SOVEREIGN STEAM PACKET 1845

The Eastern Daily Press of Thursday 17th May 1877 reported :-
Amy THOMPSON was summoned before Yarmouth Police Court for threatening Hannah LODGE. Mr DIVER appeared for complainant, and Mr WILTSHIRE for defendant. From complainant's evidence it appeared that she was a married woman, and was at that time living at the Steam Packet Tavern, waiting on Mr STEELE's (the landlord) wife, who was ill. On Wednesday, April 25th, when she was in the bar, the defendant, who is sister to Mrs STEELE, came in and commenced to abuse her. She retired into the bar parlor, but defendant followed her and again abused her and also threatened her. She ran upstairs, and defendant came to the bottom of the stairs and again threatened to do for her. She asked the defendant might be bound over to keep the peace. Defendant was bound over in two sureties of £10 each to keep the peace for three months.
