William Sheward had purchased the house in 1868.
`Upon taking to drink he is said to have confessed to the police that he had murdered his wife in 1851. He had chopped her into small pieces and distributed her about the City. At his trial 24th March 1869, he retracted his confession saying that he was drunk at the time of making the statement. He was however found guilty, convicted and sentenced to death.
At that point he again confessed.'
It is said that he became the first person to be privately executed, by the hangman Calcraft, at Norwich City Gaol.

114⅝ barrels of beer sold in the final year of trading.

Although closed 1958 S&P held the licence until 1960, when they advised the Magistrates 25th September that they wished to surrender the licence.

Property sold to Norwich Corporation.
