Prisoner X16663 - Arthur William Everett, Cellar man Cause of Insanity – Drink. Transferred from St Albans Prison. Arthur William Everett was born on the 9th January 1857 in St Ives Huntingdonshire to Arthur William and Mary Ann Everett, he was baptized at St Mary the Great in Cambridge aged 4 on the 21 April 1861 the year after the death of his father. Arthur lived with his mother, sister and step siblings in Falcon Yard Cambridge, this was one of the yards off Petty Cury which is where the Lion Yard is today. Falcon Yard would have housed up to 300 people and in 1903, on the order of the Medical Officer of Health, it was declared as one of the worst slums in Cambridge and was demolished. In the 1871 census aged just 14 Arthur was listed as working as an errand boy and in 1881 he was working as a Grocers Warehouseman. We do not know what Arthur was doing between 1881 and 1887 but he must have been doing alright for himself as he now owns a property, 17 Albert Street. It was reported in the Cambridge Independent PressΒ on the 9th April 1887 that on the 25th March his lodger Robert Grant had stolen a pipe, a cigar holder, case and a wood pipe to the value of 5 shillings from Arthur. The articles were recovered and Robert was sentenced to 14 days’ imprisonment with hard labour. Over the next few months Arthur must have been getting ill as on the 24th September the Cambridge Independent Press reported that Arthur had been charged with assaulting his then Lodger Painter Robert Forgmant. After coming home drunk one night Robert was asked to leave, after he refused Arthur threatened to murder him, Arthur then abused him and threw and blundered him about. When the police arrived, it was found both parties were drunk and Arthur was fined 20 shillings and costs. It was less than two weeks later that he was back in court. The Cambridge Chronicle and Journal reported that on the 17th September 1887 Arthur was charged with causing a nuisance at the back of Brandon Place, for this he was remanded in custody until the following Tuesday. Less than two weeks later he was in court again this time for stealing Whisky, while in custody he smashed up his cell breaking several panes of