On this day in 1767, The Ipswich Journal carried a notice to creditors of the late Mr John Edwards of Badingham.
The notice is fairly standard and asks for all creditors and persons indebted to the effects of Mr Edwards to contact Mr Charles Aldridge within a month of the date of the notice.
At the bottom is the interesting ‘NB’: ‘A neat one horse Chaise and Harness, to be sold cheap at the same place’.
Also know as a ‘one-hoss shay’: a nifty little number for getting about the parish, and an early mention at that.
