On Wednesday 25th November 1863, Henry Nobbs was charged by Police Sergeant Boutell with allowing a raffle in his house on the 4th November.
Admitting the charge, Mr. Nobbs said there were a few sausages left over from the Fair and since they were perishable he did not think that anybody would take notice if he disposed of them in a raffle.
The bench took a favourable view of the case and instead of a fine that could be £5 they imposed a fine of 1s and costs.

Spirit licence granted to Edward Fulcher Tuesday 24th August 1869.

Advertised 4th June 1892 To Let.
Apply Youngs, Crawshay & Youngs, Crown Stores, Diss.

Licence referred to compensation February 1930, however on Wednesday 11th June 1930 Messrs. Youngs, Crawshay & Youngs argued that the licence should be renewed.
Superintendant Fuller gave his opinion that the house was not needed and that nine fully licensed houses were within 420 yards and all in superior construction and accommodation. The house was mainly used by working people and on a Friday, by dealers. Not all of the house was used or furnished. The main room was totally unfurnished.
In response it was said that the house contained a bar and bar parlour. There were four bedrooms and stabling for nine horses. The house stood between fifty and one hundred yards from Messrs. Gaze's sale ground. `Do you think that these fowl dealers would be welcome in the CROWN? They are different classes of houses? One is a palace and the other a pigsty.'
It was said that the tenant could not make a living out of the house and was getting money from the Labour Exchange. His wife was licensee and ran the house. Mr. George Robert Rayner was the licensee's manager and said that the previous tenant had run the house for 20 years. He added that a man could not get a good living but could get a fair living at the house.
It was a small house serving a very useful purpose. It was not a drinking house where people went and got soaked. The trade had been let down because suitable people (tenants) were not in the house. The Brewers had shown great kindness and had allowed them to stay.
The licence was renewed with the committee thinking that a change of tenant would be desirable. On behalf of the brewers it was said that their advice would be followed and the house would be thoroughly done up.
