Identified from census returns.

On Friday 30th June 1905 Messrs. Lacon and Co. advised that the house was let at £15 a year and did fair average trade for a roadside house. The several recent transfers of licence had not been due to a lack of trade.
The Justices had awarded a provisional licence and had referred the house to compensation on the grounds that, there were two beerhouses and two fully licensed houses  serving a population, in 1901, of 560, one licence for every 104 persons. Also that three of the houses were a very short distance apart in the street.
The Chairman said the Bench considered the licence was not required and it would be refused.

At the Harleston Brewster Sessions held Friday 9th February 1906 it was heard that the licence had been referred for Compensation in 1905, the licence had been extinguished by the Quarter Sessions and the house had since closed.
