Newspaper Look-up, John Hathaway 1890s
« on: Friday 20 November 20 20:04 GMT (UK) »
Could anyone help me with this please?

John Hathaway born 1863 in Stow on the Wold was imprisoned for six months in 1892 after stealing from his brother in law in Birmingham. He was sentenced, I think at Warwick assizes.

I know he committed a similar petty theft a couple of years later, something involving some bottles of drink. This was again in the Aston area. I did have newspaper articles but I've lost them and for the life of me cannot re-find them on FindMyPast or elsewhere online. Driving me mad!

Is anyone more technically gifted than me able to find anything PLEASE?

Steve

Was his brother in law Albert Rose?

So are you looking for a later or earlier one than the one I linked?

The one I linked says he was sentenced to 6 mths hard labour

On the British Newspaper Archives site there is a snippet from the Birmingham Daily Post of 13 June 1892 about a would-be suicide, John Hathaway 28, wanted for theft of £7.14.6d and several life insurances

Another snippet from BNA.
Wilts and Glos Standard. 1 July 1893.
John Hathaway 28 charged with stealing silver watch and chain, and other articles, from William Toomey of Swindon.
Same paper, 6 June 1891.
John Hathaway, CWB(GWR) employee, charged with stealing briar pipe, property of Thomas Hall, landlord.

There are a number of references in the name of John Hathaway, variously of Stow, Coln St Aldwyns, Great Rissington  and Maugersbury, some of which might relate to your man. Did he have a brother David?
