Maidstone Telegraph - Saturday 11 October 1862.

Mrs. Mary Cook, landlady of a beer house at the East Malling, was convicted on unlawfully allowing gaming in her house, contrary to the statute.

Defendant pleaded ignorance, but it was shown by the police officer that a number of boys were regularly in the habit of assembling at her house to play at a game called "nine-pins," on a table, and another game vulgarly known as "shove halfpenny." These games were played for beer which was served them by the defendant herself, and there was a good deal of betting for halfpence constantly going on. The bench fined her 3, and refused to allow any time in which to pay.
