John Harris appeared before the Court of Relief of Insolvent Debtors on 16th March 1837. Then described as formerly innkeeper at Kings Lynn, afterwards lodging at the Lamb Inn, Norwich, unemployed and late of Stoke Holy Cross, unemployed.

Thomas New was charged with assaulting Robert Brooks who had entered the Horse & Groom upon hearing cries of murder coming from within.

Address given as 2 Chapel Street in 1891.

Referred for Compensation 08.02.1909

Licence refused at Compensation Authority meetings of 21st and 23rd June 1909. Reported as an alehouse, owned by Hogge & Seppings and run by licensee William Sellis.

~

At the Compensation Meeting of Wednesday 22nd December 1909 it was stated that trade was :-
Beer, 82 5/8 barrels at 10/- ( For 10 years = £413 )
Mineral waters £130
Rent £12 at 18 years
Depreciation of fixtures £11
Giving a total 10 year value of £770
Value of property without licence was £231 ( Agreed with valuer )
Total claim was £539

For the brewers, Mr Maule said that trade had increased very much, as they had a very popular tenant.

The valuer, Mr Miles, said that converting the house to a private dwelling would cost £35 and the rent would be £17/15/-.
The committee offered £500, which was accepted with 10% going to the tenant.

~

At the licensing session of Monday 7th March it was reported that William Sillis was the licence holder and it was hoped that the magistrates would allow Mr Sillis to take on the licence of the Anchor of Hope. It was the intention of brewers Hogge & Seppings to close the Horse & Groom as soon as the tenant could be transferred. It was stated that the Horse & Groom could be closed within a day or two of the move. The application was granted.

~

Licensee William Sellis was at the ANCHOR OF HOPE by 14th March 1910 but on the 7th March 1910 one Edward Payne had been ejected from the Horse & Groom for throwing beer over Mrs Sellis and for using bad language. Payne later returned and kicked the shutters and then deliberately broke a window. Appearing before the magistrates Payne had expressed sorrow for the damage caused. A conviction of using obscene language had been his only previous misdemeanour, for which he had been fined 5 shillings. For his latest offence he was required to pay expenses of 8/6d for the window and a fine of 5/- with 6d costs.
