At the East Dereham Court, Saturday 6th August 1859, Mr. H. T. Sturley attempted to recover 6s, the alleged value of a vinegar cask, from licensee Mr. Joseph Strance (Strange ?).
Mr. Strance was away when the summons was served and had not yet returned and so was represented by Mrs. Strance. His Honour said that the case could not continue since she did not appear with the consent, or even the knowledge of her husband. Later that day Mrs. Stance returned to the court and sought advice from the Judge. She related that having not being allowed to give evidence, she had shown, outside the court, papers proving that the cask had been despatched, to Mr. Sturley. He had proceeded to snatch the papers from her and tear them into pieces. Two persons accompanied her before the Judge and had witnessed the event. One of them was Postman Thomas Askew, who had delivered the cask to the Litcham Bull as directions received from Mr. Sturley. The Judge advised Mrs. Stance to lay the facts before a magistrate, by whom a summons would be issued against Mr. Sturley, for he had committed felony. Mrs. Stance thanked His Honour and then retired.
