Spanked, but Triumphant – 1927



Daughter Gets Father

Fined £10


A parent who spanked his 20- year-old daughter had the shock of his life at Staten Island, New York, when he was fined £10 with the alternative of ten days’ imprisonment, says the Central News.

The father, Abraham Lincoln Eglinton, was charged with simple assault. The girl stated that he had punched her several times in the face and body, after she had refused to obey his command to prepare to leave the next morning to enter an art school.

The father said spanked her four times with his bare hand. He pleaded that this was a parent’s right. The court denied the right of any parent chastise a daughter who had attained the age 20.
