The property of the late Mr. Thomas Sword, deceased.
"A freehold Messuage, used as a Tavern, and well known as the NELSON TAVERN, situate on the Upper side of the Market Place, Norwich, and containing an excellent Bar, Parlour, Sitting and Club Rooms, and three Sleeping Rooms. Replete with every convenience, and good Cellarage. The above is in one of the best situations in the City for trade and is in the occupation of Mr. Henry Brown.
Outgoings, Land Tax £3.
This lot is subject to an agreement for the occupation thereof for Seven years from the 24th day of June 1849, at the yearly rent of £25".

On Tuesday 16th October 1855 an application to transfer the licence from Mr. Tidman to John Fuller, was refused on the grounds that the outgoing tenant had not paid the rates. The owner of the house, Mr. Seaman, refused to pay the tenant's debt and would appeal the licence refusal.
One of the magistrates, Mr. Palmer, said that he would be pleased to see Mr. Seaman in court to answer why brewers put tenants in their houses possessed of little money, yet took a bill of sale from them, and when they became insolvent took their goods so that other creditors had nothing.

Licence given special consideration August 1867 owing to past improper conduct and in consequence, refused.

On Saturday 7th September 1867, landlord Joseph Manning was found guilty of an assault on Margaret Manning, his wife, and was sentenced to two month's imprisonment and in default of paying costs, a further fourteen days.
