A sale by auction, of land and properties in Great Dunham, was held here Wednesday 19th December 1792.

Offered for sale by auction Monday 15th August 1803. Described as Newly-erected with stable and outhouses belonging, together with very good bowling green and part of an adjoining garden, well planted with fruit trees. Altogether about One Acre.
Possession from Michaelmas.

Described in 1828 as entirely new built.


Referred for compensation 01.03.1912
Licence renewal refused 1912

Closure by compensation unopposed at Licensing Authority meeting Friday 21st June 1912. ( Robert Wheals given as licensee, although licence register states that the licence had passed to Baker and then Lemmon, earlier in the year. )

Licensee name confirmed as Herbert Wheals and Registered Owner as Seppings & Co. when licence refusal by reason of closure by Compensation, published 23rd August 1912.
It seems that Mr. Wheals was the last licensee serving the public in the house, hence his entitlement to some compensation, later licence holders were possibly brewery representatives.
