Mrs Soper gave long account of ill treatment, he struck her, stayed out all night & cohabited with prostitutes & her witnesses collaborated, but judge dismissed adultery as witnesses couldn't prove time & dates. Mr Soper accused wife of violence, neglect of houshold duties went off to her father's, she pulled his beard, was addicted to drink & he called police over his wife's violence. His witnesses collaborated. He hit her only in 1857 when she was reading by fire when he returned with friends & repeatedly told her to make them dinner, she hit him & he responded. Giles's brother-in-law [at least 2 of Giles's 10 sisters m] said she followed her husband to his house threatening to stab him with knife, said she'd drown herself & was later found drunk in street. PC Drew said he accompanied Giles early 1866 to get his things from house, she threatened Giles with a poker if he took his things away, then went quite.
