Mrs MOORE 1843




On Tuesday 26th December 1843 the Magistrates discussed the continuation of this `low house'. The Mayor wished to suppress all those houses known to bear a bad character.
The tenant, Mrs. Moore said she had recently taken on the house and had not been aware that it had a bad reputation. She had been advised by Mr. Youngs that she would do very well in the house. She believed the house could not be run in a respectable way and would be glad to be rid of it.
The house was said to stand in an open public situation and was more exposed to public view than many worse houses in the city.
"This is a house that ought to put the brewers to shame".
The Magistrates decided to discontinue the licence.
