    • Clarence G Prescott was a solicitor in Young, NSW. There are a numbe
      of references to him in his practice in Young in the period 1930 t
      o 1933, including probate matters (including that of his mother in Feb
      uary 1931 (Source: Advertising. (1931, February 27). The Sydney Morni
      g Herald (NSW : 1842-1954), p. 7. Retrieved December 29, 2010, from h
      ttp://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article16757800) and in his capacity as soli
      citor for the Young Pastures Protection Board. At the age of 41, he d
      eparted Melbourne on SS Esperance Bay to London (Hull), arriving ther
      e 21 May 1934, address in the UK given as Regent Palace Hotel, London
      . There was no Mary G Prescott or Cotterill aboard. (Source: The Natio
      al Archives of the UK, Board of Trade: Commercial and Statistical Dep
      artment and successors: Inwards Passenger Lists; database online at An
      cestry.com. Accessed 30 Dec 2010) On 26th Oct 1934 the following appe
      ared in The Sydney Morning Herald: SOLICITOR DEALT WITH Ex p
      arte Incorporated Law Institute of New South Wales re Prescott. A
      fter considering two charges of professional misconduct arising out o
      f reports by other solicitors under rule of court 27D, the court direc
      ted that the name of Clarence Gordon Prescott, of Young, should be rem
      oved from the roll of solicitors, and that he should pay the costs o
      f the Institute on the application. In making the order the Chie
      f Justice said that from the material placed before the court it appea
      ed to be clear that the respondent misappropriated his clients' mone
      y and had endeavoured to conceal his defalcations by false statements
      . There was no appearance of the respondent, who was said to be i
      London. The court had directed that substituted service should be ef
      fected by leaving copies of all documents at the registered office o
      f the respondent in Lynch-street, Young. Mr. Alan S. Lloyd, who a
      ppeared for the institute yesterday, outlined the two matters which th
      e respondent had been called upon to answer. He said that it appeare
      d that respondent had received £3955 between March 23, 1931, and Novem
      ber 10, 1931, from John Maroney and his wife and daughter for the purp
      ose of paying the debts of two sons of Maroney who were working farmin
      g properties as partners. On June 9, 1931, when respondent had receive
      d £2000, he informed Maroney, sen., that the money had been distribute
      d. Subsequently respondent received another £1955 from Maroney, sen.
      , for the same purpose. The transactions were investigated by Messrs V
      igars and Sky, accountants, who obtained from the respondent solicito
      a statement purporting to set out amounts paid between March 1, 1931
      , and September 30, 1932. That statement showed receipts as £3900 an
      d payments as £3500. It appeared from investigations that some of th
      e items stated to have been paid had not been paid at all, and that i
      other instances smaller sums had been paid than those set out in th
      e statement. It also appeared from the statement that the respondent s
      olicitor had appropriated £500 for his costs, whereas the costs relati
      g to transactions covered by the statement amounted to £92 odd. It wa
      s charged that when he stated in his letter of June 9, 1931, to Mr. Ma
      oney, that he had disbursed £2000, he had only paid out £664/2/6. Th
      e second matter related to the alleged misappropriation of moneys in t
      he estate of James Carroll, of which the respondent solicitor was an e
      xecutor. Mr. Alan S. Lloyd (instructed by Messrs F W. Walker an
      d Son) appeared for the Incorporated Law Institute. (LAW REPORT. (193
      4, October 26). The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842-1954), p. 8. Ret
      ieved December 29, 2010, from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article17112
      495) On 6th July 1935 the following appeared in The Sydney Morning He
      ald: VERDICT FOR £136. YOUNG. Friday A verdict for £13
      6/11/9 was given in the District Court by Judge Coyle in favour of th
      e plaintiff, Sidney Taylor, against C. G. Prescott, a solicitor, forme
      ly of Young, who sold his practice and left Australia. Taylor cl
      aimed that he handed the solicitor £300, of which £200 was returned an
      d the balance lent at 10 per cent. interest. He had received no paymen
      t, and claimed the principal plus interest. (VERDICT FOR £136. (1935
      , July 6). The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842-1954), p. 16. Retriev
      ed December 29, 2010, from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article17194349
      ) It appears he was joined in England in November that year by his wi
      fe Mary G. (nee Cotterill) and sons Peter aged 13 and Geoffrey aged 12
      . (Source: The National Archives of the UK, Board of Trade: Commercia

      ; database online at Ancestry.com. Accessed 30 Dec 2010) No record o
      f the family has been located to date after their arrival in England f
      om Australia, although one family source has suggested Clarence becam
      e a chiropodist in South Africa.
