John Day, who kept the Cross-Keys at Redgrave, was this day (14th November 1755) committed to (Ipswich) Gaol... for harbouring and concealing Herring the Highwayman, and offering to buy Mr Bacon's Watch of him, at a low Price, when he knew it to be stolen.Ipswich Journal, November 15th 1755***
The sign of the cross keys is usually a reference to St Peter - an early christian follower and told by Jesus that "I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven".
