ISAAC SPENCER 1863
Accused of running a disorderly house 28th August 1863 - Case dismissed.
HENRY DYE * 1865



On Friday 28th August 1863 Isaac Spencer was accused, upon the evidence of police-constable Cutting and Sergeant Frost of allowing disorderly persons, prostitutes and others to assemble in his house on the previous Wednesday at 2 a.m. Hearing a great disturbance the police had entered the house and found seven or eight people with drink before them. The prostitutes were rowdy and swearing. For Mr. Spenser it was said that the claims were much exaggerated  and it was a trumped up charge by the police who desired to crush the small houses, while they curried favour with, and passed over in silence, the faults of the larger establishments.
The Bench dismissed the case.


On 29th August 1865, Henry Dye applied for and was granted, a licence for a house in King Street, location given as Near the Church. The name of the house was reported in the Norfolk News of 2nd September 1865 to be the WHITE ROSE, but no house of that name is otherwise recorded in King Street.
