They were captured in 1892 and placed in cells alongside the aforementioned Lewisham Five to form the Lewisham Nine.  Following creative differences. this soon became the Lewisham Three and the Lewisham Six, before finally settling on the Lewisham One and the Lewisham Eight.

Fisby Clarke -  left the Lewisham Four to form the Lewisham Two.  Specialised in burglary, weak on numeracy.

Lakeside Junior Players

This sorry bunch of ne’er-do-wells are included here because they were responsible for the most criminal performance of The Merchant of Venice that Holmes and I had ever seen.  Holmes’ own notes are sketchy on their history – they were either hanged at Newgate or became farmers in Glossop.  Either way, London is a safer place without them.
