Police Constable 63L

Post by Karen on Thu 19 Jan 2012 - 1:16

An individual had asked earlier this week for information on P.C. 63L, Lambeth Division, and I found the following about Constable Morten/Morton. Apparently, it is rumored that P.C. 63L witnessed what was going on in Miller's Court and beat a hasty retreat.

CHARGE AGAINST A BAPTIST MINISTER.

On Wednesday, Mary Ann Newton, a young woman who had been for nearly five years in the service of Mrs. Sophia Levy, an aged lady, residing at Stockwell, and who had been in custody for a week on a charge of robbing her mistress of two ten and six five pound notes of the Bank of England, and a quantity of jewellery of the value of 100 pounds, was brought up on remand, at the Lambeth police-court, for final examination.
When the prisoner was placed at the bar, Serjeant O'Dell, 18L, addressing the magistrate, said that since the former examination it had been ascertained, from the admission of the prisoner and other information, that she had a confederate in the robbery, and that that confederate was the Rev. Mr. Wycherley, the minister of a baptist chapel in the Clapham-road, where the prisoner was a constant attendant. On making the necessary inquiries on the subject he (Serjeant O'Dell) and Constable Morten, 63L, found that the prisoner and the Reverend Mr. Wycherley were on extremely friendly terms, that the former was in the constant habit of visiting the latter at his lodgings and taking tea there, and that the rev. gentleman had also been a constant visitor to the prisoner at her mistress's house, without that lady's knowledge. They further found that he used to dine there sumptuously and drink the lady's wine, and that in fact he had himself acknowledged to having changed one of the stolen notes at a shop in the Borough; and conceiving the information they had received was abundant to implicate him with the robbery, they made up their minds to take him into custody. On going to his residence for that purpose, Morton and himself found that the rev. gentleman had absconded on the night of Monday week. Every effort had since been made to trace him, but they had not up to the present time discovered him.
The prisoner, after the usual caution, was asked if she wished to offer anything in her defence, and replied, "Nothing." She was fully committed for trial.
