William and Margaret Blizzard 1856 Court Record



1856 February 29 DELAWARE COUNTY REPUBLICAN ITEM #8481


Court: Com. vs. William Blizzard and Margaret Blizzard. - The parties in this case reside in Chester, and were indicted for selling liquor contrary to the restraining law. The witnesses swore to purchasing liquor at different times. The counsel for the defendants endeavored to show that William Blizzard was controlled by his wife, and that he was not responsible for her acts. Witnesses were called, who testified to the good character of William for honesty, industry and temperance. The Court,however, in charging the jury, thought it would be carrying 'WomanRights'a little too far, to admit that Mrs.  Blizzard was master of the house, of the law, and of her husband, at the same time. The jury found the defendants guilty, and the Court sentenced William to pay the costs of prosecution, undergo imprisonment for ten days in the county prison, and pay a fine of twenty five dollars. Margaret was also found guilty, and sentenced to pay the costs of prosecution, undergo imprisonment for twenty days, and pay a fine of twenty five dollars to the Commonwealth.
