Jean-Marc is a retired detective sergeant after 30 years’ service, with both the Metropolitan and Essex Police services. Since his retirement, he has taken on the role of editor for the Guild and is currently undertaking a master’s degree course (Family and Local History) with CAIS at the University of Dundee. He has been interested in his family history since the late 1970’s with research being carried out in both in England and in France where his mother was born. His father is also a retired police officer having served 36 years with the Port of London Police Authority hence Jean-Marc’s interest in giving this presentation.

History of the London Dock Police

Due to the many cargo ships sitting idly in the Pool of London and the continual loss of those goods through theft, the first of the London Docks was opened in August 1802. Just two months later, Captain Robert Bartlett was sworn in as the first Head Constable of the newly established police force, shortly followed by seven constables. Jean-Marc’s talk will look at the various London dock police forces that were created during the early part of the nineteenth century.

Jean-Marc will be presenting at the Guild of One-Name Studies conference on Sunday 2nd April 2017. Non-members are welcome and booking is currently still open.
Presentations will be available to Guild members after the event.
