27th December 1811: One lace frame broken in Nottingham

In a house near Meadow Platts, Nottingham, stood 3 plain silk frames, all of considerable value. On Friday 27th December, the house was broken into, but only one of the frames was destroyed - the owner of the other two frames had not offended the Luddites with the prices he had offered to the workmen.

As recorded in Conant & Baker's report at HO 42/119 & the Nottingham Review of the 3rd January 1812.
