*Lincoln, Rutland & Stamford Mercury,
11th Jan.1884, pp.5d
"A detachment of "Plough Jacks", consisting of 13 farmer's men and
boys, dressed in the usual fantastic costume, invaded the streets of
Barton on Monday and went through their time-honoured antics. There
is no objection to the amusements as such, but the frequent adjournment
to the public-houses is a material draw-back."
