Norris Carter had married Sarah Dixon in the last quarter of 1860. She had died late 1863 or early 1864. Norris then married Susanna Hart in the first quarter of 1865.

At Swaffham Petty Sessions, held 4th May 1867, Noras Carter, licensed victualler, was charged by police-constable Johnson of having his house open for sale of beer at illegal hours on the morning of Good Friday. Fine of 6s with costs of 12s.


For sale by auction Friday 5th June 1868.
`In the occupation of Mr. L. S. Bidwell, or his undertenant Mr. Morris Carter, at a rent of £23 per annum; Containing 2 Front Rooms, Cellar and 5 Bedroom, Cart lodge, Shed, Garden and Pightle of land adjoining, a total of 0 Acres 3R 27P.

Licence considered unnecessary at the Annual Brewster Sessions, Monday 4th February 1905. Messrs. Bidwell & Co applied for the licence to be renewed on behalf of Lord Amherst of Hackney. They confirmed that the licensee was not their tenant but employed by His Lordship. The Chairman said he did not understand the situation since Lord Amherst had said some years previously that he wanted the house done away with, he had always wanted the house done away with and was willing it should be done away with.   Renewal to be considered at the adjourned meeting which was scheduled for the 4th March 1907. The Chairman said there was no chance that that the licence would be renewed the following year.

At the Kings Lynn Compensation Authority Meeting on Tuesday 9th July 1907, licence renewal was opposed and it was claimed that there were no objections from the owner or the tenant. It was pointed out that the tenant, Mr. Thomas Gathercole had been at the house for eighteen years. <From 1889?>
Licence refused and referred to compensation by consent.
But seemingly the house survived a further two years to 1909.
