“I will have your things moved over to the office later today Jack; there will also be a significant rise in salary as well. Do you reckon you can handle it?
Yes George, I know this pit better than anyone.
“Right lets have a drink on it.
Jack Reamer was almost twenty six years old and now he was the boss of the Shotton Colliery; He acted accordingly. There was a knock at the door and the mob he talked to last night walked in. Jeff Sharp followed shortly after.
“Right Sharp said Jack I know all about you’re fiddling with the weight of the coal. Sharp protested his innocence but the others in the room wanted to keep their jobs and told jack he was lying. You are sacked forthwith Sharp and you will never work in a coal mine again because I will black list you in every coal mine in England Now get out of my office and off this pit. Jack sat back with a satisfied smile Things were gradually working out for him he rose from the leather chair and looked out of the window of his new office.

The Cobblers Rest was almost full every night; they sold real ale which the locals liked.
There was music by way of a fiddle and an accordion going on and the ladies were dancing around the tables as Edward Rochdale walked through the door. Everyone bowed or doffed their caps as Rochdale made his way to a table. One of the young ladies came over showing a very large cleavage as she knealt over the table to take Rochdale’s order.
Rochdale knew the girl as he had slept with her many times before.
He grabbed her left buttock with his hand and squeezed.
Everyone laughed except the gentleman who was sitting in the corner in darkness.
He watched Rochdale as the drink made him more and more aggressive.
By the end of the evening Rochdale was drunk again. He took hold of the girl and dragged her out of the door.
“Come on Wench stop playing hard to get. It was at this point that the gentleman came out from the corner and began to speak with the other girls in the bar who clearly despised Edward Rochdale.
“Does Rochdale come here a lot then?
Oh yes, he likes to either pick a fight or make play with the girls here.
“Did you know Miss Martha Stephenson who worked as a maid at the Hartford Manor?
“Buy me a drink sir and I will tell you things that will make your hair curl.
Alan Bertram bought the girl a drink then they sat down.
I used to work in the Manor house too before Edward took a fancy to me and I was hard pushed to fend him off.
Martha was so shy when she started and that made Edward all the more determined to have her. 
Were you there the night she was raped?
“Yes, Miss Martha was in love with Robert Mason the blacksmith she planned to marry him until Edward Rochdale found out. Edward told the butler to get Martha to 

go to the stables as Robert wanted to see her when in fact he had sent Robert to shoe a friend’s horse in Benton.”

“When Martha came into the stable Edward locked the door.

How do you know this?

I was with Ray Butters the game keeper in the hay loft, we saw everything.

“Is Ray Butters still around?

“Yes he is still at the Manor House.
