Sergeant Dudman

Post by Karen on Sat 18 Aug 2012 - 0:23

Sergeant Dudman is mentioned on page 123 of the book, "Jack the Ripper: An Encyclopedia."


At Greenwich, today, George Appleyard, proprietor of a private hotel close to Greenwich Park, was summoned by Inspector Dudman for permitting his house to be used as a brothel. - Mr. Mead appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. W.E. Ruddle defended. - The principal evidence was that of two women of ill-fame, who deposed to using the house for an improper purpose, and also that defendant charged 2s. for a bottle of Scotch ale. - Mr. Ruddle made an earnest appeal in the defendant's behalf, saying he was a most respectable man, who did his best to prevent his house being used for immoral purposes. The women went to the house with gentlemen, and he did not know they were prostitutes, nor could he be expected to ask to see their marriage certificates. Defendant held a beer-house licence, but had no bar, and his house was used only for teas and other refreshments, and as a private hotel. - Defendant and his wife were sworn, and declared they did their best to conduct the house respectably. The ale cost 7s. 6d. a dozen bottles, and to charge 2s. for a bottle when it was served in a private sitting-room was not out of the way. - Mr. Balguy considered the prosecution proved, and fined defendant 10 pounds, ordering his licence to be forfeited.
