The townspeople were bound to have their grain ground at the manorial soke-mill, which had become the property of the Grammar School. The management of the School Mills provoked the following epigram, written by John Byrom, against two trustees of the School Mills :—

Would starve us all or near it;
But be it known to Skin and Bone,
That Flesh and Blood can’t bear it.

“Bone” (Mr. Dawson) was a surgeon, and “Skin” (Mr. Yates) an attorney. (See Byrom’s Remains, vol. i., p. 562.)(7)
