1875 24 Jul. ‘Aaron Clough, a Staffordshire potter, was again charged, on remand, with committing a breach of contract with his master, Mr Cobden of the Bristol Victoria Potteries, by leaving his work without giving a week’s notice. [Magistrate said] it would be an injury to the man and no benefit to the master to send the prisoner to gaol, and he would suggest that some arrangement should be made between the employer and the prisoner that he should pay the expenses incurred by his leaving work … it was arranged that the case should be adjourned for two months, the defendant to pay the complainant 10s weekly through Sargeant Perrott’ (Western Daily Press).
He was probably the Aaron Clough, born in 1852 in Longton, Staffordshire, who was living at 1 Heathcote Road, Longton in 1881 (81C).
