FREDERICK WORSELDINE, HENRY WORSELDINE, Theft > theft from a specified place, 16th October 1834.

Reference Number: t18341016-96
Offence: Theft > theft from a specified place
Verdict: Not Guilty

1572.  FREDERICK WORSELDINE and   HENRY WORSELDINE were indicted for stealing, on the 21st of August, 3 paintings, value 6l., the goods of   Charles Everingham , in his dwelling-house .

CHARLES EVERINGHAM. I am a picture dealer . I keep the house, No. 3,  Bride-lane , and live there - Henry Worseldine lodged there with his father, and Frederick came to work for his father as a carpenter - I missed these pictures from the first-floor front room - I got the officer, and we asked Frederick about them - I said I had lost some pictures - he denied knowing any thing about them - I gave both the prisoners in charge - I did not speak to Henry about them - I found these pictures at the pawnbroker’s - they are worth 6l. - while I was sitting in the parlour, I heard the rattling of the padlock on the first-floor front room - I went up, and found it was fast.

  RICHARD JENNINGS FORD . I am in the service of Mr. Russell, pawnbroker, Holborn-bars. These pictures were pawned on the 21st of August, by Henry Robert Hall.

  HENRY ROBERT HALL .  Frederick Worseldine asked me to pawn these pictures, and I took them to Mr. Russell - Henry Worseldine was with him - it was at the top of the court, by Mr. Russell’s private door - they were behind a board, wrapped up in a white apron - Henry Worseldine came to my mother, and asked her to let my brother Benjamin go on errand - she said, “No” - he then asked if I might go - Henry gave them to me, but both desired me to pawn them - I think the pawnbroker gave me 12s. for them - I do not think the prisoners gave me any thing for pawning them.

Cross-examined by MR. PHILLIPS. Q. I suppose you never pawned any thing before? A. No - I am going on for ten years old - I clean knives and forks - my brother has pawned things before - I had been in a pawnbroker’s shop before with my mother, but I never pawned any thing myself - I did not count the money - I mentioned a sum to the pawnbroker - I forget what - he asked me whose they were, and I said,“My father’s patterns,” as the prisoners had told me - I kept the money in my hand - the pawnbroker knew where I lived, as he comes down the court after   Jack Ritchie - he knew my father.

  RICHARD JENNINGS FORD re-examined. Q. Did you take them in of this child? A. Yes - I knew his father and mother - his father is a wire-blind painter - I lent 5s. on them - I did not give 12s. - I think he asked me 10s. - I told him to go and ask his father if 5s. would do.

  ROBERT MASON (City police-constable, No. 91). I took the prisoner - I found these duplicates at David Oxenham’s - the prisoner, Frederick, gave information where they were, but I did not hear him.

  CHARLES EVERINGHAM . These are my pictures - I gave two guineas for these two.

Cross-examined. Q. Who did you buy them of? A. I took them in change of a gentleman - I will not tell who - if a gentleman comes to my shop to buy a picture, and says he has one to sell, I take it of him - I do not know the name of the gentleman I had these of - he goes to and fro from abroad - I do not know where he lives - I cannot tell how often he had been to me before - I bought them to sell again - many pictures of this size are worth one hundred guineas - these are by a master whose works are worth five guineas apiece.

JURY. Q. Was the lock broken? A. No - the person who was taken up with the prisoner had made a false key, they went in and out, and the pictures flew out of the room.

NOT GUILTY .

  CHARLES EVERINGHAM . These two paintings were taken from my first-floor front room, the same way as the others - on the 22nd of August, Henry was running up and down stairs - we heard him trying the lock of the door, and Frederick was there at work - there were other lodgers in the house - I missed the paintings altogether, and found them at Mr. Russel’s.

  RICHARD JENNINGS FORD . I am shopman to Mr. Russel. These two paintings were pawned by Hall, on the 22nd of August, for 12s.

  HENRY ROBERT HALL . I took these two paintings to pawn at Mr. Russel’s for 12s. - I gave the silver to Frederick Worseldine, and Henry took the halfpence - they were both together, and both told me to pawn the pictures - each of the prisoners gave me a halfpenny, and a young girl who was with them, when I came out, gave me a penny.

  ROBERT MASON . I found the duplicates of these pictures with the other.

  CHARLES EVERINGHAM . These are both my paintings - I gave 4l. or 4l. 10s. for this one - it is supposed to be by Vandyke.

This picture was brought by the prisoner to pawn - he asked 8l. for it - he said it belonged to   John Baxter - I suspected it was stolen, and told him to go and fetch John Baxter - he went and brought a person who I knew was not John Baxter - I refused to give it up, and they said they would summon me - the officer afterwards came for it.

  ROBERT MASON . I am an officer. I took the prisoner, and went and got the painting.

  CHARLES EVERINGHAM . This is my painting - it cost me upwards of 20l. - a young man painted it for me in my house.

Frederick Worseldine, ticket-of-leave, was favoured with a recommendation to the good offices of Mr. Hortham, who by the bye, he was specially directed to assist in the pre paration of a large quantity of meal. He was allowed fourteen days for the completion of his task, and was dis missed by the magistrate with the remark, ’ that at the ex piration of that time, he would probably see the necessity of keeping himself sober.’
