I cannot claim any great knowledge, skill or library - I googled "riotous scene in Smithfield" and up it came! I think sometimes it is the luck of the draw in what phrase you choose. I am just impressed you do the TLS crossword!

Best wishes

You're right. That was the first phrase I googled, but I did not get any mention of Goffe!

Ah yes Google. It make genies out of us all. It's just a pity that one or two don't choose to stay in their bottles. I think you probably know to whom I refer.
