On Thursday 4th January 1844, Isaac Haylett was charged with stealing a sheep, the property of Joseph Wiley of Sprowston. Denmark Dunch was charged with receiving the sheep knowing it to be stolen.
Giving Queen's evidence against Haylett, Mr Dunch seems to escaped any punishment.
However, Mr. Haylett had a previous conviction of felony and so received a sentence of 15 years' transportation.


September 1859 - Licensee John Fake charged Sarah Ann Wright, shoemaker of St. James, a haggard-looking and miserably clad female, with stealing two sheets and other bed linen. Acting as an occasional servant, the prisoner had a kind of general liberty to visit the pawnbrokers whenever she considered that necessity justified it. Fake had asked her to give up all of the pawn tickets, but those for the articles in question were missing.
The Magistrates concluded that she had no case to answer.

On Monday 17th October 1859, John Fake was accused of allowing persons of different sexes, above the age of ten and not being married , to sleep in the same apartment. Inspector Clarke had discovered, at 5:30 am the previous Saturday, a man and wife, with a little child, a single young woman and an old man, all occupying the same sleeping compartment. The house was said to be very clean.
Mr. Fake admitted the accusation and said that he could not read the bye-laws that had been delivered to him and the house had been thrown into confusion since the death of his wife.
The case was dismissed in consequence of the notification delivered by the Board of Health did not give the penalty attaching to the clause infracted by Mr. Fake.

At 37 Barrack Street pre 1900.

Licence provisionally refused 05.02.1935 and referred to Compensation.
