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.

Wilhelmina Fletcher, arrested for stealing

Description

Name: Wilhelmina Fletcher Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 15 August 1906 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-41-Wilhelmina Fletcher The Shields Daily News for 22 August 1906 reports: ?At North Shields Police Court today? Wilhelmina Fletcher (30), a married woman, was charged with having, between Aug.17 1905 and Aug. 14 1906, stolen a silver watch and gold albert, a silver brooch, three fancy quilts, half a dozen tea spoons, half a dozen pillow cases, three linen sheets, three blankets and other articles, valued at 6 10s, the property of Jane Robertson, a widow, living at 58 Stephenson Street. The prosecutrix said the accused and her husband had a furnished room taken from her. She missed some bedclothes and taxed the accused with having taken them and she admitted having done so. Sergt. Hall said the accused went to the police station and gave herself up. From what she said witness went to 58 Stephenson Street and ascertained from the prosecutrix that the accused statements were true. Witness recovered the property which had been pledged for 1 19s 3d. The accused said she had been short of money but she intended to redeem the goods. The Deputy Clerk (Mr A. E. Kidd) said that this was a plea of not guilty and the court would have no alternative to committing the prisoner for trial. Subsequently she pleaded guilty in order that she might be dealt with summarily and expressed her sorrow. The husband came forward and said he was somewhat irregularly employed but he had invariably been in a position to give his wife sufficient for domestic requirements. There were no children. The Chairman: ?Does your wife drink?? The husband: ?Occasionally.? The Chairman, addressing the accused, said the Bench would credit her with the fact that she had given herself up to the police and would deal leniently with her. They would commit her to prison for one month in the second division. Applications by the pawnbrokers for the refunding of the money advanced on the goods were granted in this case.?

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.
