  • Notes 
    • Peter and two of his sons were famous locally for their behaviour and disregard for the law. "In due course, as the records of the East Riding Quarter Sessions at Beverley progressed, the incorrigibles of Cottingham began to emerge. They were derived from four families, - the Granthams, the Liversedges, the Morrods, and the Plaxtons."

      "Be it noted that when the great George Knowsley of Cottingham enrolled 132 men into the two companies of Cottingham Volunteers in 1803 for the wars against Napoleon, there at Number 24 was Peter Grantham Snr., and at Number 41 was John Morrod. Be it also noted that in 1822, Mark Morrod, then a gardener aged 19, served as a substitute in the Regular Militia, and in 1827, John Liversedge, then a 22 year old butcher, likewise enrolled as a Regular Militia Substitute. Perhaps they felt that such enlistment would provide them with a more practical training in the arts of assault and riot, and might also, at the same time, provide them with the opportunity to practice such skills quite legally." John Liversedge was brother in law to William and Peter Grantham Jnr., and son in law to Peter Snr. "Then in 1821, there was a team effort. Charles Morrod combined with William Grantham, Peter Grantham, Charles Plaxton and William Plaxton. This combined force was duly charged "For a Riot, and Assaulting Constables in the execution of their office". The result was imprisonment in the House of Correction for 6 months, to enter into recognisances of £10 each to keep the peace for 12 months and to pay a fine of 6d each." [4]
