George Andrews

Trespass, November 1861

Kettering Petty Sessions. January 1862.

Rushton.— George Andrews, of Desborough, was charged with a similar game trespass [trespassing in pursuit of game], on the 20th of November last, on lands in Rushton parish.

— At the petty sessions three weeks' ago this case was brought forward, and adjourned through defendant professing to bring forward a person named Frederick Morris, who would exonerate him by stating who was the real offender.

— Defendant, however, did not appear.

— On the magistrates interrogating Frederick Morris to whether he knew anything at all about the matter, he said nothing whatever nor had Andrews ever mentioned the circumstance to him.

— Defendant not being present to answer the charge, was fined £1 10s., and costs £1 3s. 8d., or six weeks' imprisonment with hard labour.
