Owner John Day St MARTIN at OAK

John Day is described in 1783 as a Woolfactor & Beer Brewer at 38 Bethel Street.
With a Warehouse at 39 Bethel Street and the
Brewing Office at 94 Coslany Street.

All persons indebted to the Estate and Effects of John Day, deceased, Beer Brewer and Wool and Yarn Factor were desired to pay their respective debts according to a notice published 18th October 1794 and again 8th November 1795.

The brewery and dwelling house of John Day, along with several other properties were offered for sale
as advertised in the Norfolk Chronicle of 11th October 1794.
( Also advertised 18th & 25th October plus 1st & 8th November 1794 )

An auction of County houses was advertised in the Norfolk Chronicle of 2nd May 1895 to take place on 9th May 1795.

It would appear that the majority of Lot 1 went unsold in the first sale.
There was a third auction advertised in the Norfolk Chronicle of 17th June 1797.
At this later auction Mr John Morse purchased Lot 1.
