On Friday 11th September 1863, Mrs Ruth Mackley was charged by Mrs. Bidewell of St. Benedicts, with using language calculated to provoke a breach of the peace. Ordered to find a surety of £5 to keep the peace.

19th August 1864 - Mrs. Ruth Mackley appeared in court `with her countenance disfigured' by two dreadful black eyes, to prefer charges of assault against Betsy Rix, of St. Martins At Oak. Rix paid the fine of 10s with a further 11s costs, rather than face 21 days detention.

On Tuesday 16th October 1866 it was heard that Mrs Fenn, wife of Henry Fenn, landlord of the (Old) GOAT, went to the VINE in search of her husband and entered the house with Mrs. Tubby who was also in search of her husband. Upon entering, Mrs. Fenn was encountered by Mrs. Durrant who objected to Mr. Fenn enticing her husband into the GOAT. Mrs. Durrant flew at Mrs. Fenn's bonnet, pulling it off along with some hair, and trampled it with her feet, completely spoiling it. Mr. William Carter separated the combatants. Mr. Durrant said he was upstairs at the time of the confrontation and could not say who started the fight. The claim for 7s damages was unable to be proved and the case was a nonsuit, without costs.
