John Legg, arrested for stealing beer

Description

Name: John Legg Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 19 September 1905 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-77-John Legg For an image of one of his accomplices, John Keating, see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/22984005345/in/album-72157.... The Shields Daily News 19 September 1905 reports: ?THEFT OF BEER AT NORTH SHIELDS. At North Shields Police Court today, John Legg, Thomas Codling and John T. Keating, young men, were charged with stealing from the warehouse of Messrs Gray and Son, wharfingers, Liddell Street, 10 gallons of beer, valued at 14s, on the 11th inst. Joseph Gunn, manager for the prosecutors, said that in consequence of something that had previously happened he concealed himself in the warehouse on the 11th inst. At 8.50pm Legg and Keating entered the yard and made their way to the beer shed. He came out of hiding and caught the two men named and sent for the police. PC Graham said he arrested the accused and searched them. In the possession of Legg he found three spiles, which he said he used to stop the beer after he tapped the barrel. Witness afterwards charged all three. Legg replied ?I did not steal all that.? Codling said: ?I never stole that much? and Keating answered ?The same for me?. On being formally charged the accused pleaded guilty and they were each committed to prison for one month?. Sadly, this wasn't be be John Legg's last court appearance. The Shields Daily News for 28 February 1907 reports: "THEFT OF IRON AT NORTH SHIELDS. YOUTHS SENT TO PRISON. At North Shields Police Court today, John Legg (19), Skipsey's Quay; Robert Richardson (17) and John Richardson (14), Union Stairs, Liddell Street, were charged with having stolen a quantity of iron from the Shields Engineering Company's Works, Bell Street, on the 27th inst. PC Dixon said that at 9.50 last night he was on duty in Liddell Street, near the Engineering Works, when he heard a noise on the shore. On going there he found a bag containing iron on the bottom of some steps and the three prisoners a few yards away. He asked them what they were doing there and they said they were looking for wood. While they were talking Legg went away and witness followed, but was unable to find him, and the iron had also disappeared. He afterwards saw the three prisoners in Richardson's home and arrested them. He charged them with the theft and they replied that the iron was there when they went on the shore. An assistant manager of the Shields Engineering Coy. valued the iron produced at 2s. The two eldest prisoners pleaded guilty, but John Richardson denied the charge. Legg, who had previously been imprisoned for larceny, was sent to gaol for a month with hard labour. Robert Richardson was committed for seven days in the second division and John Richardson was discharged." For an image of Legg's accomplice Robert Richardson see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/18447897895/in/album-72157.... 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.

James George Chase, munitions worker, arrested for obtaining money by false pretences

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.? 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.

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?.

George Walker, soldier, arrested for cashing a forged cheque

Description

Name: George Walker Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 15 March 1916 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-264-George Walker The Shields Daily News for 20 March 1916 reports: ?FORGING CHEQUES. YOUNG SOLDIERS CHARGED AT NORTH SHIELDS. At North Shields today ? Harold Weston Cummings (17), a soldier, of 33 Hanover Gardens, Kensington Oval, London, SE, was brought up on remand, charged with having feloniously forged a bank cheque for the sum of 4 15s on or about Feb. 25th. Geo. Ernest Walker (17), a soldier of Freer Street, Walsall, was charged with cashing the cheque on the 25th Feb. They were further charged with similar offences on the 25th Feb. Mr F. Lambert defended both defendants. James Hamilton Johns, Second Lieutenant in the South Staffordshire Regiment, said Cummings was attached to the same regiment at Earsdon. The cheque produced signed ?J.H. Johns? was not out of his book and it was not his signature. Witness never asked the defendants to sign cheques on his behalf. Walker was also billeted at Earsdon. James N. Wilson, cashier at Lloyd?s Bank, Howard Street, North Shields, said that between 10 and 12.30 on the 25th Feb. Walker came to the bank and asked to cash the cheque produced. Witness asked where he came from and he said Shiremoor and he cashed it. The cheque was sent in the usual way and it was returned as the signature had been forged. The cheque was from a quartermaster?s book, which had been lost or stolen at Plymouth. Detective-Sergeant Hall said that on the 11th inst. he went to Earsdon and arrested Cummings and when cautioned he replied ?I have nothing to say?. On the way to North Shields he said: ?I did not attempt to alter the handwriting in any way. I have had the cheque book about a year and have never attempted to use it?. Later, witness saw Walker in the custody of the Newcastle police and when cautioned, he replied ?I have nothing to say?. Mr Lambert stated that the other charge was of a precisely similar character and he did not think it necessary to go into it. There could not be any doubt that the charges were serious ones but he suggested that, having regard to all the circumstances, it could be settled to the satisfaction of the police and the bankers. The defendants were both 17 years of age, and young as they were they had already served in the army for four years. Walker?s father had been 26 years in the army and was now in France. The police might be prepared to allow the more serious charge to be reduced to one of false pretences and the money would be refunded by the officers of the regiment. Chief Constable said the defendants had cashed three more cheques at Whitley and attempted to cash one at Newcastle. The people on these cases had refused to prosecute. Capt. Anderson gave the defendants good characters. Chief Constable Huish said he had no objection to the cases being reduced. The second case was not proceeded with and Cummings was charged with having received the money by false pretences and Walker with aiding and abetting. Both men pleaded guilty. The Chairman said the defendants would be bound over for twelve months and they were greatly indebted to their solicitor and officers." 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.
