A GIN DRINKER
At the Town Hall on Thursday, Margery Smith
was charged with helping herself to gin and not
paying for the liquor at the Bee Hive public house
in Marsh Lane, Preston. 
The Magistrates told her that she was too fond of gin ,
and fined her in the sum of five shillings.
Margery denied being fond of gin-twist, but
confessed to a liking for a drop of ale.

VAGRANCY
Two boys named James Hunt and Edward Nightingale, were 
charged with sleeping in a bake-house in Bow Lane, they not
having obtained permission of the tenant to go therein.
Hunt, who had been before the court on seven previous occasions, 
was discharged on promising to do differently in future.
Nightingale said he had no home to go to. He was the son of 
Thomas Nightingale, the former landlord of the Bee Hive Inn, 
Marsh Lane. His mother was dead, and his father would not
provide for him, or even give him a night's lodgings. He had been
for some time in the workhouse.
Mr. Gibbons (Chief Constable) was requested by the Bench to
see Nightingale's father, and ask him to support his son.
He was discharged.

The above article was contributed by Janet Davis and Lorna Ivory, who are
researching the same family. Many thanks both.
BOOSTER:  It would seem that a 'booster' was a part of a horse-drawn carriage,
being a raised area to 'boost' the elevation.
Unless someone know differently.
