I have searched all my own sources but cannot find more about them.
About May 1815 George Richardson and eight other Scythesmith Journeymen were taken to Derby Gaol to answer the crime of forming an illegal union under the Combination Act. They were from Norton Derbyshire and the Justice was said to be called Knebb. I have a Sir William mentioned but don't know the rest of his name.

Also earlier in 1788 I have a William Oliver, Norton, Scythesmith, accused of Assault and Riot.
