Percy John Proctor, draper's assistant, arrested for false pretences

Description

Name: Percy J. Proctor Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 2 March 1906 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-85-Percy J Proctor The Shields Daily News for 2 March 1906 reports: "A FRAUDULENT LODGER AT NORTH SHIELDS At North Shields Police Court today, Percy John Proctor (16), draper's assistant, Castle Terrace, Richmond, was charged on a warrant with having, between the 24th and 26th Feb., obtained by means of false pretences, from Cecilia Miller, food of the value of 5s, with intent to defraud. The prosecutrix, who resides at 18 Addison Street, said that between one and two o'clock on the 25th ult. the prisoner and another young man came to her house and asked to be taken in as lodgers. Accused said he was a printer and his companion represented himself as an engineman employed at Mr Moore's in Tyne Street. They arranged to pay her 14s a week and she took them in. On Monday morning they went out to commence work and returned at noon. The following morning breakfast was prepared for them and she went to call them, and found that the accused's companion had disappeared whereupon she informed the police. Arthur Smith, foreman with Mr Moore, said the accused had never been in the employment of Mr Moore. Detective Radcliffe said that on the 27th ult. he arrested the prisoner at a house in West Percy Street and charged him with the offence. He made no reply. Formally charged, the accused pleaded guilty and had nothing to say. The father of the accused, a respectable looking man, said his son left home a fortnight ago and he traced him to North Shields, where he saw him in the company of another boy. He tried to persuade him to go home but with no avail. Col. Kidd (magistrates' clerk): What do you propose should be done with him. The Father: I am willing that he should go to sea or join the army, but he declines to go home so I cannot say what should be done in the meantime. The Chairman asked the accused if he would go home and he replied in the negative. He was committed to prison for a month in the second division. The Chairman remarked that this mean form of cheating had become too common in the town and the defendant had made his case worse by showing no signs of repentance and being so stubborn. In Gaol he would be able to reflect upon his position". 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.

Thomas Newham

Description

Name: Thomas Newham Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 2 May 1905 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-71-Thomas Newham The Shields Daily News for 9 May 1905 reports: "At North Shields Police Court to-day, Thomas Newham (48), clerk, 44 Adelaide Street, South Shields, was charged with having obtained, by false pretences, 1 4s, the moneys of Messrs Wawn and Son, fruiterers and potato dealers, South Shields on the 23rd February 1903. Mr T.V. Mabane prosecuted and Mr A. Whitehorn defended. Accused pleaded guilty. Prosecutor said that up to February of 1903 the accused was in his employ as a clerk. He gave him notice but he pleaded to be permitted to remain in his situation. Witness consented, but on the 21st February he discharged him, giving him his wages. Subsequently he ascertained that he had appropriated 24s which he had collected from a customer, and he (witness) had a warrant issued for his arrest. Decective Sergt. Scougal having given evidence as to charging the accused and receiving a confession of guilt, Mr Whitehorn addressed the Bench in mitigation of punishment and suggested that as the prosecutor did not press the charge and the prisoner was deeply sorry, the magistrates might deal with the case under the First Offenders Act and bind him over to come up for judgement if called upon. His sister, whose husband had a little property in the town, was prepared to stand bond for him. She offered to pay Mr Wawn the 24s out of her own pocket shortly after the warrant was issued, but the prosecutor said it was too late, and that the law would have to take its course. The magistrates bound the accused over in 5 and a surety of 5 to come up for judgement if called upon."

Robert Jack

Description

Name: Robert Jack Arrested for: False Pretences Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 12 January 1905 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-63-Robert Jack The Shields Daily News for 12 January 1905 reports: "At the North Shields Police Court today, Robert Jacks, ships' steward, belonging to Greenock, was charged with obtaining 10s by false pretences, from Charles Swain, tailor and clothier, Bedford Street. The prosecutor said that at a quarter to 12 on the 6th inst., the prisoner came to his shop and was measured for a suit of clothes. He stated that he was going to Glasgow to get married, and also said that he was going to be paid off from the steamer Brighton on the following morning. Before leaving the shop he obtained a loan of 10s, promising to call next day to have the coat and waistcoat tried on and to repay the loan. On Monday morning , the 9th inst., witness made inquiries at the shipping office regarding the steamer Brighton and found that it had been paid off on the 31st ult. In answer to the magistrates witness said that he had known the prisoner since last summer, having met him on the Midnight Sun, with which vessel he had some business dealings. Supt. Robt. Walton of the Board of Trade, stated that the Brighton was paid off on the 31st ult. and that the prisoner then received all the money that was due to him. Detective Sergt. Scougal said he arrested the prisoner on a warrant on board the steamer Pocklington at Tyne Dock on the 11th inst. and charged him. The accused replied "I had no intention of defrauding. If he had waited until the weekend, I would have paid". The accused stated that after ordering the suit he asked Mr Swain for the loan of a few shillings, and he lent him ten. One of the officers of the Brighton had 4 belonging to him and he intended to get that money on the following day and repay Mr Swain. He was unable to obtain it, however. The Mayor warned the prisoner to be very careful in his statement in future and fined him 10s and costs or fourteen days".

