Frederick Bailey Deeming’s Hull Frauds

Archives, Hull Press, Press Reports, Research Add comments

Despite numerous articles and texts alluding to the frauds carried out in Hull by Frederick Bailey Deeming, very few newspaper accounts have surfaced, with only one exception which stated that Deeming had been given 9 months for his criminal deeds. 

I managed to track down the Calender of Prisoners for 1890, and the Michaelmas Quarter Sessions on the case, but they did not run to much, and contained very little useful information. 

With this in mind, and a new wind, I once again trawled the Hull Press for the year 1890 and sure enough, I discovered several newspaper reports covering Deemings criminal activities in Hull, and the chase that the Hull Detectives gave across the globe. 

More interestingly, I uncovered an article written by Detective Grassby, the man responsible for capturing Deeming in Monte-Video, and bringing him back to Hull.  Grassby’s article was a great find, as it contained many hiterto unknown details about Deeming’s conduct on the journey back to Hull.
