AN OFFENDING BEER-SELLER
William Swarbrick, landlord of the Guild Tavern, Park Road,
was charged with supplying drink during prohibited hours. It
appears that about twenty minutes to eleven o'clock on Sunday
morning, the 3rd inst., the defendant's son was seen by P.D. Dawson 
and P.D. Charnley, to supply drink to a woman at the back door, 
which she took away in a bottle. The case was proved, and
the defendant was fined 20s and costs.
Preston Guardian 16th December 1871

MARY ELLEN HELENA WILLIAMS, a hawker, was
charged with being drunk and disorderly the previous
evening, in Mrs. Heap's Arkwright Arms.
PC Eteson had been called in to expel her, and when
inside, the prisoner, who was drunk, was striking at
a man named Foster, landlord of the Guild Tavern,
Park Road, with a pair of scissors. She would have
blinded him but for the officer, who diverted the blow, 
which he received in the shoulder. The charge of
drunkenness was withdrawn, but she was committed to 
14 days for the assault.
When leaving court she pleaded to be allowed a fire
in her cell.
