    13 March 1820, 12, folio 17 The information and complaint of Richard Hicks of the parish of Northiam, carpenter, who on his oath saith that on Saturday the twenty-seventh day of February last at Northiam, Henry Ransom and John Ratten of Northiam, labourers, did riotously assemble with two other persons unknown and beset his house, broke the door and other evils, threatened other great disturbance of the peace of our Lord the King and terror of his people and against the form of the statute in that case made and provided and he therefore prays that justice may be done in the [illegible]. [signature of] Richard Hicks

    27 March 1820, 13, folio 18 The examination of Mary Tree of the parish of Northiam who on her oath saith that on the 27th day of March last in Northiam [here the normal form of evidence ends and beneath is written] 10 recognisance of good behaviour towards Richard Hicks of Northiam.
