From Soulby's Ulverston Advertiser and General Intelligencer - 20 May 1897:
Charles J. Fleet, 8; Wm. Holmes, 8, and Geo. Knibbe, 11, were charged with breaking into hencotes at Askam, on the night of the 10th, and stealing 30 eggs, the property of Jonathan Dixon, grocer, Askam.
Prosecutor said he saw the six cotes safely locked at noon on the 10th; on the 11th he went to gather the eggs, when he found the whole of the cotes had been broken open, considerable damage having been done, and the whole of the eggs taken away.
Richard Sykes, a youth, was in Mr. Dixon's employ. Went to feed the hens on the 11th, and saw the three boys in the field. Nibbs said they were going to steal eggs. He saw them tearing the boards out of one cote, and go inside. Nibbs brought out some eggs. and they began sucking them. He went and told Mr. Dixon.
