On the evening of Monday 17th February 1862 the Pioneer Lodge of the M.U.I.O.F. ( Odd Fellows) celebrated the eleventh anniversary of the establishment of the lodge. About sixty members partook and an excellent dinner was provided by host Longhurst.
Brother Wells occupied the chair and Brother Brown the vice-chair.
A most harmonious evening was spent.

At the September 1863 licensing sessions, this house was described by one of the magistrates a really a brothel of the very foulest description.
The application to transfer the licence from William Longhurst to Edward Bonfellow was refused.

In court November 1865, it was heard that James Fox had been stabbed in a fight which had taken place in the Concert-room of the Foundry Arms.
Joseph White had initially been picked out from an identity parade as being the culprit, but in court Fox said that he thought he was not the man. It was put to Fox that he had been tampered with by the prisoner's friends and he eventually admitted that he had been spoken to by somebody as he came to court.
The Mayor remanded the prisoner for a week and warned Fox and the public-house landlord, whose memories seemed to have failed, that they should consider the manner in which they would give evidence when they next came before the Bench.

Conveyed 17th June 1884 from George Lucas, William James Steward, John Baker and Jane Parker Ferrier to Donald Steward and Henry Staniforth Patteson.
