At the licensing sessions Monday 7th March 1910 the house was described as the NEW GOLDEN BALL. The location was given as close to Terrington Court House. The annual value was £14, the rateable value £11 10s, and the rent £12.

In Terrington there were 2,107 people and 17 licenses. That worked out at one licence for every 127 persons. There was also one Grocer's licence.

Owners were Steward & Patteson.
The premises comprised a tap-room, bar, living room and spare room all in good repair.
The house had been selected for closure by Compensation because it was in close proximity to other licensed houses. The COUNTY ARMS was 60 yards off, the NEW INN 145 yards, and the COACH & HORSES 160 yards. In the other direction there was the KING WILLIAM 340 yards off, which was a large house, and 130 yards further on was the ANGEL.
All the houses held full licences except for the COUNTY ARMS, which was a beer-house. When asked which was the better house, County Arms or New Golden Ball. Mr. Wilkin ( For S&P) said the latter. It was further said that the New Golden Ball was a necessity to the Courts since it had capacity for 14 horses and even their worthy justices put their horses up there. The Court made objection to the house on the grounds that those summoned before the court often waited in the New Golden Ball and would have to be called out. Superintendant Bentham said the house was in good order and he would not say one word against the tenant.
The Chairman said the licence would be referred for Compensation, and in the meantime a provisional licence would be granted.

At the Petty Sessions 5th February 1912 the licence renewal was withheld on the grounds of redundancy, but would be open to argument at the 4th March licensing meeting.

~

Steward & Patteson raised no objection to the licence being referred to compensation at the Sessions 4th March 1912 or at the Licensing Authority meeting Friday 21st June 1912.
