Reepham - Described in December 1792 as being ` a populous and genteel town, with a good neighbourhood.'



Licensee John Colls of Hackford, entered the Methodist Meeting-house, during Devine Service on Sunday May 2nd 1813. He disturbed the Congregation and interrupted the preaching of the Reverend C. Cooke, by talking aloud. Mr Colls published an apology in the Norfolk Chronicle of 22nd May 1813 in return for the Reverend Cooke not pursuing prosecution and promised to pay all expenses incurred. He further promised not to repeat such actions and thanked the prosecutor for the `lenity shewn'. Unfortunately the article does not say which house Mr. Colls was running.
