Duffers (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Duffers

Cheats who ply in different parts of the town, particularly about Water-lane, opposite St. Clement’s church, in the Strand, and pretend to deal in smuggled goods, stopping all country people, or such as they think they can impose on; which they frequently do, by selling them Spital-fields goods at double their current price.
