Robert Gurney complained to the Magistrates on Friday 14th February 1851 that his son was guilty of misconduct. A boy of 15 or 16 years of age, he was in the habit of kicking and abusing his father and also his sister. Eighteen months earlier, a surgeon had to attend to Mr. Gurney for more than a month owing  to the ill-treatment he had received from his son. The previous week the lad had beat his brother and sister severely and then went out and broke a window.
Fined 20s, but unable to pay, the youngster was committed to prison for twenty one days.

The licensee of this house was one of seven who were fined during early October 1853, for allowing drunkenness in their house or for selling at improper hours. The editorial commenting on the enforcement of law thought it would have been better if the clamp-down had commenced with the landlords of houses of a higher class.
