Suffragette Lilian Lenton in Court 1913

A newspaper placard dated Wednesday, June 11, 1913, with the headline, 'Miss. Lenton's Reappearance.' Lilian Lenton (1891-1972) was arrested under the name 'May Dennis' in Doncaster on 9th June and remanded. She was charged with setting fire to 'Westfield', a house at Balby, at Leeds Assizes and sent to Armley Jail. She went on hunger strike and after several days was released, although not forcibly fed. Lilian was a notorious 'Mouse' who evaded police capture several times. In an interview in the 1950s, she boasted that her aim was to burn two buildings a week, 'when not in prison.' She was imprisoned along with Olive Wharry in March 1912 for burning down the tea pavillion in Kew Gardens. Date: 1913

Captain Nolan

Captain Edward Nolan (1818-1854), killed at the Charge of the Light Brigade of the Battle of Balaclava of October 25th 1854 during the Crimean War. Nolan, of the 15th Hussars, was charged with carrying Lord Raglan's orders instructing Lord Lucan to embark on the disastrous manouevre. Nolan was killed by an exploding shell as the cavalry set off. His obituary in the Illustrated London News absolves Nolan from any blame and concentrates heavily on his book about military matters, which had previously been reviewed in the paper in January of that year. Date: 25th November 1854

Charged at Bow Street: Dr Crippen and Miss Le Neve in the do

Dr Crippen, an American citizen, lived at 39 Hilldrop Cresent, Camden, London. He was accused of murdering his wife when she disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Crippen had told friends that his wife, Belle Elmore had died due to illness, but when first questioned by police he told them she had eloped with a lover. The police returned to Hilldrop Cresent to question Crippen a second time only to discover that he and his mistress, Miss Le Neve had disappeared. Detectives searched around the house and uncovered a headless body in the cellar. A warrant was released for Dr Crippen's arrest. The captain of the ship the 'Montrose', on which Crippen was travelling in disguise, suspected him and his fellow passenger, Le Neve (dressed as a boy). The captain sent a wireless message to Scotland Yard, telling of his suspicions. The ship was greeted by the police and Dr Crippen and Miss Le Neve were arrested. Crippen was tried for murder and sentenced to death, whilst Miss Le Neve was acquitted and moved to America under a different name.
