Larceny by Morris Dancers: Register of Brigg Petty Sessions
I.T.Jones Collection, Recorded 11th Jan. 1881, Ref.L4-2

The register of Brigg Petty sessions is kept in Lincoln Castle. It records that the five men mentioned in Retford and Gainsborough Times (1881) were found guilty of stealing goods to the value of 1/7d from premises in New Brumby on 6th January 1881 (Thursday). The only other interesting information is that the tins were actually lobster and salmon! The three signaures are those of the adjudicating justices.
