Mr. Mackley was fined 2s 6d with 11s costs on Wednesday 24th March 1852 for having his house open for the sale of beer after midnight of Saturday 20th March. Two constables had found the house open after twelve and again after one o'clock on the Sunday morning. Unfortunately the record does not identify the licensee by Christian name. It was probably Richard Mackley, but it could have been John.

At the licensing session held Monday 23rd August 1858 it was heard that John Winter had allowed card playing. The previous character of the house had been good, but Winter was a new tenant. Licence renewal was granted.

Licence removed to the MORRISON LODGE 12th October 1935.
House sold to Norwich Corporation 1936 in slum clearance scheme.

Listed in S&P documents as formerly known as the COW.

House no. 484 on 1845 Magistrates list.
