KINGS HEAD 1836, 1865, 1883, 1890

Lease documents dated 20.09.1872 confirm the contract between the Reverend Hoare and Bircham & Sons and names the house as
The KINGS ARMS.
However the same document also states
that the house was also known as
THE HORSESHOES

Anna Maria Bartle, widow of owner, sent a letter dated 25.10.1872, to John Myhill stating that `all rent due and hereafter be paid to me, or my representatives'. (According to the Harrod directory of 1872 Mr. Myhill was only parish clerk in that year, with Mr. Robotham being named at the Kings Arms.)

John Myhill paid 11/8d for Land Tax, Income Tax and Inhabited House Duty for the year 1877.

Lot No 46 in sale of REEPHAM BREWERY Estate Saturday 8th June 1878, then let to John Myhill at an annual rent of £21.

John Myhill became tenant to Anna Maria Bartle in agreement signed 25th October 1878, which states previous owner as Messrs Bircham. On the same day Mrs Bartle wrote to Mr Myhill confirming that he was to pay all rent due to those appointed by Mrs Bartle and not to any other person or persons whomsoever.

A two hour extension on Tuesday 17th June 1881 was granted to John Myhill at Special and Petty Sessions at Fakenham 30th May 1881.

Steward & Patteson paid solicitors a total of £4/3/6d for matters concerning Surrender of Lease (Dated 20 January 1872) and Completion of new lease, November 1890.

William Bircham said in a letter dated 1st December 1890
`.....I am obliged for your information......as to payment of this rent, and I assume that I have no longer anything to do with it, and no further responsibility in this matter.'

Steward & Patteson disputed the value of the property in letter dated 17th October 1892 and stated that `...we must therefore be content with a lease, which however has may years to run yet.'

Steward & Patteson paid £12/6/11 on 10th April 1893, being rent for 6 months due Lady Day.

Steward & Patteson paid £13 on 11th October 1894, being rent for 6 months due Michaelmas 1894.

Steward & Patteson advised John Eggleton 19th December 1903 that `There is no urinal and the Authorities are very sharp now as to the sanitary arrangements on licensed premises. We will be glad to hear of your solution since this does not come under the heading of repairs.'

A letter from S&P to Miss M H Bartle dated 3rd April 1913 pointed out that the lease was due to run out at Michaelmas, next, `...and having  been your tenants for many years we should be glad if you could let it to us for a further term.'

S&P rejected an asking price (for purchase of Freehold) of £800 in letter dated 14th June 1913, saying that considering £700 was considered a fair price the previous year and the fact that the structure is so very old and serious roof repairs will soon be due.........'
S&P offered £750.
