Richard Hopkins was summoned by Jane CHAMPION, a spinster living at 14, Alma Street, to show cause why he should not contribute towards the support of her two illegitimate children, of whom she alleged him to be the father. Mr. Henry Fielding appeared for the complainant. Evidence having been given, the Bench made an order for defendant to contribute 1s. 6d. a week until the eldest child reaches the age of 15, but in the second case the Bench decided that there was not sufficient corroborative evidence. The defendant would have to pay the costs of the day, amounting to 16s. 6d., in default of seven days's hard labour. Defendant said he had no money nor any prospect of getting any, and he was therefore removed in custody. KGaCP Sat Dec 26, 1896
