Two Hour Row in Cairneyhill

Dundee Evening Telegraph 19 January 1931

The fiscal said that accused came home about 10 o’clock and the disturbance lasted in the house from 10 until midnight.

Mrs Jeannie Nicholson, housekeeper, The Mews, Main Street, Cairneyhill, Carnock Parish was fined 5s with the option of five days imprisonment at Dunfermline Sheriff Court today for having in that dwelling house, occupied by John Hodge, retired mason, conducted herself in a disorderly manner, shouted, bawled, cursed and swore and committed a breach of the peace.

There were some men in the house and a good deal of drink and the disturbance caused great annoyance to the people below.

[After some research it is believed the property named the Mews referred to above is actually the Yews].
