The Norfolk Chronicle of 4th May 1776 advertised....
`There will be a main of Cocks fought at John Townshends
at the George Inn.....
on Monday 13th May .......
Pit at eleven o'clock in the forenoon'

In 1830, Vans by Thomas Crowe travelled to Kenninghall every Wednesday at  8:00pm. Carrier Cook travelled to Kenninghall every Saturday.

In 1836 it was recorded that the house had been bequeathed
to the parish by an unknown donor.

In 1845 it was said that the George & Dragon was let for the sum of £14
and had been left in 1646 by William Juby, one half for the
incumbent curate, and the other for the schoolmaster, for teaching 6 poor boys.
By 1854 the yearly rent was was £30.

Although the licence was transferred from John Townshend to William Easthaugh on 20th December 1870, Mr. Easthaugh was certainly at the GEORGE HOTEL prior to that date, since on the 30th November 1870 William Johnson of New Buckenham broke a window and refused to leave the premises. Upon the evidence of innkeeper Easthaugh and the report of P.C. Kirkpatrick, who said Townshend was drunk and riotous, the accused was fined £1 1s 6d, which included costs.
