      Petty Sessions. - Thursday - Before Captain T.
      Hodgkinson r.n. and J. Edward Cox, Esq.

        Strange Conduct. - Caroline Beaton, an elderly
      married woman, was charged with wilfully breaking a
      plate-glass window at the "Dolphin" Hotel, the property
      of Mr. John Purnell. The damage was laid at 1l. - It ap-
      peared that on Tuesday evening the woman tapped twice
      on the woodwork of the window, and then struck the glass
      with a key. The glass was cracked. - Her statement was
      that she tapped because she wanted half-a-pint of beer,
      and as she could make no one hear she "tapped" again,
      and accidentally broke the glass. - Evidence was given by
      Dr. Bannister to the effect that the defendant had been
      twice confined in a lunatic asylum, and, taking this into
      consideration, the Bench suspended judgment, but warned
      the defendant of the consequences of a repetition of her
      conduct.  

      (from the Hampshire Telegraph and Sussex Chronicle, of Saturday 4 December 1880)

      This was at the same petty sessions where her son Eli and daughter Caroline were charged with stealing and receiving 5 fowls.

    Lunacy 1871-1901  Hampshire County Lunatic Asylum, Fareham, Hampshire, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • Caroline was a patient in the asylum at the time of the 1871 and 1901 censuses.
      I have lots of information about Caroline's 10 admissions to the asylum (courtesy of Susan Burt).
      Although she died in the asylum, Caroline was described as "of Union Workhouse Havant" on her death certificate.
      The HCLA on Wikipedia
    Also known as Caroline WEATHERS 
    Occupation Charwoman 
    • On her death certificate in 1912, but given her age and that she was then in a lunatic asylum it must refer to an occupation earlier in life.
    Died 27 Feb 1912  Hampshire County Lunatic Asylum, Fareham, Hampshire, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • Died of senile decay - eventually. The asylum had prepared her coffin 7 years before!
      Died at age of 103 according to A. Ivy; on certificate as 93 but must have been at least 95 from her baptism date.

    Death certificate for Caroline Withers
    Notes 
    • Supposedly an heiress! - gave up for her marriage, according to my Great Aunt Ivy, but clearly Caroline's father was a labourer. Whether the Withers had had any money further back I don't know.

      Caroline signed her marriage cert. with the surname spelt 'Weathers' and this is the maiden name given on her daughter Mary's birth cert.
