Lot No. 2 in sale of properties 11th September 1845.
`A messuage now used as a Beerhouse known by the name of the Bear & Beehive, in the occupation of Mr Bidwell, or his undertenant. Also a cottage adjoining, in the occupation of Mary Lavender and Samuel Brook'.
The sale particulars are marked `SOLD' against lots 3,4,5 & 6, but not lots 1 & 2.

At the August Petty Sessions, Saturday 28th August 1869, the beerhouse licence of Mr. Bobbins was ordered to stand over until the September sitting because he did not make a personal application and had been convicted during the past year.

On Saturday 29th August 1874 Messrs Eyre & Co, on behalf of Charles Woodgett, applied for a spirit licence. The Chairman and Major Holloway, a member of the Bench, agreed that they could not entertain such a request since other beerhouses would expect the same favour.
A similar request by John Ellis of the PRINCE OF WALES met the same refusal.

 At one time the ANCHOR,
and finally the DUKE OF EDINBURGH
(from conveyance dated 22.12.1896)

 It would appear that cottage adjoining (as the sale of 1845) became the PRINCE OF WALES, so is it possible that Susannah Lavender was licensee at the Prince in 1846 & 1851?
