Part of Freehold Estate sold by auction 8th June 1813. Lot 2, a Public-house called the COOPERS, in the occupation of Grimson.

Recorded 1822 as the JOLLY COOPERS

Address as 13 Princes Street from 1901.

At the  held Monday 7th March 1910

The Chief Constable objected to licence renewal at the adjourned general annual licensing meeting held Monday 7th February 1910. It was claimed that the house was structurally unsuitable and structurally deficient for the business and had been ill conducted.
Messrs Bullards & Sons undertook to provide plans for the next meeting and to undertake alterations.
Licence not renewed.

On 7th March 1910 it was stated that the house consisted of a small bar and a small porter room, both fronting the street and separated by a wall, supervision being only possible through a small pigeon-hole window. The sitting-room was at the rear of these two rooms, whilst still further to the rear was another room, over which supervision from the bar was impossible.. The staff could not supervise the whole house. During the past year, considerable annoyance had been caused, generally on a Friday and Saturday night, mainly by young people aged between 17 and 21. A piano was played in the back room, often played by a customer. The passage leading to it was generally crowded with young girls and fellows.
In defence it was said that the customers where mainly soldiers and they were fond of jollification. The police reported that it could take them 2 or 3 minutes to get to the back of the house on busy nights owing to the crowds. Some 40 to 50 people had been counted in the place at one time.
Licence provisionally refused and referred to Compensation.

Closed under Compensation 30th December 1911.
