ANDREW KING

West Malling, Kent


A coroner's jury at West Malling, Kent, has returned a verdict of death from natural causes in the case of Mr. Andrew King, a well-known local jeweller. On Sunday last he was spinning for pike in the Medway, and on meeting a friend stopped to relate an amusing experience he had had with live bait. He laughed heartily and suddenly fell dead. A post-mortem showed that Mr. King's heart was five times the normal size and larger than that of a bullock. Death, it was stated, resulted from heart disease.

H.T. WATERFIELD

7, St. Peter's Street, Canterbury


Image
H.T. Waterfield - Canterbury - 1917


The business of Henry Tween Waterfield. He was in business from at least 1896, likely succeeding that of Charles Ephraim James.


James Boylan, a private in the 9th Lancers, was charged with stealing a gent's diver watch valued at 27s. 6d., the property of Henry Tween Waterfield, watchmaker and jeweller, of 7, St. Peter’s street, Canterbury.

Henry Tween Waterfield, living at 7, St. Peter’s Street, and carrying on business as a watchmaker and jeweller, stated that prisoner came into his shop at 10.30 on Saturday night. Witness showed him the watch produced. He looked at it and then asked to see one that opened in front. While he was showing him another one prisoner ran out of the shop with the watch produced. Witness followed him and caught him outside the Cricketers’ Arms in St. Peter’s street and detained him. The watch was subsequently shown to him by Sergeant Swain and he identified it as his property. The value of the watch was 27s. 6d. Sergt. Swain stated that at 10.35 p.m. on Saturday the 8th inst. he was passing Messrs. Welby and Co’s, shop in St. Peter’s street when he saw the watch produced lying on the pavement. He picked it up. He saw a crowd outside the “Cricketers” public house and prisoner being detained by the last witness. Witness took him into custody on the charge of stealing the watch. At the police station he said "I do not know anything about a watch."

The prisoner pleaded guilty and said he had nothing to say.

A captain of the 5th Lancers said prisoner only came out of prison on Friday the 7th March after undergoing forty-two days' imprisonment for desertion. The magistrates sentenced prisoner to six weeks’ hard labour.

Prisoner was then charged with being an absentee from the 9th Lancers.

Sergt. Swain proved the charge, and the Bench ordered prisoner to he handed over to the military authorities at the completion of the six weeks.
