On Wednesday 16th March 1853, 19 year old William Ladell, was charged, and found guilty of stabbing George Parker, with intent to murder.
On 14th October 1852 he had entered the premises in a quarrelsome mood and had knocked glasses from a table, refusing to pay for the damage, the landlord put Ladell's hat in his cellar and carried the troublemaker off the premises. Ladell then knocked Parker down, entered the house again and struck Parker on the head. In the ensuing scuffle Parker was stabbed twice.
The sentence was four months' imprisonment with hard labour.
