In a notification dated 3rd April 1784, it was recorded that, on that day, there had been a Meeting of Gentlemen at Probert's Coffee House.
The purpose to consider the Propriety of an Address to the Throne on the State of public Affairs, by the Freeholders of the County of Norfolk.
However since the meeting was called, the Dissolution of Parliament had taken place and it was the Opinion of the Meeting that the Wishes of the Public had been thereby granted and the address was no longer necessary.
