On Thursday 7th July 1814, to celebrate the Return of Peace and the downfall of that terrific power so lately exercised by Bonaparte over great part of Europe, the morning was ushered in by the ringing of bells.
After Divine Service, 1300 persons sat down to a plentiful dinner of roast beef, plum-puddings and strong beer, the gentlemen presiding at 25 tables, which were well arranged on the Market-hill.
After many loyal toasts the rural sports commenced.
On the Friday the sports continued and there was a Ball at the Crown Inn which was very numerously attended, with much credit due to the landlord who spared no expence on the occasion.
On Saturday the rural sports continued and poor women and children were regaled with tea and bread and butter, rolls, &c.
