Police-constable Burton charged Charles Tofts on Friday 28th August 1863 of permitting drunkenness in his house on 22nd August.
Pleading guilty, Tofts said he had got the rough company out of his house but could not prevent them making a noise in the street. He said it was his first offence and hoped it would be his last. The spokesman for owners, Bullards, said that the house should be kept in an orderly manner.
A fine of 10s, mitigated from £5, was imposed, this being a first offence. Costs of 11s were in addition to the fine.

Charles Tofts was fined 20s with 13s costs on Friday 2nd September 1864 following police-constable Hall discovering persons drinking in his house at five minutes before eleven on the morning of Sunday 21st August.


It was reported at the Petty Sessions held Wednesday 1st September 1865 that the licence was transferred from Mr. Tofts to Mr. Skipper. The magistrates expressing the hope that the new landlord would keep the house in a better manner than his predecessor.


Licensee Isaac Skippon sued pensioner Frederick Cole for the sum of £3 1s 5d which was for board and lodging, cash lent and beer supplied between 17th February and 3rd April 1866. Although the quoted sum was £2 short of the actual money owed, Mr. Skippon asked that the proceedings be continued on Thursday 21st February 1867 since all parties were present before the magistrates.
Mr. Cole was described as a `Veteran Son of Mars' who had served 21 years in the 1st. Royals. The accused `gallantly defended the claim and with a spirit which that, if necessary, he would be ready to do so at the point of a sword........'  However he was beaten in this uneven encounter since four witnesses were against him. He was ordered to pay the £3 1s 5d and costs, at instalments of 10s a month, on the understanding that there would be no proceedings for non-payment until after his usual quarterly pension day.
