As FIVE AWLS in 1846 Post
At the licensing sessions Monday 7th March 1910 it was said that the
population of Walpole St. Peter was 1,147 and there were 9 licensed houses
and one brewers licence in the area. That worked out at one house for every
114 souls, not counting the brewers licence. The annual value of the house
was £16 5s, the rateable value £13, the rent £12, and the licence £4. The
house was in good repair. The nearest public house was the BELL, 154 yards
away. The licence of the FIVE ALLS was not considered by the Superintendant
Bentham to be necessary to the neighbourhood.
Cross-examined, the Superintendant confirmed that he knew the tenant well, he
was an ex-Metropolitan policeman. Representative for the brewery asked for
other evidence to be heard, and he had influential witnesses who had
come to court at considerable inconvenience. The committee Chairman said `I
think the case must rest where it is.'
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
At the Sessions 4th March 1912 the representative of Morgans Brewery said
that in 1909 some 59 barrels and 222 dozen bottles of beer were sold. In
1910 it was 63⅔ barrels and 185 dozen bottles and in 1922 the figures were
74 barrels and 222 bottles.
Confirmed as being in a good state of repair and much used in the season by
fruit-pickers, the Bench renewed the licence.
