This was a response to the irregular sale of Wine by Grocers & included a reference to A. CLAYDON of the Crown, Long Melford. A report in the Bury & Norwich Post** on Feb-02 in 1886 when Mrs Anne Claydon was the landlord states that : December 1st 1885 was polling day & the Yellows of Glemsford marched into Melford causing damage to any building showing a Blue bill poster. This mob attacked the Crown breaking all the windows & causing £137 15s 6d damage, & the landlady fled over the rear wall in fear of her life. The army was called out & when the order was given to load with "ball cartridge" the mob quickly dispersed.
