On this day in 1856
"Thomas Parker the surveyor had received orders from the committee to put a compulsory supply of water into houses of parties refusing to pay water rates.

The surveyor had been assaulted, and also obstructed on entering the premises occupied by Thomas Murgatroyd by William Hartley the son of the owner, the Constable was fetched who arrested Hartley, took him down to Keighley, and also before a Magistrate who dismissed Hartley, understanding the case to be one of disputed right, in which they had no jurisdiction. Mr Hartley has now given a month's notice to the Local Board, that he will cause a summons to be issued out of the County Court of Yorkshire at Keighley for trespass and false imprisonment committed by the said Thomas Parker and George Hopkins the Constable. After a lengthy discussion it was moved by William Greenwood and seconded by Mr Thomas that Parker be authorised to summons Hartley before the magistrates, both for the assault and for obstructing him in the performance of his duty. No one voted against the motion, so it was unanimous."
