Benjamin is taken to court by Richard Graydon of Tooman Road who believes Ben is poaching on his land. Richard is a farmer and land owner in the area. In later years Ben's wife Eliza will rent a house from him for a period.

Second Charge:
That on the 19th of May 1889 at Downs in said County Defendant being found during prohibited hours upon the licensed premises of John Connolly and being required to give your name and address did give to Complainant* a false name and address contrary to law.

Order of the court:
Ben had at least two others for company on the day in question. In regards being found on licensed premises when he shouldn't the Judge just notes 'Like rule as in No 62'. Ben is No 64 and unfortunately No 63 is on the previous page which I can't access. A second page, not pictured, lists a fine of 7s. for the offence and 1s. for court costs.

For lying about his name and address he is fined two shillings and six pence and one shilling for court costs.

The second page, which I haven't included, notes that if in default (for either charge) he will receive 7 days imprisonment in Wicklow Gaol.

*Complainant in this case is Sargent John P Dobbyn of Mount Kennedy RIC.

Dog Registration - Benjamin Henderson
Dog Registration - Benjamin Henderson

Ben has settled down, he has his own home in the Downs, his first child, Benjamin Joseph, is due any day so this is clearly the best time to get a dog. Or as a fairly law-abiding citizen you might decide to license the dog you already have.

Dog licenses were introduced into law in 1865 and each license cost 2s. and a further 6d. for 'administration'.

So on 26 March 1886 Ben pays 2s. 6d. for a black male terrier. Good news for the dog because in March 1887 he returns to Newtown Court House to license a (hopefully the same) black male terrier.

In 1891, after a couple of years silence on the dog front, Ben returns to license a male yellow terrier... and in 1892 he turns up at Newtown Courthouse on both the 25th and 26th of March to register two yellow male terriers.

In 1894 he bought his last license for a black and tan female terrier.
