Handsworth Herald, 15th November 1890

William Peddingham, Perry Barr was charged with being drunk in the Birchfield Road, on Tuesday last.  Defendants conduct in the court caused considerable amusement.  He sat down at the solicitor’s table when his case was called on, but was immediately requested to stand.  He at once expressed himself willing to do so.  Later on he was asked if he had anything to say and he replied “No I don’t, but you will hear more about it later on”.  He would rely upon the justice of the most honourable magistrates (laughter)  The Bench fined him 14 shillings including costs or 14 days in default.  Defendant replied  “Oh I don’t want to go to that place; I could pay it if it were fourteen hundred shillings.  I hope I shan’t come here again for a long time”.
