(Valued at £700, but Miss Ann Forster of North Walsham held an interest of £520 in the property.)

Although Mr. Francis Le Neve is given as licensee in 1856, Mrs. S. Le Neve thanked the Nobility and Gentry, 14th April 1855, for their support of her late husband, and advised that she intended to carry on the business.
