(Anchor Of Hope)


Charles Forster announced 7th December 1796 that he had taken the house - ANCHOR of HOPE - and laid in a stock of Porter, Spirituous Liquors, &c, hopes for a continuance of the favours of the former customers, his friends, and the public in general, assuring them they will be ever thankfully received  and gratefully acknowledged '.

Charles Sparrow appeared as a witness in the case against London Swell-mobsmen, John Howell, Alexander Lewis and a third unknown person,  who were accused of picking the pocket of Mrs. Ringer, haberdasher.
On Monday 12th December 1859 it was heard that Howell and his two companions had stayed at the ANCHOR of HOPE and had taken their meals together. Howell paid for everything each morning. Sparrow had noticed one day, when Howell had fallen asleep in a chair, that one eye was open. He deduced from this and other observations that Howell had a glass eye.
Owing to lack of evidence the prisoners were released and soon left the city.

Charles Sparrow was summoned 2nd September 1865 for an assault on William Yallop of Crooks Place. There was no doubt that a person who came out of the house, in his shirt sleeves,  to fasten the shutters, had severely assaulted Yallop as he passed by. There was however, no clear identification of the assailant , so the bench dismissed the charge.
