Stolen Art Watch, Terry "Olive" Boyle, 24.08.43 - 06.05.2020, Brighton's Baddest, Badass, Becomes Central Part of Art & Antiques Folklore.


There is so much to say about Terry Boyle, some good, some great and some indifferent.
I shall take time to review my archives to give the whole story of how Terry Boyle went from the Whitehawk gutter to Brighton Antiques trade Hall of Fame.

One quick story:

Back in 1987, at Richards Restaurant Western road Brighton, Terry Boyle, whilst protecting his younger brother Stephan, recieved a Stanley Knife wound to his stomach, which needed 48 stitches for the deep cut. Terry Boyle suffered many years of pain from this Stanley Knife wound, reminding him he was not invincible.

Another story:
When Terry Boyle and his loyal wife Georgina were landlords of the Blue House pub in Brighton when a local bully and gormless thug Micky Douglas was being loud and aggressive.
Terry Boyle stepped in and knocked out Micky Douglas with one punch, causing him to slide down the wall, bang, lights out Micky Douglas.
From then on Terry Boyle was called, amongst other names, Terry "One Punch" Boyle.

Lets go back to May 1984, Terry Boyle was getting ready for his annual four weeks in Lindos Rhodes Greece, when Brian "Herpes" Groves and Danny "The Mong" King burgled a house near Brighton and escaped with several paintings including a Joshua Reynolds. Terry Boyle bought them, offering £5,000 now or £9,000 later, "Herpes" Groves & "The Mong" King took the £5,000 now lol

News report of art theft comitted by Herpes Groves and The Mong King

Brian "Herpes" Groves

Terry Boyle sold them on quickly for £10,000, doubling his money,  to, wait for it, guess who lol

These paintings were later sold, the Joshua Reynolds sold in 1988 for £135,000, then sold on by Colnaghi art dealers for £500,000 and now hangs in Japan in a museum who refuse the hand it back to the rightful owners heirs.

I don’t know why you feel the need to keep writing about my father, especially when you don’t even put a name to your work. You were clearly very jealous of him because this isn’t the first article you have written. If you don’t take this down, I will take legal proceedings against you for slander. Fucking saddo

Chloe may said...

You must lead a very sad life, if you continue to post stories regarding terry based on non factual information we will take legal proceedings out against you. You are no news reporter so stop wasting your time festing behind your computer and get a real job. People like you are such a drain on society , middle aged and still living with there mother no doubt.

Ellie Boyle said...

No chloe he doesn’t live with his mother, he just told me that he was adopted, makes sense. He’s so obsessed with my father because his didn’t want him. Sad sad little man..

Why don’t you tell the story of when Ian “the guv” Frost & Dominic “The Bagpuss” Baker screwed your flat off the London Road and nicked all your precious antiques? When you come up to Highcroft Villas to get your gear back with Terry I heard “The Gov” scarpered with all the money and his mate Stef “the Right Handfull” Plautz give you a dig. When mr Boyle was asked why was he backing up a grass, later he replied “ I only wanted to see if I could buy the parcel!” Ha ha to be a keyboard warrior at your age,Turbo the GRASS. Pathetic.

What about the time when Mearsy Dobby Darren and Paul Davis went to Hull to steal some antique furniture from a hotel, little did they know but Paul “arthouse grass” Hendrie had been there first got his collar felt and told the local plod by way of a trade that the Brighton firm are coming up. The four intrepid burglars all got nicked and remanded 2 to Hull and the other 2 to HMP Scarborough, they was all out in days though
Because all they had to do was name the informant in court the judges hands were tied, he released the four fellas and the grass lost that one!

Paul Hendrie was adopted only just, apparently his Moulscoomb father was looking for a Downs Syndrome baby but they never had any at the orphanage so Mr. Hendrie went for the nearest thing. Paul always thought he should have been adopted by someone family of higher standing a bit more upper class so he always had a problem with the working class. That’s why he became a police informer so he could get people back the nasty snidey way. Also he has a very small penis I’ve heard as is often the case with adopted grasses. That’s why they are so scared of going to prison “shower time” terrifies them!!

The three above comments are from Simon Friend, son of Alan Friend aka as Dobby. Simon Friend lives in Worthing as his gambling means he is always skint, choosing to feed his gambling habit rather than feed his two young children. Simon Friend recalls the first story about Paul Hendry being robbed by Dominic Baker and Ian Frost. Truth is Terry Boyle attended his bedsits where Ian Frost had some of the stolen Hendry antiques. Hendry lashed out at Ian Frost who fled through the window and leaped across to the next door balcony. Stef Plautz just sat there on the sofa quiet as a Church mouse as Hendry and Terry Boyle loaded his antiques into the car. What Simon Friend does not reveal is what happened next, when he was in a car with Paul Hendry and Dixie Dean and saw Dominic Baker. Hendry leaped out of the car and confronted Dominic Baker, who was armed with a piece of wood. Undeterred Paul Hendry opened up Dominic Baker like a can of Tuna, leaving him needing 68 stitches in hand, neck and back wounds inflicted by good old "Stanley" knife.

