On Tuesday 9th August 1859, Robert Osborne was charged with selling beer at illegal hours. Mrs Osborne appeared in court to represent her husband.
On the previous Sunday afternoon, at about five minutes past four o'clock, Police-sergeant Nary, accompanied by constable Mansell, called at the house and saw three men drinking. Nary proceeded upstairs where four men were found smoking. Osborne was caught descending the stairs with pots in his hand. A quart pot of beer was standing on the counter.
In defence, Mrs Osborne said that the steam ship `Robert Owen' had arrived from Yarmouth and the captain had given the beer to a man who had assisted in turning the vessel round.
The magistrates agreed that, although this was a bad case, a first case was usually settled by a fine of one shilling plus costs and they would keep to that principle.
Mrs. Osborne thanked the magistrates and paid the fine, but made the mistake of mumbling that it would have been better if she had paid the officers a shilling.
Overheard by one of the magistrates, she was recalled and ordered to pay 20 shillings plus costs.
