House No. 352 on 1845 Magistrates list.


Deeds recorded from 1745

Listed in S&P documents as formerly the FLOWER IN HAND.

Licensee William Wier was charged with selling beer at unlawful hours on Sunday 29th August 1852. The defendant claimed that being new to the trade he was unaware of the regulations. The police said the house was generally conducted in a very orderly fashion. The defendant was not fined, but discharged upon payment of 7/6d costs.

At the 1906 Licensing Sessions it was heard that the house was `down a yard with the front door some way distant from the street.'
It was `difficult for supervision by the tenant and the police. The tenant was a boat builder, letting boats extensively on the back river. 11 other licensed houses were within 200 yards.'

The licence was referred to Compensation 07.02.1906 and the house closed under Compensation 23.08.1907.





In spite of the house closing in 1907 Kelly's directories for 1908 and 1912 still give William Brett at the premises as licensee.
