Note:-

In the 1836 Register of Electors, one James Nurse is given as living `Near the KINGS HEAD'. The same description is given in 1840 and 1846.
In 1848, Mr Nurse is living `Near the RED LION'.

Had the Red Lion been known as the Kings Head in earlier days?
There is no mention of the Red Lion in pre 1848 Registers of Electors, but the Red Lion is named in the 1836 Whites directory.

Offered for sale 20th February 1819 as the LION.
Lot 8 in sale which included 10 other licensed houses about the county.

At the Licensing Sessions held Monday 23rd August 1869, it was heard that the house had been well conducted since Mr. Brett had been convicted in June of allowing drunkenness in his house. The Bench however came to the opinion that the document foolishly handed in, accusing constable Fiddy of perjuring himself during that case, was reason to refuse the application.

At the Petty Sessions held at Reepham on Monday 6th September 1869 the licence of Benjamin Brett was considered for renewal since he had recently been fined for allowing disorder and drunkenness in his house. He appeared before the Bench with testimonials in his support. The Bench was inclined to grant the application, but Mr. Brett dropped a foolish remark demurring to his conviction for disorderly conduct of his house. The magistrates thereupon concluded that the applicant was incompetent to judge the good or bad conduct of a public house and peremptorily refused licence renewal.

The First Joint Committee Meeting of Bullards and Steward & Patteson 29th May 1962 came to no decision as to the future of the house since the house `had not been reconnoitred'.
Sales given as 51 barrels.
