*Lincoln, Rutland & Stamford Mercury, *10th Jan.1897, pp.4c
"The old mummeries and mendicancy of Plough-Monday are happily dying out. Formerly the streets of Stamford were invaded by men and hobbledehoys from the rural district, some of them fantastically dressed, who were pertinacious in their demands for beer-money, and who often forced themselves into houses to gain their object. On Monday last the town was free from these intruders, much to the relief of tradesmen and others."
