It was reported in the Norfolk Chronicle of 24th March 1862 that publican James TAVIN claimed 6s 2d as an unpaid debt from farmer John Lawson Girdlestone of Terrington St Clement. The 6s being for spirits and the 2d for tobacco. Mrs `Tavin' had appeared to prove the case but `looked unutterable things' when told that the Tippling Act prevented the recovery of the 6s and that only the 2d could be claimed for which immediate payment was demanded by the court.

On Saturday 7th June 1862 Mr. Tann, horse-dealer and publican had his leg broken in two places as he was about to mount his horse outside the Highland Laddie. One report says that the horse ran back and caused him to awkwardly fall, another description was that he was thrown from his steed. It seems he had earlier fallen off near the Athenaeum. A third report in the Wisbech Chronicle described the injuries as a broken thigh, in two places.
