Carl Jahn in London in 1884

Post by Karen on Tue 12 Jun 2012 - 20:13

I am not sure if this is Carl Zahn, but with the surname being so similar in spelling and pronunciation, I thought it would be interesting to some:

CARL JAHN was charged, on a warrant, by Inspector Marshall with conspiring with another man to obtain, and obtaining money by fraud in September last, at Sloane-street, Chelsea. - The prisoner was apprehended on the previous day as he left Wandsworth Gaol, after undergoing six months' hard labour for a similar offence as that now charged, his companion being also in prison under sentence of twelve months for a like crime, and it was asked that a remand be granted to bring them up together, the accomplice on an habeas corpus or Secretary of State's order from Clerkenwell. - Mrs. Griffiths said that a day or two prior to the 20th of September last two men (the prisoner and another) took rooms at her house at 7 pounds per week, including board, &c. After dinner they sent for her and explained that they had left an hotel at Sydenham on account of the exorbitant charges of the landlord. They gave their names as Carl Jahn and brother, fur and skin merchants in the City, and they had left a valuable piano at the hotel, but could not get it and their luggage unless they paid their bill, amounting to 18 pounds, and of that they were short 3 pounds at that moment, but if she would advance it they would pay any interest, probably the next day. She had not the 3 pounds, but borrowed it from a neighbour. Her son accompanied them to Charing-cross, but there he lost them, and she had not seen them since. She lent the money on the faith of the representation that they were in business in Bishopsgate-street, and had taken her rooms for a long term. - Inspector Henry Marshall stated that he had made inquiries and found that no such firm as that represented by the prisoners existed. The prisoners had been at this system for some time, and there were many charges against them. They actually had given the Baron H. de Worms as a reference, and he had been inundated with inquiries from different persons, the men "working" in various names. - On the application of the police a remand was granted for the Public Prosecutor to conduct the case, as this case of swindling was now very rife.
