John May is given in 1836 at an un-named beerhouse,
the address being 13 Surrey Street.


At the Licensing Sessions held Monday 7th February 1910, Messrs. Steward & Patteson Ltd, opposed the refusal to renew the licence.
They once had 22 houses in Lynn, but had already lost 9 to meet the desires of the Licensing Authority.
It was said that it was the only house still open in Surrey Street since two other houses in the neighbourhood had been closed. The SHOULDER OF MUTTON was at the corner of Surrey Street but the Earl Grey did more business than that house. A living was made by the tenant who had been at the house for 21 years.
Sales were an average of 85⅔ barrels of beer, 138 dozen bottles of beer, 26⅓ gallons of spirits and 130 dozen mineral waters.
Trade was mostly among tramps and travellers who would not be allowed to enter other houses in the district.
Chief Constable Payne said there were six other houses within 110 yards and the accommodation was limited.
Sergeant Hunt said the accommodation was poor and it was `badly lighted', but during his visits the number of customers was a good average number. There was no complaint against the tenant.
Licence renewed.



Referred for Compensation 9th February 1914
Licence extinct 11th January 1915
