    -
Licensees :
JOHN LEEDS MASON
& carpenter & bailiff
1839 - (1861)
HENRY LEEDS MASON 1859 - 1864

Location of St. Stephens assumed from the 1861 census.

New (Full) licence granted 21st August 1855.
Name of licensee reported as John Henry Mason.

At the sessions held 19th August 1862 the licensee was one of many who were reprimanded for omitting to assist the police, were in the habit of allowing prostitutes to assemble or conducted themselves in a manner that, although they had not been summoned or fined, yet were considered by the magistrates to be improper persons to be entrusted with licenses.
(Mr. Henry Mason was admonished for allowing prostitutes to assemble at his house and since he had `aggravated' his offence, his license was refused, but apparently allowed following appeal since he is again listed here in 1864.)
