It seems that John Berry junior inherited the business from his father in 1819, but by 1830, James Turner is licensee, as confirmed by Pigot.
However, on Monday 15th April 1844, John Berry, who kept Upwell Crown, was found hanging, quite dead and cold in the barn. The barn doors had been locked from inside and had to be broken open.
The subsequent inquest returned a verdict of "Temporary Insanity".

` The well accustomed Public House called or known by the name of the ROSE & CROWN, eligibly situate in Upwell; together with the Blacksmith's Shop opposite.'

 Norfolk 1851 and later census returns.

George Charlton was charged in September 1851 of Assaulting a Police Officer. Apparently P.C. John Clifford had been struck a violent blow to the eye at the Licensed Victuallers meeting, when both parties were much intoxicated. They were allowed by the Bench to retire and settle their differences.


Some times listed as the Crown - But different from the Crown at Crown Drove, Christchurch, Cambridgeshire.

Many thanks to Ann McClean for information regarding the Cambridgeshire Crown and Tansley Berry who was the landlady there, from at least 1851, probably to 1883
(died 1886 aged 89)