glass and pulling down the iron work from the window frame, he scratched paint off the walls and pulled up the wooden frame used as a pillow rest. It was for this offence he was convicted and ordered to pay 10 shillings damages, a 10 shilling fine and 4 shillings 1 pennie costs. He was sentenced to one mont £ŠeΜ)₯΅ΑΙ₯Ν½Ή΅•ΉΠέ₯Ρ ‘…ɐ±…‰½ΥΘΈ=ΈΡ‘”€ΔέΡ =Ρ½‰•Θ°„©ΥΙ䁙½ΥΉ‘₯΄(ΔΠ)½ΈΡ‘”‰ΥΡΡ½Έ₯ΝΝΥ”€Τΰ)ΥΉ”€ΘΐΔ܁π(ΐΔΠΨΘ€ΰΜΠΘΨԁπ)ΡΌ‰”₯ΉΝ…Ή”…Ή‘”έ…́ΡΙ…ΉΝ™•ΙΙ•ΡΌΡ‘”Q‘Ι•” ½ΥΉΡ₯•ΜΝε±Υ΄½Έ)Ρ‘”€ΘαΡ =Ρ½‰•Θ€ΔΰΰάΈ)!₯́΅•‘₯…°½Ή‘₯Ρ₯½Έέ…́‘•ΝΙ₯‰•…́5…Ή₯„…ΥΝ•Ρ‘ɽ՝ )‘Ι₯Ή¬°‘”έ…́•α₯Ρ…‰±”°Ρ…±­…Ρ₯Ω”…ΉΥΝ••αΡΙ…Ω……ΉΠ±…ΉΥ…”°‘”)‘…₯Ή½ΉΝ₯ΝΡ•ΉΠ…ΉΩ•Ι䁕ᅱѕ₯‘•…́½˜‘₯΅Ν•±˜Έ!”‘…„•Ή•Ι…°)ΡΙ•΅½Θ½˜Ρ‘”΅Υ͍±•Μ½˜•αΑΙ•ΝΝ₯½Έ…Ή‘•Ν₯Ρ…Ρ₯½Έ₯Έ‘₯́ΝΑ•• Έ!”)‘₯Ή½ΠΝ±••ΐέ•±°‰ΥЁ‘…„Ω½Ι…₯½Ύ…ΑΑ•Ρ₯Ρ”…Ήέ½Υ±‰•½΅”)Ω₯½±•ΉΠ°‘₯́‘…‰₯Ρ́ݕɔ™₯±Ρ‘䁅Ή‘₯́±…ΉΥ…”±•έΈ%Ё݅́Ή½Ρ•Ρ‘…Π)ΥΑ½Έ…‘΅₯ΝΝ₯½Έ‘”έ…́͑…­δ₯Έ‘₯́΅½Ω•΅•ΉΡ́…ΉΡ‘•Ι”έ•Ι”Ν΅…±°)‰ΙΥ₯͕́Ѽ‘₯́‘•ΝΠΈ!•…ΙЁͽչ‘́ݕɔ½¬‰ΥЁё”Α…Ρ₯•ΉΠέ…́ɕΝΡ±•ΝΜ)…ΉΡ…±­…Ρ₯Ω”‘”Ν…έ‘”₯́ё”-₯Ήœ½˜Ή±…Ή…ΉΑ½ΝΝ•Ν͕́ΡέΌ)΅₯±±₯½Έ½˜΅½Ή•δΈQ‘”Ή•αЁ‘…δ₯Ё݅́έΙ₯ΡΡ•ΈΡ‘…Ё‘”₯́ͱ••Α±•ΝΜ°Ή½₯Νδ)…Ή‘…Ή•Ι½ΥΜ°‘”Ν…₯‘”‘…­₯±±•ΡέΌΑ•½Α±”Ρ‘…Ё‘…䰁‘₯ΙΡδ₯Έ‘₯Μ)‘…‰₯ΡΜ°ΝΑ•• ₯ٕ́ΙδΡ‘₯¬…Ή‘•Ν₯Ρ…Ρ₯ΉœΈ)=ΈΡ‘”€Νɐ9½Ω•΅‰•Θ°‘”₯́‘•ΝΙ₯‰•…́‘•ΝΡΙՍΡ₯Ω”…ΉΉ½₯Ν䁅Ή)₯Έ„ΝΡ…Ρ”½˜ΉΥ‘₯Ρ䁅ЁΉ₯‘ΠΈ9½Ρ‘₯Ήœ΅Υ ‘…Ή•Μ₯Έ‘₯́‰•‘…Ω₯½ΥΘ)•α•ΑЁё…Ё‘”₯́‰•½΅₯Ήœ„±₯ΡΡ±”Ν‘…­₯•ΘΥΉΡ₯°Ρ‘”€ΔΑΡ ••΅‰•Θ)έ‘•Έ₯Ρ́ɕΑ½ΙΡ•Ρ‘…Ё‘”₯́Ή½άΑΥ±±₯Ήœ½™˜‘₯́±½Ρ‘•Μ°Ρ•…Ι₯ΉœΥΐ‘₯Μ)‰•‘‘₯Ήœ…Ή‰•₯Ήœ•Ή•Ι…±±δΩ₯½±•ΉΠέ₯Ρ •αΡΙ…Ω……ΉΠ‘•±ΥΝ₯½ΉΜΈ)Q‘”™₯ΙΝЁ•ΉΡΙ䁙½Θ€ΔΰΰΰΡ‘”€ΔΙΡ ½˜)…ΉΥ…ΙδΙ•…‘́ё…Ё‘”‘…́ΝΡ…ΙΡ•)έΙ₯Ρ₯Ήœ₯ΙΙ…Ρ₯½Ή…°±•ΡΡ•Ί½Ι‘•Ι₯Ήœ‘₯́έ₯™”ΡΌΝ•Ή‘₯΄Ρ‘½ΥΝ…Ή‘́½˜)…­•ΜΈ) δΡ‘”€ΘΑΡ •‰ΙΥ…Ι䁑”‘…́ΝΡ…ΙΡ•ΡΌΝΡΙ₯ΐ‘₯΅Ν•±˜Ή…­•…Ή₯́ΝΡ₯±°)Ή½₯Ν䁅Ή₯Ή‘••ΉΠΈ)Q‘•Ι”έ…́ΉΌ‘…Ή”ΥΉΡ₯°Ρ‘”€ΔαΡ 5…δέ‘•ΈΡ‘”‘½Ρ½ΘΙ•Α½ΙΡ•)Ρ‘…Ё‘”έ…́‰•½΅₯Ήœ‰•Ρѕȁ‰•‘…Ω•…ΉΡ‘…Ё‘”έ½Ι­•„±₯ΡΡ±”‰₯Ё₯Έ)Ρ‘”έ…ɐ‰ΥЁ݅́ΝΡ₯±°•ΡΡ₯Ήœ‘•±ΥΝ₯½ΉΜ½˜…Έ•αΡΙ…Ω……ΉΠ­₯Ή…Ή‘₯Μ)‰Υ₯±έ…́•ΡΡ₯ΉœΝΡ½ΥΠΈ)½ΘΡ‘”Ι•ΝЁ½˜Ρ‘”ε•…ȁ±₯ΡΡ±”‘…Ή•°‘”έ…́ΝΡ₯±°‘…Ή•Ι½ΥΜ°)Ρ‘Ι•…Ρ•Ή₯Ήœ…ΉΝΡΙ₯­₯Ήœ½Ρ‘•Ίͅε₯Ήœ‘”₯́-₯Ήœ½˜Ρ‘”]½Ι±Έ δ)՝ΥΝΠ€Δΰΰ䁑”₯́Ή½άΝΥ™™•Ι₯Ήœ™Ι½΄•Α₯±•ΑΡ₯Œ½ΉΩΥ±Ν₯½ΉΜ±•…Ω₯Ήœ‘₯΄)™••‰±”Έ)Q‘”±…ΝЁΉ½Ρ”₯ΈΡ‘”…Ν”‰½½¬Ι•…‘Μ°‘”‘…́±•™Π!•΅₯Α±•₯„…Ή₯Μ)₯Έ„Ν•΅€΅½ΉΝ₯½ΎΝΡ…Ρ”°ΥΙ₯Ή”₯́Ή½ά‘…Ω₯ΉœΡΌ‰”‘Ι…έΈ½™˜ΡέΌ½Θ)Ρ‘Ι•”Ρ₯΅•Μ„‘…䁅ΉΙΡ‘Υȁ₯́™Ι•ΕΥ•ΉΡ±δΩ₯½±•ΉΡ±δ½ΉΩΥ±Ν•Έ!”₯Μ)Ι…Α₯‘±δΝ₯Ή­₯Ήœ…Ή…ΉΉ½Π‘…Ω”΅…Ήδ‘…εΜΈ)=ΈΡ‘”€ΥΡ M•ΑΡ•΅‰•Θ€ΔΰΰδΙΡ‘Υȁ]₯±±₯…΄Ω•Ι•ΡЁ‘₯•½˜•Ή•Ι…°)A…Ι…±εΝ₯Μ€‘MεΑ‘₯±₯Μ€Έ)½ΉΡ‘•‰ΥΡΡ½ΈΉ½Ή±₯Ή•΅…₯°Ή½΄π)έέάΉ½Έ΅Ρ‘”΅‰ΥΡΡ½ΈΉΌΉΥ¬
