John Dover, the Chartist, appeared in Court Monday 21st March 1842 and confessed that he had been discharged, some four years previously, of a debt of £116. In this new case he was owed small sums by 23 named people, mostly for beer, he had agreed to pay his solicitor £6 10s for his discharge. He lodged at the house of Mrs. Humphreys and had no furniture, only a loom. He paid 9s a week for his lodgings. He was discharged.

43 year old Charlotte Humphrey appeared at the City Quarter Sessions, Tuesday 23rd June 1846 accused of receiving twenty horns and twelve ounces of silk, knowing them to have been stolen from Messrs. Towler & Co.
In April, Edmund Drewell, warehouseman had suspected the theft and policeman John Mortar had searched the Kings Head. Several horns of silk had been found concealed in a handkerchief. Humphrey claimed that the silk had been left at the house by a man named Dover. Mr. Drewell confidently identified the silk as being the stolen property.
Charlotte Humphrey was sentenced to six months' imprisonment.
