Chapter 1: LIVER & BACON: The first recorded reference to liver nd bacon appears in an 18th Century trial record. In June 1735 a clergyman was robbed in London’s Chelsea, and William Wreathcock was charged with involvement. He had been practising as an attorney for highwaymen, but was not averse to more direct involvement in their activities. He claimed that on the evening of the crime he ha been on the other side of town eating liver and bacon at the King’s Head in the City.
