20th June 1812: More arms raids in Rastrick

In the evening of Saturday June 20th 1812, Luddites were again out in Rastrick conducting raids for arms. Several homes were raided, including the home of a John Oldroyd, where they obtained a horse pistol.

This is from the deposition of Joseph Woodhead, which can be found at HO 40/1/1.
