LRSM 5 May 1854

Boston Petty Sessions 28 April
Eliz. BENEWORTH failed in proving her case against Mr. THORNALLY, of Mount
Pleasant. She had no corroborative evidence: the application was
consequently dismissed.
An order was made on Henry KEAL for the payment of Betsy BELL of 2s. a week
towards the support of an illegitimate child.

Horncastle Petty Sessions 28 April
Sarah Ann PARKER, of Horncastle, widow, applied for an order of affiliation
on John POUCHER, of Manchester, baker: order made for 1s. 6d. per week from
the date of application; £3 7s. costs.
Maria POGSON, of Horncastle, singlewoman, applied for a similar order on
John NUNDY, of Wispington, farmer. Mr. WALESBY, of Horncastle, appeared on
behalf of complainant: Mr. C. INGOLDBY, of Louth, on behalf of Nundy. The
Magistrates considered the evidence so very contradictory that they
dismissed the application, and ordered Pogson to be taken into custody on a
charge of perjury. The depositions were taken against her, and she was fully
committed to take her trial at the next assizes at Lincoln.
