A HALF MOON is referenced 1736.

On Monday 4th July 1870, James Guy was called before the magistrates to answer a charge of being open at illegal hours on the night of 24th - 25th June. His wife attended in his absence. This was a similar case to that of Mr. Bishop at the FISHERMANS ARMS whereby it was claimed a tea party, for the benefit of local fisherwomen had been given by the Hon. Robert Bourke.
Police-constable Crow said that he visited the house at two o'clock in the morning of 25th June and found four men and twelve women, with beer before them. A fiddle was being played. The sergeant cautioned the landlord, asked that the music be stopped and instructed the house to be cleared. Mrs Guy was reported to have told the assembly to stay as long as they liked. It took a further fifteen minutes to empty the house.
There had been no previous complaints against the house.
The magistrates decided that only expenses of 9s 6d should be paid, which was settled by Mr. Ford who had defended upon behalf of Mr. & Mrs Guy.
