One of 40 houses named as being engaged for the Reception of Freeholders for Sir John Woodhouse and Sir Edward Astley's Friends on the Day of Election, Wednesday 14th April 1784.

Announced September 1807 to be for sale by private contract, house then in the occupation of James Lane.

To Let with Possession from Michaelmas 1843.
Apply to the tenant, Mr. Mortimer, who is to retire from the Business.

At an inquest held in the house Friday 27th August 1852, it was heard that former landlord Mr. Ward, at the time of his departure from the house, had given a bottle of gin to his brother, who was ostler at the house. By unfortunate error the bottle had previously held turpentine. The brother had in turn given some of the gin to other persons, two being at the skittle ground of the White Hart at about noon on Friday 20th August and both partook rather freely. Returning at about 2:30 pm, one of the two, Matthew Green, was found to be quite dead.
A verdict of `Died from drinking gin' was recorded.

The lease being expired, the sale of all the House Furniture, China, Glass, Bagatelle Table, Etc, Etc. of Mr. J. Jolly were to be sold on Thursday 21st October 1852. For convenience of sale, all of the items had been removed to the BELL, Bawdeswell.

It was noted that the wholesale Fish Market for the City Of Norwich was held on these premises.
