In court Monday 30th September 1850, Welsh Harper of Helhoughton, was charged by shrimp seller Mark Herrold, of assault without provocation. On 9th September they were both in a public house at Helhoughton and Harper had discovered a false bottom in Herrold's measure. Not liking to be cheated, Mr. Harper had broken the measure and `wrung complainant's nose.' Upon production of a circular piece of wood, Herrold admitted he had fitted it to the measure. The case was dismissed.
