From the Sussex Express, 11th May 1861

ANN DAVIES and Richard Miller were charged by Mr William Underwood, innkeeper, of Glynde, with being drunk, quarrelsome, and disorderly, in the Trevor Arms on the 6th instant. The female admitted the charge, but the male prisoner denied it.

It appeared that the two prisoners, along with another not in custody, went into the prosecutor's house and ordered some beer, which they drank, and then refused to pay; they also behaved in a very riotous manner, the female particularly. She used disgusting language, broke a pot, and both refused to leave the house. In consequence of this they were given into custody, and whilst being taken to Lewes the conduct of the woman was of the most outrageous kind; and it was also stated that she had committed damage to the cell in which she had been confined.

The female, who, it seemed, had only been liberated from prison on the day when the above offence was committed, was adjudged to pay a fine of 20s for being drunk and riotous, or go to prison for a month; and for the damage done in the lock-up a further fine of 12s, or another month's imprisonment. The male prisoner was ordered to be discharged.
