It was reported February 1950 that Mrs. Carter was the only female licensee in the borough and that the house had been in the hands of the Carter family for over 57 years.
Mrs Carter was born at the house and her late husband, John, was the son of Ellis Carter, who for many years ran the CHEQUERS at Great Ellingham.

Mrs. Carter still did the cellar work but her daughter Miss Barbara Carter was then doing most of the bar work. Mrs. Carter's father was James Kybird who served in the bar when he was 83. He was still alive at the time of the report.
In the 1891 census James Kybird was a wheelwright at Croxton and aged 32. In 1911 he was at Magdalen Street, Thetford, still employed as a wheelwright and carpenter. Mr. Kybird probably retired to the Dog & Partridge c1920 and and it would be 1942, when he was 83.

The statement that the Carter family were at the house for over 57 years apparently puts Mr. Carter at the house from 1893.

When John Carter married Ethel Kybird in 1925, he would have been about 61 years old and Ethel would have been 32.

( In 1911, John Carter is married to Mary.  The death of a Mary Carter is recorded at Thetford in June 1924, age 61. Same person?)

Maria Mann was convicted of stealing a wash of linen, value 1s, from the premises during January 1849. A sentence of two months with hard labour was given. In June 1849 she was again before the magistrates for stealing 4s or 5s, a week's earnings, from a lad named Howard.

Licensee Spendlove provided a handsome dinner for the cricket teams of Thetford and Feltwell on Wednesday 20th September 1849. The cricket match had been friendly and well conducted with Feltwell winning by one run and seven wickets to go.
