The BARLEYCORN (Sir John Barleycorn) adjoined the brewery.

Charles Clarke is possibly the founder, but by 1839 the Dotheridge family appear to be in control although Charles Clarke is still in residence in 1851. (Dotheridge appears as supplier of several houses in the 1845 Magistrates list of licensed premises).

On Friday 21st August 1863, Mr. Charles Clarke, of St Miles Brewery, treated his workmen to breakfast at Alby HORSE SHOES and then on to Cromer for luncheon. After participating in various sports they returned to Alby for an excellent repast, provided by Mrs. Pearce. A most convivial evening was passed and the men returned home highly delighted with their treat.

On 29th December 1866 notice of a False Rumour appeared in the newspapers.
On Saturday 22nd December 1866 a Fire had been said to Destroy the entire Brewery and other premises and that Business had been suspended.
Charles Clarke & Company begged to contradict the same since the Fire was contained to the Malting Premises only, they were already temporarily repaired and no stoppage of business had taken place.

By 1867 Charles Clarke is recorded at the PHILADELPHIA BREWERY
