On Tuesday 19th January 1858, Elizabeth Thompson was charged with having her house open for the sale of beer at fifteen minutes past eleven on the previous Sunday. Six men had been found drinking there by Sergeant Smith. Case dismissed upon the costs of 7s 6d being paid.

At the Annual Licensing Sessions held Monday 23rd August 1858 it was heard that Elizabeth Thompson had previously been charged for having been found selling beer during prohibited hours on a Sunday.  However since that event, the house had been well conducted. Licence renewal granted.
