STONEMASONS - AYLSHAM
c1908

On 29th April 1853, cordwainer Edward Bartram fell asleep in the house. In court on Wednesday 29th June, 44 year old James McGowen was found guilty of stealing a purse, containing 15s 6d from Mr. Bartram as he slept.
Upon sentencing Bartram to six months' imprisonment with hard labour, the Chairman refused to award any expenses to Mrs. Freeman since she had been warned that a man was in her house, drunk, asleep and liable to be robbed.
The Chairman also said that he would recommend the district magistrates to discontinue the licence of the house. (This seems not to have resulted in a loss of licence)

On Sunday 26th August 1900, Police-constable Crane discovered the front door shut, but not locked, at 11:30am. Inside he found the landlord, Mr. Lancum and James Beck, landlord of the UNICORN, each had a glass of beer before them. Beck claimed that he had come to borrow a bottle of whisky. There was some dispute as to if the beer had been given freely by Mr. Lancum or if Beck had paid for it.
On Tuesday 4th August 1900, the Bench believed the beer had been paid for and fined each party 1s and 4s costs.
