    1. [NORTHEY] (Fwd) Weekly Newspaper 7th August 1857
    2. Dave Naylor
    3. ------- Forwarded message follows ------- Date sent: Sun, 14 Jul 2013 04:22:12 -0400 Subject: Weekly Newspaper 7th August 1857 West Briton and Cornwall Advertiser. 7th August 1857. TRIALS OF PRISONERS - OLIVER NORTHEY, a miner, aged 18, was charged with maliciously stabbing and wounding SIMON WHITFORD, at Chacewater,on the 31st of March, with intent to maim, disfigure, and do him some grievous bodily harm. Mr. PHEAR conducted the prosecution; the prisoner was undefended. From the evidence of the prosecutor, confirmed by his brother JOSEPH WHITFORD, it appeared that, about ten o'clock in the evening of the 31st of March, they were returning from work, and passed the prisoner and one or two companions, who said to the Whitfords "go home, you have no business here," and followed them, throwing stones at them. The Whitfords turned back, and Simon asked Northey why he and his companions were throwing stones. Northey said he had not thrown any, and Simon Whitford said he had; violent words followed, and they called each other liar several times; still at last Northey spring forth, and thrust a knife into Simon Whitford's left hip, crying "take that, you b---r." Simon fell, and was caught by a third brother. Joseph asked Northey what he had done it for; on which he lifted his knife, and threatened to serve him (Joseph) exactly the same, if he did not go away. Mr. JOHN MOYLE, surgeon, of Chacewater, deposed; I remember being called to attend the prosecutor about half-past ten o'clock at night on the 31st of March. I found him at the house of his uncle, lying on the ground floor, partly faint from loss of blood. I examined the seat of injury, and found that his trousers, drawers, and shirt had been cut through and that on the outer and upper part of the left thigh was an incised wound into the flesh; the wound measured one and a half inches in length, and from contraction of the muscle it gaped open three-quarters of an inch; I probed the wound with my finger, which passed readily to a depth of two-and-a-half inches. I dressed the wound, and afterwards attended the prosecutor in order to prevent unfavourable symptoms coming on, I thought it necessary to confine him to his uncle's house where I saw him daily for about three weeks. From the direction of the wound and its passing near the femoral artery and several important veins, it was a dangerous character. I have no doubt the wound was inflicted with considerable violence. By the Prisoner:- I do not remember hearing Simon Whitford say that he had stuck you; but I think I heard him say, before the committing magistrates, that he held his fist up before you and said he would knock you down. JOHN PHILLIPS, constable of Chacewater: in consequence of information I received, I apprehended the prisoner at his house about half-past eleven o'clock at night of the 31st of March; he had gone to bed, and was quite sober. Cross-Examined by the Prisoner:- When I took the prisoner to the house where Simon Whitford was, the prisoner asked him if he (Whitford) did not strike him first; Whitford replied that he was not quite certain, but that he rather thought he did. This being the case for the prosecution, the prisoner addressed the jury, giving a different version of the original affray from what had been stated by the prosecutor and his brother, and concluding by saying that, after Simon Whitford had struck him, he, in the heat of passion and not knowing what he was about, threw a knife at him in self defence. The jury found the prisoner Guilty of unlawfully wounding, but not with intent to do grievous bodily harm. The learned judge passed sentence of Two Years Hard Labour: stating that if the jury found the prisoner guilty of the greater offence charged in the indictment, he should have felt it his duty to sentence him to penal servitude for some years. ------------------------------- Visit the OPC (Online Parish Clerk) web page for transcription information http://www.cornwall-opc.org/ ------- End of forwarded message ------- -- David Naylor, Halton Hills, Ontario, Canada. ---

    1. [NORTHEY] Checking whether Robert Northy is from the family tree
    2. Heather Matthews
    3. Hi I am trying to find out whether Robert Northy born c 1779 Tavistock, Devon is from this family tree. He died in 1824 in Tavistock, and was married to Dorothy Venning in 1803. His parents were William Northe and Margaret Martyn who married also in Tavistock in 1769. Is there a "public' family tree available to view on the internet. Thanks Heather Matthews

Fatal Accident.-A fatal occurrence took place at the Consolidated Mines, Gwennap, on Monday afternoon. An immense boiler, belonging to one of the steam engines, and which weighs about 15 tons, was being removed, and for that purpose it was placed on a carriage used for such purposes, and to which was attached 20 horses. The carriage had to descend by a gentle slope, along the side of a declivity of about 25 feet in height, and part of the road was constructed for the occasion. About 100 men were employed in retarding the motion of the carriage along the descent, and for this purpose several strong ropes were attached to it, which were held by the men. When the carriage came to the newly-made part of the road, the weight caused the ground to give way, and the boiler was precipitated over the declivity. One of the men employed in retarding its progress along the road, named James Northey, became entangled in the ropes and was whirled with immense velocity after the boiler! , down the precipice, by which he was so dreadfully injured, as to occasion his death in about five minutes after the accident.

I haven't found his marriage to Amelia, which makes me wonder if there really was one at all. I can't find him anywhere after 1871, which is quite interesting, and I note that Amelia went back to calling herself Parsons. Have you seen the 1876 newspaper report of the debt proceedings where the judge warns the public that they should "give no credence to Mrs Tarraway"? I presume you have, from your dating of the desertion (it says he had left four years before). I don't feel I can give you my friend's details, because that's her business, but I'll be talking to her next week and I'll send her a link to this thread and tell her you might be interested in making contact.
