Rebecca Musk reported the theft of one tumbler glass, the property of Henrietta Musk, December 1870.
20th December 1870 : John Carter, Nehemiah Carter and George Henry Denmark, all of Great Ellingham, were found guilty of the crime and each sentenced to fourteen days imprisonment, with hard labour.

(Mrs) H Musk is only identified in 1872 & 1877 directories as a licensed victualler, no name of house or location is given.



Although awarded a full licence in 1867, the house is only recorded under beer retailers in 1922.

On Friday 10th March 1939 the licence was transferred to the NEW INN, Watton.
The brewers confirmed that George Moore would be allowed to remain at the house, if he wished and would receive as much as if the house had been closed by compensation.
Alfred E. H. Lee, outside manager for Morgans Brewery, said that there would still be ample licensed facilities in Attleborough and there was another house about a mile from the Royal Oak. "If people have to go a mile for a drink, what is that? Quite a nice little exercise".

George Moore died in 1941.
His daughter Mabel continued living at the house until she passed away in the 1970's
