Church Square 1850

Charlotte Street in 1853 & 1854

On the night of Friday 22nd April 1853, William Lacey, a militiaman, complained to the police that he had been turned out of his lodgings and returning with a constable, was again refused entry since it was said that he had not gone to his lodgings alone, but introduced a regiment as numerous as the militia. The officer of the company did not wish to press for the full penalty which was £5. Richard Turner was fined £2 10s on Saturday 23rd April 1853 for refusing to give accommodation to a soldier.

Lot No. 1 in the Sale by Auction of eight properties in Great Yarmouth, Thursday 15th May 1856.
A capital Freehold Public House with entrances on the Plain and one from Charlotte Street.

  It seems that, at least for a short period, William Lubbock, otherwise known as William Franklin, was licensee of this house. At the Sessions held at Maidstone, Kent, on Tuesday 7th September 1852, he was described as an insolvent debtor.
His past career was described as:
Formerly of Lynn, Norfolk, Cow Keeper and Milkman;
then of 27, Whiskin Street, Clerkenwell, Middlesex, Cow Keeper and Milkman;
then of Victoria Terrace, Lynn, Builder;
then of the Cock Tavern, Leadenhall Street, City of London, Licensed Victualler and Dealer in Tobacco;
then of the Mariners' Beer Shop, High Street, Shadwell, Middlesex, Licensed Beer Seller and Dealer in Tobacco;
then of Spring Gardens, Stepney, Middlesex, Baker and Milkman;
then of Judd Street, Sumerytown, Middlesex, Coffee House Keeper;
then of Duke Street, Smithfield, City of London, Coffee House Keeper;
then of New Church Street, Lisson Grove, Regent's Park, Coffee House Keeper;
then of the Debtors Prison, White Cross Street, City of London, a prisoner for debt;
then of the Artichoke, White Hart Yard, Drury Lane, Middlesex, Licensed Victualler and Dealer in Tobacco;
then of the White Hart, Folley Bridge, Surrey, Licensed Victualler and Dealer in Tobacco;
then of the WHITE HART, Yarmouth, Norfolk, Licensed Victualler and Dealer in Tobacco;
then of James Street, Cambridge, Licensed Beer Seller and dealer in Tobacco, Cow Keeper and Milkman;
then of Week Street, Maidstone, Kent, Licensed Beer Seller and Dealer in Tobacco;
then of the Crown and Glove, Stannington, near Sheffield, Licensed Victualler and Dealer in Tobacco ;
then of 14 Baslingthorpe Lane, Leeds, British Cordial Manufacturer;
and then and late of No. 6 Wilson Street, New Cross Road, Deptford, Kent, British Cordial Manufacturer.

( Note: A William Lubbock is found at the QUAY MILL TAVERN in 1846 and at the RAILWAY HOTEL in 1850. Seemingly a different person since he is then described as also a mast, block and pump maker?)
