Most of the papers relate to Smyth and his immediate family and descendents. Smyth was obviously a considerably wealthy man in the area, judging from the accounting information in this archive. Of particular value are the rent records which show who was living in the area at the time.

Donkin (Bryan). Autograph letter signed to William Stark of Norwich, dated November 29th, 1816, concerning the practical arrangements for a forthcoming visit of Dr Spurzheim and writing in praise of his theories, written in a clear legible hand on thin (machine made?) paper, some creasing and fraying with loss of text, but not losing the sense of the letter, with attached address portion and postmark Dr Johann Spurzheim (1776-1832) was by this time at the height of his fame as the world's leading phrenologist, having laid down the principles of understanding the nature of the brain and its working which are still followed today. Donkin discusses the best way in which Spurzheim's casts can be sent to Norwich and then goes on to describe him as 'a prodigy of courage' and states that 'truth is irresistable'. Donkin (1768-1855) was a talented engineer and inventor who is credited with the practical development of a machine to manufacture paper. Other innovations included improvements in printing machinery and a method of preserving meat and vegetables in air tight cans. The paper on which this letter was written was possibly produced by his innovative machine.

Fascinating group of printed and manuscript documents relating to an incendiary attack on a large barn containing corn and wheat, 1834, including a manuscript eye witness account of the attack, a Whitehall warrant authorising a huge reward for capturing the perpetrators, two printed reward posters, and two further reward broadsides for another attack on the same farm. Scarce. The attack took place on a farm belonging to H S Farman of Salehouse, near Norwich, and the then huge sum of 00 was offered by the Government and the Taverham Association for the capture of the perpetrators. The attack was most probably as a result of the corn laws.
