LAW & ORDER – Disgraceful proceedings at Warrenby

Accreditation The Redcar and Saltburn-by-the-Sea Gazette 04/05/1877


Guisborough Petty Sessions – Charlotte Mason and Hannah Elizabeth Mason, mother and daughter, were charged with assaulting Elizabeth Johns, married woman, at Warrenby, on the 26 ult. The assault seem to have been of an unusually ferocious nature. The quarrel had commenced as usual, about “the children;” these having disagreed at play, the parents had fallen out, and had a fling at each other. The complainant alleged that the girl had rushed against her and knocked her down, when the mother came up, and struck her with a brick. In this case a lad 17 years of age, as he stated he could not read. The older defendant was fined 10s, and costs, and the girl 5s, and costs.
