Traveller William Oliver from Staffordshire published an apology, at his own expense, in the Norfolk Chronicle and the Norwich Mercury for a period of two weeks, for falsely accusing Lydia Wakefield of stealing two handkerchiefs from his pack. He fully accepted that Lydia was not at the house on the day of the said crime and that in fact no property had been lost at all. Dated 1st May 1780.

Creditors of William Park, carpenter and wheelwright, met Joshua Park here 25th March 1803. Was Joshua licensee or was this just a convenient meeting place?
