WALTER WILLIAM LANE 1865


On Thursday 24th November 1859, it was heard that Henry King was asleep when disorder was discovered at the HALF MOON TAP by a police-officer, at 2:00am on the previous night, he was unaware that the person running the tap permitted such events.. The great row had been caused by an assemblage of prostitutes and disorderly characters.
The Mayor hoped that the tap would be run in an orderly manner in future and required 5s to be put into the poor box.

From the November 1859 conviction it would appear that the HALF MOON TAP and EXCURSION TRAIN were one in the same. Mrs. Manship being named at the latter house in 1858 and later.

23rd September 1861 : Henry King was charged by farmer Steward, of Stokesby, of assault. The case was a trifling one and arose from a squabble as to the possession of certain halters. Language was exchanged between the parties, not at all pleasant to ears polite, after which they struck each other. It was proved to the satisfaction of the magistrates that Steward had wilfully put himself in the way of King. The Bench dismissed the trumpery charge.
