The newspaper article below pertains to my third great grandfather, Luke Berry:-
THE ROTHERHAM AND SHEFFIELD INDEPENDENT – TUESDAY OCTOBER 7 1873 – STEALING A COAT
James Greenwood, a tramp from Leeds, was charged with stealing a coat, belonging to Mr. Luke Berry, of the Rotherham Waterworks. It appeared that on the 30th Sept., at about eleven o’clock in the forenoon, Mr. Berry’s daughter saw the prisoner coming from her father’s house, which adjoins the waterworks. She missed a coat which had been hanging up in the lobby of the house, and gave information to the police. The prisoner was shortly afterwards arrested by Police-constable Herbert, and he made some false statements as to his place of abode in Leeds. – He was now sent for trial at the sessions.
