Method: this table is compiled of those protest incidents recorded in provincial and national newspaper reports, estate correspondence, letters to and from the Home, Post and War Offices, and judicial records. As the case of a report of fires in the Farningham area in early October attests, the record is not comprehensive and as such this table should not be read as a register of all south-eastern Swing incidents. In relation to the protest activities of mobile gangs, I have simply included one entry in the table if their activities extended to that parish on that day. If they returned to the parish on the following day, a further entry is made. Again, limitations in the record, not least for the fast evolving events in Hampshire, mean that it is likely that many such incidents are not detailed.
