The solicitors to Charles Richard Shawl Nixon informed him in 1892 they had attempted to sell by private contract and then by auction..........

An undated note states that offers should be made to Morgans, Bullards, Cann & Co and Steward & Patteson.

On 30th November 1891 Lacons had been approached, but they had declined interest since they already had a house nearby.
Lacons suggested that Steward, Patteson, Finch & Co. should be approached since.............
`` They have for years been buying every house they can get their hands on ''.

Bullards advised 5th December 1891 that they would inspect the premises Monday or Tuesday next and be in contact.

Cann & Co offered interest, Steward & Patteson were willing to see the house, Bullards had offered £350.

Cann & Co declined interest 9th December 1891 and the owner (Mr. Nixon) was then advised that the tenant must be offered a further 3 months occupation since the house could not be offered to Steward & Patteson when empty.
(William Thomas Tent was paying £20 per year and had been given notice to quit on and by 25th December 1891).

Mr. Nixon advised 09.12.1891 that the Bullards offer had been declined and ``strangely Morgans had not made any contact''.
He further stated that the house should be offered to Steward & Patteson since the house already sold their stout, ``and since Allsops already had a house 10 minutes walk down the road, they may be interested in the house''.

Mr. Coleman of Norwich expressed interest in the house (not as a Public House ?).

An approach made to Youngs & Co. was declined.

Steward & Patteson were approached again.

Mr. Nixon advised his solicitors 4th February 1892 that the tenant had left at the Christmas Quarter having been fined £2 for `` Being found in a house full of men, some the worse for drink.'' The replacement tenant had not arrived....`` Having been taken bad with the feaver''.

Steward & Patteson advised by letter dated 13th February 1892 that they were not interested in the house since it was in a bad locality, and they had already been approached the previous Summer.

During February 1892 Mr. Coleman was advised that the property could be offered to him.

By March 1892 it was suggested that if Messrs Coleman would not purchase then perhaps they may be able to let the premises.

Coleman declined to give £200 for the house in a document dated 30th April 1892.

On the 3rd May 1892 a firm of auctioneers was recommended.

``WELL SITUATED FOR TRADE PURPOSES IN NORTH HOWARD STREET, WITH FRONTAGE THERETO OF OVER 20 FEET, AND ABUTTING ON ROW No. 26, CONTAINING SUNK CELLAR, FRONT BAR AND TAP ROOM, SITTING ROOM, KITCHEN, FOUR BEDROOMS AND LARGE ATTIC. IN THE REAR IS A PAVED YARD WITH DOOR TO THE ROW, WASH HOUSE AND COAL HOUSE. THE COMPANY'S WATER IS LAID ON. LAND TAX 5/7d - FOR SALE BY AUCTION THURSDAY MAY 26th 1892.''

The auctioneers advised 4th June 1892 that they regretted making charges without a successful result from the auction...
``No business being able to be done with Mr. Beevor''.

On 21st June 1894 Mr. R. S. Nixon of Skeyton confirmed that he had agreed to sell the house to Lacons for the sum of £250.
