Police Court before Captain J Sanderson and Mr G H Stansfield Luke Swailes 60 general dealer and Wm Townsley a young man both of Gateshead were charged with stealing on the 27th of November 1905 from Welbury House Preston Park three bracelets a neck chain locket ring and brooch value 20 the property of Ethel Annie Freeth Swailes was further charged with receiving from Wm Townsley a gold expansion bracelet and watch value 6 the property of Alfred John Freeth well knowing the same to have been stolen Mr G W Chapman represented Swailes Ethel Annie Freeth said that on Sunday November 26th she left her watch and bracelet in a drawer in the bedroom together with the other articles mentioned in the charge On the afternoon of the next day she missed them and gave information to the police Elizabeth Irvin dressmaker 84 Grey Street said that in November last she was employed at the Elms Preston Park which was next door to Freeth s house On the afternoon of the 27th she saw a man prowling about in front of the sitting room window and took good notice of him On January 30th she identified him among six men at Gateshead Police Station and now identified him as the prisoner Townsley Edward Surtees Chisholm manager of the New Gateshead Inn North Street Gateshead stated that he had known the prisoner Swailes for several years He was a respectable general dealer He came to witness s house one Tuesday in November or December and offered him the watch bracelet for 2 The witness bought it for that sum which he thought was a fair price Detective Radcliffe said he was present at the Gateshead Police Station when Miss Irvin identified Townsley The prisoner said I can soon get out of that I was in hospital at the time On Friday 21st he arrested Swailes on a warrant When witness read the warrant over to him he said He Townsley must be a scoundrel This is some more he has put on to me Later he said I have only to say that Townsley is a thorough scoundrel I am as innocent as a child unborn Witness showed him the watch bracelet and told him that that was what he was charged with receiving He replied I have never seen it before In the cell he said I think the best thing in a case of this kind is to plead guilty Chisholm knew as well as I did that I got it from Townsley He asked me if it was straight and I told him he would not get it for 2 if it had been Neither of the prisoners when charged this morning had anything to say The prisoner Swailes gave evidence on his own behalf He said that he was 50 years of age and a general dealer and lived at 4 Towns Street New Gateshead About Christmas the accused Townsley came to him Previous to that he did not know the man Townsley asked him if he would buy a bracelet as he wanted the money to go to Scotland Asked where he had got it he said he found it sometime since at Jesmond on a seat He asked 2 for it and witness telling him that all the money he had upon him was 35s Townsley at once handed it over for that price At Chisholm s bar next day witness offered it for sale to him and he bought it for 2 Witness thought that would be about the value of the article and did not for one moment imagine it had been stolen From what he was however told later he has very reason to think that the bracelet had been stolen Afterwards from time to time witness advanced Townsley s mother small sums of money Eventually he stopped lending her money whereupon she made a charge against him to the Gateshead Police He was tried on that charge at Durham Assizes and acquitted When charged last Friday week with the offence now being dealt with he did deny that he bought the bracelet from Townsley He did this because he was afraid of getting Chisholm into trouble Later he admitted that he had sold it Cross examined by the Chief Constable Mr J H Huish Swailes admitted that when arrested he did not know that the bracelet was in the hands of the police The prisoner Townsley reserved his defence Both prisoners were committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions Townsley who was in charge of warders was conveyed to Newcastle Gaol to await trial Swailes was admitted to bail in his own recognisances of 50 and one surety of 50 Townsley is at present undergoing a sentence of three years penal servitude for burglary at Hedgeley Heath and was brought before the magistrates on a Home Office order The Shields Daily News for 19 October 1906 reports William Townsley 22 labourer pleaded guilty to having stolen 20 worth of jewellery at Tynemouth on Nov 27 1905 the property of Miss Ethel Annie Freeth of Preston Park North Shields Luke Swailes 59 dealer pleaded not guilty to a charge of having received the jewellery well knowing it to have been stolen Mr Griffith Jones prosecuted and Mr Mundahl defended the accused Swailes The jury found Swailes guilty and he was sentenced to three months hard labour Townsley who is currently undergoing a sentence of three years penal servitude at Stafford Prison was sentenced to a similar term to run concurrently with the sentence he is now serving These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court

