Description

Name: John Clark Arrested for: Loitering Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 9 March 1905 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-67-John Clark-1 The Shields Daily News for 9 March 1905 reports: ?SUSPICIOUS CONDUCT AT TYNEMOUTH. A POLICEMAN COMPLIMENTED. At North Shields Police Court today, John Clark (54), no fixed abode, was charged with loitering in Tynemouth Terrace back lane for the purpose of committing a felony. PC Telford said that shortly before 11 o?clock yesterday morning he saw the accused going about Front Street in a very suspicious manner. He was examining the shop doors and walked slowly in the direction of Tynemouth Terrace. He went up the back lane and entered two separate back yards. Witness spoke to him and questioned him. He said that he had gone into the yard to get a drink and had got one at the tap. Witness took him back to the yard and there was no tap. The man then said that he had got a drink from the tub. There was a young woman looking down from one of the windows and she said she had seen the defendant looking about the yard in a suspicious manner and on seeing her he had cleared out. Witness, not being satisfied with the man?s story, took him into custody. Prisoner now said that he had been looking for work at Whitley. The magistrates remanded the accused for eight days in order to make inquiries. The chairman complimented the officer for the quiet and careful way in which he had attended to the case?.

Frederick Ellwood, fireman, arrested for breaking and entering

Description

Name: Frederick Ellwood Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Arrested on: 4 August 1914 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-254-Frederick Ellwood The Shields Daily News for 7 August 1914 reports: ?BREAKING AND ENTERING INTO A NORTH SHIELDS STORE. This morning at North Shields, Frederick Ellwood, fireman, Dublin and Francis Rice, labourer, North Shields, were charged with breaking and entering into the store of Messrs Harrison and Robinson, Clive Street, on the night of August 3rd and stealing therefrom a quantity of bacon, ham and other goods. Robert Appleby, 74 Linskill Street, storekeeper, said he locked up the stores, 10 Clive Street, at 12.55 on the Monday night. On opening the place the next morning he found the back door had been forced open and on examining the stock he missed the goods to the amount stated. PC Alexander stated that in company with PC Butler he saw Rice go up the stairs of the stores in a suspicious manner. Witness spoke to Ellwood who said Rice lived in the place. On going to the store, witness found the door had been forced open and he sent Butler for assistance. Inspector McQueen deposed to coming to the assistance of the officers and on going up the stairs of the house next to the store, he knocked at the door of a room occupied by Rice. After a time he got in and found the stuff in the room. He arrested Rice and Ellwood and on charging them the former said ?I took my part in it? and the latter ?I stole the things?. Defendants pleaded guilty and asked the bench to be lenient with them. Rice said he saw Ellwood was in very straightened circumstances and he got the things to help the family. Ellwood said he was out of work at the time. The bench ordered the defendants to pay 20s and costs or in default to go to prison for one month?. 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.

NEWCASTLE MAN GETS SIX MONTHS HARD LABOUR AT NORTH SHIELDS. Robert Jackson (31) a hawker, of 2 Carlisle Street, Newcastle, was charged at North Shields today, with having stolen, on the 1st inst., £5, the property of John Mackie, while in the Golden Fleece Inn, New Quay. John Mackie, a naval stoker, said that at 7.15pm on the 1st inst. he was in the Golden Fleece Inn, New Quay, and had some words with another man. Witness said the man was a German, and he (witness) would give him £5 if he could prove that he was an Englishman, Scotchman or an Irishman. He laid the £5 on the counter and defendant came across and picked it up. John W. Herd said he was in the bar at the time and he told the defendant to give the prosecutor his money back. Defendant said ?There is half a sovereign: that?s all I?ve got?. Defendant denied this. Sergt. Askew stated that he arrested defendant shortly after 7.15 on that night. When charging him the sergeant was suspicious and asked defendant what he had in his mouth. Defendant opened his mouth and took out a sovereign. Jackson then asked if he could speak to the man who was charging him. He was under the influence of drink at the time. When charged the next day, defendant denied having stolen the money. Defendant pleaded not guilty and said the money he put in his mouth was his own. He put it there because it looked suspicious. Chief Constable Huish said that in 1913 defendant was committed for 18 months for assault and robbery and in February this year he was again committed for three months. Defendant asked for a chance and he would join the army, but he was committed to prison for six months with hard labour.?
