Times Article - Chantrey DEVERELL 1850

I found this article in the Police section of "The Times" of London, 10 Sep 1850. Perhaps it will be of use to one of you.

"Chantrey W. DEVERELL, under 20 years of age, was charged with threatening the life of his father, who holds a situation in the School of Design at Somerset House. The disobedience and heartless misconduct of the defendent were sufficiently proved by the evidence of the father and a servant of the family; while his vindictive behaviour in the presence of the magistrate afforded abundant confirmation of the charge. Mr. Henry lectured the defendant without making any visible impression upon his mind, and then ordered him to keep the peace for four months. In default of the requisite sureties (two in 50 l. each) he was committed to prison for that period."
