Offered for sale 20th February 1819 as the CHEQUERS.
Lot 9 in sale which included 10 other licensed houses about the county.


Part of the Dereham Brewery estate, sold in 1828.
A slaughter house and land were included in the sale.

Offered as Lot No. 3 for sale Monday 14th June 1852, then in the occupation of Mr Robert Tye, the property of the late Mr James Maris.

On Thursday 6th July 1854, Beerhouse Keeper Robert Tye  went to collect a mule, borrowed from baker John Hewitt. On putting a bridle on the beast's head, it reared up and seized Tye's right ear in its teeth. Tye fell with the mule falling on top of him, biting him severely on the hands, arms and shoulders. The mule eventually left him but he had a broken left arm, his right shoulder and hands much lacerated and his right ear nearly off. He was in a precarious state.
Mr. Hewitt said that he had lent the mule to many neighbours previously and it had always been considered a very quiet and kind working animal.

Sales in 1953 recorded as ONLY 2 barrels a week
and in 1954 as 4 barrels a week.

Total sales for final year of trading given as 9¼ barrels, which seems strangely at odds with earlier figures.

Steward & Patteson records state that the licence was transferred to the BUSHEL & STRIKE at Heacham, this is confirmed by the Licence Register which gives a date of 11.05.1955.
