William Robert Windeatt - using obscene language, 1858

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


Before the Mayor and R. Bastard, Esq.

WILLIAM ASH and WILLIAM ROBERT WINDEATT, two respectable young men, were charged, upon the information of P.C. WHIDBORN, with using obscene language in the public street on the previous evening.  They expressed contrition for the offence, and the Bench inflicted a fine of 2s. 6d. each and the expenses.

- Trewman's Exeter Flying Post or Plymouth and Cornish Advertiser (Exeter, England), Thursday, April 1, 1858; Issue 4799

This must be William Robert WINDEATT, the elder, of the Horrabridge branch. He would have been eighteen at the time.  By 1861 he was in the Royal Marines but we don't know when he joined up.  This report suggests he had not joined up at this point in time.
