WALSINGHAM - Petty Sessions On Monday (19 Nov 1860)

William Garrett , aged 61 years, who keeps a public-house called the Leicester Arms, at Wells, and who by trade is a blacksmith, was charged with stealing about five stones of new bar iron , the property of Mr, W. Tyzack of Wells, ironmonger. From the evidence Charles Wharf who is in the prosecutor's employ appeared that he saw the prisoner in his master's premises on the evening of the 12th inst, between five and six o'clock. His suspicions being aroused from what he had seen of the prisoner's movements he watched him, and saw him take a bar of iron out of the yard. Information was given to the police, who searched Garrett's premises on the following morning and found the iron which was now produced and identified by the prosecutor. - The prisoner, who wished to be dealt with summarily, pleaded guilty to the charge. The bench strongly animadverted upon a person in the prisoners position in life committing such a crime, and sentenced him to three months imprisonment

At the Petty Sessions held Monday 5th September 1870, Thomas Applegate was charged by the Commissioners of Inland Revenue with selling spirits by retail, without a licence. A penalty of £50 had been incurred.
An officer of the Revenue had called in and asked for sixpennyworth of gin, which was served.
A witness supported Mr. Applegate in saying that the money had been paid beforehand and the gin sent for, at the request of the officer. This the officer denied.
The Bench said they would take time to consider the case since they had nothing to do with the way that the Government performed its duties, but they thought that entrapment was not right.

At the Petty Sessions held Monday 19th September 1870, the Bench dismissed the case, however Mr. Hudson, the Supervisor of Excise, gave notice of appeal to the General Quarter Sessions, feeling himself aggrieved by the decision.
