It was reported 9th July 1785 that a Mr. John Pollington claimed to have taken a Public-house at Etling Green and would be entering it at Michaelmas.
He was described as about 30 years old, a very personable man, near six feet high, fresh complexion with his own dark hair. On the 6th June he had been dressed in Corduroy Breeches, Silk Waistcoat, White Stockings, round Hat and a light coloured Cloth Coat. He was completely smart and produced a Green Shagreen Case Watch, another Silver Watch with broken glass and Money and Bills to the amount of £150, and upwards. He had claimed he was once Game keeper to Lord Sheffield and had been Ostler at Gooderstone, Surrey.
Unfortunately the above information was reported since he was suspected of having stolen a Brown Mare, worth Twelve Guineas, from Great Ellingham and of selling it at Smithfield Market for Ten Guineas. A Reward of Ten Guineas over and above the Reward allowed by Act of Parliament would be received by any person who secured the said Pollington so that he could be brought to trial and convicted.
