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.
