He was a carpenter by trade. He married Alice Cox and they had 9 children. 

When he was young he was arrested for receiving stolen property. A horse. He was sentenced to the Gaul, he plead guilty on   3 Dec 1886 and received a 18 month sentence getting out on 13 Jun 1887.







As I continued my research I found several other convictions.

He was well-known by the police 

I am not sure how his wife and all those children survived while he was in the Goal serving sentences. It could not of been very easy for them.  I did not find his grave or any for his family.

I do hope his children and wife didn't suffer too much do to his bad decisions. We may never know.
