COUNTY COURT: Paul Catterall  v  Margaret Holdroyd

The Plaintiff sued the defendant for £25, being one year's rent for a house and shop in Butler Street, which was due in December 1852. Paul Catterall Junior appeared for the plaintiff.

It appeared that the property of the defendant's father had been distrained by Mr Threlfall, Spirit Merchant, for liquors supplied to him when he kept the Bush Inn, Butler Street, but that distraint was made on the 3rd January last, when Holdroyd was living in a house in Bow Lane.

Rainford, the execution bailiff of the Court, had sold goods, which he valued at £5, to Mr. Holdroyd's daughter, the defendant in this action, who afterwards took the house in Butler Street, which was let to her by Mr. Catterall himself. Mr. Ascroft, who was retained by Mr. Threlfall, gave the opinion that there had been some collusion in the taking of the house by  Miss Holdroyd, for the purpose of defrauding the creditors of her father.

As there was some doubt as to the age of Miss Holdroyd, His Honour said he did not think there had been a bona fide letting; but he would adjourn the case for the production of further evidence.

A SECRET MARRIAGE AT PRESTON
- STRANGE REVELATIONS -
ADULTERY AND DESERTION
In the Divorce Court, a few days ago, the case of Cullimore v Cullimore was heard.
There was also an undefended suit, in which the wife sued for divorce, on the grounds of her husband's adultery and desertion.
The parties were married secretly at Preston in 1854, the petitioner being at the time under age. After the marriage they resided for four days at the Bush Hotel there, when they separated, and the petitioner returned to her friends. Soon after that the respondent committed adultery with several women, one of whom lived with him for several years, and had several children by him.
In 1860 he went to America, but had since returned. He had never offered to take his wife to cohabitation with him, nor given anything for her support. 
The desertion and adultery having been proved, the Court pronounced a decree nisi.
