- A BABY IN SEARCH OF ITS FATHER
Charles ASHTON, a young man of about 20, denied the paternity of a male (sic) child of which Mary Esther Maidment is the mother. Mr Shaw appeared for the latter. The evidence of Miss Maidment, who resides at the Hutt, showed that the defendant, who was a country letter carrier, in receipt of a salary of 22s 6d per week, was the father of the baby, and had acknowledged the paternity. A sister of the witness proved that the young man had admitted he was the father, and had offered to contribute 2s 6d weekly toward its support. The accused, on being placed in the box, denied all the statements of the young women. On the application of Mr. Shaw, the further hearing of the case was adjourned to the Hutt


17 October 1883
- MAIDMENT v ASHTON
At the fortnightly sitting of the Hutt Court this morning, the hearing of the affiliation case of Maidment v Ashton was resumed. Evience was given by a sister of the mother of the child to the effect that the defendant, who was a country letter-carrier, had admitted the paternity of the baby, and contributed 7s 5d towards its support. The father of the girl deposed that in the course of a conversation which he had with the young man, he admitted the child was his, and offered to take it away with him. The mother declined to allow the baby to go out of her possession, and Ashton thereupon said that he would do what he could towards its maintenance. For the defence, a young man residing at the Lower Hutt stated that on several occasions he had seen the girl criminally intimate with youths residing near her father`s house. His Worship (Mr Hardcastle) adjudged Ashton to be the putative father, and ordered him to contribute 4s weekly towards the support of the child
