Susan Report 3 Feb 2014 19:42

Has anyone found a relative that was in prison? The relative I think who was was sentenced in 1892 in the Clerkenwell Sessions House. It doesn't say what prison they went to, but gives the offence of 'wounding' with the sentence 18 months. I would like to know what happended when he left prison as he seems to go off radar.
Any ideas how I could get hold of the record? Thanks

Thank you for your replies.
MarieCeleste. His name is George Samuel Tiencken, he was born Bethnal Green, London in April 1874. His mother was Elizabeth Margetts and his father Claus Tiencken (German). He had two sisters: Ann and Charlotte. I lose him after 1892. Can't find any record of a death or marriage other than the prison record. I'd be grateful for any pointer as to where I go from here. Thank you again.

Thank-you everyone. I lose him after 1892. I can only think that he died. went overseas or changed his name.

safc - how do I search a Militia Service Record - that looks a possibility?
Thank-you

Thanks for that Maddie, it was very interesting. He didn;t last long in service did he. So he must have gone to the workhouse when he left, and from there to prison. Just need to find out what happened to him when he was released now.
Thanks again.

Well we have all found info like yourself up to when he went in prison but after that zilch. Wonder if he changed his name so that's why we can't find him :-(
