1852/George William Parsons/../../../Archdeacons Directory

May 1856/Thomas Pepper, a hawker of fish, was charged with stealing 12s 6d, the money of Joseph Rawlings, of Union Street, Borough, who deposed that at about eleven o'clock on that morning he was at the Crown and Cushion, High street, and paid for some beer, of which the prisoner partook. He then went into the tap room and fell asleep, and when he awoke he missed the money from his pocket. No other person besides witness and the prisoner was in the tap room.
Mrs Parsons, landlady of the Crown and Cushion, deposed she saw several half crowns in the hand of the prosecutor when he paid for the beer.
The potman of the Crown and Cushion was examined, but merely proved that the parties were drinking together, and as no other evidence was produced, the prisoner was discharged./../../../Kentish Independent
