TRANSCRIPT OF STORY IN THE KENTISH GAZETTE, TUESDAY FEBRUARY 26, 1861


MONK'S HORTON

HOUSEBREAKING – At the magistrates' clerk's office, Hythe, a few days ago (before Thomas Denne, Esq., and John Kirkpatrick, Esq.), William Mount was charged with feloniously breaking into the house of William Shrubsole and stealing a purse of money.  William Burton, labourer deposed:  I lodge with Mr. William Shrubsole of Monk's Horton.  I lodge in a separate room, and have an oak chest there, in which I kept a cord purse, containing £11.15s   The last time I saw the money safe in the chest was on the 10th of February, in the afternoon.  I locked the chest then.  On the 14th instant, hearing that Wm. Shrubsole's house had been broken into, I went there, and found my chest had been broken open, and the purse and money stolen.  About last Michaelmas twelve-month the prisoner slept with me for two nights in the same room in which the chest was, but during that time I did not unlock it, or say anything to him about having any money there.  I have not seen the prisoner till to-day, since he slept with me on the occasion I have mentioned. - Mary Shrubsole, wife of William Shrubsole, labourer, deposed:  The last witness lodges with me, and has done so for the last four or five years.  The prisoner is my nephew.  On the 13th inst. He came to my house to dinner.  He was there about two hours.  I left him alone about half an hour.  About three o'clock in the afternoon of the 14th the prisoner came again to my house.  He stayed about half an hour.  I left him for a few minutes, but he did not go upstairs.  Burton's bedroom is upstairs.  We left the house together, and separated at the door.  I locked the house up.  I asked prisoner to go with me but he said he was going on the brook.  I returned about half-past four o'clock the same afternoon, and when I got to my house I saw that a pane of glass had been taken out of the window of one of my sitting rooms.  I left the window fastened when I went out, and besides being fastened it was nailed.  During my absence the window had been opened.  The nail was drawn out, and I found it lying on the window board.  When the window is open, there is sufficient room for a man to get in.  The flower pots, which had been standing inside the window, were thrown down, and the window board was broken.  I looked about downstairs and did not miss anything but a little food.  I went upstairs with George Shrubsole, and saw that the chest in Burton's bedroom was broken open, and the hoe now produced and a fire-shovel were laying on the bed.  The hoe belongs to my husband.  It was not bent when I locked the house up.  It was not bent when I locked the house up.  It was hanging up then in the washhouse.  The back door was open, and also another door, both of which I left shut and fastened.  Some footmarks, close to the window, I covered over with a sack, till the superintendent saw them. - John Hyland, labourer, deposed:  About half-past three in the afternoon of the 14th I saw the prisoner coming up the road towards a place where I was working.  This road leads to the brook.  He stopped about seventeen rods from me for a purpose, and then went back again, in the direction of William Shrubsole's house.  I saw prisoner about four rods from Shrubsole's gate, and then lost sight of him.  Prisoner could not have gone to the brook till a quarter before six that afternoon, at which time I left off work, or I must have seen him. - Caleb Howland, farmer, deposed:  About half-at three in the afternoon of the 14th inst. I was in the road, close to Mr. Smeeth's.  I saw the prisoner standing close by Mr. Edward's gate, opposite his barr, and about two or three paces off the gate leading to William Shrubsole's.  It is about three rods from that gate to Shrubsole's house.  I saw prisoner turn into one of the gates I have mentioned, but I cannot say which.  Both of the gates lead to Shrubsole's house.  If a person wishes to go to Shrubsole's house, he can do so by going through Mr. Edward's gate, which I have spoken of, and then turning to the left, through another gate, into Shrubsole's garden.  Mr. Shrubsole had been in my house about twenty minutes before I saw the prisoner.  I saw no one with him. - Edmund Weston, superintendent, K.C.C., deposed:  On the 16th instant I went to Shrubsole's house at Monk's Horton, and was shown a window from which a pane of glass had been taken out.  I found that the lead had been cut with a knife.  I examined the witness Burton's chest, and found that it had been forced open.  I was shown some footmarks close to the window, under it, which were covered up with a sack.  I examined them.  They were plain, the heel of the left one especially so.  The boots which made the marks must have been nailed thinly, with round-headed cast nails.  There were seven nail marks in the heel mark.  There was the mark of a clip on the left footmark.  The clip had been worn almost plain on the outside;  on the inside the heads of the two clip nails were just visible in the print.  The left heel should apparently have been nailed with eight nails, nearest the heel, two, then three, and another row of three, but the outside one in the last row was missing.  I was shewn some more footprints outside the back door, which were covered up.  I there found a right footmakr, corresponding as to size and kind of nails, to those I saw under the window.  One nail was missing from the heel in the corresponding position, namely, on the outside of the row, furthest from the heel, as that I have described in the heel of the left footmark.  The prisoner was apprehended on this charge and brought to me at the lock-up at Seabrook.  I told him the charge, when he said “He knew nothing about it.  When he left his aunt he went over to Lyminge Brook and Hyam Hill, and down to Standford and Hythe.”  He was searched and the pocket knife I now produce was found on him.  I have since examined his boots.  I yesterday took them to the place where the footmarks I have described were left, and made an impression with the left boot, close to the one under the window which I have described.  The front part of the footmark had become partially obliterated;  the heel mark exactly corresponded.  The footmark close to the door was more obliterated, and I could not make a comparison.  Each of the boots had the peculiarity of the outside nail of the front row in the heel being missing.  The outside of the clip on the prisoner's left boot had been worn almost plain.  On the outside there are two nails that would make the impression I observed in the footmark under the window.  Prisoner had one shilling and a halfpenny in his possession when he was apprehended. - The prisoner:  Didn't I say I went to Hyam Hill and then to Lyminge Brook? - Westone:  You might have said so.  I don't recollect which place you mentioned first. - Committed for trial at the Adjourned Quarter Sessions to be held at Maidstone.



I find the part that says he has previously been convicted in the name of William Burton (the lodger) quite interesting.  I am now searching out his previous conviction if it is listed.
