25 Stanley Street
I think that this pub became the
1838 - 51 James Isherwood
1853 Jane Isherwood
Property owned by a Mr. Pickup.
A man named James Isherwood was charged with
having in his possession a quantity of moutre. The
prisoner kept a beer-shop in Cellar Street.
In consequence of information received, PC. Walmsley
went to his house and in a hat box, upstairs, he found
20 bobbins of Turkey red-weft, belonging to Richard
Preston, Derby Street.
The prisoner was remanded, to give time to produce
evidence as to how he obtained the weft.

The following week he was fined £20 or
one month in prison in default.
I think that the reporter mis-heard Stanley Street
for Cellar Street - a not unusual error in 19th century newspapers
(AN feeD COME TO THINK OF IT, SOME MODERN ONES AS WELL!!)
In a court case when ISHERWOOD had had
something stolen, the paper carried the following:
"It appears that the prisoner, who was
a denizen of Isherwood's abode of
enlightenment, through absolute want,
had taken the articles and pawned them,"
She, (Abigail Hartley) was given 2 months
imprisonment, with hard labour.
