Re: I smiled because...

Just doing some research and found this entry from the 1677 Court Leet Rolls for my home town...

Quote:
"Wee Fyne Roger Baron for a troll a gaynes Ann Pymton"
http://www.wiganworld.co.uk/stuff/le...=leet&subopt=1

And I thought trolling was a relatively new thing

Just surpassed this with this from the same page...

Quote:
Richard Holme for harbouring Thomas Standish a foreigner
Thomas, son of Miles Standish, apparently no longer regarded as British when visiting from America.

Nice how every woman is referred to either as spinster, widow or wife of someone. And gee there was a lot of assault going on!
