James EDMONDSON, landlord of
the HYDE PARK INN, St. Paul's Road,
was ordered to find bail for his future
good conduct, or go to prison for
21 days, for assaulting his wife on
Sunday night last.
Preston Chronicle  31st August 1861
On Monday 1st December, a young man named 
Thomas Edmondson, was charged with assaulting
his father, James Edmondson, with a knife. The 
prosecutor keeps the Hyde Park Tavern, and said
that his son returned home on Sunday night, and
became very unruly and unmanageable, but he did
not want to press the charge. 

He was asked by the Bench, "Well, what did he do?"
The prosecutor replied, "Well, he was making an
attempt to strike at me with a carving knife. He was
rather drunk. He broke the knife in the attempt. He
did cut me on the hand, but I was not hurt much, as I
caught hold of the knife with my hand. I had been
blowing up at him. He fetched the knife out of the
kitchen. The kitchen is downstairs, and this occurred
upstairs. I was in bed at the time. It was about half
past eleven and I was a bit frightened.

The prisoner told the court that his parents had been
rowing, and that they were always rowing - they are very 
frequent. His language against her is abominable.

The Bench told them they "were a disreputable set"
and ordered the prisoner to find bail for 12 months for 
his good behaviour, himself in £40 and two sureties
of £20 each, or one months imprisonment.
