~

John Utteridge was accused of entering the house of William Cutting on the night of 5th December 1845 and of stealing a fourpenny piece and up to 2/6d in copper coins.
The accused lived in a house that adjoined the cart-shed, in the yard of the Ffolkes Arms. He had a club foot.
Police officer William Newstead investigated and saw several footmarks in the yard. One appeared to be a shod foot, which had been bound over by a milk-strainer.
It was claimed that the marks had not been seen the previous day.
The Judge gave his opinion that the case was based upon suspicion and flimsy evidence. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty.

The Lynn Advertiser of 6th August 1909 reported that the house was being upgraded from public house to hotel.
On the 20th August 1909, proprietor Louis Thain advertised that the house had been Redecorated and Furnished throughout, and Visitors would find it one of the most comfortable in the district.
