Monday 12th December 1859 - Fine of 5s for having house open at illegal hours and persons drinking therein, on the previous Saturday.

Identified as the FISHERMEN'S ARMS in report of court hearing 1859.

FISHERMANS TAVERN as 1861 census.

It was reported 30th June 1866 that Mr. Farman, beerhouse keeper of St. Peter's Road, sought compensation from Mr. (Alfred) Durrant, beerhouse keeper of Nelson Road. It was claimed that on 25th April 1866, Durrant had entered the house, drunk a glass of beer and abused Mrs. Farman in an outrageous manner, eventually giving her a black eye.
In defence it was said that the house had previously been a house of ill-fame. Durrant had been twitted by the landlady of having seduced a cousin of hers some twenty years previously and had irritated him. She had scratched his face, called him a seducer and seized him by the hair and `shruck murder to all eternity' ( Laughter in court ).
Mr. Farman had taken hold of Durrant and held him by the leg. He was unhurt, but lost a shirt button.
Although denied by Durrant, a witness confirmed that the landlady had been spit at and struck.
The Judge found Durrant responsible for the fracas and ordered him to pay £6 in damages with payment to be made within 14 days.
