I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

Kentish Independent, Saturday 9 January 1858.

STEALING A FIDDLE.

On Monday William Robinson, a private in the Royal Marines, was charged before the Earl of Darnley and the county magistrates, with stealing a violin, valued at 3, the property of Edward Harrigan. The prosecutor was entertaining the company at the "Union Flag," Chatham, on Saturday evening, with a little fiddling, and on leaving the room discovered that his violin had been stolen. The prisoner sold it the same evening at the "Green Man" public house, to a man called “Gipsy Lee," for 5s. The accused, who admitted his guilt, but pleaded drunkenness as an excuse, was commuted for three months’ hard labour.
