 A is also for Mary Adams

A character from Bawburgh's distant past, who was employed at Lodge Farm which is situated at the most distant point of Bawburgh's eastern boundary, and which at the time was owned by a Mr. Woodbine. It has a fascinating history of its own (see L is for Lodge Farm). Mary Adams was hanged on 11th April 1791 for the crime of setting light to the outbuildings of Lodge Farm the previous year. She was held at Norwich Castle for three months awaiting trial - a member of the jury was curiously a Mr. William Clarke Woodbine!
