Stephen Pegg was committed to trial on Wednesday 24th February 1864 accused of stealing a truss of hay from Henry Rogers of Scole, on the 11th February, bail was allowed.


In the County Court, held in Diss on Tuesday 7th May 1867, beerhouse keeper Stephen Pegg claimed that James Clarke had sold him vetches and oats stover, claiming it was first-rate hay. However his horses would not eat it and he had to use it for manure. Pegg had paid £1 for the fodder and was awarded a refund of 10s.

In the County Court on Tuesday 4th June 1867, Stephen Pegg successfully sued labourer Robert Clarke for 3s 2d owed for beer purchased in 1864.
Mrs Clarke had violently denied that her husband owed the money and threatened to "disturb the plaintiff's rest" for selling beer on a Sunday when people were at church. This did not help.

Mr. Pegg is given as a shopkeeper in 1890 and as a grocer, tailor and baker in 1891.

Not found 1883 or later.
