Theft of fowl by Arthur Riches from John Ling of Red Cow Inn.
QUARTER SESSIONS:Arthur Riches of Beccles charged with stealing 5 ducks valued at 15s from John
Ling, of the Red Cow public house, Beccles. Not guilty. Insufficient evidence.
POLICE COURT: William Sampson, [aged 39, married with one son, lived in Swine’s Green] labourer, &
John George [aged 25, married with no children, lived in Swine’s Green], labourer & Barrington Copeman,
[aged 37, lived in Swine’s Green], married with two children, hay dealer charged with being disorderly and
refusing to quit the Red Cow when requested by the Landlord, John Hubbard.. The three men were in the
house about 5 o’clock on Thursday.  An old man called for half a pint of beer, which was accidentally
knocked off the table, and the handle of the mug was broken. Sampson picked it up, and then smashed it
on the floor, which naturally  made him angry, and he told him to leave the house or he would call the
police. The two other defendants also behaved badly, and he told them to go. They remained, however,
drinking other people’s beer, and otherwise behaving in an improper way. On eof them threw a piece of
coal  at  him  and  injured  his  hat:  all  three  annoyed  him  for  two hours. As they had been previously
convicted they were each fined 18s, incuding costs, or seven days. Thirteen days allowed.
FIRE at Red Cow, Public House in Ingate, occupied by Mr Hubbard. Soon put out.

Letter to John Price, Beccles, Suffolk:
On the other side I send you the advertisement of your Estate allotted in such a manner as it will fetch a good price, which I
propose inserting in the Ipswich and Norwich Papers unless I receive your order to the contrary. I duly received yours and cannot
agree with you in thinking it aan advantage to advertise in the London Papers or Registering, only putting yourself to an expense
for  nothing.  As  I  am  certain it will fetch more to those in Beccles and the environsthan to any person in the Kingdom, as a
gentleman of fortune would never think of taking such antique building (if I may call it so) as it is no way modern nor wish to be
troubled with a brick kiln, or a number of buildings & co Malting Offices, but prefer a snug Mansion more in the Town. I think if
you duly weigh the matter you will agree with me in opinion and should be glad to hear from you. Hereon, mean time I am
             Sir,
                Your obdt hble servt

Fauconberge Memorial; page 21:
During several years Dr Fauconberge was an inhabitant of Beccles; a locality which may have been selected by him either with
reference to his ecclesiastical duties, or on account of his wife’s connexion with some of  the families “of wyrship” in a quiet and
pleasantly situated town. He occupied a  house on its eastern border, formerly belonging to John Clarke, gentleman, and which
retains the curved and parapetted gables common in domestic architecture at the beginning of the last century. The spot wsa

distinguished by some noble trees and was long known as the “grove”. Here, as the silence both of tradition and every local record
seems to imply, the learned official lived very much in seclusion.
