On the night of the 17th October, 1820, the house of Mr. Cotton was broken into by four men, with their faces blacked, who with threats and imprecations, possessed themselves of very considerable property. Their sudden and terrific appearance by the bedside of Mr. Cotton, together with the idea of appearing against them on their trial, made such a deep impression upon his mind, as to depress his spirits, and impair his health, that but little doubt remains that he was thus brought to a premature grave.

At the ensuing assizes for this county, Samuel Grimwood, Thomas Last, and James Rozier, were capitally convicted of this burglary, and received sentence of death. Grimwood was executed at Ipswich, April 28, 1821; the others were reprieved for transportation.
