Fined 40s on Monday 17th December 1855 for having soldiers playing cards and drinking in his house between midnight and one o'clock on Sunday morning.



On 14th December 1855, the Mayor and magistrates issued a notice:-

It had come to the attention of the magistrates that certain publicans and beerhouse keepers had harboured soldiers not billeted upon them, also allowed billeted soldiers, to continue drinking and tippling to late hours, when many disorders had arisen. To stop such practices, after the above date, any house that allowed billeted or non-billeted soldiers to remain in the drinking room of the house, after eight thirty at night, would be considered to have committed an offence for which his licence may be forfeited. Existing provisions under Acts of Parliament would be strictly enforced.

The instruction came about, following a report from a Sergeant, that every soldier was bound to be in bed, when in barracks, by half past eight o'clock in the winter and at a quarter past nine o'clock in the summer.

Became the RED LION according to S&P documents.

Since different licensees are given between 1819 and 1854 it seems that the two houses amalgamated at some time after 1856.
