1873-04-28 at the Petty Sessions at Fareham:

Richard White, a cabdriver of Portsea, was charged with having damaged a fence, the property of Mr. Thomas Thistlethwayte, at the parish of Widley, on the 11th instant.—Mr Ralph J. Thompson and the above defendant were also charged with having assaulted John Baggs, a watcher, in the employ of Thistlethwayte, at the same time and place.—John Baggs was also charged with having assaulted White at the same time and place, and (by a separate information) with having used abusive language towards Mr. Thompson, calculated to provoke a breach of the peace.—All the foregoing cases arose out of the same transaction, and were heard separately. Mr. Henry Ford, of Portsea, appeared for Baggs, and Mr G.H. King for Mr. Thompson and White. It appeared that on Good Friday Mr. Thompson hired White's cab, and went to a farm in the parish of Widley, occupied by Mr. Farrow, where head previously lodged. He was accompanied by his nurse and a little girl, who, wanting to pick some primroses, Mr. Farrow took them into a field of his where they were plentiful. There White, the nurse, and little girl remained some time, gathering the flowers, but Mr. Thompson and Mr. Farrow left. White and the nurse and girl were discovered by Baggs, who ordered White off, and compelled him to go through the adjoining copse over the bank, into the road. Something was also said to the nurse, all of which was communicated to Mr. Thompson, who shortly after met Baggs, and asked him why he had used insolent language to his nurse and child. Words ensued, which resulted in Mr. Thompson giving Baggs a "smack in the mouth," which cut his lip.—After hearing the whole of the evidence and the speeches of the attorneys the magistrates retired, and, on resuming their seats on the bench, dismissed all the informations except that against Mr. Thompson for the assault on Baggs, of which he was convicted in the penalty of £1, and 9s costs.

1888-02-03 d. in a surprise flood, when the Greenough River burst its banks, at the family home in Greenough

Catherine, who for years prior had manifested a great horror of water in large quantities and at such times her terror was exceedingly painful to witness. When the water commenced to come into the house, she knelt on the foot of the bed clasping her aged husband by the hands. As the water rose, she continued to scream until she gradually relaxed her hand and before anything could be done to save her, fell into the water and was drowned. When the rescuers opened the door her body floated out.

Catherine's body was subsequently found on the 7th February, far advanced in decomposition.
