BEF 1870-AFT 1871: Police Constable for Metropolitan Detective dept.in Plymouth.Occupation Note: The following press report probably refers to John MORCOMBE, but could possibly refer to James MORCOMBE (8845) who was a constable in HM Dockyard, Devonport, at the same time.Reynolds's Newspaper (London, England), Sunday, October 23, 1870; Issue 1054. Long report headed, tendaciously, "How Prostitutes are Made by Act of Parliament". The case was heard before Admiral LOWE and Mr LAITY, magistrates at Stonehouse, Devon. "Catherine P...... applied to the magistrates under the Contageous Diseases Acts, to be relieved from periodical examinations at the Royal Albert Hospital, Devonport.".. The case was characterised by almost complete conflict of evidence between the girl, her mother and her sister, and Constable MORCOMBE and Inspector ANNIS, there being no independent witnesses. The girl and her mother contended that she was a 16 year old virgin, until arrested by Constable MORCOMBE who told her she would not be examined by a doctor. She was so upset by the brutality of the doctor's examination that she subsequently took to prostitution for six weeks, but had recently reformed her behaviour, and wished to go into a Rescue Society home for "fallen women". She claimed Inspector INNIS had put his own cross to a false confession that she had been, before the examination, a prostitute, and that she agreed to be examined by the doctor . The police claimed that she had been habitually a prostitute for the past year. Her counsel argued that there was a incentive under the Act for the police to bring false cases. The magistrates ruled that she had to undergo the examination, and could afterwards go into a home if she so wished. Her counsel said that she would refuse to go to the hospital and would, in consequence, be imprisoned..

RESIDENCES:

BEF 1891-AFT 1891: 16,Mount Street,Charles,Plymouth,DEV

Residence Note:
Census 1851: HO/107/1885 Folio 576 Page 16 FLH Film 0221035In 1901 John was boarding at 3 York Cottages, near the junction of York Road and Oxford Street. The owners were Thomas P GILBERT, 70, and his wife Mary, 61.

OCCUPATIONS:
1857-1859: Private for Ist Battalion 8th Foot (The king's) in India.Occupation Note: CHECK that it is this John MORCOMBE who is recorded by the Families in British India database as as receiving the Indian Mutiny Medal.
BEF 1861-AFT 1861: Private for Royal Marines in Devon.
BEF 1871-AFT 1871: Ship's Corporal 2C for HM Troopship "Tamar" in Stoke Damerel, Plymouth.Occupation Note: At the date of his marriage in 1876 he was described as Corporal RN of East Stonehouse. He was still a Ship's Corporal in 1881 - location unknown.According to his Naval record John MORCOMBE, b. 3 Aug 1870 in Drewsteignton, 5ft 7 ins, dark hair, hazel eyes, dark complexion, signed on for a further 10 years service on 3 August 1870. He appears to have served until 31 Aug 1884 when he was pensioned.The ships he served on (in date order) were Rattlesnake, Royal Adelaide, Indus, Cambridge, Tamar, Lapwing, Victor Emanuel, Tyne, Royal Adelaide, and Daedulus. He was a ship's corporal throughout this period of service, his character on leaving each ship being generally described as "very good" or "exemplorary", though the comment on his penultimate posting was only "fair"..
BEF 1891-AFT 1891: 1891 in Naval Pensioner.

GENERAL NOTE:
It appears as if John and Jane were recorded as Samuel and Bessie in the 1891 census. Their landlady was related to them, so it would be surprising if she had listed the names incorrectly. An alternative is a mistake by the enumerator. It is also possible that the couple were, at the time, deliberately concealing their identity for some unknown reason.The reasons for concluding that the couple really were John & Jane MORCOMBEare:1. The third boarder was their son John and his description was exactly as would be expected from his 1881 and 1901 census entries.2, The ages and birth places of "Saml" and "Bessie" closely match those of John and Jane. John had served in the navy and would, therefore, be a naval pensioner as recorded in the 1891 census entry.3. Jane MORCOMBE nee KNOTT was the aunt of another resident Annie KNOTT (daughter of her Jane's younger brother William). Annie was entered in the census as a cousin of the Eliz. HOUSE, the head of household, and her two brothers Wm & Hy SURMAN.
