Henry Cage, Charles Sneath and Peter Peel were summoned before the Magistrates on Wednesday 22nd February 1843 accused of stealing four shawls, a neckerchief, three silk handkerchiefs and 12s 6d in money from Mrs Burdett.
It was claimed that the previous day, Peel had distracted Mrs Burdett by ordering beer whilst the others crept upstairs and pillaged the rooms.
Upon being discovered, the two accused jumped out of a window and made off. They were later apprehended by Constable Copeman.
The following day three shawls, and some other items were discovered in a field adjoining the Dereham Road.
With no further evidence against the three, they were discharged.
