Note on Husband: Frederick Hellyar COOPER (2)

The following court case transcript actually refers to a Frederick Hellyar Cooper. We atre not clear if it is the father or the son.

 

From Court Transcripts of the Old Bailey, February 28th 1848.

 

No. 870: JOHN HURTON, was indicted for embezzlement.

Mr Dearsley conducted the Prosecution

John Marvin: Messrs. Rankin and Co. are my solicitors. On 15th Dec.1846, I paid into the firm 2£.8s.7d - I received a receipt - this is it - I cannot say who gave it me.

Charles Rankin Vickerman. I am a partner in the house of Rankin and Vickerman. The prisoner was our clerk in Dec., 1846 - on the receipt of money, it was his duty to enter it in the cash receipt-book, and pay it in to the banker's - the book is here - on the 16th Dec, 1846, here is no entry of 2£.8s.7d, nor since - this receipt is the prisoner's writing.

Cross-examined by Mr. Ballantine. Q. Was the prisoner employed in any other way? A. No - he left our employ before we were aware of this - he had no private work to do for me - he may have bought little things when I was going into the country - we have about fifteen or sixteen clerks always engaged - if a clerk had signed a receipt, when he had not received the money, it would be contrary to rule - if he had received this, he should pay it into the banker's unless it was very late.

John Marvin. I am clerk at Messrs. Hoare's the bankers. On 16th Dec. 1846, 100£ was paid into our house on account of Messrs. Rankin by Mr. Charles Primm - there is no such sum as 2£.8s.7d in my book - I cannot answere to any other day.

GUILTY

 

 

No. 871. JOHN HURTON, was again indicted for embezzlement 6£.16s.6d., also, stealing 8£. 4s.; the monies of Charles Rankin and another, his masters to both of which he pleaded

Guilty. Aged 30. - Recommended to mercy by the Prosecutor - Confined Six Month

 

 

No. 872. FREDERICK DANIEL COOPER, embezzlement

Mr Dearsley conducted the Prosecution

John Begeant. I live at Richmond, in Surrey. On 18th Jan. I paid the prisoner 3£.10s., at Mr Rankin's office - this is the receipt I got.

Cross-examined by Mr. Duncan. Q. You were tenant to some clients of these gentleman? A. Yes - I paid one quarter's rent, at 14£ due at Michaelmas - if I had paid the whole it would have been 7£.

Augustus Bury. On 19th Jan. I paid the prisoner 11£.10s. - I received this memorandum for it.

Cross-examined. Q. You were also tenant to some clients of these gentlemen? A. Yes - the rent of my house is 90£ a year - the prisoner called on me, and received 11£.10s., and I told him I would call on the following Monday, and pay the remainder of the quarter's rent.

Charles Rankin Vickerman. I am one of the firm of Rankin and Vickerman. The prisoner was in our service in Jan. - on his receiving these two sums his duty was to have made a short memorandum in the book, and have handed the money to our cashier - the memorandum has not been made.

Cross-examined: Q. Who was your cashier on 18th Jan.? A. Mr. Walker - he has been our cashier since the beginning of this year - Mr. Hurton preceded him, - I think it was in the early part of Feb. that I was first aware that these two sums had not been accounted for - to the best of my recollection Mr. Johns first informed me of it - I said he had better ascertain to what extent it had gone, and let me know - he afterwards told me the prisoner had made up a story of his having been robbed of this money, and that he had produced a portion of a bank-note, stating that the other part had been forcibly taken from him - I do not recollect that he told me Cooper had directed him to come and tell his master - I am not aware that the prisoner used to make disbursements for the office - it was not his duty - an account for stamps was shown to me - I did not admit it; I expressed surprise, because we generally have a stock of them in the office.

James Walker. I am cashier in the house of Messrs. Rankin and Co. On 18th and 19th Jan. The prisoner did not account to me for 3£.10s. or 11£.10s., nor has he since he said he was unwell, left for a few days, and never returned.

Cross-examined: Q. You have been cashier a short time? A. Yes - I commenced this year - it is the duty of the persons who receive money to make a return of it to me - I am not aware that if they receive a moiety they keep it till they have received the whole - it was not the collector's custom to keep what they had by them for a day or two till the persons paid the remainder - I cannot swear that it was not sometimes done.

Francis Morris (policeman, T 70). I took the prisoner in Feb - I told him it was on a charge of embezzling several sums, to the amount of 15£ of his employers - he said "No., it is not so much as that" - he said he intended to go to the office tomorrow to explain it, and if that was not sufficient to give himself up.

Thomas Johns: I am managing-clerk in the house of Rankin and Co. The prisoner has been clerk there some time - Hurton lodged in my house - he was cashier up to about 1st. Jan - the prisoner was appointed to collect rent of a house eight or nine months ago - he came to me on 1st Feb and said that Hurton's account were very imperfect - I do not recollect that he had come to me before that - I said "Go to him about it" - I believe I was present on 18th Jan - I remember Mr Begeant coming to pay some rent - I think the prisoner asked me if I would take it - I said "No, I shall not take it; it is not part of my duty to take money" - I said he had better take it - Hurton was at home ill then, and I think he was cashier till the time he left, about 27th or 28th Jan. - I do not remember Mr. Burt coming to pay his rent - I remember the prisoner saying about a week after he left the office, that Mr. Burt had come to pay his rent and he had 14£.10s from him- he did not say that on 19th Jan - I did not know for nearly a week that he had received that money - I do not remember the firm being very pressing about Watt's rent - I have nothing to do with the cash payments - I think the prisoner left about the beginning of Feb. - he never wrote to me - he came to my house, I think on the evening of 8th Feb, more like a mad man than a sane man - he said he had received some money, and had been robbed - he produced a portion of a 5£ note - the number had been torn off - he wished me to acquaint the firm - I said, of course if he wished it I must do it - I told him about the beginning of Feb. that the firm desired Oliver's account to be made up - I was directed to make out the bill of costs - I told Walker I was going to make out the bill, and the prisoner came to me with a bit of paper in his hand, and said there was something wrong about it with Hurton - I told him to go to him about it.

(Mr. Dearsley here withdrew from the prosecution.) NOT GUILTY

6Pauline Winch, "Email to Graham Hoadly form Pauline Winch".
Text From Source: It was Natalie Lerner who put her in touch with me. Do you know Natalie? She lives in Lewes, Sussex and is descended from Ann Wood's & Benjamin Winch's son Richard who married Mary Wilson Graham Evett. She is descended via Henry Winch. But she has traced the Winch tree back another two generations. According to her research:- Benjamin Winch b. 1762 or 1763 (whom you have) - his father was Richard b.1730 in Ticehurst - d.October 28th. 1796 in Hawkhurst - he married Jan 22nd. 1756 in Hawkhurst Ann Campany b. August 7th.1726 - d.Jan 28th. 1799. This Richard Winch was the youngest son of Richard Winch of Ticehurst & Mary Valena - 2nd. wife. I have no dates for the earlier Richard Winch - but Natalie may have by now.
