Here is one that I have long loved from 1827.  I hope I am allowed to post this cutting.  If not, I will transcribe it.

Family historians didn't have so many ancestors to dig through in those days!!  I must try it again myself.

I'm sure an event of this nature could have involved my family in the small Norfolk village I'm currently looking at  :-[
