There's lots more information on the HOME page.   There are also many other court reports.

TEIGNMOUTH PETTY SESSIONS

Weights and Measures

MONDAY - Before Mr. GULSON and the Rev. J. WREY

Three boys - Edward and Thomas GILPIN and JOHN WINDEATT were summoned for creating a disturbance in West Teignmouth Church on the preceding Sunday.  The case against Thos. GILPIN was proved and he was fined; but the other two were discharged.

- Trewman's Exeter Flying Post or Plymouth and Cornish Advertiser (Exeter, England),
Wednesday, December 6, 1865; Issue 5193


This John is probably the son of John and Mary Ann WINDEATT of the Horrabridge tree.  He would have been 16 or 17 in 1865 which seems a bit old to be described as 'a boy' (although we know from a militia record that a cousin of his was only 5'3" tall so it is possible he was also small and looked a lot younger).  It's possible that this John was another, younger, John WINDEATT although I haven't found another John in the area  of about the right age to be described as 'a boy'.
