1899/Robert Smith/../../../Kelly’s Hertfordshire Directory **

At a lecture at New Scotland Yard on “The Moat Farm Murder” of 1899-1903; in which he mentioned that
Samuel Herbert Dougal the murderer was in about 1889 the licensee of a pub at Ware called “the Royston Crow.” It is not clear whether this is the same building or one to which the licence was later transferred.
A Hertfordshire newspaper of that time, reporting Dougal’s trial and acquittal at Hertford Assizes. The nub of the
case was that Dougal had set fire to The Royston Crow whilst the landlord on 3rd August 1899 and had made a false insurance claim.  Details of the case can be found  at the Essex Police Museum site. ***
