The King v Noster and Others

Mr. Solicitor-General prayed the judgement of the Court on Richard Noster, Samuel Noster, and John Saville, who suffered judgement by default at the last Hampshire assizes, to informations charging them with assaults on revenue officers.

The Court sentenced Richard Noster, against whom there were three charges, to thirteen months’ imprisonment in the House of Correction at Winchester, and each of the other defendants to six months’ imprisonment in the same place, and ordered them respectively to give security for their good behaviour for five years.
