The 1858 Post Office Directory gives two entries for the Allies, one as at Heigham with H. Thompson and the other at Cross Street with J. W. Watts.

On Tuesday 29th March 1859, John Bennett was charged with assaulting his wife. Upon the case being called it was said that Mrs. Bennett did not wish to proceed with the complaint. Since she had brought several such complaints before the magistrates on previous occasions and always refused to give evidence at the last minute, it was determined that the case must continue. Upon hearing the circumstances of the assault, Mr. Bennett was required to pay £40 with two sureties of £20 to keep the peace for 12 months.

There are also two entries in the 1859 directory by Rogers.
William Cattermoul is given at Bedford Street, Unthank Road and John Bennett is given at Upper Heigham.
