Todays Police News

The Cowman and his Wife:

William Swarbrook, of 1 Balloon-houses, Wollaton, was summoned to show cause why an order should not be made upon him for the maintenance of his wife, Sarah Ann Swarbrook, of 28 Wollaton Road, whom it was alleged he had deserted. The wife stated that she had been married seven years to the defendant, and there were five children. Her husband turned her out at Christmas, threatening her at the same time with violence if she did not go.  Defendant stated that his wife was very dirty in her habits, and that she allowed the children to get into filthy conditions. He further alleged misconduct against her. Evidence was given on behalf of the defendant but the misconduct referred to was not of such a character as to free the defendant from the obligation in regard to maintenance.  The magistrates advised the parties to endeavour to live peacefully, and Mr Carver admonished the wife seriously as to her future conduct. The defendant said that he would prefer to make his wife an allowance. “ he had tried her so many times” He was a cowman at Wollaton and only earned 16/- per week. The children were with him. An order for the payment of 2/6 per week was made.