for 10 February 1905 reports SERIOUS CHARGES AGAINST A NORTH SHIELDS YOUTH COLLECTING FOR A BOGUS CRICKET CLUB THREE MONTHS IMPRISONMENT At North Shields Police Court today Joseph Tomblin 17 was charged with having obtained by means of false pretences 2s 6d from Henry Dillon Irvin on the 1st inst with intent to cheat and defraud Prosecutor who resides at 9 Prudhoe Terrace Tynemouth said that on the 1st inst the prisoner came to his house and at his request was turned away Subsequently the accused met him in the street and asked him for a subscription towards the Tynemouth Boys Cricket Club He asked him to accompany him to his rooms Accused did so and there he put certain questions to him Prisoner produced a subscription list and said the club had made arrangements with the North Shields Athletic Association Football Club for the rental of their field On this representation he gave him 2s 6d and finding afterwards from inquiries that his statements were incorrect he applied for a warrant for his arrest He produced the list which bore his and several other names Septimus Crowell 39 Jackson Street who is secretary of the North Shields Athletic Club said he had never heard of such as club as the Tynemouth Boys Cricket Club Detective Sergt Scougal said he arrested the accused in Front Street Tynemouth on the night of the 3rd inst and charged him He made no reply He took him to the Tynemouth Divisional Police Station and upon searching him he found in his possession several lists produced In conversation the accused said he had collected the money shewn on the lists upon his own account There was no such club as the Tynemouth Boys Cricket Club An organization bearing this name did exist about five years ago but he was not a member of it On one of the lists appeared the name of A B Brown who was supposed to be the captain of the club Witness asked him who this person was and he replied that he did not know Some of the lists were dated three or four years back During that period the accused had been collecting money for a football club at one part of the year and for a cricket club at another Accused was formally charged He pleaded guilty and had nothing to say Prisoner was then charged with having obtained by means of false pretences 9d from Henry Jarvis Ward in the latter part of January Prosecutor who lives at No Albury Park Road said the accused came to his house in the latter part of January and told him that arrangements had been made for the renting of a field for the club and that all the money had been subscribed with the exception of 2s 6d Accused had been coming to him twice a year for at least for years collecting subscriptions for a football and a cricket club Detective Sergt Scougal proved the arrest and prisoner pleaded guilty A third charge was preferred against the accused of having obtained by similar means 5s from Coun Geo Stephenson steam trawler owner No 1 Park Crescent Accused said he only got 2s 6d The father of the accused was asked by the magistrates if he could account for his son s misconduct He blamed a certain religious body in Tynemouth the officials of which sent boys to collect subscriptions They did not give them officially signed papers or collecting books and this created a great temptation The Chairman Capt J Bolt said it was a very bad case The Bench however had decided to deal leniently with the accused He would have to go to prison in the second division for one month on each charge three months in all The Shields Daily News for 1 September 1905 reports ASSAULTS AT NORTH SHIELDS YOUNG MAN FINED At the North Shields Police Court today Joseph Tombling a young man residing at 25 Edith Street Spital Dene was summoned for having assaulted Mrs Jane Mitchell who resides in the same thoroughfare and her daughter Jane Mitchell on the 25th ult Mr A Whitehorn who appeared on behalf of the complainants said they were mother and daughter They resided at 47 Edith Street Spital Dene whilst the defendant lived at No 25 in the same street On Thursday afternoon last Mrs Mitchell was wheeling a pram past the defendant s mother s door when a brother of the defendant jeered at her She took no notice of him but next day seeing him in the back lane she remonstrated with him about jeering at her At this time the defendant came upon the scene and rolling up his sleeves offered to fight anyone in Mitchell s house Mrs Mitchell advised him to go away and to frighten him said she would throw some water over him She put the pail underneath the tap and let the water run but before it was half full the defendant ran into the yard took hold of her by the throat and knocked her head against the wall Mr Whitehorn described the attack as a most outrageous one and asked the Bench to deal severely with the defendant The daughter of Mrs Mitchell called the defendant a coward for striking a woman whereupon the defendant struck her a violent blow on the side of the face Complainants bore out this testimony Defendant alleged that Mrs and Miss Mitchell made a practice of reminding him of the time he was in gaol and telling him he would be there again He denied assaulting either of the complainants and called his brother who gave evidence on his behalf A fine of 5s and costs was imposed in each case with the alternative of 14 days imprisonment These images