Second comment: When Lee Meries, Dobby etc went to Hull to rob a hotel of antiques. Well, truth is the intelligence was provided by Uncle Derek Hunt, who gave Paul Hendry time, places etc to pass to Police. Derek Hunt was always the ringmaster, gathering intelligence for Paul Hendry to pass to Police.
A story not mentioned here is when Lee Meries was intending to fly to Australia, he had got a visa by lying about his criminal convictions and Derek Hunt was keen to keep Lee Meries theiving as he sold all the stolen antiques to Derek Hunt. Derek Hunt approachged Paul Hendry and asked him to pass along details of Lee Meries going to Australia to customs so Lee Meries would not be able to leave the UK and Derek Hunt could conhtinue to buy the stolen antiques Lee Meries got.
The third comment seems to have been written when Simon Friend had too much wine and is just a drunken rant.

Furthermore, Simon Friend and Tic Tac, (David Enticnapp) set up Paul Hendry in 1992 by informing to Sussex Police Paul Hendry had stolen art in his house, Tic Tac was a registered Sussex Police Informant, yes one of the infamous 27 registered Police informants from the Brighton Knocker Boys.
Police raided the home of Paul Hendry and took away 48 paintings, two were found to have been stolen and returned the rest to Paul Hendry.
The moral of this tale is Brighton Knocker boys were ruthless in becoming Police informants to protect their own hides, some of the biggest names in Brighton were Police informants and I have a copy of the list of 27.

London gangsters always said if you deal with anyone from Brighton you get:
"Nicked, fucked or both"

You stupid looking cunt how dare you slag my uncle Micky off and lie about Terry knocking him out !!!! Calling him names etc you dirty grass cunt !!!! Poor terry just passed and your writing shit and lies I cannot wait to meet you

Above comment from Westley Douglas.
Westley, go ask anyone who was around the "Blue House" pub back in the 1970's, they will tell you the story of how Terry Boyle knocked out Mickey Douglas,one punch and came by that nickname afterwards.

Another story, Fingers Tony Wadey was in the pub and the phone rang, he answered it. Then he said: "It's someone here who has found the chewed ear of Mickey Douglas" Mickey Douglas was also in the pub and gave an uneducated groaning laugh.

Westley, making threats of an unfortunate nature will get you no-where, other than in trouble with authorities, so please try to refrain from making idle threats, but please, make any other comments you like here.

Paul hendry hiding behind the screen you wrongon - you was driven out of Brighton for being a police informer in the 1980’s you had so many good hidings including one by Stephen Wadey in Sussex Square...your used to tie old ladies up terrifying them while you burgled their homes then you turned police informer

Is it true you did 15 months in HMP Ford for Benifit fraud... do you still claim housing benefits and disability you mug... what a ugly square head cunt you are ....have you come out the closet yet you Homme
Is it true you was in love with Terry Boyle and also fancied Brian Groves you probably still do.
Dirty Grass you could not and did not stab anyone you make up all these fictional stories to feed your own ego and fill them with lies.
You are a very sad piece of shit... the ugliest man on earth

I’ve spoken to lee Meires about what that dirty Paul Hendrie said about his uncle Derek and if anyone wants to know the truth, it was Derek who told Lee and Alan Dobby to get the prosecution to name the informant on the day of the trial and the prosecution refused the judge through the case out. The reason the police did not want to divulge the name of the grass. Paul Hendrie. Nobody believes Hendrie because of his track record Dave Bishop bashed him in the Race Hill for calling him a grass,18 stitches to mouth. Terry Boyle gave Paul a hiding after the incident in Richards where Paul after taking the vile drug Tuinol was prepared to hurt a lovely old man who’s no longer with us by the name of Gordon Bostock.and while we stick to the facts Paul Hendrie has for all his bravado stayed clear of Brighton for years because let’s face it nobody likes a police informant he lives on his own in a little rented house at Pevensey Bay where he forever checks his camera and looks out the window for his old enemies....something he will be doing quite a lot now I’m lead to believe....

