Patrick Liljebald, ship's steward, arrested for breaking and entering

Description

Name: Patrick Liljebald Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 5 December 1907 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-119-Patrick Liljebald For an image of his accomplice Eilert Tiller see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/25961770405/in/album-72157.... The Shields Daily News for 13 December 1907 reports: ?SEAFARING MEN SENT TO PRISON. Patrick Liljebald (35), described as a ship?s steward, of Gothenburg, and Eilert Tiller (20), a Norwegian sailor, were brought up on remand charged with breaking and entering on the 5th December a shop situate on the Union Quay, and stealing therefrom a quantity of cigarettes, tobacco etc, of the value of 1 4s 2d, the property of Messrs E.H. Smith and Co. The Chief Constable (Mr J.H. Huish) withdrew this charge and preferred one of simple larceny. Evidence was given to the effect that PC Armstrong, while on duty on the Union Quay, noticed that a window of the shop mentioned had been broken, and he in consequence kept observation upon the premises. Blowing his whistle and waving his lamp about he attracted the attention of a night watchman ? Lawrence Bonholm ? who came to his assistance. Leaving the latter outside, the officer entered the premises and found the two prisoners who tried to conceal themselves. He took them into custody and had them conveyed to the police station. On being charged with breaking and entering the premises, Liljebald said he had only gone there to get a sleep, while the other prisoner made no reply. They were both sent to prison for one month with hard labour.?

Stephen Fitzgibbon, arrested for a series of thefts

Description

Name: Stephen Fitzgibbon Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 15 November 1907 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-115-Stephen Fitzgibbon An image is available of his accomplice Thomas Pearson 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.

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 for1 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.

ACCUSED COMMITTED FOR TRIAL At North Shields Police Court today John McClarance or Noble (24), belonging to Sunderland, was charged with having stolen a jacket and vest, and two silk handkerchiefs, valued at 15s, the property of the executors of the late J. M. Fisher, pawnbroker carrying on business in Saville Street. Joseph Fisher, an assistant with the prosecutors, stated that at 10.45 a.m., from what he was told, he missed the articles from the rail above the shop door. He saw the prisoner, accompanied by two other men, walking up the street, the prisoner carrying the missing goods. He followed them into Wellington Street, and the accused ran into a back lane and threw the bundle into Wood?s bakehouse. James Wilson Veitch, another assistant, who joined the chase of the three men, said that he followed them through the streets until they reached Coach Lane. There he met Inspector Proud, and after he had caught the prisoner he handed him over to the custody of the inspector. Evidence of the arrest was given by Inspector Proud, who stated that when he charged the accused he replied, ?I only picked them up from the flags.? Formally charged by the Magistrate?s Clerk, he said, ?That?s right.? Chief Constable Huish stated that the accused made his 14th appearance. He had served 12 months, and had been convicted of theft twice this year, receiving three months on each occasion. The magistrates committed him for trial.?

Ellen Leavy alias Burns, arrested for stealing clothes

Description

Name: Ellen Leavy alias Burns Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 5 March 1906 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-39-Ellen Leavy AKA Burns For an image of her accomplice (and daughter), Rose Sparrow, see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/16888885997/in/album-72157.... The Shields Daily News for 12 March 1906 reports: ?SHOP-DOOR ROBBERIES AT NORTH SHIELDS. MOTHER AND DAUGHTER SENT TO PRISON. At North Shields Police Court today Ellen Leavey (46), 8 Barrington Lane and Rose Sparrow (26), Park Street, South Shields, mother and daughter, were charged on remand with having, on the 3rd March, stolen from the shop door of No. 96 Bedford Street, a child?s dress, valued at 6s 11d, or with receiving the same, well knowing it to have been stolen. An assistant with the prosecutrix (Miss M.A. Hogg), a draper, said she missed the dress and gave information to the police. Inspector Thornton said that he arrested the prisoner Sparrow in Barrington Street, South Shields and charged her with the theft and she replied that she was so drunk that she knew nothing about it. PC Graham said he arrested Leavey in the back lane of Sibthorpe Street, she then having the dress in her possession. He charged her and she made no reply. They were further charged on the same date with having stolen seven blouses valued at 13s 8d from the shop door of Mr Thos. Heslop, draper, Saville Street. Prosecutor said that at 3.20 pm, from what he was told, he followed the prisoners down Rudyard Street back lane and found the seven blouses and two pairs of boots under the shawl of the younger prisoner. The elder woman had also two pairs of boots. He detained Leavey until the arrival of the police, but Sparrow bolted. Bridget Leavey, a child of 10 and a daughter and sister of the prisoners, who was with them, said she saw Rosie steal the articles and give them to her mother to run way with. Prisoners were also charged with having stolen four pairs of boots, valued at 16s 10d, from the shop door of Messrs Stead and Simpson, 2 Saville Stret, on the 3rd inst. and further with having stolen a shawl, valued at 3s, from the shop door of Margaret Armstrong on the 3rd inst. Similar evidence was given and upon being formally charged Leavey pleaded not guilty and Sparrow admitted the thefts and said her mother had nothing to do with them. She asked to be leniently dealt with. She had taken to drink in consequence of her husband having neglected her and if she was given one more chance she would keep off the drink and never enter the town again. The magistrate committed them to prison for 7 days in each case, one month in all. The Chairman (Ald Collins), after giving the decision, said the tradesmen were very much to blame for hanging goods outside the door. If they insisted on hanging goods outside, they must have someone to watch them. The Chief Constable said they were indebted to Mr Heslop for the arrest of the prisoners?.

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.

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?.
