Shared note
Newspaper article - Andrew Mercer and Agnes Dunsire: At a Jury Court held on Thirsday at Cupar, Andrew Mercer, Kennoway, was sentenced to three months' imprisonment, without the option of a fine, for kicking and otherwise maltreating his wife. It was stated in defense that the woman was of dissipated habits, and that the injuries had only been inflicted in self-defence, but Sheriff Bell said there was no justification for a man assaulting his wife.
