Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ON THE RECORD -

The po­lice in Sh­effiel­d­received a tele­gram on Satur­day from Mr Fred­er­ick Gib­son, land­lord of the Royal Oak Inn, Ely, to the ef­fect that his wife, Su­san­nah Gib­son, had that day eloped with a man named Henry Wright, who was about twelve months ago their lodger.

The renegade cou­ple were traced to Peter­bor­ough, where it was found that they had booked for Sh­effield. Po­lice-sergeant Matthews and Po­lice-con­sta­ble Wint were de­puted to go to the Mid­land Sta­tion, Sh­effield, to await the train.Itar­rived at one o’clock on Sun­day morn­ing, and the happy (?) cou­ple were at once ap­pre­hended.

Great credit is due to the of­fi­cers for their per­spicu­ity, inas­much as the woman was not at­tired as de­scribed. Her gay Lothario was also in pri­vate clothes.
