Crumlin Petty Sessions
Assault Case – Held on Monday 29th July 1889 before R.E. Rutherford, R.M. and Captain McClintock, J.P.

Issac Walker, of British, summoned Alexander Taylor, of the same place, for having assaulted him upon the 1st July. There was also a cross-case by Taylor against Walker.

Mr. Wilkins appeared for Taylor, and Mr. Williamson for Walker.

It appeared from the evidence that the parties occupied the relative position of father-in-law and son-in-law, and that an old feud existed between them owing to the father-in-law’s allegation that the son-in-law had deserted his wife, for which offence he had been committed to her Majesty’s prison.

After hearing the evidence on both sides, the Magistrates dismissed both cases, advising the parties to go home, and live on better terms in the future.
