According to the Norfolk News of 23rd November 1861, Edward Webster was a waiter at the GLOBE in June 1860 when the quantity of port and sherry, served at a land auction, was in dispute. He was licensee of the Star at the time of the report.


Mentioned 1650.

In the early 1800's a large hook was affixed to the building, facing Chapel Street. The apparatus was used  to stretch ropes used by 8 Cornish miners who were employed to sink Allens Well in St. Annes Street. The well reached a depth of 628 feet before the project was abandoned in 1827.

In the 1830's a Sociable left from the STAR and, on alternate afternoons from the GREEN DRAGON   - Heading for Wisbech.
Could this be the house as reported 1845 as the SOCIABLE?

Address as 13 Norfolk Street in 1836 - 1881

July 1860 - Mr. T. S. Stephenson, tea and tobacco dealer, claimed 6s 8d for 2lbs of tobacco which had `gone missing' when addressed to the STAR for collection by a Mr. Gregory of Snettisham. Robert Munson said that he had never seen the parcel and his son ( George ? ) said that the parcel had indeed been delivered to the STAR, but was in fact addressed to the SUN and was immediately handed back to the delivery porter.
No charges were made.

Edward Cooper, alias George Taylor, was charged October 1861 of stealing a woollen shirt and snuff box from licensee George Munson.
