  George Henry Stratton, before being a publican, was a plumber and glazier. When he died, he left everything to his widow, Sarah Ann.
She re-married to George Vurley on 13th December 1896.
There were three children by the first marriage and one by the second, but that one died.
The licence, in her name, was transferred to Mr. Vurley when they married.
She was assaulted by him in January 1897 and again in May when she complained of him neglecting her business.
In July 1898 he turned her and the children out into the street. When she returned in the morning, he had slapped her.
Up to the 12th June 1900, he constantly ill-treated her. On that night there was a severe tempest and after beating her, he again threw her, and the children, out into the street. They had barely any garments on and feared injury from the storm. They did not return to the house.
On Monday 25th June 1900 the Bench granted a judicial separation order and ordered Mr. Vurley to pay all costs.

All the valuable Household Furniture and Effects of Samuel Tuthill were offered for Sale by Auction on Monday and Tuesday, 21st and 22nd April 1845 since he had disposed of the Business.
The sale actually took place 28th and 29th  April 1845.

In court Monday 20th May 1850, the police accused Samuel Strutt of allowing card playing. Strutt said that he was not present and had not sanctioned the game, but the prosecuting police-officer said he was in the same room. Strutt said that as soon as he was aware of the card playing he put a stop to it and in any event, the customers were not playing for liquor or money. The Magistrates took that final statement to confirm his knowledge of the game.
Samuel Strutt was fined 10s and 8s 6d costs for allowing card playing, the offence taking place on 4th May 1850.

For Sale by Auction Thursday 26th November 1857, late in the occupation of Mr. Strutt, deceased.
Containing Entrance, two Parlours, bad Liquor Bar, Kitchen, back Kitchen, Larder, large Club Room, four Bed Rooms and Attics, capital arched Cellars capable of holding thirty barrels, Brew-house with Chamber over, Coal-house, Stabling, lock-up Gig-house, Sheds, and enclosed Yards suitable for fifty Horses and Gigs, Hay-loft, Harness-house, pump of excellent Water and other Conveniences.

The Lynn Advertiser of 3rd June 1910 reported that James Graver, a haytrusser of Fakenham was charged with being drunk and disorderly on the evening of 5th May. He had refused to leave the premises and used `very disgusting language'. The defendant left the premises upon arrival of police Inspector Powles. Defendant was fined 20s with 4s costs.
