Before taking on the public house in 1880, William Jackson had been, for many years, in the employ of Mr. J. T. Cook, coal merchant. During that time he defrauded his master by understating the amount of coal taken out of the yard. When the consequent deficit in stock was noticed, Jackson was warned. Not wishing to defraud his master, he decided to `cook the books' and by taking on a loan from the brewers and running a small public house, as well as still being yardman for Mr. Cook, he hoped the profits would recoup the debt.
Unfortunately this proved a great loss.
On 12th, 19th and 23rd March 1881 the police had secretly monitored the amounts of coal leaving and being returned to the yard. On those days, Jackson and his employee Hall, had said they took out a total of 13 ton 18 cwt, but actually took 17 ton 2 cwt.
Mr. Jackson was imprisoned for six months.

Referred for Compensation 05.03.1923
