'About the year 1715 was ploughed up a large stone coffin in a close at East Wretham. I think it was brought to Mr Torticks a miller in Thetford. Memo to ask about it and the name and situation of the ground etc. Query if the lid of it does not lie over the brook running to Illington near Hockham, as a footbridge'.
