June 1866 - Sarah Banham fined 14s or 14 days for breaking a window of Mr William Clarkes public house. She had gone to fetch her husband who spent all their money there and stayed until 2 or 3 in the morning.

William Clarke was accused of being open out of hours 11.03.1866.
The house was then given as the PRINCE ALBERT.

Thomas Palmer was summoned before the Bench Saturday 2nd February 1867 for selling beer out of hours on Sunday 27th January. Police constable Buckle had found the front door open and two men in the tap-room; a glass of ale stood upon a table. The defendant said that his brother-in-law had arrived at the house to take the defendant's children out and had been given a glass of ale by his wife. The Chief Constable elected not to press the case any further and it was accordingly dismissed.
