Beachman Francis Boulter was charged with being drunk and disorderly and of committing a violent assault on the police having left the Rose & Thistle, Gaol Street between the hours of twelve and one o'clock on the night of Saturday 22nd August 1864, and along with others, created a great disturbance. Constable Secret had asked them to disperse and go home but they refused and Secret was knocked to the ground. Some time later Constables Secret and Frost went to the home of Boulter where Frost received a heavy blow over the right eye.
Boulter was fined £3 and costs for the assault on Secret, £2 and costs for the assault on Frost and in default sentenced to one month's imprisonment with hard labour, for each offence.
Unfortunately there was no mention in the report of who was licensee of the Rose & Thistle at the time.

At the Annual Licensing Day, Tuesday 15th August 1864, Samuel Fox successfully applied for the transfer of this licence to the ALEXANDRA TAVERN.

Note : In 1863 Cobb gives a ROSE & THISTLE in King Street with Thomas Bullimore as licensee. However in the same year White has him at the SHAKESPEARE so it is possible that he transferred from one house to the other in that year.
The Cobb directory appears to show King Street in error.