Court before Captain J Sanderson and Mr G H Stansfield Luke Swailes 60 general dealer and Wm Townsley a young man both of Gateshead were charged with stealing on the 27th of November 1905 from Welbury House Preston Park three bracelets a neck chain locket ring and brooch value 20 the property of Ethel Annie Freeth Swailes was further charged with receiving from Wm Townsley a gold expansion bracelet and watch value 6 the property of Alfred John Freeth well knowing the same to have been stolen Mr G W Chapman represented Swailes Ethel Annie Freeth said that on Sunday November 26th she left her watch and bracelet in a drawer in the bedroom together with the other articles mentioned in the charge On the afternoon of the next day she missed them and gave information to the police Elizabeth Irvin dressmaker 84 Grey Street said that in November last she was employed at the Elms Preston Park which was next door to Freeth s house On the afternoon of the 27th she saw a man prowling about in front of the sitting room window and took good notice of him On January 30th she identified him among six men at Gateshead Police Station and now identified him as the prisoner Townsley Edward Surtees Chisholm manager of the New Gateshead Inn North Street Gateshead stated that he had known the prisoner Swailes for several years He was a respectable general dealer He came to witness s house one Tuesday in November or December and offered him the watch bracelet for 2 The witness bought it for that sum which he thought was a fair price Detective Radcliffe said he was present at the Gateshead Police Station when Miss Irvin identified Townsley The prisoner said I can soon get out of that I was in hospital at the time On Friday 21st he arrested Swailes on a warrant When witness read the warrant over to him he said He Townsley must be a scoundrel This is some more he has put on to me Later he said I have only to say that Townsley is a thorough scoundrel I am as innocent as a child unborn Witness showed him the watch bracelet and told him that that was what he was charged with receiving He replied I have never seen it before In the cell he said I think the best thing in a case of this kind is to plead guilty Chisholm knew as well as I did that I got it from Townsley He asked me if it was straight and I told him he would not get it for 2 if it had been Neither of the prisoners when charged this morning had anything to say The prisoner Swailes gave evidence on his own behalf He said that he was 50 years of age and a general dealer and lived at 4 Towns Street New Gateshead About Christmas the accused Townsley came to him Previous to that he did not know the man Townsley asked him if he would buy a bracelet as he wanted the money to go to Scotland Asked where he had got it he said he found it sometime since at Jesmond on a seat He asked 2 for it and witness telling him that all the money he had upon him was 35s Townsley at once handed it over for that price At Chisholm s bar next day witness offered it for sale to him and he bought it for 2 Witness thought that would be about the value of the article and did not for one moment imagine it had been stolen From what he was however told later he has very reason to think that the bracelet had been stolen Afterwards from time to time witness advanced Townsley s mother small sums of money Eventually he stopped lending her money whereupon she made a charge against him to the Gateshead Police He was tried on that charge at Durham Assizes and acquitted When charged last Friday week with the offence now being dealt with he did deny that he bought the bracelet from Townsley He did this because he was afraid of getting Chisholm into trouble Later he admitted that he had sold it Cross examined by the Chief Constable Mr J H Huish Swailes admitted that when arrested he did not know that the bracelet was in the hands of the police The prisoner Townsley reserved his defence Both prisoners were committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions Townsley who was in charge of warders was conveyed to Newcastle Gaol to await trial Swailes was admitted to bail in his own recognisances of 50 and one surety of 50 Townsley is at present undergoing a sentence of three years penal servitude for burglary at Hedgeley Heath and was brought before the magistrates on a Home Office order The Shields Daily
