MarieCeleste Report 1 Dec 2012 19:55

The Yorkshire Gazette dated 13 December 1862 reports that a Robert Noddles, labourer of Kilham, stole 17lb of beef, pork and suet. A man left it on a bench in an inn and he swiped it. He denied the theft but the meat was found in a bedroom at his home. Committed for trial.

The York Herald dated 14 June 1862 reports that a Robert Noddle, labourer from Kilham, was charged with unlawfully taking a rabbit from the grounds of Sir H Boynton at Burton Agnes. The evidence was unsatisfactory and the case dismissed.

(Sounds to me like he was just trying to feed his family).

another food related crime:

Hull Packet - 28 September 1877.
Robert Noddle, labourer Kilham, charged with aiding and abetting a man stealing onions from someone else's garden. Previous convictions for larceny. Fine £1 and 8s costs.
