28th July 1823. Mr. Beloe offered a One Guinea Reward for the safe return of a Russia Bound Pocket Book and Paper Contents, lost at Salhouse Boat Staithe.

24th March 1836 - Stephen Neale assigned his Estate and Effects to his Trustees for the benefit of his Creditors.
It was published Saturday 28th May 1836 that the Creditors of Stephen Neale, late Innkeeper, would receive a first and final dividend of Ten Shillings in the Pound.

Lot no 43 in sale by auction 14th to 17th September 1841 of the Coltishall Brewery.
Freehold sold to Mr. Unthank for the sum of £1,110.

Also given as the CASTLE INN

Mr. J. Blackwood announced 5th November 1864 that he had taken the Inn and offered Wines, Spirits, Cigars, &c., of the Best Quality.

 Destroyed by fire 2nd June 1910.
The thatched building building could not be saved since the single well could not produce sufficient water to extinguish the fire.
Landlord Sydney Smith was insured and he and his wife were able to rescue most of the furniture including a safe from an upstairs room.
One of their pets, a bird was saved, but their cat refused to leave the building and did not survive.

The licence was held by Bullards Brewery until the house was rebuilt, apparently re-opening in July 1912.

On Saturday 15th October 1938, the licence was transferred from Mr. Willis to Mr. Lake. The Chairman paid tribute to the outgoing tenant for the manner that he had conducted business during the thirty years he had been running the house. The Police Superintendent echoed the statement.
(It seems possible that Mr. Willis had managed the house since c1910 to 1912, during the period the brewery were holding the licence, giving a total period of 28 years for Mr. Willis.)
The Chairman wished him a happy retirement, to which Willis replied that publicans were born, not made and he was going into private life to try to become a respectable citizen.
