Tuesday 13th December 1864 - Ann E. Hardiment, of St. Martin at Oak, a young woman of the unfortunate class, was charged by licensee J. Huggins, of wilfully breaking eight squares of glass in the window of his house. At ten minutes past mid-day, she had been refused service at the house and ejected. Hardiment admitted breaking the window by removing a boot. She claimed she was forcibly removed by Mr. and Mrs. Huggins due to `an existing variance'. Mrs Huggins had seized her by the hair on her head and removed a large handful, which was presented in court. Her face bore the marks of `rough feminine usage'.
Fined 1 shilling, plus 28 shillings to pay for the damage and expenses, in default she was committed to gaol for a month.
