  On Monday 24th September 1827, an inquest was held here into the death of James Bailey, a Sheriff's officer. On Monday 10th September the deceased had left home to attend the BELL where the election Committee for Mr. Angell was sitting. On his way he was met by a number of persons from the opposite party who carried him by force to the IMPERIAL ARMS and then to Wroxham CASTLE. The next morning they removed to Horning SWAN and then on to Smallborough. That night they went on to Ridlington PLOUGH. They returned to Norwich at about one o'clock on Friday morning,14th Sept. Although it was said nothing was wanted in eating and drinking, and nothing done to injure a healthy man, poor Bailey was very ill and suffered from being so moved about. After his return Bailey had said he was as well as usual and the fresh air had done him good. He worked at the Festival from Monday to Friday, 21st Sept. On the Saturday morning he had a fit of coughing, burst a blood vessel and died.
The Jury considered that however cruel and unjustifiable was his abduction, the onus of being instrumental in his death was removed since he had subsequently worked at the Festival.

"Died from the visitation of God."
