In court Monday 12th April 1869 it was heard that Isaac Warne, a rough looking fellow, had visited the house on the previous Saturday, between the hours of six and seven o'clock in the evening.  Warne had been refused drink when he entered the house and had been ejected from the house by Mr. Richardson and three assistants. It was claimed that he had used his fist to strike licensee J. R. Richardson a blow to the head and promised to `knock his head off'.
Warne protested his innocence and said that he bore no malice. He appealed to one of the magistrates, Mr. Threw, to speak up for him `since I nursed you when you were a baby', which caused great amusement in court, but Mr. Threw declined to answer.
Ordered to find two sureties of £20 each, and bound to keep the peace towards Mr. Richardson, under his own recognizances of £40, or be committed to prison for six months, Warnes said to the magistrates ` I will fetch a cart-load of sureties'
