges etc. from Allen, about four times a week, and she sold them to a Gateshead store. John Hearn, foreman for James Hogg and Sons, went to Gateshead with Det. Mason and identified some flanges and copper. Taylor pleaded guilty and Allen not guilty. Mr Wolff then submitted there was no case against Allen, on the ground that she had not a guilty knowledge. The magistrates committed Taylor to prison for three months and Allen for one month in the second division. The Mayor (Counc. H. Gregg) said that if it was not for the likes of Allen, Taylor would not be in the position he was in.?

Description

Name: James G. Chase Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Arrested on: 22 January 1916 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-264-James G Chase The Shields Daily News for 28 January 1916 reports: ?FALSE PRETENCES CASE AT NORTH SHIELDS. At North Shields today, James George Chase (23), a munition worker, residing at Lynn Villa, Billy Mill, was brought up on remand, charged with having unlawfully obtained by false pretences, from Joseph Emery, the sum of 20, with intent to cheat and defraud, between Dec. 13th and Jan. 17th. Joseph Emery stated in May last he became acquainted with the defendant. During the latter part of that month the defendant told him something about an estate in Australia, valued at 70,000. About the 17th December, witness received a letter, which was supposed to have come from a detective at Scotland Yard, and his wife received a wire for 10 to be sent to the defendant in London, and witness sent it. On the 10th inst. the defendant returned from London and handed witness a sealed envelope. He opened it and found it contained two documents. After reading them, defendant asked is he was satisfied and he said it seemed to be alright. On the 17th inst. the defendant asked for another 10 and witness gave it to him. On the 21st inst. witness communicated with the police and on the 22nd obtained a warrant for the defendant?s arrest. Det. Radcliffe stated that on the 22nd inst. he arrested the defendant in Saville Street, and brought him to the Central Police Station. He read the warrant over and defendant replied ?I can?t say anything until I have seen Mr Emery?. Afterwards he said there was no truth in the statement regarding the fortune. When charged this morning he replied ?I admit everything: I know I have done wrong?. Defendant pleaded guilty and had nothing to say. Mr Emery, recalled, said he had not believed half the defendant?s statements from the first. The defendant had said that a young man had to go with him to Australia as a bodyguard to bring the money back. The defendant was committed to prison for one month in the second division.?

Frederick Ellwood, fireman, arrested for breaking and entering

Description

Name: Frederick Ellwood Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Arrested on: 4 August 1914 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-254-Frederick Ellwood The Shields Daily News for 7 August 1914 reports: ?BREAKING AND ENTERING INTO A NORTH SHIELDS STORE. This morning at North Shields, Frederick Ellwood, fireman, Dublin and Francis Rice, labourer, North Shields, were charged with breaking and entering into the store of Messrs Harrison and Robinson, Clive Street, on the night of August 3rd and stealing therefrom a quantity of bacon, ham and other goods. Robert Appleby, 74 Linskill Street, storekeeper, said he locked up the stores, 10 Clive Street, at 12.55 on the Monday night. On opening the place the next morning he found the back door had been forced open and on examining the stock he missed the goods to the amount stated. PC Alexander stated that in company with PC Butler he saw Rice go up the stairs of the stores in a suspicious manner. Witness spoke to Ellwood who said Rice lived in the place. On going to the store, witness found the door had been forced open and he sent Butler for assistance. Inspector McQueen deposed to coming to the assistance of the officers and on going up the stairs of the house next to the store, he knocked at the door of a room occupied by Rice. After a time he got in and found the stuff in the room. He arrested Rice and Ellwood and on charging them the former said ?I took my part in it? and the latter ?I stole the things?. Defendants pleaded guilty and asked the bench to be lenient with them. Rice said he saw Ellwood was in very straightened circumstances and he got the things to help the family. Ellwood said he was out of work at the time. The bench ordered the defendants to pay 20s and costs or in default to go to prison for one month?.

Chief Constable Huish said that defendant had been convicted at Bishop Auckland for larceny and false pretences. Defendant said he had been in the Wellesley Training Ship for six years and left three years ago. He pleaded guilty to each charge and had nothing further to say. The Bench committed him to prison for one month on each charge?. 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.
