Given as Bowling Green, Gaywood Road 1836.

Transferred into Kings Lynn, Kettlewell Borough,1880

John Haylock passed through the Insolvency Court in 1859 and served six months in Cambridge gaol having paid his creditors some £200 in order to avoid a sentence of up to eighteen months. He fully repaid his creditors some time after being discharged from gaol.

In 1865 & 1875 as as well as being licensee of the SPREAD EAGLE, he is described as Mail contractor to Her Majesty's Government & by special appointment to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales.

In 1866 he had been accused by licensee John Joseph Curtis (SHOULDER of MUTTON, Kings Lynn.) of taking ten sovereigns from his purse. In consequence Haylock took action of slander against Curtis. After a lengthy hearing, with Walker, one of the witnesses for Curtis, being quoted as previously being imprisoned for fraud and the other, Gagen having been previously discharged from the employ of Haylock, the jury found in favour of Haylock.

£25 damages were awarded.
