Harriet Sutton, a well dressed woman, surrendered to her bail and pleaded guilty to having contracted a bigamous marriage with Frederick William Thrush, at Rainford. – Mr. T. Swft appeared for the Crown, and Mr. Rigby Swift addressed the court on behalf of the prisoner.  He said she was first married in 1891, and about four months afterwards her husband began to treat her with persistent cruelty, which lasted all the time they lived together.  For four years after she left him she heard nothing of him, and this she told the second husband. – His Lordship thought there were exceptional circumstances in the case, and that he should be justified in ordering the prisoner to be bound over to appear if called upon.

Some research notes

Because I find it difficult to get rid of old letters and notebooks, I tend to have a lot of them in the house.  As there is this blog now, I thought that i’d share some of my notes on here, not all of them are related to me, some I jotted down as I thought they might be at the time I wrote them.

Police records are fascinating to look at.  A 3rd great uncle, called Edward Chapman, born in Lancaster, Lancashire, England in 1864 was in the police force.  When I visited the Lancashire records office one time some years ago, I thought i’d take a look to see what the records are like.

Constable Edward Chapman was appointed on the 22nd August 1894 of 10 Kenmure Place, Preston.

He was aged 24, and he was 5 feet 10 inches tall.

On the 18th November 1919 his pension was secured, and he retired on a pension of £164 13 shillings 4d per year on the 21st September 1920.
