George Boddy was accused of assaulting Mary Frost when summoned before the magistrates 17th May 1845. Houghton, the sheriff's officer had accompanied Frost to the house to remove goods according to an alleged agreement. The defendant had resisted any proceeding of the kind and a scuffle had ensued. Several witnesses entirely contradicted Houghton's statement and the case was dismissed.
