MURDER IN THE RED BARN A copper lustre jug, mid 19th century, printed in black with a building titled 'The Red Barn', the reverse with game birds, and a smaller jug with copper lustre and yellow ground printed with named portraits of Cornwallis surrendering and Lafayette flanked by winged figures, the smaller jug restored, 15.2cm max. (2) The Red Barn at Polstead in Suffolk was the scene of the horrific murder of Maria Marten by her lover, the Squire William Corder in 1827. The two had arranged to meet at the barn and elope. Instead, Maria was murdered and her body buried in the barn. Corder fled to London, married, started a new life and sent letters to Maria's family claiming she was in good health. Corder was later arrested, tried, found guilty and publicly hanged in Bury St Edmunds in 1828. Such was the interest in this crime that the barn became an attraction and souvenirs were produced.
