Address as 92 Magdalen Street in 1783.

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.

Thomas Wright applied, on Monday 24th August 1891, for a music and singing licence for the bar-parlour. Granted.


According to S&P records Arthur Wright (Son of Thomas) took over in 1922. He does not appear in the Licence Registers until some 10 years later, presumably when his mother, Phoebe gave up the licence.

Premises closed 29.05.1955 but licence held by S&P until 1964.

Demolished.
