Local lumbermen illegally cut Mast Trees reserved for the King's Royal Navy.
When David Dunbar, Surveyor General, visited nearby Copyhold Mill to inspect fallen lumber, local citizens assembled, discharged firearms and convinced Dunbar to leave.
Returning with 10 men, Dunbar's group was attacked and dispersed at a local tavern, by citizens disguised as "Indians."
