GUILTY . Aged 40. - Transported for Fourteen Years .

Police Intelligence.
Extensive Embezzlement.

On Tuesday, Charles Lewis, a middle-aged man, who had for some years been employed as a clerk by Messrs. Bradbury and Greatorex, of Aldermanbury, warehousemen, was brought before Mr Alderman Garratt, charged with embezzling various sums of money. The solicitor for the prosecution briefly stated the nature of the case, and called Mr Stevens, a linen-draper, in Newington-causeway, who proved that he paid the prisoner, as collecting clerk for the prosecutors, the sum of 100l. on the 26th of March.
Mr. Griffin, a linen draper at Walworth, also proved the payment of 112l. 12s. to the prisoner, on the same day, being the general collecting day in the trade.
Mr. Bradbury deposed, that the prisoner had not at all accounted for the money received from Mr. Stevens, and had paid in 10l. short of that received from Mr. Griffin.
The solicitor asked whether both these sums were in the list of deficiencies which the prisoner has sent to him.
Mr. Harmer, for the prisoner, said a complete case for trial had been made out, without referring to the prisoners admission. The fact was, that the prisoner had, upon being discharged at a short notice, furnished a list of sums which he had received, promising to pay them, or any others that might be found, at an early period.
The solicitors said he had a month's warning.-
" Well," said Mr. Harmer, "that is but a short time."
The solicitor observed, that the prisoner had absented himself ten days after receiving the notice.-Mr. Harmer believed he had assigned a reason.-The prisoner said " Yes, he pleaded illness."-" And do not you know," said Mr. Harmer, "that he had a sudden death in his family, which would account for that illness? Did not one of his children die in an instant? It is a distressing case. He has five children still living, and his wife is pregnant. The poor man was found provided with the means of destroying himself."
A person standing among the spectators here burst into tears, and said, he had offered the prosecutors 300l. on account, towards the deficiencies.-The solicitors replied, the sums embezzled amounted to almost twice as much.-Mr. Harmer said, now the facts had been laid before the Magistrate, there was no alternative but a committal. He could make no answer to the charge.

Mr Alderman Garratt, after pausing for a moment, said, that however painful the duty might be, the case was so clear, that he must commit him for trial.-
The prisoner, who seemed greatly distressed, was committed accordingly. 
BRADBURY, John Esq (I644)
Mrs. Louis Hyman - nee - MARTHA GRACE CURLETTE
Written July 10 1932

Information in square brackets [] added by Timothy Ryeland

My Grandfather, Robert Emmett Curlette, had the Genealogical Chart that traced the Curlette family back to the reign of Henry IV of France [Dec 13, 1553 - May 14, 1610]. The Curlettes were French Huguenots and lived at Rochelle [La Rochelle], France, stronghold of the Huguenots. Many of them held important civic offices under the French government. King Henry IV was a Huguenot at heart, but for the peace of his kingdom, practiced the Catholic religion. He showed many favors to the Huguenots, and for his kindness to them, was assassinated by Reveille, a Jesuit [François Ravaillac, May 14, 1610 in Paris].

After the revocation of the Edict of Nantes by Louis XIV [in 1685], many of our ancestors were inhumanly murdered, their estates confiscated and they had to flee the county. Our direct ancestors fled to Scotland from there all Huguenots were banished to Ireland by Mary Queen of Scots. In Ireland they intermarried with the Irish and became Irish. My grandfather, Robert Emmett Curlette, was born at Downpatrick in the County of Down, the city where St. Patrick is buried. My grandfather took part in the Emmett Rebellion in 1798, and had he been caught by the British Government, his fate would have been the same as that of Robert Emmett (who was his cousin) who was executed for his participation in this Rebellion.

Robert Emmet Curlette was obliged to hide in caves in Ireland waiting for a ship to take him to America - there were several others hiding in this cave with him, one of whom accompanied my grandfather to Canada. This man was a Mr. Wilson the maternal grandfather of W. K. Michael, K.C. of Belleville, Ont., and at one time Mayor of that city. When my grandfather succeeded in getting a ship to take him to America, he landed in New York whence he came to Green Point, Prince Edward County, Ont., where he bought land and also build a distillery - the remains of this distillery can be seen to-day on the property of the late Thorp Carman, farmer.

In the war of 1812, R.E. Curlette joined the American army and was killed in the Battle of Queenston Heights. Having fought against the British Government his property at Green Point was confiscated and bought for a song by the Trumpour family, who daughter he married. R.E. Curlette's wife, Christine Trumpour, was the daughter of a United Empire Loyalist, who in the American Revolution, fought for the King - he was a Colonel in the British Army, and after the revolutionists won the day, he had to get out of new York where he owned considerable land along the Hudson, which property was confiscated by the Revolutionists. King George gave land to all U.E. Loyalists in Canada, furnished ships for them to get there, also farming implements, produce, food, etc.

My great grandfather, Paul Trumpour, settled in Green Point, Ont. And took up land there, and that is where Robert Emmett Curlette met his wife, Christine Trumpour. Her father, Paul Trumpour, was horrified that the daughter of a U.E. Loyalist would marry a rebel, one who had fought against the King, and consequently cast her off, and when her husband Robert Emmett Curlette was killed at the Battle of Queenston Heights, refused to help her or her children in any way, although the Trumpour family were in possession of the confiscated property of her husband, R.E. Curlette.

My great grandfather, Paul Trumpour, belonged to one of the old Knickerbocker (Dutch) families. His ancestors came to New York when it was called Manhattan, and was owned by the Dutch, and had a Dutch governor. My great grandmother's maiden name (Trumpour) was Janet Barr. My father, James Ford Curlette, was a posthumous child, born three months after his father had been killed at Queenston Heights. He was born in Green Point, Ont. On May 28«sup»th«/sup», 1812. He was the youngest of four sons, whose names were Edward, John, William, - and James my father.

My father, Dr. J. F. Curlette, was an active practitioner of medicine in Belleville, Ont. From 1869 until a few years before his death, which occurred at the family residence on Grove Street, in the summer of 1898. He shoed in his early days a preference for the study of the "healing art" and as there were no recognized medical schools in Canada, he was sent to Fairfield, afterwards to Geneva, N.Y., and in 1842 he graduated from the School of Medicine in that place. A medical College was instituted in Toronto shortly after, and to that school he was sent for one year, to enable him to practice in Canada. After obtaining his license, he settled in Demorestville, Ont., and remained there until 1869 when he went to Belleville and was considered to be one of the ablest medical men there until illness compelled him to retire from active work. My father Dr. Curlette, was known as one of the most reliable authorities on the early history of Canada, and in matters referring to the land of his fathers, he was always most enthusiastic, on of his proudest boasts being that he was a cousin of the famous Irish Patriot, Robert Emmett.

N.B. I, Martha Grace Curlette (Hyman) am the daughter of Doctor James Ford Curlette, and his wife, Martha Ann Thompson, and was born at Demorestville. Ont., on April 28«sup»th«/sup», 1853.
