The Market Place Duel

The following newspaper report was from the Hull Packet newspaper dated Friday, May 25th 1838. It tells of a Duel of honour that was held on a May afternoon in Pocklington Market (probably Market Place). Although the identity of the duelists are not given, we can get a clue who they are, as their fathers reside not far from Pocklington and the challenger was 34 and the challenged was 19 years of age. The son of Esculapius would have been a doctor's son, the son of Mars is likely to have been a Military person. The Inn mentioned is likely to have been the Feathers. It seemed to be a little one-sided as the challenger had the use of a big stick with the other using just his fists. It ended with the outcome of a bloody nose.
