  On July 9th 1840 the French sloop, Union of Gravelines, lying in Cley harbour was seized by the Morston Coastguard after the master and four men were captured bringing spirits ashore in bladders.
The ship had a crew of the master, four men and three boys, together with a cargo of about 190 gallons of spirits and wine, 53 casks of salt and sundry other articles. The master and men were convicted by the magistrates and committed to Walsingham prison until each had paid a fine of £100. The three boys were liberated by the order of the Honourable Board of Customs.

  On 29th December 1862 it was reported that on Sunday 21st December, at six o'clock in the morning the sea had breached the bank at Salthouse and about an hour later the Cley bank was breached.. At Cley, about 300 acres of pasture land were flooded and much damage done to the houses.
This was considered to be the worst such event since that of February 1836.
