PUNISHMENTS IN PROVINCIAL TOWNS IN THE OLDEN TIME.
The instruments most in vogue with our ancestors were three-the cucking-stool, the brank, and the tumbrel.
The Cucking-stool was used by the pond in many village greens about one hundred years ago or little more, and then deemed the best corrective of a scolding woman.
By the sea, the quay offered a convenient spot.
The barbican, at Plymouth, was a locality, doubtless terrible to offenders, however care
less of committing their wordy nuisance of scolding. Two pounds were paid for a cucking-stool at Leicester in 1768. Since that it has been placed at the door of a notorious scold as a warning. Upon admission to the House of Correction at Liverpool, a woman had to undergo the severity of the cucking-stool till a little before the year 1803, when Mr. James Neild wrote to Dr. Lettsom. The pump in the men's court was the whipping-post for females, which discipline continued, though not weekly.

The tumbrel was a low-rolling cart or carriage (in law Latin, tumberella) which was used as a punishment of disgrace and infamy. Millers, when they stole corn, were chastised by the tumbrel. Persons were
sometimes fastened with an iron chain to a tumbrel, and conveyed bareheaded with din and cry through the principal streets of towns.
Court of Hustings Book, 1581. (Lyme.)
"The jury present that the tumbrell be repaired and maintained from time to time, according to the statute."
In 1583, Mr. Mayor was to provide a tumbrel before All Saints Day, under a penalty of 108.
