Preston Chronicle 13th March 1858
John Earnshaw, landlord of the Prince Albert public house, Pleasant Street, was summoned for supplying drink during prohibited hours on Sunday. Police Detective Welch and PC Swarbrick were passing the defendant's house at about half past eight on Sunday morning when they saw two men enter by the front door. The Constable followed and saw three men standing besides the bar. There was a quantity of glasses standing in the bar with ale in them, and there was also a gallon jug with about a quart of new-drawn beer in it. He told the landlord that he should report him, when he remarked, "Very well."
Mr. Blackhurst, who defended, called the men, who stated that no drink was supplied to them, and they had gone there for the purpose of having a walk with the landlord. The case was dismissed.
