Neatishead publican, Joseph Hastings offered a half guinea reward for return of a Silver Watch with Steel Chain, an old Brass Key and a Silver Seal. The items had been lost during transit between Barton Turf and Wroxham Castle (PH).
Mr Hastings is confirmed as licensee in the 1794 Licence Register.

In the evening of Thursday 19th March 1818, Edmund King was killed when his cart overturned within 200 yards of leaving the White Horse, kept by acting constable Robert Watts.  Mr. Horner and Mr. Riches sought to place the body in Watt's house but were met with a complete refusal. Mr. Horner then instructed that the door be broken open and in no way would he allow the body to be put in an outhouse. Eventually, after the body had been lying in the road for upwards of three quarters of an hour, a door was opened from inside and the body was carried into one of the rooms.
At the inquest, the following day, Mr. Horner and Mr. Riches were praised by the very respectable Jury, but were most disgusted at Watt's behaviour.
A verdict of Accidental Death was recorded.

From Harry Cox of Catfield to Peter Kennedy, 1953-56, quoted by Phil Heath-Coleman in his Mustrad Article 284, 'Harry Cox - 'Ain't that beautiful?'        (CH B2-1-31b)

'Harry recalled how as a boy of four he would accompany his father to the pub: "He had that fiddle and he used to go and play at the pub on a Saturday night and I used to go along o' him." There he would 'cap round' for coppers. Harry told Peter Kennedy, "I used to go everywhere along o' him. He used to play the fiddle at nights, up at the White Horse. I used to go along o' him and sit on the window-board, back o' him - a 'little old customer' I was. He used to play there every Saturday night, he used to get a shilling for his time. . . . They used to allow him a pint or two of beer. He used to go there and draw the custom. Of course, if there was music there, that time o' day, the people would stop there in these pubs.'
