In February 1857, Samuel Francis Pye is living in Cherry Street, Lakenham, and described as in no business or employment and an Insolvent Debtor, due to appear in Court for examination of his debts, estate and effects, on 24th February 1857.
His previous positions were, a Grocer and Dealer in Tea, Tobacco and Provisions, and Commission Agent, in Cherry Street; before that lodging at the Artichoke Inn, Magdalen Gates, in no business or employment; previously at the Wine Coopers' Arms, St. Augustines, Wine, Spirit and Porter Merchant and Licensed Dealer in Tobacco; before that in lodgings at the Artichoke, Clerk at the Telegraph Office, Eastern Counties Railway Station and before in that occupation but lodging at Manchester Buildings, Union Place, Norwich. (In 1851, 15 year old Samuel Pye is given at 12 Manchester Buildings and occupation given as a clerk.)

Exact date that Mr. Pye was at this house has yet to be determined. Given his age in 1851, it seems likely that he was only an employee at the Wine Coopers Arms rather than the licensee.
