Biography
 1861 Boarding (35) in Tonbridge
 1863 John File, sen., and John File, jun., appeared to summonses, the former for assaulting Mr. Thomas Bourne, of Elham, and the latter for assaulting Mr. D. S. Cresswell, of the same place.—The evidence shewed that on the 18th June, about half-past 10 at night, Mr. Bourne was on his horse near the Rose and Crown Inn, Elham, when John File, sen., went up to him, and after referring to some reports alleged to have been circulated by Bourne, he began to abuse him, and caught hold of him, and pulled him off his horse on to the ground, and thumped him on the ground; he cut his head upon, and both his hands and bruised him. Just at that time Cresswell came up and going up to File pushed him off Bourne. File then tried to strike Cresswell, and as the latter was endeavouring to ward off his blows, File's son came behind him and struck him on the side of the head and knocked him down.—The bench fined the elder defendant 5s. and 13s. 6d. costs, and the younger one 10s. and 13s. 6d. costs.—An application by John File, sen., that Bourne should find a sureties to keep the peace, was dismissed. Kentish Gazette - Tuesday 14 July 1863
 1866 Thomas Bourne was charged with assaulting Mr. Thomas Holland, at Elham, on the 29th June last. Both parties live at Elham, the latter being a schoolmaster. The complainant said that on Friday evening, the 29th of June, he was standing looking over his garden wall, and the defendant and some other person, were talking together. Defendant spoke loud enough for him to hear, disparingly of the way complainant treated his boarders. Defendant usd very abusive language to complainant and threatened to strike his head off. He left his garden and went to a policeman. On his way he met defendant, who lifted his hand to strike him, but he did not do so. Defendant was the worse for liquor, but not drunk. The Bench fined defendant 2s. 6d. And 4s. 6d. costs, in default seven days' imprisonment. Kentish Gazette - Tuesday 31 July 1866
