At the sessions held 19th August 1862 the licensee was one of many who were reprimanded for omitting to assist the police, were in the habit of allowing prostitutes to assemble or conducted themselves in a manner that, although they had not been summoned or fined, yet were considered by the magistrates to be improper persons to be entrusted with licenses.
(Mr. Spencer was admonished for allowing prostitutes to assemble at his house and since he had `aggravated' his offence his license was refused.)

Became the BEDFORD ARMS by 1865


Mr. Frederick Wilkin applied new full licence at the Annual Licensing Session, Tuesday 30th August 1864. There was no opposition from the parishioners, but since the house had been closed for some time in consequence of the previous licence having been withdrawn, the application was declined.
