The Norwich history detectives found evidence of John Harrison Yallop’s involvement in a scheme in 1826 to build a waterway from Norwich to Lowestoft. Yallop's name is the third on the list, which shows he subscribed £200 to invest in the project. It is also interesting to note that Luke Hansard (1752-1828), printer to the House of Commons, who was born in Norwich, was listed as a subscriber. Although this scheme was unsuccessful, the following year a similar proposal was authorised by an Act of Parliament.
