Given as the RISING SUN 1822.

On 15th October 1861, William Berrett drew a cheque for on Messrs. Harvey & Hudsons bank of Norwich in favour of Mr. Southgate of Ipswich. The bank was instructed to withhold presentation for two weeks until sufficient funds were in his Diss bank account to cover the cheque. Unfortunately Mr Berrett was convicted, on the day the cheque was due, of selling wine without a licence. He was fined £12 10s. In order to assist Mr Berrett, saddler John William Bunyan paid part of the fine and wrote a letter to Mr Southgate explaining the situation and asking if settlement could be delayed until the following Tuesday (5th November), when he would be in Ipswich and would pay cash. In the event Bunyan did not visit on the said date and was consequently threatened with being sued for the outstanding debt. On Tuesday 12th November 1861 Bunyan received a cheque from Berrett for £12 10s, but it was dishonoured. Bunyan settled the debt with Mr. Southgate by paying £20 8s into his bank.
In court Monday 21st April 1862, Berrett was ordered to immediately pay the sum of £26 10s and costs.

 

Renamed the WATERFRONT by February 2003.
