CANTERBURY POLICE COURT.—Thursday.

This was an adjourned day for granting licences, there being on the bench the Mayor, Aldermen Cooper, Brent, and Plummer, and Mr. Sprakeling.

Mr. Charles, who had applied for a licence for his "Divan," in St. Margaret's-Street, was told that, as it was an inconvenient place to have a licensed house, it must be refused.

 

Kentish Gazette, 6 January 1852.

CANTERBURY POLICE COURT. Monday.

Three beer sellers, Walter Charles, St. Margaret's-street; ("Divan") Mrs, Forbes, of the "Odd Fellow's Arms," St. Peter's-place; and John Murphy, of the "Carpenters Arms," Black Griffin-lane, were summoned for infringement of the law, the first for having his house open beyond the prescribed hour at night, and the other two for having company in their house on the Sunday morning. The first mentioned was fined 1, and 10s. costs; and what added to the gravity of his offence was, though it appeared no part of the charge, that some of the magistrates, whose duty it is to preserve and see to the observance of the law, were breakers of it. Murphy was fined 10s. and costs, and Mrs. Forbes' case dismissed as not being complete, the company having only just entered her house, and not had time to obtain liquor; beside which, the plausible excuse was devised that they had merely come in to warm themselves.