Terry Boyle did not come from the Whitehawk gutter you vile mouthed parasite his parents were hard working loving people...not many men could provide for 7 children the way Billy & Rebecca Boyle did - you were adopted Paul Hendrie .... Jealously is a Disease and you should not be speaking I’ll of the dead when his family are grieving his loss especially due to the global pandemic they cannot have have the large funeral that he deserves with his family & Friends. You would not be writing these lies in your articles if he was still with us. Stealing private family photos from his granddaughters Facebook. You sad lonely individual hopefully you will get your karma

Oi Grass, I remember well when you came up to Highcroft Villas after me and Dom Baker nicked your stuff out of your flat. I also remember you trying to hit me with a ghurkas knife a kukri and not a mark on me correct? I also remember flying over the balcony with my pockets full of money not only from the sale of your wine cooler etc but some other bits and pieces also. You took from my flat a Thomas Bush Hardy smudge and two bronzes the samurai and the two fellas wrestling bollocky right? At the time I always wondered why Terry was there as I considered him a better friend to me than the two of you. I remember being at Mark Kenyon’s flat after this incident and phoning Terry asking him “why did he back you?” He told me whilst all this gear was flying about loose he only wanted to see if he could buy any, this is the truth. I also recall your piano stool and small Georgian bureau was downstairs in Highcroft villas after ringing you we agreed to trade the picture and the two bronzes for the piano stool and bureau again fact. I also remember agreeing to have a straight fight with you anytime Paul and to this day still would. You sent Sixie over to collect your gear because now without Terry you was a bit more exposed we exchanged at the little car port underneath your flat. My mate Stef Plautz was cut from a different cloth from you and died not long after October 1987 when all this occurred. I still miss him. Keep my name out of your mouth Paul please. I won’t make any idle threats because as you know that has never been me. This is just to set the record straight. Ian Frost.

Art Hostage said...

I have spoken to Simon Friend who assures me he is not the author of the three comments I accused him of writing.
I firmly believe Simon Friend and would like say I am very sorry for accusing him in the first place.

However, I have found out the authors are a team of Lee Meries, MB, and Ian Frost, with Uncle Derek Hunt stirring the pot, as usual, in the background.

So it’s alright for you to coat people Paul calling Brian Herpes Danny a mong and all the stuff you said about Terry when he wasn’t even interned yet. Looking back you never had me did ya? Never managed to grass me, got my two bronzes back and the tbh picture,told you we only got the three smudges and nine bronzes out of that bit of work. It was way more! So all in all seeing as the last time I saw your ugly mug I was going over George Rixs balcony with over ten large in my hod even to this day makes me �� ps you didn’t get to far with Tony Majotta in the High court over that half mil painting either did you? No my good friend Johnny McNeil slaughtered you in that one too. You don’t track down million pound smudges stolen in Boston you worthless individual you turn over the dole and anybody can beat a charge I did 3.43 million drug conspiracy biggest one in Brighton ever! You got sentenced went to lewes went straight on the numbers told them your status and got to Ford. That’s the difference between me and you vast fucking chasacasm! ( I won’t be coming on here again seen enough). Ian.

Paul the grass Hendry lives at Seawards Seaville Road Pevensey Bay next to the Hotel big pebbledash wall around it!

Paul this is lee here firstly I was not one of the authors but I have got something to say to you, the bit of work me and Dobby went on in Scarborough you 1000000% was the informant on that case and the only reason we got out of it was my uncle Derek told me and Dobby to ask our defence to ask the prosecution to name the informant in court as we know the police acted on information received because that was in the deposition statement and six months to a year before we was nicked you was arrested by the Scarborough police for stealing gold coins of an elderly gentleman so what you done you traded us because miraculously your case was dropped for giving us up.because the prosecution wouldn’t name you because you was too important for them at the time as you were giving bodies up left right and centre in Brighton. Secondly my uncle Derek showed you some Lowry’s with the intentions of you purchasing them but they was out of your price range so you left them when you left Derek’s house who turns up half hour later DS and DC Grundy and Muggleton and when they entered the house they went straight to the cooker where the Lowry’s were hidden behind and you knew that also you put Grundy and Mugsy onto Steve Paul for selling drugs and they bugged his car Steve found it and gave it to his solicitor. You should not use Twitter to call people names and slag them off cos remember the last time you done that Dave Bishop done you in the race hill pub with a cosh and give you 28 stitches inside your horrible mouth I could keep on telling these stories but all I say to you Paul is there has been a lot of people in Brighton wanting to know your address and what you should remember is I’ve been to your house before. So stop all the nonsense. Lee meires

Hendry started his career as the stop and go sign man on a tarmac gang. Apparently the gaffer was so impressed with his technique that he was offered the job for life. Instead of accepting that offer he decided to go into the antique game and subsequently end up being a supergrass. The moral of the story is once you have reached your limit don't get ideas above your station!

The tarmac story is so true
