On Monday last, a man named Thomas Brown was committed
to the House of Correction for 3 months, on the charge of having,
on the previous night, violently assaulted Margaret Smith, of the
Fleetwood Arms, Marsh Lane. Brown, we understand, has
frequently been before the Magistrates on such charge.
So ferocious was he in his attack on Mrs. Smith, that he nearly
bit her finger off.

ADJOURNED MEETING OF PIG-OWNERS
On Monday evening last, the pig-owners, who some
time ago formed themselves into a society, met at the
house of Mr. James Rigg, Fleetwood Arms, in order that
they might hear a statement of the condition of the Society's
funds. It appears that they had about £7, which is lodged in
the Messrs Roskell and Arrowsmith's Bank, and which is to
be used in defending parties summoned for nuisances
alleged to arise from pig-keeping, providing a nuisance, in
their opinion, does not exist.
Preston Chronicle 27th April 1850
A man named Whittle was charged with stealing
some iron, but the evidence against him being an
incomplete state, he was accused of purloining a
bagatelle ball from the house of Mrs. Rigg, the
Fleetwood Arms, Marsh Lane.
The stolen article was missed by the prosecutrix,
along with a similar ball, on the 24th May, at which
time the prisoner was in the habit of frequenting her
inn. When arrested by the police, it was found in
Whittle's possession. It is valued at 5s.
Committed for trial.
