At the Fakenham Petty Sessions 26th May 1851 it was heard that persons had been found drinking in the house after 10:00pm on the 17th May.
Mr. Claxton admitted that beer had been drunk, but claimed it had been drawn before the official closing time and asked that the magistrates be lenient. It was apparently not his first offence, so he was convicted with the full penalty.

On the 17th April 1856, a policeman heard noises coming from the house at twenty-five minutes past ten o'clock.
Inside he found several persons, some of whom were said to be lodgers. One was a soldier who had been at Sebastopol and had doubtless given glowing descriptions of many a Crimean hero, which would have been quite sufficient to cause even Boniface himself to forget the hours of closing.
Before the magistrates on Monday 28th April it was said that there would be no favour to lodgers and Mr. Claxton was fined 10s and costs.
