18 August 1880: Exeter: ‘It will be in the memory of most of our readers that at the last quarter sessions at Bideford, about a month since, a man named John Pope, of Newton Tracey, near Barnstaple, was charged before the recorder, Mr J. C. Murch, with having stolen four bullocks the property of Mr T. Trewin, Pillhead, Bideford. The prisoner pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to twelve months’ imprisonment. Immediately after sentence was passed, the Recorder was applied to by the county police to be allowed to take Pope to Torrington to prefer a charge of horse stealing against him. The Recorder would not entertain this application, alleging that immediately a prisoner was sentenced or acquitted he had no further jurisdiction in the matter. The Governor of the Devon County Constabulary was telegraphed to at Exeter, asking permission to remove the prisoner to Torrington, but a negative reply was received. Since that time, however, an order under the Habeas Corpus Act has been applied for, under which the convict Pope was removed. The magistrates present were Mr J. G. Johnson (chairman), the Hon. Mark Rolle, and Mr J. C. Moore Steevens. Pope was charged with stealing a pony on January 22nd, from the Barton, Dowland, the property of Mrs Jane Turner. Mr H. K. Thorne, jun., who appeared to prosecute, said no suspicion fell on the prisoner until the investigation with reference to the charge on which he had been already convicted. William Parsons, farrier, of Wellington, stated that about the 24th January he received a telegram from the prisoner, asking him to come to the Castle hotel, Taunton, where he had a pony for sale. Witness proceeded there, and prisoner showed him the pony in the hotel stable. The pony now in the hands of the police he believed to be the same. Prisoner reserved his defence, and was committed to take his trial at the forthcoming sessions at Exeter.

1892: Alice Jane Johnson, of Frozes Cottages, Cavendish, Suffolk, aged 16, household duties, registered with the National Deposit Friendly Society.

15 June 1894: Royal Corinthian Yacht Club. On Tuesday the Corinthians sailed a very pretty match with five boats, 2½-raters, from Erith round the West Blythe buoy and return, the entries being Messrs W. L. Wylie’s Eva, 1·8; E. Johnson‘s Dorothy, 1·6; W. Yerme’s Undine, 2·5; Frost Smith’s Dona, 1; C. E. Lile’s Harrier, 1; and Linton Hope’s Sorceress, 1. The owner of the latter was very keen on the race, as he had beaten most of the 1-raters afloat easily over the circular courses, and this was the first match in open water in which he had been engaged, but as he totally failed to get a crew together he had to stand out, which was the more unfortunate as the stormy weather of the last few days had moderated, and there was nothing to militate against a boat of the peculiar construction of this phenomenally successful craft. The start took place at 12 o’clock on a moderate breeze from N.N.W., which was so straight down the reach that Eva and Dorothy came to the line on opposite jibs, one carrying spinnaker to port and the other to starboard, and Eva leading a bit. The other three all got over the line before the gun, and with the strong ebb against them and foul wind had some trouble in getting back, losing between 5 and 6 minutes, thus seriously imperilling their chance. Eva had a strong lead passing Gravesend, and ran down to the buoy 12 minutes ahead. Undine 7 minutes in front of Dorothy, who had dropped the 1-raters. They carried the tide all the way, for the wind died right out, and making up along the sand a heavy squall from the northward struck them, accompanied by cold rain, and the wind remaining pretty true, they were enabled to lay up to the Ovens buoy, and then had a hard beat through Gravesend Reach, lay through St Clement’s, and turned home. All gained a little on the leaders, and Dona made such good use of her time that she was well within her allowance of Eva, and took first prize, Eva having second, and Dorothy third.

29 January 1904: ‘Windsor Races. Considering that on Sunday night only one horse had arrived at Windsor, fields on Monday panned out exceptionally well. Indeed, in four of the items down for decision, runners were plentiful enough, with the principal event, the Rays Handicap Hurdle Race, attracted fourteen to the post. An inspection of the course at an early hour revealed the fact that the going was in capital order, and there were never any fear the frost would interfere with sport. The Bucks Maiden Hurdle Race was won by Mr H. C. Johnson‘s Reservist, the Tower Steeplechase by Mr F. Bishop’s Lyndon Green, the Rays Hurdle Handicap by Mr J. G. Clarke’s Mark Time, the Monday Maiden Hurdle Race by Mr J. Barnett’s Much Too Early, the Long Walk Steeplechase by Captain C. Gore-Langton’s Squint II., and the Paddock Steeplechase by Mr J. F. Hallick’s Foxhill. The frost having completely given way, the going for the concluding stage of the meeting on Tuesday proved somewhat holding. The light was considerably better than on the first day, as was also the attendance, but racing can hardly be said to have reached the standard usually witnessed at this enclosure, only thirty-three horses taking part in the half-dozen events down for decision. The Tuesday Hurdle Handicap was won by Mr. F. Cobb’s Chiselhamton, the Athens Steeplechase by Mr J. E. Hallick’s Foxhill, the Dorney Steeplechase by Mr H. R. Randall’s Red Hand, the Borough Steeplechase by Mr A. Hamblin’s Perdicus, the Slough Hurdle Handicap by Mr A. Jones’s Jack McCormick, and the Coveney Steeplechase by Mr A. Gorham’s Little Sister II.’

‘The School Concert: About mid-February of this year the lower hall became the scene of queer happenings. Several furlongs of wood, miles of wire, and acres of canvas gradually took shape as a stage and scenery, with lighting effects complete, the whole reflecting great credit on the industry and ingenuity of those responsible. On February 17th the School Concert, for which this stage was the setting, took place, a matinee performance before a crowded and appreciative audience of parents and friends. In the afternoon all concerned gave a splendid performance and did their very best, but in the evening they did even better: the actors actually surpassed themselves, and surprised even those who knew how well they could do. It seems somewhat invidious to single out individuals for special notice when all were so good, but mention must be made of A. Macdonald’s competent and understanding representation of the “interpreter” in L’Anglais tel Qu’on le Parle, and in the same play H. Kohn made a most convincing (and attractive) young lady, while J. Brooks could scarcely have bettered his impersonation of the inspector. Douglas Henderson, Douglas Gear, Ernest Scott and Norman East also played their parts excellently. Although C. Johnson and K. Judd had been brought in at very short notice to fill vacancies caused by illness, their parts in A. A. Milne’s The Man in the Bowler Hat were adequately played, and the whole was almost professional in its competence. Alan McBain’s performance as John and Sandford as Mary deserve special mention, whilst Judge and Holsman who had lesser parts were excellent. Dennis Rainey found a part in Laying a Ghost entirely suited to his particular genius and he made the most of it. It is a question as to who enjoyed the play most – the audience or Dennis; at all events the gusto with which he played put the success of the play beyond question. R. Nall made a most impeccable professor (as the stage sees him), E. Dickson a suitably phlegmatic policeman, R. Buckley a very charming maid and Hookway a most competent butler. The Indian Club Swinging was extremely good, as was the singing of the choir. The perfect team-work displayed by the choir ensured a successful performance and Dennis Sabin’s work as accompanist was invaluable, as well as his assistance in training the choir. His brilliant playing in the two solos he gave was greatly appreciated. Altogether we have reason to congratulate ourselves on a very interesting concert, reflecting greatly on all those boys who did so much to ensure its success.’
