TRIAL This morning at the North Shields 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

days William Wadham Tyne Dock William Smith or Morrison shoeblack and William Patton no fixed abode were charged with lodging in a hay pike at Kenners Dene Farm Wadham and Smith were each committed for seven days and Patton was committed for 14 days For a mugshot of William Wadham see www flickr com photos twm news 15870103783 in set 7215762 The Shields Daily Gazette for 7 June 1904 reports Two youths named Joseph Leach 52 Wilson Street and William Morrisey no fixed abode were found by PC Twiddy were found sleeping in a railway carriage on the N E R siding in Garden Lane at 3 15 this morning Relating the facts to the South Shields magistrates the officer said that when he roused Leach that defendant set himself in a fighting attitude while the other sat up on the seat lit a cigarette and refused to leave The magistrates fined them 5s and costs each Contemporary attitudes to rough sleeping can be seen in a report in the Shields Daily Gazette on 5 October 1903 At Jarrow today John Smith Wm Cooper James Bell young men who said they came to the town in search of work were charged with sleeping in Palmers Works last night PC Lowery gave evidence and Supt Fleming said that the county was swarming with fellows like defendants who should be made to seek shelter in the Workhouses Defendants were sent to prison for 7 days The Shields Daily Gazette of 8 October 1903 contains an article entitled Lazy Loafers There are some people who will neither work nor want They are the typical loafers we can see in the streets any day Apparently we have a fairly good stock of them at North Shields It is not because of depression of trade either The other morning no fewer than half a dozen of such individuals were place in the dock on a charge of sleeping out The officer had found them all huddled together in an empty room during the night and they could not give a satisfactory account of themselves When questioned by the magistrates the police officers stated that all the defendants were lazy loafers who had never worked for a considerable time They did nothing but lounge about the streets during the day and then obtained shelter in some empty room or outhouse at night The magistrates marked their sense of the offence by sending them all to prison for a month each each with hard labour A month of hard work will probably do them a vast of good and will enable them to shake off that habitual tired feeling Morrisey was convicted on numerous other occasions The Shields Daily Gazette of 5 November 1902 reported At South Shields today a youth named William Morrisey was charged with stealing on the 4th inst a jacket of the value of 2s 3d the property of James Davison He was fined 10s and costs The Shields Daily Gazette for 2 January 1903 reported Before the Mayor Counc James Grant and other magistrates at So Shields on Wednesday William Morrisey 16 and Arthur Cairns 18 were charged with stealing on Dec 29th a barometer valued at 25s on the way to the Police Station Morrisey remarked A couple of months would just about put me right The Bench fined Morrisey who had previously convicted for larceny 10s and costs and Cairns 5s and costs The Shields Daily News for 10 July 1905 reported At South Shields Police Court today William Morrisey 20 no fixed abode and David McNess 19 Anderson s Lane were charged with breaking and entering the dwelling house of Mary McCalvery on the 8th inst and stealing therein two desks value 10s Prosecutrix said she kept a green grocer s shop in Tyne Street and resided upon the premises At half past twelve on the afternoon of the 8th inst she locked up her house and shop leaving two desks which contained some valuables on a desk bed in the kitchen When she returned to her house at twenty past ten at night she found that someone had been in the house and that the desks had been removed from the desk bed on to the floor near the door A witness deposed to seeing the prisoners loitering near the prosecutrix s shop She afterwards saw Morrisey open the house door with a key and go in She then informed the police PC Ogg said from what he was told he visited the prosecutrix s house and on going inside he found Morrisey in the kitchen He took him into custody He afterwards apprehended McNess The prisoner had nothing to say This was Morrisey s 18th offence and he was committed to prison for 3 months this being McNess s 1st offence he was bound over for three months These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916

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
