Mr. Vines was accused of having sold beer at illegal hours on 17th and 18th April 1870. The magistrates dismissed the case Saturday 23rd April 1870 through lack of evidence.

On Tuesday 28th June 1870 it was heard that an inspector had entered the house on 23rd June and discovered seven deficient pewter measures. He seized two of the worst. Mr. Vines said that the pots were for porter and that if the Bench studied his books, they would see that he did not draw porter at all.
The charge was explained to Vines several times but he could not understand it.
He was fined 5s with 17s 6d costs, or in default, fourteen days imprisonment.

Mr. Vines is not named in 1869 or 1872 directories (In Norwich).
William Vines died in Norwich December 1887, age 67.


There was no application for licence renewal at the Sessions held Tuesday 27th August 1872.
The renewal had previously been ordered to be brought under the notice of the Licensing Magistrates.
