William Annison is given as a fishmonger at St Benedicts Lane in 1864.
Beerhouse at Bridge Street in 1865.

Licence application by William Annison of the BRIDGE TAVERN, Bridge Street, refused 29th August 1865 on the grounds that there were already three or four public houses almost next door to each other in that neighbourhood. This appears to be the same house as the FISHMONGERS ARMS, named from 1866.

On Tuesday 16th January 1866, William Annison pleaded guilty to assaulting his wife, Mrs. Annison who was in turn charged with scandalising Harriet Dunham, the defendant's servant. Being a domestic matter the parties were advised to settle the matter amongst themselves and the cases were dismissed.

In court Saturday 2nd June 1866, William Annison was charged by Sergeant Guiet of keeping his beerhouse open for the sale of beer on 31st May 1866, at 11:55. Fined 1s and costs.

On Thursday 19th September 1867 William Annison was again before the Bench accused of wilful damage. His immediate neighbour had painted the word ` Photographer ' on a narrow strip of wall that separated the two properties. Annison had painted over the word with whitewash, claiming that the wall was his property.
Photographer Edmund Jubs proved that the word had been painted on the wall, some eight years previously and that was some three years before Annison had taken possession of the beerhouse.
Annison was fined 1s plus 10s damages and costs.

On Saturday 1st February 1868, William Annison claimed payment of £5 12s 4d was due to him from currier William Hulley.
In an account presented to the Court it was recorded that unpaid goods, supplied in 1867 were :- Cigars 15s, Tobacco 1s 7½d, Selmon (salmon) 8s, bread 6d, six bottles of Ginger Beer 6d, Sheep's Liver 8d, three Herengs (herrings) 4½d, four pounds of Beef 3s 4d and Best Ale 410 pints £5 12s 4½d. ( Of which 291 pints of ale appeared on the account over the previous five days - laughter in Court)
At the start of the hearing Hulley had paid £2 10s and the Court concluded that the sum was sufficient to cover what was fairly due, Annison having agreed in his examination that he had shared some of his customer's liberality.
