Dodging the Rent. Palterton "Flitter" Prosecuted.
The wife of a soldier who had received an allowance for rent from the colliery at which her husband was employed before enlistment, having got into arrears for rent, removed elsewhere. For doing so, the woman Martha Ann Granby, was summoned at Chesterfield on Saturday (22.9.1919) by her landlady Hannah Dickens, the charge being "fraudulently removing goods from Palterton to Bolton to avoid distress for 31..18s..6d. arrears of rent due 17 Feb. (1919). Complainant explained that the defendant left the house without giving any notice. She had goods worth £25. She asked for double rent as she had five tenants go off in that way in a fortnight and had lost over £17. This was a soldiers wife who had a separation allowance and her rent money allowed from the colliery, but she had not kept up her payments. When her husband joined up in 1914 they owed no rent the arrears had been run up since. An order was made for the payment of £1..18s..6d. - the arrears due.
