West Kent Guardian 16 January 1847.

GREENWICH POLICE-COURT. Tuesday.

George Lawrence, an occasional servant at the "Railway Tavern," New Cross, Deptford, was charged with stealing a great coat and a tablecloth, the first-named article being the property of John Bannister, and the latter the property of Mr. Joseph Seaman, landlord of the above-named inn.

John George Taylor, shopman to Mr. Parry, pawnbroker, Flagon-row, Deptford, produced the coat, which was immediately identified by Mr. Bannister, as the lost property, which he had safe in a drawer on the 28th ult. Had seen the prisoner in the room, but did not suspect him.

A young man named Samuel Cates deposed that he purchased two tickets of the prisoner of a coat and table-cloth, for which he gave nine-pence. Met the prisoner in the street. Had never seen him before in his lifetime.

Mr. Joseph Seaman, landlord of the "Railway Tavern," deposed that he had missed an expensive table-cloth since the prisoner had left his service, which he had done at his own request.

Mr. Jeremy said he would remand the prisoner for a week in order that further inquiries might be instituted and the table cloth produced. With respect to buying duplicates in the street from unknown persons it was a very censurable part, and might lead the party into much difficulty.

The prisoner was then remanded for a week.
