 Charles Barkaway (sic) is only mentioned as a Fellmonger in 1839

Not found named after 1891

Licence renewal deferred at the sessions held Friday 10th February 1905 on the grounds of redundancy.
Tenant to attend next meeting to state why the licence should be renewed.

On Friday 30th June 1905, it was heard that the house was doing a good trade of 75 barrels per year and that the justices had decided to provisionally renew the licence but refer it to the Compensation Authority.
The Bench were of the opinion that the licence must be refused on the grounds that (1)There were an excessive number of licensed houses, a population of 389 in 1901 gave one licence each to 129 persons. (2) this was a beerhouse, the other two were fully licensed. (3) This had the lowest rateable value. (4) The other two houses are only 234 yards apart, and this is midway between the two.

At the Harleston Brewster Sessions held Friday 9th February 1906 it was heard that the licence had been referred for Compensation in 1905 and the licence had been extinguished by the Quarter Sessions, however trade was still being carried on at that time. In consequence the licence was renewed.
