Evidence Type: Newspaper Report
22 April 1826
OFFENCES, CHARGES, &c
MARY WARD, free, was again, as had been more than once the case before, charged with drunkenness and disorderly conduct in the public streets. MARY’s plea, of a fifteen years residence in the Colony, had but little effect in mitigating her fate. The chief constable denounced the woman to be possessed of a most insatiable thirst for strong waters. She was ordered a penance of six weeks in the Factory.
