For Sale by Auction Thursday 20th April 1797.
Part of an Estate, to be sold in 17 Lots, including the Manor House.

A large, newly erected room at the Nags Head was fitted up in a tasteful manner on Thursday 6th May 1819 to celebrate the birthday of the Earl of Albermarle. 180 persons assembled at half past four for an excellent dinner.
Those present included General Sir Ronald Fergusson, F. Keppel Esq, Mr. Coke and many other dignitaries. Lord Bury thanked those present for the very kind manner that his father's health had been given....... Some twenty Toasts were given and at about ten o'clock the Hon. General quitted the chair. Mr. Coke excused himself through illness but the many excellent songs and glees carried on unabated till a late hour. (Public Dinners had been held the previous week at Reepham, Castleacre, Titteshall, Attleborough and Wells, by personal and political friends of Thomas William Coke, Esq.  to celebrate the Birthday of that worthy Representative and highly respected Gentleman. At each event the healths of Mr. Coke and of Lord Albermarle were given and received with enthusiastic applause by all present.)

On Wednesday 4th January 1843, one Robert Spurling was charged with stealing the great coat belonging to innkeeper William Watson of East Harling. The police finding the coat in the possession of the prisoner, he was committed to one month in prison.
