South Eastern Gazette, 01 January 1856.

Stephen Weeden, landlord of the "Falcon Tavern," Week-street, was charged with having allowed persons to assemble in his house and premises on Sunday last during the hour of divine worship. About twenty individuals, principally belonging to Maidstone, had been see by Sergeant Hills and constable Beale in defendant's skittle ground. There were four quart and one pint pots on the ground. The parties were much crowded together, and were sitting in each other's laps.

Defendant enquired whether his house had not hitherto borne a good character ?

Superintendent Blundell, in reply, said that defendant had been in the habit of keeping his house open during the hours of divine service.

Sergeant Hills further slated that just as he was coming away from the premises three additional persons were entering by a side door.

In answer to the Mayor, defendant said rather saucily that he might as well plead guilty to the charge as not guilty, as it would be all the same.

Fined 40s., coats 9s. The fine was paid.
