At the Norwich City Sessions held Friday 16th July 1824 it was heard that William Snowe, previously of the Apollo Gardens at Yarmouth, was accused of assaulting Frederic Murlin, a boy of about 15 years old. The lad had been keeping the Bishops Bridge Toll-gate on behalf of his father and claimed that Snowe had attempted to pass through without paying the half-penny toll. Upon the accusation, Snowe was claimed to have said that if he repeated it, he would be knocked down. The claim was repeated and a blow was said to have been struck. The landlord of the MOON & STARS and another person corroborated the young mans story.
The jury however declared that Snowe was not guilty and the Foreman added that they were of the opinion that no assault had been committed.
The Court chairman advised the jury that it was not their province to give opinion on the subject and to only give a verdict of `guilty' or `not guilty'.
The verdict was to the astonishment of all who were present.
