On Monday 7th May 1849, John Page was charged with having his house open, on Sunday 8th April, during the hours of divine service. Of the persons said to be a\t the house, John Kitton said that he lodged at the house. Robert Hall and Thomas Barber had entered at about 10:30 am and went to the kitchen where they each had a pint of beer, which they paid for. Later Robert Hall and Thomas Barber went into the parlour and had a beer. John Hall swore that he was at the house to do business with the landlord and was willing to bet any of the Magistrates, £50 that he had never drank beer in the house, on a Sunday, in the whole course of his life.
Robert Hall said that he had entered the house because it was raining. Labourer John Lee said he was in the house and swore that none of the parties in the house had drunk beer.
The Bench found the charge proved and since there was no other complaint against the house, imposed a fine of £1 and 21s 6d costs <24s 6d?>

The Norfolk Chronicle of 10.02.1906 reported that the Beerhouse licence for this house had been referred for one month due to the bad repair of the premises.

The location of the house is given at St. German's in the 1906 magistrates report and in census returns 1871, 1881 & 1891.
