21st January 1812: Carrier from Kimberley attacked in broad daylight

On the morning of Tuesday 21st January, a waggon conveying a stocking frame from Kimberley was attacked in broad daylight. A man with whose face was disguised with a goatskin leapt from the roadside into the back of the waggon and smashed the frame, later fleeing before the alarm could be raised.

As recorded by Conant & Baker in their report at HO 42/119.
