Preston Chronicle  28th September 1878
John and Alfred Sandiford, two very respectable-
looking young men, answered a charge that they
had assaulted their mother, Ann Sandiford, landlady
of the SPINNERS' ARMS public house, on Saturday
night last. It appeared that Alfred Sandiford, about
17 years of age, lived with his mother; he would not
work; and his mother would only be willing to keep
him, only he would not conduct himself properly.

On the evening named he came home, kicked up a 
row with one of the customers, thrashed and abused
his mother, and subsequently fetched his brother
John, who also assaulted his mother. The case was

John was bound over to keep the peace for six
months, himself in £20 and two other sureties of
£10 each, in default 1 month imprisonment.

Alfred was ordered to find two sureties in £10 each for
 6 months, with one month imprisonment in default.
