On 17th June 1837, Robert Malin, aged 23, and Walter Norbury, aged 22, had caused a disturbance in the beerhouse where Mr. and Mrs Hall were refreshing themselves. Mrs. Pigg went for a constable and as she returned, she saw Malin and Norbury leaving the house of Mr. & Mrs Hall. Upon returning home, Mrs. Annis Hall discovered money had been stolen from upstairs. Mr. Hall claimed ten sovereigns and five shillings were missing.
In custody, seemingly at the Anchor, Malin confessed to his guardian that it was his sixth time in prison, but the missing money did not amount to the sum claimed. He asked that his career not be mentioned since he would be deported.
Upon the evidence that a shoe print matched that of Malin's shoes, the jury found both prisoners guilty.
The learned Judge directed the death penalty for both.

William Green was charged with careless and negligent driving on 15th February 1868. Farmer John West claimed that he was driving a pony and cart from Weeting to Hockwold on 17th September 1868 when Green came up behind him at a speed of ten to twelve miles per hour. There was a collision and West was thrown from his cart and damage was sustained. A witness said that he doubted that Mr. Green's horse was capable of more than six miles per hour. Another witness named Churchyard said he was doing ten miles an hour and could not keep up with Green. The accused had attended an auction in the day and claimed he had only drunk three normal glasses of wine.
His Honour thought it was a very bad case and said there was no defence.
£5 damages were to be paid and costs.
