Mr DICKENS was subject to a threat of murder by some 20 smugglers who accused him of informing upon them, the smugglers demanded £60 in recompense for the goods that were seized. Mr Diggens happened to be away at the time that the offenders `besat his house in the night, broke all his locks, confined his wife and servants, and swore desperately that they would murder him.' Mrs Dickens escaped and roused Lord Townsend and his servants who immediately came to their assistance - The smugglers made off.
(Norfolk Chronicle 18th November 1780)
A reward of £100 was subsequently offered for any person `who shall apprehend, or cause to be apprehended, any of the persons concerned ...... likewise a free pardon to any one of them that will discover his accomplice......'
