From the Deal, Walmer & Sandwich Mercury, 9 June, 1865.


Monday before the Mayor, Capt. Stewart, R.N. and R. L. Harrison, Esq.

Marie Trengrove was charged with obstructing the highway.

D. J. Warman, head constable of Sandwich, said: "The prisoner had been lodging at the "Star," and on her leaving on Saturday last, she came to me about seven o'clock in the evening, requesting me to go with her to the "Star" to get her things away. I went with he. About eight o'clock, I saw her sitting on a chair in the middle of the highway, in Strand Street, near the "Alma," she obstructed the highway and caused a great many people to congregate. I requested her to go five or six times, and she would not. I have cautioned her before. She was drunk.

The prisoner in defence said: It was to protect my furniture, I did what I did. I got home from Sheerness on Saturday afternoon, and my landlord refused to let me stop in my lodgings.

She was sentenced to 7 days' imprisonment with hard labour.
