1858 - 1865 RICHARD COE A beerhouse keeper accused Wednesday 29th March 1865 of setting fire to a stack of straw which was in the adjoining yard. The stack was the property of baker James Taylor and was against the wall separating the two properties. The fire had occurred on the 24th October 1864. Mr. Coe admitted that he had been in trouble before, having stolen rabbits, robbed packmen and a month previously, had been charged with stealing pipes. He denied having anything to do with the fire, although there had been some disputes between the two parties. The jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty, which received a round of applause from those present in Court. His Lordship said such a manifestation was highly improper since the jury had only done their duty.

On Thursday 30th March 1865, beerhouse keeper Richard Coe, age 59, was arraigned for stealing six scaffold cords, a chisel, several pieces of wood and a bag of nails. The property of John William Beeton, it had been stolen on 27th October 1864. Found guilty, Mr. Coe was sentenced to six calendar months' imprisonment, with hard labour.
