Before the magistrates Wednesday 28th November 1866, Mary Ann Thompson was accused of abusing and scandalising landlord Robert Webster.
On the Monday, Mrs Thompson had found her fifteen year old son in the house gambling. She said that both of her sons had been enticed into the house and encouraged to gamble and drink at all hours of the night. Her young son refusing to leave the house, Mrs Thompson said he was the ruin of her boys and was a receiver of stolen goods (in the form of vegetables taken to him by the boys, without permission).
Mrs Webster struck her in the mouth and turned her out of the house.
Mrs Thompson said that she had watched the house and it was open at all times of the night and was improperly conducted.
It was decided that although under great provocation, the accused was not justified in her actions and the charges would be dropped if she paid the costs of the summons.
This she refused to do and said she would not pay a farthing.
She was ordered to find a surety of £5 and to keep the peace for three months.
The magistrates ordered the police to keep a watch on the house.