Prosecutrix stated that defendant went to her house and asked if he could have lodgings. He told her his boat, the steamer Jubilee, was in the Albert Edward Dock, and he would be paid off with 68 in a day or two. She supplied him with food up to the value of 6s and he slept in the house for one night. Her son-in-law made inquiries and found that there was no such vessel as the Jubilee in Albert Edward Dock. She spoke to defendant about it and he asked her if he brought some of his shipmates would she believe him. She replied that she would and he went off then and she never saw him afterwards. Corroborative evidence was given and defendant, who had been convicted three times this year for a similar offence, was sent to gaol for two months with hard labour".

At North Shields Police Court today, Charles Nixon (30), bookmaker's clerk, South Shields, was charged with attempting to obtain 4s by false pretences from a shopkeeper on Thursday. The prosecutor stated that the accused told him that he had been fined 10 and wanted to get his money back. He asked witness for 4s to put on a horse which had won a race that day and stated that he was working for a big firm of bookmakers and would send the money up, as though it had been put on before the race. The winnings would be 50, which he offered to divide with witness. He, however, declined to have anything to do with him. The accused said he did not see how he could be guilty of false pretences in simply asking for money to put on a horse. He was committed for 7 days".

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.

ACCUSED COMMITTED FOR TRIAL. Reginald Ashley Staines (30), chief steward, of 23 Milton Terrace, was brought up on remand at North Shields today, charged with having obtained by false pretences on the 22nd Nov. from Joseph Randell, the sum of 15 and on the 23rd ult. a further sum of 7 from Joseph Randell and Ed. Perris and on the same date in a like manner, the sum of 5 from William Manson Bews, with intent to cheat and defraud. Mr Frankham of Newcastle defended. Joseph Randell of 40 Drummond Terrace stated that in the early part of November last defendant came to his shop and made reference to some previous groceries and wanted to open an account. On the 22nd October he ordered goods to be sent on board his ship. On the 22nd Nov. he wanted to cash a cheque for 15. He said he had got married and wanted to go to Liverpool and witness gave him the 15. Next day he again came to the shop and asked witness to cash another cheque for 7 and he said he would send his account from Liverpool in settlement for some goods. Witness cashed the cheque. He presented the cheques on the 22nd and 23rd Nov. and they were returned on the 24th and 25th. Mr Frankham: Defendant has had other dealings with you for groceries and provision? ? Yes. Mr Frankham: Have you cashed other cheques for him? One, for 10, which was honoured. Mr Frankham: If he had asked for the loan of a certain sum, would you have give him it? ? No. Mr Frankham: He never attempted to conceal where he was going to? ? No. Mr Frankham: You made no effort to get in touch with him? ? Yes. Mr Perris went to his mother?s and could not get his address. William Manson Bews, a tailor residing in Linskill Terrace, said that on the 23rd October the defendant came to his shop and ordered a frock suit, a jack suit, a double-breasted suit and a cap. He was dressed in a naval uniform and said the things had to be delivered to the Northumberland Arms. On the 22nd November he again came to the shop and asked for his account. He told witness he was a little short of cash. Witness gave him 5 and the defendant made out a cheque for 22 12s, in payment of the clothes and the money. The cheque was presented at Farrow?s Bank, Newcastle on the 24th and returned on the 26th. Witness still had all the clothes with the exception of the uniform. George Graham Campbell of Farrow?s Bank said that no the 24th November the cheque produced, for 15, was presented and returned, marked ?N.S.?. On that date the defendant only had 3 19s 6d in the bank. On the 25th November cheques for 7 and 22 12s were presented but the defendant only had a balance of 1 19s 6d then. Detective-Sergeant Radcliffe stated that from certain information received he went to Brighton, on the 3rd inst. and took the defendant into custody from the Brighton police. He was brought to North Shields and when questioned replied ?The only thing I can say is, the cheque must not have been met?. When charged later he made no reply. The defendant pleaded not guilty. Mr Frankham said the defendant had not the slightest intent to rob anybody of money. He had a banking account and being newly married and unwell, had gone away and given these cheques. He had about 16 on board the ship and the officers were owing him about 30. The defendant gave a cheque for 1 on the 13th November as a donation to the YMCA. He had not tried to cover up any tracks and the officers on board HMS Satellite knew where he was. The defendant, in giving evidence on his own behalf, said he was chief steward on HM Yacht Medusa II. The ship came into port on the 19th November and he had leave granted because he had been ill and he was going to be married. After the marriage he went to Liverpool and was there two days and he then went to London and Brighton. He sent his medical certificate to HMS Satellite. When he got the money from Mr Randell and Mr Bews he understood he had sufficient money in the bank to meet the cheques. Money was owing to him on board the ship but he could not say how much. He had no intention of defrauding the people. The defendant was committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions?. On 6 January 1916 at Northumberland Quarter Sessions Reginald Staines was acquitted on a charge of obtaining money by false pretences from tradesmen at North Shields.
