The house was engaged for Freeholders, the Friends of Sir Edward Astley, Bart. and Thomas William Coke, Esq. on Wednesday 14th April 1784, being the Day of Election. (One of 53 such houses in Norwich)


One of 36 Norwich houses opened for the reception of Voters in the interest of Mr. Windham and Mr. Coke on election day, Thursday 13th November 1806.


The name of the Hundred for which the house was appropriated was to be displayed at each house. Location as `Near the Church' in 1845.

It was reported January 1864 that William Briggs had kept the Queen Caroline for 35 years without complaint and in consequence his fine for selling out of hours, imposed  Wednesday 13th January, was the smallest possible.
( The 35 years would put Mr. Briggs in charge of the house from at least 1829, perhaps he was a manager, or was the 35 years a fantasy? )


Spirit licence transferred to the BRANFORD STORES April 1925 when the house was closed and sold.
( Licence surrendered 06.04.1925. ).





House No. 348 on 1845 Magistrates list.
