Samuel Cragg, labourer and George Holmes, joiner, both of Quorndon, were convicted of an assault upon a hawker named William Wadham of Loughborough and fined 5s each and costs, or 14 days hard labour. The assault took place at The Bull's Head, Quorndon where it appears the complainant and his wife asked to be served with some liquor, but were refused. On their remonstrating, it was alleged Holmes interfered and struck the defendant (complainant?), and it was said that both defendants threw water over the man and his wife when in the street. PC Higgs spoke to the latter statement, and said he took the man and woman away out of the way of the defendants.
