The CROWN HOTEL - FAKENHAM
1916

This house was built following a fire in 1738 which destroyed many buildings around the Market Place.
Originally called the GEORGE

Mentioned 28th April 1758 as a Share of intestate's effects of Sarah King of Wellingborough.

An auction was held here 11th January 1776.

Mr. Addington took over the house from Mrs. Emery from 29th September 1780 according to the Norfolk Chronicle of Saturday 12th August 1780. He had previously been at the Falcon, Whittlesea.

Known as the CROWN from at least 1795 when mentioned in the diary of Mary Hardy.

Meeting place of the Courts Leet and Baron of the Manor of Fakenham Lancaster.

The auction of a newly erected Post Windmill at Great Snoring, was held here Thursday 22nd September 1808.
Unsold, the property was again offered for auction at the Unicorn, Gt. Snoring in 1809.

In 1830 the coach the HERO called at the CROWN & the RED LION every alternate morning, except Sundays, at 6:00am on route to London.

Also in 1830 the coach the NELSON called every Monday and Wednesday at 8:00am and Saturdays at 6:00am on route from Wells to Norwich. The return was at 7:00pm the same day.

J. Stoughton thanked the Gentlemen who had so liberally encouraged him during his residence at the Inn that he was holding his House-warming on Thursday 13th December 1832.

The Fakenham Association for the Prosecution of Felons offered a reward of £1 for the detection and conviction of the party or parties, who on the night of Friday 8th October 1858, stole a quantity of grapes from the garden of Mr. James Stroughton, Crown Inn.

Note : George Harvey is given as licensee from 1908, but appears in the census returns 1881, 1891 & 1901, at the Crown, then acting as a manager for licensee William Harvey.
