  GrahamClayton: Away from chess, Puller was responsible for erecting monuments to those people who played a part in abolishing the slave trade in England in the 19th century. A picture of the unveiling of the plaque for Thomas Clarkson in 1879 can be seen here:

  MissScarlett: Pall Mall Gazette, September 11th 1866, p.7:

<At the Greenwich police-court to-day Mr. Arthur Giles Puller, aged thirty-three, describing himself as a barrister, and residing at Youngsbury, Ware, Hertfordshire, was charged with wilfully breaking two squares of plate glass, value 4 10s., the property of Mr. Rattenbury, landlord of the Halfway House public-house, Lower Deptford-road, Rotherhithe. James Bateman, coffee-house keeper, 3, Willis's-terrace, Rotherhithe, said about five o'clock this morning the prisoner knocked at his house and wanted to be supplied with some coffee. He was told none would be ready for half an hour, and he turned to go away, but afterwards jumped over the palings and broke a pane of glass, value 10s. The prisoner then ran across the road, and with an axe he was carrying (produced) struck at the window of Mr. Rattenbury's house, breaking two squares of glass. - The prisoner (interrupting the witness) said he was anxious to afford any recompense that was necessary. The axe produced and found in his possession was used by him in ascending mountains, he being a member of the Alpine Club. Mr. Traill ordered the prisoner to pay a nominal fine of 1s. and 5 damages, together with 8s. costs, or one month's imprisonment.>
