In 1839 John Gillings is given at the LORD NELSON, King Street by Pigot, but at the NELSONS HEAD by Robson.

John Gillings is given ( in error? ) at the LORD NELSON, King Street 1845.
See NELSONS HEAD.
John Rackham is at the NELSON TAVERN, King Street.

Mr. Rackham was accused Saturday 22nd December 1855 of having in his house, on the forenoon of the previous Wednesday, several suspicious characters.
The case was not gone into upon Mr. Rackham undertaking to put 40 shillings into the poor-box. It was revealed that the real delinquent was John Rackham junior, who was keeping the house for his father. The a magistrate advised that if a more respectable person was not put into the house at once, all possible would be done to have the licence taken away, should he next apply for renewal.

Full licence removed to the ODDFELLOWS ARMS, Gorleston as sanctioned at the Brewster Sessions, August 1897.

 

 

Building demolished before 1997.
