The inquest into the death of James Hicks was held here 16th June 1824.

When the licence renewal of Robert Spencer was refused in August 1867, Mr. D. Steward, for the brewers, asked that the licence be issued to them, since Mr. Spencer would be leaving at Michaelmas (29th September).
The magistrates refused the request, in spite of past understandings that a fitting tenant would be put into the house to take over the licence.

Full licence granted Tuesday 25th August 1868 to William Warnes.
