MARQUIS OF WELLINGTON 1822

Spirit licence lost **7th September 1847 owing to disorderly manner in which the house had been conducted. The magistrates said it was illegal for them to allow transfer of licence to a brewery clerk until a new tenant was found. The brewers argued that the conduct of the house had not changed since 1845 or 1846 and licences had been renewed then. One of the magistrates, Mr. Willett said that he had made up his mind that he would sign no licence to a house that had been proved to be a common brothel. For the brewers, Mr. Steward accepted that disorderly tenants should be turned out and the houses be shut for a time, until their bad character was destroyed. The 10 magistrates agreed that the decision to withdraw the licence would stand.

Title of Freehold property sold by Y,C&Y Partnership to Y,C&Y Company, for completion 01.02.1898.

At the 1908 Sessions it was said that this was the worst house in the area. The accommodation was very small and the sanitary arrangements unsatisfactory. There were 14 other licensed houses within 200 yards. The house was frequented by women of bad character and convicted thieves, one of whom had recently assaulted a constable on the premises. A charge was pending against the licensee for being drunk in his own premises.

Licence provisionally refused 05.02.1908 and referred for compensation.

Closed under Compensation 01.09.1908

 

** One sessions report gives the date of sitting as Tuesday 7th September, but a second report gives Wednesday 8th September 1847.
