Although there is also strong evidence that Silas' best friend, William Dane, has framed him (since Silas had lent his pocket knife to William shortly before the crime was committed), Silas is exiled by the community of Lantern Yard and moves to the village of Raveloe, where he lives as a recluse, caring only for work and money.
