William Henry Briggs applied for a full licence Monday 23rd August 1858 - Refused.

Beerhouse keeper Henry Briggs was charged Monday 2nd September 1861 of keeping his house open during prohibited hours. Police-sergeant Bedford proved having found four men and a woman in the house at about twenty minutes past twelve o'clock on the night of Thursday 29th August 1861. In defence it was said that Police-constable Blake had visited the house at half past ten and took four glasses of beer from the jug upon the table. Blake admitted to taking two glasses of beer. The Mayor said that the fact that the policeman did wrong, did not exonerate the defendant who had been convicted before, and in this case the offence was worse since a policeman had been bribed. The defendant was fined 20s with 11s costs. Constable Blake was to be suspended and his case put before the Watch Committee.

Henry Briggs was charged on Tuesday 3rd April 1866 of having his house open for the sale of beer during the hours of divine service on Good Friday. Police-sergeant Kirk had observed a female leave the house with a jug at about ten minutes past eleven. Inside he saw two men standing at the bar, one holding a glass of ale. In another room two men were playing cards, which Briggs attempted to conceal. It was argued that the defendant's uncle, an infirm Chelsea pensioner, had drawn beer for one of the two men who had assisted him home. It was without the permission of Mr. Briggs.
There being three previous convictions against Briggs he was fined £3 with 8s costs and a warning not to repeat the offence or he would suffer the full penalty.

John Daniels applied, on Monday 24th August 1891, for a music and singing licence for the convenience of members of a fishing and a political club which used the club-room. Application granted.
