In court Wednesday 23rd December 1863, William Yallop was accused by police-constable Nursey of selling beer at illegal hours on the previous Sunday. Several men had been found in the house at twenty minutes before one o'clock on Sunday morning. Mr. Yallop let the constable in when he had knocked at the door and claimed that he welcomed the visit since he had been unable to get the persons to leave the house. He had not drawn any beer after mid-night.
Case dismissed.

Licence provisionally refused 08.03.1921 and referred to Compensation.
