Frederick Pickingale with two other boys, William Bines and William Dines, were convicted of killing a fowl and fined.  Frederick Pickingale paid his fines while the other two boys were committed for seven days on the October 2, 1873 Petty Sessions held at Rochford, Essex.

From the newspaper, Essex Newsman, Friday 10 October 1873:



Magistrates present - A. Holt White, Esq., chairman, J. Tabor, and A. Tawke, Esqrs.; and Sir Chas. Nicholson, Bart.

KILLING A FOWL. - Three boys, named respectively Wm. Bines, Wm. Dines, and Fredk. Pickingale, were charged with killing a fowl, the property of John Auger, of Canewdon, and were each fined 6d. and 8s. 6d. damage and costs.  Pickingale paid.  Dines and Bines committed for seven days


~ Christmas Eve 1890 and January 1891

Frederick Pettingale with Ed. Bines, Arthur Bines, and Frederick Hammond, all labourers were fined or alternately serve 14 days hard labour.  The case was at the Sessions held at Southend, Essex on January 21, 1891.

This was for taking and destroying 4 rabbits on land belonging to Allen Stallibrass on midnight December 24, 1890.

One wonders if the rabbits were intended for a Christmas day dinner?

From the newspaper, Essex Newsman, Friday 23 January 1891:


Magistrates present - C. A. Tabor, Esq., in the chair; Major A. C. Tawke, E. A. Wedd and E. E. Phillips, Esqrs.

CANEWDON - Ed. Bines, Arthur Bines, Fredk. Hammond, and Fredk. Pettingale, labourers, were charged with taking and destroying four rabbits, on land occupied by Mr. Allen Stallibrass, at midnight, on Dec. 24th. - Mr. Geo. Wood prosecuted.

- The defendants (who had all been previously convicted) were each fined £1 and 8s. 8d. costs, in default 14 days' hard labour. - P. c. Cowell proved the case.


~ February 1891

Frederick Pittingale and his brother, George Pittingale, with Walter Jordan and Henry Carter, all labourers, were convicted and fined for being drunk and disorderly on February 12, 1891 at the February 25, 1891 Petty Sessions held at Rochford, Essex.

The alternative was 14 days hard labor.  It would appeared that Frederick Pittingale paid his fine and that his brother George Pittingale served hard labor in the prison.  That is because only George was listed as in prison during the 1891 census.

From the newspaper, Essex Newsman, Friday 27 February 1891:


ROCHFORD, Feb. 25.

Magistrates present - C. A. Tabor, Esq., chairman; E. A. Wedd, E. E. Phillips, and G. D. Deeping, Esqrs.

CANEWDON - Walter Jordan, Hy. Carter, Geo. Pittingale, and Fredk. Pittingale, labourers, were each fined 10s. and 8s. 6d. costs, in default 14 days' hard labour, for being drunk and disorderly, on the 12th inst.
