Mr. W. Kingsborough announced 8th December 1792 that having left the Sprowston Blue Boar, he had taken on the Easton Dog and `Begs leave to return his sincere thanks to his former friends for their favours and informs them that he has now laid in a fresh stock of the best Wines and Spirituous Liquors, which he is determined to sell on the most reasonable terms, and the continuance of that support which he has experienced shall be retained by every intention in his power.'

William Kingsborough announced 9th September 1797 that the Annual Easton Sheep Shew would be held here, as usual, on 21st September. Dinner served at One o'clock.

Mrs Mary Buxton had previously been married to Thomas Blyth and by that marriage had four sons, one of whom was named Edgar. That son was father to Catherine, Alice, Frederick and C. E. Blyth, of the respective ages 12, 10, 7 and 4 years. Two of whom were inmates of the Orphan's Home, the other two were boarded at the expense of the Guardians of the Poor. Mrs. Buxton, a widow and grandmother of the four children was summoned Tuesday, 9th May 1876 to show cause why she should not be made to maintain them.
Mrs Buxton had resided at the Dog for fifty years and was doing a good trade and a rent of £130 per annum was being paid. She had 6 children by her first marriage and 9 by her second. She believed 10 of them were still alive. Her deceased husband had left "a good bit of debt" and by helping her children "a little bit", she had no money left. The rent was proven to be paid over the previous two or three years, by her son, Frederick.
It was said that it was a great pity that such a respectable old woman should have been put to the inconvenience of being brought before the Guardians.
Case dismissed by the Magistrates.
