*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."
