JOHN FRIAR 1782
-




 The Norfolk Chronicle of 6th April 1782 reported...
Whereas about eight Weeks since the notorious John EWSTON, now confined to the Castle, came to the House of John FRIAR, at the CROWN in Trowse, and there left a Bay Mare, with a switch tail, about thirteen Hands and a Half high, rising six Years old, and rather dim-sighted, and as there is reason to suppose the Mare was stolen, this is to give Notice, that whoever can prove a Property in the said Mare, may have her again by applying to the said John FRIAR, and paying all reasonable Expences, otherwise she shall be sold, in order to indemnify him the Charges he has been at.


Perhaps same as the ROSE & CROWN
or possibly the CROWN & THISTLE ?
