Harry Baldock, Agricultural Labourer (

1896 - At the Canterbury Quarter Sessions, two young men named Richards and Cork, were indicted of stealing a large quantity of corrugated iron and wire netting, the property of their employers, Messrs. Court Bros., and Reuben Nye and Harry Baldock were also indicated of feloniously receiving the same. The case created considerable public interest, as it appeared that the depredations had been going on for a long time. For the defence it was contended that the supervision over the warehouse department had been exceedingly lax. Richards was imprisoned for four months and Cork for three months, the other prisoners being acquitted by the jury.
