1865 - Ale charged at 2½d per glass (Pint)


John Friday Fenn, Licensed Victualler was recorded in the London Gazette as bankrupt on Friday 20th August 1869.

Recorded as the OXFORD TAVERN on Wednesday 6th December 1865 when William Lee, Thomas Sleath and Thomas Matthews appeared before the Magistrates charged with duping barmaid Ellen Curtis of the sum of 19s 4½d.
On previous night the accused had entered the house at about 11pm in the evening. They ordered five glasses of ale and Lee insisted that he would pay for all with a sovereign.
Lee put the sovereign on the counter and Curtis went to get the change which she then handed to Lee.
The three then immediately left the house without finishing the ale and taking the sovereign with them.
The Chief Constable said there were several other similar charges against the three and they were remanded in custody.

The three were found guilty Monday 8th January 1866 of obtaining money by false pretences. Matthews received twelve calendar months imprisonment. The other two each received five years penal servitude.
