The TALBOT by 1890.

On Thursday 25th August 1864, Catherine Chubbock, ` a girl upon the town' entered the premises and requested some liquor, as she was very drunk the landlord refused to serve her, whereupon she became very abusive and disorderly, breaking a window to the value of 1/6d and assaulting the landlord.
In court the following Saturday, she was described as a ` Disorderly Prostitute' and fined 11/6d plus the cost of the window; in default Twenty-one days' hard labour.

On 12th October 1865 Hendicus Erenshuisen, a crewman of a Dutch galliot lying in Yarmouth Harbour, went to the City of London with the cook, Alfred Huesman. They sat in the `snug' from seven o'clock in the evening until some time between eight and nine o'clock, when the captain and other crew joined them. After a further hour and a half the captain directed the crew to return to ship, but Erenshuisen refused. A fight ensued between the captain and Erenshuisen which was broken up by another member of the crew. Erenshuisen then turned on the cook and when the landlord intervened, the accused took a knife from under his slop and struck out, fatally stabbing the cook in the heart.
After a lengthy trial and summing up by the Judge, the jury gave a verdict of manslaughter. The Judge awarded 20 years penal servitude.
